Post-baby prep

So, the days are finally winding have already prepared your nursery, have packed a bag for the big day and gave the house one last good, what's left to do before the baby arrives, stock your house! Make a trip to the grocery store and grab some delicious, nutritious and freezable items so that when baby arrives, you have one less thing to worry about! The meals don't need to be only casseroles or pizza, items like the crock-pot and a blender can help you out a ton.

Here are some best bets for stocking your fridge and pantry so you won't have to venture out too often.

*For breakfast: frozen waffles and frozen fruit are both wonderful things to have in the house. Frozen fruit can be a topper or can be made into a yummy smoothie. Also great to have on hand? Cereal and snacks like granola bars because you will be hungry from all the hard work you will be doing.

*Meatloaf and meatballs can be made in advance and frozen (uncooked). Meat can be pre-cooked and seasoned, then stored in the freezer until you are ready to use it. From there, you can cook meat for stir fries or taco night!

* Look for easy and delicious pre-made items. Annie Chun's has awesome sticky rice that can be microwaved in a minute and tastes like it came from a restaurant. Other great options? Trader Joe's pre-made meals. From Indian food, to mexican, chinese,mediterranean and italian, you will not grow tired of their delicious option.

* Chop of some veggies, spices and meats then store in the freezer until you decide what you are craving. With these ingredients you can pop them into a crock-pot or you can create a chili or a soup with them at a later date.

* Grab boxes of pastas and sauces. The carbs will give you added energy to last throughout the day-especially helpful if you have not been sleeping too much.

Keep your favorite delivery restaurants on hand for those nights that you don't feel like doing anything!

Have a great day!
