Oh man. I am mid-voracious appetite, just like I remember from last time. I have never been so hungry in all my life. Not only am I having second breakfast, but I'm having two lunches, two dinners and god knows what else in between.
Last time I didn't know what was coming. Last time I was so hungry but so busy and I'd end up eating nothing but toast all day because it was quick. Sometimes some cereal. Nothing substantial. I lost soooooo much weight and felt weak and tired all the time.
This time I was proactive. At the start of each week I make a batch of quinoa or brown rice and make salads ready to go for lunch time. I make sure I eat a ton of breakfast in case I can't get to food before lunch. Hell, before 3pm! I make sure there's snacks aplenty and I watch my protein to make sure I'm fueled up enough to not only feed a new human, but make sure I can get through the day with two very little kids.
So I thought I'd share what I've been eating in case it helps another new and starving mum. I know the feeling and HANGRY aint pretty!
