What I Eat As A Vegan Breastfeeding Mom

What I Eat As A Vegan Breastfeeding Mom

Another hodge podge of things that I’ve been eating as a nursing mama. This batch includes a lot of good stuff that I ate while visiting Delray, FL. You can totally tell which meals are from there – they look much more vibrant than the ones I am eating at home, haha! Fell in love with the vegan food scene down there. Donuts, acai bowls, farm fresh greens, and TONS of ripe ripe ripe organic fruit. It was the life.

Just another round-up of what I’ve been eating lately. I am on a hot sauce kick, and you can definitely tell from the below. Trying to eat healthier, but it has been a bit of a struggle over here. Getting back on track is so hard! Anyone else feel me?

Lazy Vegan Meal Ideas

What Lazy Vegans Eat: 90 Meal Ideas

One of the most common misconceptions about eating plant-based/vegan is that it takes forever to prepare a good meal. Or that it’s all about frozen meals/entrees. While frozen vegan food is awesome (Amy’s non-dairy mac and cheese is life), it’s not healthy to rely on packaged vegan food all the time. There’s plenty of lazy vegan meals that can be made at home with simple ingredients (and cheap)! Here’s a large compilation of (90+!) vegan meal and snack ideas that take little to no time to prepare.

Vegan Peach Smoothie Bowl

Sweet Peach Smoothie Bowl

Good morning! I never got around to sharing the recipe for this bowl after I shared it on Instagram in the past. It’s gorgeous and delicious, so might as well.

Also just a little update on life over here. Willow is coming up on 4 months, and I still can’t believe it. Time is absolutely flying. The holidays helped make it fly by, too. The day after Christmas, I took down all the decor and spruced up the house a bit. I organized and made room for new things (especially Willow’s gifts… SO MANY). It feels good to be organized and cleaned up before the New Year. The weather has been so cold here… in the negatives some mornings. We haven’t gotten out too much and have been laying low and bundled up at home. While I tend to get a little stir crazy some days, I welcome the quiet lately. Focusing on putting together more posts for you all. Any topics you’d like covered? I’m open to anything!

I don’t think we’ll be doing anything crazy for New Year’s Eve this year. Honestly, I don’t have the energy and Willow is still so young. The last thing I need is to mess up her sleeping schedule, because she has been soooo good. 9 hour stretches! We’re lucky with this little girl.

Anyways, just wanted to touch base and share an old recipe. I hope you all have an awesome holiday weekend, and I will be back in the New Year!

Vegan Eggless Breakfast Burrito

Eggless Breakfast Burrito

Breakfast burritos are one of my all-time favorite morning staples. I love tofu scramble breakfast burritos, but I don’t always have tofu on hand. But honestly, who needs it when you have a ton of other protein-packed ingredients at your disposal. Filled with sweet potatoes, quinoa, black beans, and tempeh, this eggless breakfast is wholesome, colorful, and filling.

With Willow, it’s hard for me to make and enjoy breakfast some days. What I love about this recipe is that I can prepare all these ingredients ahead of time and store away for use all during the week. On Saturday mornings when Joe can hang with her, I usually prepare 5 sweet potatoes in the oven to stash away in the fridge for a quick and healthy grab. I make a large batch of quinoa (versatile for any meal, really) and marinate and bake tempeh to keep on hand. The rest of the ingredients are easy enough to toss in quickly. In just 5 minutes, I have myself a filling and nutritious plant-based breakfast to kick off my morning. It pays to prepare and bulk cook!

What I Eat As A Vegan Breastfeeding Mom

Over two months as a breastfeeding mama and there has been no shortage of good food over here. I am definitely hungrier than usual, but have been trying to eat as well as I can. Being home does make this tough… especially when it’s too easy to make a vegan mug cake. I find myself gravitating towards a lot of carbs, too. I think this is mostly because making pasta is quick and easy when I am so busy during the day taking care of Willow. But I’m not perfect. I’ve also been trying to make more salads and greens. Balance is a good thing, yeah? Anyways. You’re here for the food inspiration and ideas.

What I Eat As A Breastfeeding Vegan Mom

I can’t believe it’s been over a month with Willow. She’s an actual angel, in case you were wondering. Ha! We’re already finding a pretty good groove (for now, anyways!) I’ve been able to get in the kitchen more to bake and make dinner for Joe, at least. It’s been so nice being able to do that… makes me feel awesome and you know, well-fed. I’ve definitely been more hungry as a breastfeeding mama, but continue to lose the baby weight. I ended up gaining 33 lbs this pregnancy and have already lost 20+ of it. Happy to be feeling myself – happiness all around, really. There are definitely days where I feel off (and irritated) – especially when she’s fussy (like yesterday) but today seems to be off to a good start. A vegetable soup is on the stove and I have a butternut squash in the oven. Small victories.

But anyways, here’s what I’ve been eating lately.

And as always, follow along on Instagram for more plant-based food inspiration. That’s where you’ll find me these days as I continue to soak up all the newborn moments. xx

Plant-Based Life: What I’ve Been Eating Lately

Hi loves! I started compiling these meals at the tail-end of my pregnancy, but there are also some post-baby meals in here. I’m so fortunate to have amazing family and friends to bring over lots of meals while we got through the first week with a newborn. Thank God, right? Because I am STARVING. Breastfeeding is no joke. Lots of plant-based/vegan food inspiration below the cut!

And as always, follow along on Instagram for more plant-based food inspiration. I’ll be there much more often these days rather than on here while I find my groove as a mom. xx
