I am a new mom who is about to go back to work. My son is 10 months and I teach high school.
Up until this point in my life, cooking has been what grounded me. I love to cook. After a hard day, it is wonderful to cook a yummy healthy meal and share it with my family.
But now, it is my son that grounds me. I still love to cook, but if I try to cook the elaborate meals I used too, I am up until 11pm doing dishes.
So I am trying to think about how to change my life. Healthy food in not a compromise. As my son starts eating more "grown up" food, we cannot live on boxes of chemical flavored rice or noodles. I *think* I want to find foods I can freeze so that I can cook some fresh vegetables every day and eat from the freezer. But I am drawing a blank...the only foods I can really think of that freeze well are dahl and lasagna. I have made three kinds of asian pasta sauces (Thai pesto, sesame, and peanut) that I froze in ice cube trays. I can cook a pot of noodles or rice with veggies and trow the ice cubes in. Any other ideas to help me?
