Smoothies Are Easy Nutrient Dense Foods For This New Mom
Posted Jul 03 2010 8:44pm
One of the things that I haven't been able to pay much attention to is making meals right now. And, as a breastfeeding mama, I need those extra calories. So, I'm keeping things on hand for easy eating and snacking like protein bars, avocados, nut butters, fresh veggies that are cut and ready to dip into hummus, and I'm a superfood smoothie making mama! My smoothies these past couple of days have been loaded with things like: fresh (or frozen) berries, frozen banana, nut milk, probiotics, brown rice powder, hemp powder, hemp seeds, flax meal, chia meal, goji berries, greens, prunes, etc. They vary each time but they're definitely filled with calories and nutrients! My goal is keeping my protein around 55-65 grams so the protein powders are helping in that department. Sooo.... Yay for smoothies! Here is a recent post I wrote 3 Problems Smoothies Solve!
