I’ve started a bad habit that’s going to take some work to kick: dessert for dinner.
Or more accurately, dessert that spoils my appetite for dinner. I don’t actually get around to having a square breakfast or lunch (often snacking on sweets then, too) and come 3 or 4 in the afternoon, I reach for dessert–ice cream, preferably. I did such a great job eating healthy meals while I was pregnant, but now I need to be sure my breastmilk contains more than calcium from a diet high in Haagen Daaz.
I’m thinking I need to start making some vegetable enchiladas on Sundays that I can heat up for a quick lunch during the week (these maybe? one could add edamame for more protein), and keep more single-serving yogurts in the fridge. Maybe I need to keep the blender handier for smoothies? Place a platter of sliced fruit out each morning? Going on the to-do list…
Any other suggestions (or favorite recipe, enchilada or otherwise)? I’d love some inspiration!
(P.S. Thank you for all of the birthday wishes!)
