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!
Milk Dust Lactation Bars – OMG GOOD!
These are seriously delicious, and so good for breastfeeding mamas. I am in love with them, and they have all the milk-boosting properties of my Milk Dust protein powder, but in a bar form. Full of protein and nutrients, low on sugar and calories. Great post-workout snacks for new mommies who are breastfeeding and wanting to lose weight!
The Perfect Green Lactation Protein Shake:
There you have a full list of healthy snacks. These will help you keep up your milk supply, without consuming a ton of sugar, fat and unhealthy calories!
In my years of helping mamas lose weight while breastfeeding, there was a protein powder missing that was specifically designed for breastfeeding mamas to combat these sugar cravings and fully nourish mamas. I am a firm believer in nutrition for milk supply, so I created Milk Dust. Milk Dust is literally your best friend for lactation and weight loss. It has a milk-boosting herb blend, plenty of protein, sugar-craving-busting herbs like Tumeric, Cinnamon Bark Root and minerals like Chromium which have all been used to balance blood sugar. In addition to all these fabulous items. I hand-picked specific vitamins like Folate (L-Methylfolate) because folate is still important during lactation! Almost just as important as in pregnancy. I also hand-picked vitamin B12 for energy, and super foods like Chlorella, Spirulina, Spinach, Blueberries and more. The protein powder is free of soy, gluten, dairy and corn. It is NON-GMO, Vegan and plant-based!! I highly recommend you check it out if you are craving sugar. It is only sweetened with Stevia, Monk Fruit and Organic Cane Juice, which means there is very little sugar, but it is very sweet, so you still get to drink something like a milkshake! THE PRESALE IS LIVE AND IT SELLS OUT FAST!
There is no other clean, super nutrient-dense protein powders that are specifically made for postpartum healing, nourishment, lactation and weight loss. There are thousands of mamas waiting for this to launch, and I am so excited to finally have a product that helps mamas nourish themselves while also losing weight.
If you need help losing the baby weight and keeping up your milk supply, I have a very popular program, The Postpartum Cure, which provides you with your diet and nutrition plan to lose weight, not milk supply!
