Three Smoothies to Try this Week
I am falling in love with summertime smoothies alllll over again this year, and I’ve got three new recipes I know you’ll want!
This first recipe is especially great for new mamas who are nursing. I abruptly hit a milk low last week, so I was constantly stuffing my face with every food (and herbal drop!) you can possibly imagine known to increase my milk. It worked!! The recipe below is packed full of super foods that are known to boost a mama’s milk supply!
I am generally following my nutritionist’s guidelines for eating post-baby. My girl, Kelly LeVeque knows her stuff, and I’ll share more on my health and fitness routine post-baby in an upcoming post. PS. Kelly has a BOOK! Buy it HERE…
