It’s about that time that I start getting back into newborn momma mode! I can’t believe it has almost been two years already since I was in it last. After just moving into our new house, we have been crazy busy getting everything ready for the baby and in general. On top of all of that, I’m trying my best to make some storable and freezable snacks and meals to make our life a little easier. It will definitely be a big transition from one child to two! When nursing Presley, I was constantly coming up with and trying different lactation recipes. The one below is one that I used many times and decided to add a new twist. I had to be very strict and not consume any dairy with P. I am very confident that this will also be the case for Andi, but either way, it’s the best for me as I am dairy intolerant too. I chose to add Unreal dark chocolate crispy quinoa gems (just like m&ms) and was so surprised at how good they were! I can’t wait to just pop these bites right out of the fridge or freezer when life will be so chaotic! Remember, these are a great healthy snack post or pre-workout or anytime for anyone!
