How to Eat Well as a New Mom
Can we tell you a quick story about fruit in your first 42 days postpartum?⠀
It should ALL be cooked. Stewed. Steamed. Soupy-goodness.⠀
Your body has two options: 1. heal from childbirth or 2. digest your food & receive all the nutrients you need for your best postpartum (& breastfeeding experience if you are nursing)!⠀
We LOVE stewed apples as a go-to breakfast staple. Add cinnamon, nutmeg, or cardamom for an extra digestive kick. And ghee if you’ve had a vaginal birth!⠀
Need more tips? We are here with and for you.
