You’ve readied the nursery. You’ve folded the clothes. You’ve done the bucket list of things that only the pre-baby you can do. Now’s the time to get cooking (more than just your baby, that is). Why? Because if there’s one thing you won’t have when your baby comes, it’s the time to cook three healthy meals a day. What’s a preggo mama to do? Try making and freezing one (or 10!) of these easy make-ahead meals.

Healthy Peanut Butter Chunk Oatmeal Bars

Who could forget the best meal of all: Dessert! Don't feel guilty about biting into these chocolate peanut butter bars. This recipe is chock full of healthy ingredients such as whole wheat flour (grains!), peanut butter (protein!), oats (fiber!), and vegan chocolate chips (antioxidants!). To freeze, cut them into squares and store individually in the freezer. Get the recipe from Sally's Baking Addiction.
