gluten-free Meals For Postpartum

Recommended Posts

So I am due on the 17th, and getting pretty excited about baby. A few weeks ago it occured to me that it would be smart to start freezing back some gluten-free meals for the first few months so I have been going crazy cooking on the weekends. This past Saturday I got up at 6:00 am and cooked the entire day, I think I have about 2 months worth of food made so far.

For all the other expectant moms, I highly recommend the book Don't Panic, Dinner's in the Freezer. I bought it on Amazon for $10. If you have no other food allergies, most of the recipes are easily adaptable though I have stayed away from the baked good section. There are about 30 chicken recipes alone. Of course, I haven't eaten any of them yet so who knows but everything was super easy to make. Most of the meals you just prepare and freeze, and then bake when you are ready to eat it so you don't even have to mess with heating up the house. And the book gives different quantites so it is easy to make huge amounts if you have a large family. I found it to be extremely economical compared to buying pre-made gluten-free frozen meals.

I even borrowed my mom's food saver and vacuum packaged everything- which is so much fun!! I also have made mexican casseroles, stuffed shells, lasagna, 5 different kinds of soups- I will be eating better the next few months than I ever have in my life! :) Thank goodness for these last minute bursts of energy.
