Sometimes people wonder what to eat when you eat a raw food diet and are breastfeeding. While you do need protein, iron, and more, you might be surprised to know that you can get it in more than adequate quantities on a diet of nuts, seeds, fruits, vegetables, seaweeds and other superfoods.

In my upcoming book, The Milky Way – The Ultimate Guide to Breastfeeding on the Raw Food Diet, I share over 50 delicious, breastfeeding friendly recipes, as well as many real-life high raw food journals detailing what I ate at various stages of my high raw breastfeeding journey. This is one of them! Many of the recipes are in the book, including green juices, chia puddings, burgers and pates, sauces, dressings, protein shakes, green smoothies, and more.

Chia SeedsRaw Chia pudding made from 2 T chia seeds, 3/4 cup Brazil nut milk, 1/2 t carob, 4 banana slices and 1 fig — shared with my son Franklin.

Half batch of raw smoothie made from 3 bananas, 5 oz frozen strawberries, 4 ounces blueberries — shared with Franklin.

Raw vegan tuna pate (recipe in the book) on a bed of greens with a squeeze of lemon and a drizzle of olive oil. Raw Kimchi from Vital Choice. — Franklin had some of the pate, and then the ice cream below.

BananasRaw soft serve ice-cream made from food processing 3 frozen bananas, and about a cup of frozen mango with a little agave — I gave half to my husband and shared mine with Franklin.

Raw Protein Shake made with 5 ounces strawberries, 3 bananas and 1 cup frozen mango and 2 scoop Sun Warrior Vanilla. — I gave half to my husband and shared mine with Franklin.

Sun-dried black mission figs and packaged raw kale chips — shared with Franklin.

Salad greens with garlicky balsamic vinaigrette and vegan pizza (on homemade sprouted crust). The sauce was Amy’s Organic Marinara, and I topped the pizza with zucchini, onion, olives, and tomatoes. I drizzled some raw, cultured garlic flowers on top. Mmmm!
