Re: easy lunch ideas for nursing moms?

Just went through this Momma. DS2 is almost 11 weeks and DS1 is 3.5 years. Prior to delivering, I froze 30+ pre-cooked lunches/dinners, and a ton of pre-cooked English Muffin pizzas with different toppings for lunch. We also kept the fridge stocked with healthy grab and eat items - fresh veggies for dipping, homemade hummus, fruit, boiled eggs, pre-cooked bacon, tuna/salmon salad, cheese, yogurt, cottage cheese, etc. In the pantry we had plenty of granola, nuts, dried fruit, peanut butter, soup, dry cereals. For breakfast, I pre-cooked steel cut oats in my crockpot and froze in muffin tins, popped them out and stored in ziploc bags in the freezer to be microwaved - oats are great for milk production, BTW! We also did a lot of smoothies for lunch and breakfast... I keep the freezer stashed with frozen berries, peaches, overripe bananas. HTH!
