The Five Minute Plate
The Five Minute Plate is back! Well, it's gone now. I mean, I ate it. And it was delicious.
This seven-ingredient meal included baby bok choy sauteed in olive oil with a squeeze of lemon juice, fresh strawberries, carrot sticks, and an egg fried in a bit of butter. I've mentioned before that I enjoy unprocessed fats without guilt, including saturated fats like butter and coconut oil.
Unrefined fats are especially important while breastfeeding because all mom's dietary fats go straight into her milk. Trans-fatty breast milk = horror show! Run, babies! Coconut oil, on the other hand, boosts the lauric acid content of the milk which translates to maximum infection-fighting properties for baby.
Breastfeeding has been challenging, but today Darwin and I celebrate two months together growing and learning. I absolutely love giving him this unparalleled super-food. How could I not want the best for these chins?
Have a beautiful day, foodies!
