Keeping both you and your baby healthy while breastfeeding requires a proper meal plan and some guidance. If you would like a step-by-step program to help you lose weight safely, check out all our courses, programs, challenges, & recipe book.

There are some amazing lactation snack recipes and creations, but not all are healthy and promote losing the baby’s weight. Some are super rich and gooey bars and cookies with a dash of flaxseed and brewers yeast. There’s nothing wrong with a nice, milk-boosting treat, but these might not be the best choice for a daily snack if you want to lose some of the baby’s 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 a grocery shopping list to make it easier. The program is also set up in a course system and a download, so you can access it in any way that works best for you. Some videos explain everything, including counting calories while breastfeeding, using protein for weight loss, the most healing foods to help your body recover, and so much more! The price will go up as I add more content, so I recommend 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 want to lose weight!

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 DustMilk Dust is 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 superfoods 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.
