Food: Big spread of chinese food everyday!

Posted Sep 26 2012 12:00am

Now that we’re 5 at home, each meals seems a big meal with at least 4-5 dishes. That’s the tradition in chinese family, usually at least 1 dish per people. I don’t eat all of them, so I ask my mom to have at least two dishes that I like! :) Being pregnant has many privileges! ;)

For a couple of days I had sweet oatmeal for breakfast, an old friend that I haven’t visited for a long time!

this one has 1/2 cup oatmeal, 1/2 cup almond milk, 1/2 cup water, pinch of salt, 1/2 medium banana, 1 tsp chia seed, vanilla, topped with peach and big spoon of almond butter.

Stay tune to postpartum food! In chinese tradition, women are really weak after delivering a baby, so special care is needed. In addition to needing a lot of rest and not moving around so much for the first 4-6 weeks, nutrition plays an important role. There’s special recipes for that. I plan to try some! :)
