We went to bed around 11 last night, and I slept straight through until Lila woke up at 6:00 for a feeding (she also woke at 4:30, but Ryan took that one). It’s amazing how getting a longer stretch of sleep can affect you—I feel great this morning! Lila and Ryan are both still sleeping…which is the perfect opportunity for me to get a little blogging done. I’m hoping this is the first night of many that she sleeps for a longer stretch.
Last night, we had another first: I cooked. As in, didn’t eat something from the freezer. As in, used fresh produce. Crazy, right?
I put together this easy stir fry with kale, carrots, peas, asparagus, and tofu:
Not too shabby. As nice as it’s been having meals ready-to-go from the freezer, I think we’re both excited to start eating some fresh dinners too…especially now that we’re trying to eat a little healthier.
It’s funny—my tastes have completely changed after the pregnancy. It’s like the minute she popped out, all of the things I’d been craving—orange juice, red meat, no veggies—just disappeared.
Now, I find my taste heading back in the direction of its pre-pregnancy state. Meat doesn’t sound nearly as tasty, and a big plate of veggies finally sounds good again (I was eating vegetables while pregnant, but they never really *appealed* to me like they usually do). I don’t think we’ll ever go back to being full-on vegetarian, but we definitely tend to lean more towards meat-free meals in general.
It’s nice to feel my tastes returning to normal—I was happy to indulge in what my body was craving during pregnancy, but it felt kind of strange to be eating so much meat!
Have a great Tuesday! I’m turning grades in this morning, and then school is on my DUNZO list until August. Woot.
