Smoothies are a great tool for boosting milk supply, as well as giving your body the nutrients it needs to heal and repair after baby. There is so much happening during the 4th trimester, and your body will be so happy you’ve given it all the nutrients it needs!

As a new mommy, the…

Eating smart is so important for breastfeeding and postpartum weight loss. It can literally make or break your milk supply. Our bodies are designed to thrive off of nutrients from the foods we eat. When we deprive our bodies of essential nutrients, and lots of them, we are taking away the building blocks for breast milk, repairing cells after birth and ultimately having the nutrients we need to signal to our body it is okay to let go of fat.

Losing weight while breastfeeding definitely requires a proper meal plan. Without a meal plan in place, it can be very difficult to stick to your healthy breastfeeding diet.

What does a good breastfeeding diet for weight loss include? You definitely want to create your meal plan around some very healthy, nutrient-dense foods that will support your body and milk supply. Fruits, vegetables and lean proteins are the best sources of nutrients, as well as nuts and avocados for healthy fats.

The Keto diet is really popular right now, and many mamas have had a lot of success with it, until they start breastfeeding. Doing the Keto diet while breastfeeding is safe and possible if you follow it correctly. With changes in hormones and nutritional needs while breastfeeding, there are some modifications you need to make to your Keto diet, to ensure you can keep up your milk supply and lose weight.

As a runner, I burn more carbs, so…

Postpartum nutrition is really important. And when I say really, I mean it is something that can make or break your healing, energy levels, milk supply and more. I am super passionate about postpartum nutrition because it is the key to keeping both mama and baby healthy after birth.

The medical community is taking notice, and I am so excited to now be working with doctors and OBGYNS to help provide more resources and care after birth. I personally was handed a sheet of simple exercises to do for healing, and offered whatever I wanted to eat from the hospital menu…that was my experience with postpartum care and healing. If you want even more nutrient advice for postpartum healing and…
