How to eat when you are a single mom of a newborn.


Hard-boil a dozen eggs to eat throughout the week.

Make a big batch of a simple trail-mix: start with one nut and one dried fruit and go from there…add what you like!

Instant oatmeal with a handful of trail-mix and/or a swirl of jam.

Make a big pasta salad to eat cold: Shell pasta, olives, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, feta cheese, italian dressing.

Make a big lentil salad to eat cold.

Get a crock-pot and make a stew. This is a good one if you eat meat. Vegetarian? My favorite soup is onion, garlic, kale, potato, tomato, carrot, red pepper, cube of veggie bullion – just add the kale at the very end.

Stock up on baby carrots, apples and tangerines. Raspberries, blueberries, figs. Good quick snacks to go along with hard-boiled eggs.

Make a plate of apples and cheddar. Too overwhelmed to slice it up? Just grab a whole apple and a chunk of cheese.

Slice up a big batch of red bell peppers and cucumbers to dip in hummus.

Toast all day. I mean the bread kind. But go for it with the champagne too if need be!

Take a bag of pre-washed arugula. Top it with a drained can of tuna, some capers, balsamic vinegar and olive oil.

Stock up on Lara bars (or your favorite bar). Make it even easier on yourself and order this variety pack on Amazon.

If you are up for it you can make a big frittata and eat slices of it over a few days.

Water, water, water.

Breathe. Repeat.
