Breakfast: French Bean & Spinach Sausages with Poached Eggs
Sausage and eggs are my favourite breakfast on the weekend but sometimes if Lily is asleep I might be able to have it in the week but it’s harder if Lily gets hungry so I wouldn’t risk it normally. It’s a very protein filled breakfast but with this sausages you get some vegetables hidden in there and they taste amazing. I love veggie sausages anyway. It keeps you full and ready for the day.
As a new mum I’m finding it really hard to eat properly in the day and it be healthy, it’s so easy to just grab crisps or something snacks. I’ve recently tried this ready meal, normally they are unhealthy but this one if 3 of your 5 a day which is really good to get the nutrients in your body. Its really important to look after yourself as well as your newborn. Even in general it’s important to look after yourself and your body. I’ve never had cauliflower rice before but I was pleasantly surprised, it was really quite nice and with the curry it gave it a really nice kick to the flavour.
Dinner: Mushroom & Spinach Kievs with Salad
It’s easier to cook meals in the evening when Scott is home as I can take time to really focus on it. I love cooking and being in the kitchen. A quick meal for when I want to get other stuff done is this Mushroom and Spinach Kiev’s with creamy cheese filling with a side salad. I do like kievs but the garlic butter normally deters me as I don’t like a greasy buttery filling, these however have a creamy rich filling which is much more suited to me. These were by far my favourite products of the Goodlife range. Amazing rich cheese flavour with a crispy outside, goes perfect with a side salad maybe even some fries if you feeling cheeky.
Goodlife are stocked in sainsbury’s and a perfect way to get children to eat more vegetables without losing good taste. They also have Falafels with Cumin and Coriander. I’ve tried these as well and they are extremely tasty as well. I had these in a pita with some bell peppers and salad. It’s a perfect lunch and you can take it on the go as well.
Snacks: Throughout the day I had a banana and chocolate fingers. Also about 3 cups of coffee!
