BUSY MOM MEAL: ONE DISH CHICKEN BURRITO BOWL

Being a first-time mom, I have had to master making the simplest, quickest, yet somewhat healthy meals. This one-dish chicken burrito bowl passes the test. You literally just need to dump all the ingredients in one dish (you can even season the chicken in the dish too!) and bake. This is also a dairy and soy free recipe so if you have cut out those problem foods, this is a perfect recipe for you. This dish serves 2. Let's get started:

You will need:
1 1/2 lbs. boneless skinless chicken
1 c uncooked rice
1/2 c salsa
1/2 c water
1/2 can corn
1/2 can black beans

Add uncooked rice to baking pan, then add salsa and water. Let soak for 10 minutes.
Cube chicken into 1/2 to 1 inch sized pieces. Add to baking pan and season.
Drain and add corn and black beans.
Bake at 400 degrees for 1 hour.


That's it. A very quick and easy dish that is also so perfect for meal preps!

POSTPARTUM MUST HAVES

Hello everyone! Here are some of the products that have been helping me through my postpartum journey. Now, the hospital should send you home with these so make sure you are stocked up before you leave. If not, here are some items that I definitely recommend.


This post contains affiliate links. I may be compensated for sales generated through these links.
  1. A Peri Bottle - It was a rude awakening to me that I would not be able to wipe properly after giving birth. The peri bottle is a total lifesaver. It helps to clean the lady bits all while being gentle to the sore vaginal area. This is also such a great item to have if you do not have a detachable shower head. Be sure to use warm water ;)
  2. Maternity Pads - Your regular pre-pregnancy pads will not cut it. These pads will absorb the heavy lochia bleeding. And in case you didn't know, you cannot use tampons, menstrual cups, or anything of the sort for the 6-8 weeks following birth.
  3. Pain Relieving Spray - A spray is a great way to relieve the soreness from birth or from tears. Who knew it would feel like you got hit by a bat in your lady parts post delivery? It provides a nice, cooling sensation that helps keep the pain at bay. 
  4. Postpartum Underwear - This is probably my most favorite item on the list. This underwear is so stretchy and comfortable! Also, don't throw these away! They are completely machine washable. I made that mistake and missed out on having a stash of 2 additional packs. These make good underwear for just wearing around the house as well once the postpartum period is over. 
Let me know in the comments what are your postpartum must haves. Also, please visit my Amazon storefront to conveniently find these items on one page: Amazon StoreFront - Postpartum Must Haves!
