There are some amazing lactation snack recipes and creations, but not all of them are healthy and promote losing the baby weight. Seriously, some of them are basically super rich and gooey bars and cookies, with a dash of flaxseed and brewers yeast. Now, there’s nothing wrong with a nice, milk boosting treat, but for a daily snack, these might not be the best choice if you want to lose some of the baby weight. So, I’ve rounded up the healthiest lactation snack ideas out there, so you can have your snack, and make your milk too!

Remember, the most important decision you can make postpartum is to infuse your body with nutrient-dense foods. I go over all of this in my program, which not only teaches you how to nourish your body for breastfeeding, but we also go over supplements to keep your supply up, how to strengthen your pelvic floor and core, as well as the best workouts to lose weight and protect your core. I have 60 healthy and healing recipes, a meal plan and grocery shopping list to make it easier. The program is also set up in a course system, as well as a download, so you can access it in any way that works best for you. There are videos that explain everything including counting calories while breastfeeding, how to use protein for weight loss, the most healing foods to help your body recovery and so much more! The price will be going up as I add more content, so I recommend that you take a look at it now! Here is what one mama emailed me after starting the program:

I absolutely love the program! Just got finished with workout 4 and I’m dying😂 I can only do these 2x thru and my second round is pretty funny to see I’m sure😉! I will work up to 3x:-) By the way, your little boy angel in the videos is too precious and makes me smile! My boys have been doing these with me as well🙌🏼!

The information and the eating plan are both fantastic. I was so happy to hear that great waynof calorie counting when nursing! I have gotten my 3 day average and now I’m going to reduce by 100 calories today! Thanks so much!!
I haven’t had a chance to recommend to postpartum moms yet but I will soon!! 😘

I have a very specialized program for postpartum mamas looking to lose weight, keep up their milk supply and heal their bodies. 

So many mamas are having such success with the program, and let me share what they’ve said:

“I’m on the 14 day clean eating part and already feel a change.  I love that your program caters to nursing moms. These recipes are boosting my milk supply! Thanks again and can’t wait to use the new app!”

“As far as counting calories, yes that was so helpful!… it was an eye opener…But your concept of reducing ever so slightly and monitoring milk supply was so helpful! I have lost 6lbs-yay!- and have 12 more to go!  I am encouraged for sure because it is usually not until  I’m done nursing that I’m able to lose weight. So I’m all in for hopefully the rest of my life-on clean eating like this and exercise! Thanks so much for your help!!”

“Feeling GREAT on this program!!! It’s unbelievable how eating clean makes such a difference. Let me rephrase that…it’s amazing the difference eating nutrient dense foods makes! My skin is glowing and I’m already shedding pounds! I also tried the first workout today and did well although I had to modify a bit and omit the backwards burpee (I had cesarean just over a month ago and don’t quite feel ready for that exercise just yet but I will get there). Loving this plan! Thank you SO MUCH for tour help!”

“The few changes I’ve made to diet per your instructions is already helping lower my sweet cravings. I’m sure I’ll notice an even bigger difference when I get stricter. This week has been great as I feel better, have already lost 2#, and haven’t seen a drop in milk supply which was my biggest concern. I look forward to starting the workouts tonight!”

“The baby steps have been super helpful including writing down everything I ate…Another 5 days would be amazing, I was thinking yesterday what am I going to do after the 5 days are finished. You have been incredibly helpful!! I am so appreciative!!!”

My program focuses on specialized nutrition for breastfeeding moms, recipes, meal plans, grocery lists, a new Ab Rehab + Pelvic Floor Restore program, and a new section on going back to work after baby coming soon!

There are now two prices! One with the app, one without for two options! grab it now, while it is super affordable!
