My friend Erinn from Embracing Everything asked for a list of the freezer meals that I used after this pregnancy, so I thought it might be helpful to a few other people as well. Why kill two birds with one stone when there are eggs in your bush that you shouldn't count? I started too late preparing for Eli Benjamin.

I've been working on this post for a few months. I like variety, and I got it into my head that I could make up 50 smoothie combos that were fast and easy...because, ain't nobody got time for smoothies that take a bunch of prep work - isn't that the point of  a smoothie?
