Recipes / tips for healthy snacks / light meals for mum with hands full
(I've posted this here as well as the Food & Drink section in case there are any breast-feeding mum's that have any ideas.)
Does anyone have any suggestions as to healthy snacks or light meals I can prepare for my wife to have while I'm at work? Ideally I'd like to freeze them so they can be easily reheated in the microwave.
The reason I ask is, Mrs Pid is currently breast-feeding our lovely but permanently hungry 2 month-old baby boy and the problem is she rarely gets enough time to herself to actually make herself lunch. As a result she tends to end up snacking on unhealthy things like biscuits, cream crackers etc.
We're both veggies (although my wife will eat fish) & I had prepared a freezer-full of casseroles, stews etc that she could just pop in the microwave but it turns out that most of the ingredients gave our poor lad severe colic.
Any clever ABers have any ideas for things that are tasty, healthy, meat-free and easy to eat one-handed..?!
