Keeping up milk supply, as well as working on flattening the post-baby pooch is such a big challenge!! I talk a lot about both these postpartum issues on the blog, and today I have tiny tricks that are super simple, yet can help you lose the baby weight, as well as two recipes for lactation smoothies!

Let’s get into the 5 tricks:

Take Out Dairy:

This is a super simple step, though you may miss your cheese, but if dairy is causing any inflammation in your body, and you may not be aware of it, you may be holding onto weight. Also, dairy foods are for baby cows to grow big. Dairy spikes blood sugar more for some people than others. Try taking it out and swapping with nut-milk products like Silk  Almond Dairy – Free Yogurt Alternative and Silk Unsweetened Vanilla Almondmilk! Check out their social hub to learn more.

Walk 20 Minutes More:

Walking is so good for you, especially postpartum because it is low impact, and it keeps your body moving. Adding 10 minutes of walking in the morning, and 10 minutes in the evening can do wonders for your energy level, and it will burn a few more calories.

Eat an Apple Before Dinner:

Apples have a lot of water and fiber, so they will fill your stomach up before your meal. This will help you eat less in the evening because you will feel more full! If you don’t like apples, try oranges, watermelon or cucumbers to get a similar affect.

Jump Around:

This may sound weird, but add 5 minutes of jumping three times in your day. This is great cardio, and it will add up to 15 minutes of great calorie burning for the day. Do squat jumps, or touch the floor and jump super high. If you have little ones, get them involved. It will get your heart pumping!

Get Outside:

Cravings often come when we are in a funky mood, tired, or been sitting for a long time. Getting fresh air, a little vitamin D can help knock those out. Especially in the afternoon before dinner. If the weather isn’t good, dress the best you can and get out for a few minutes at a time. Mother nature does wonders for your mind!

One is Strawberry Peach and the other is Strawberries and Cream. So yummy, and perfect in time for summer.

I have something super special to keep these smoothies creamy, and dairy free. Silk Almondmilk yogurt. Such a great alternative to dairy yogurt, and as many of my readers know, plant-based proteins and milks are my absolute favorite!! Almonds are so good for you, tastes great, and it helps keep your stomach from getting pooching and bloated if you have just the slightest sensitivity to dairy. In my most recent  14-day eat clean challenge, I highly encourage challengers to give up dairy for two weeks. It is amazing how you may notice gas and bloating once you re-introduce, that you never even realized you had!

Silk Unsweetened Vanilla Almondmilk is literally in my fridge at all times. I use it for so much!! I was super excited when I went to Walmart, and they had the Silk Vanilla Almond Dairy – Free Yogurt Alternative and Silk Peach Almond Dairy – Free Yogurt Alternative because they are so perfect for these recipes!! I also have a fabulous Ibotta coupon for you all to use too, so you get your cash back on your purchase!

Let’s get into the recipes for these lactation smoothies that are super healthy. Being healthy doesn’t have to be hard at all, especially with wonderful products like the Silk Almondmilk line!

Strawberries and Cream:

This will actually be the top layer of the next smoothie. Here are the super simple ingredients:

1/2 cup frozen strawberries
1/2 carton Silk Strawberry Almond Dairy – Free Yogurt Alternative
1/2 carton Silk Vanilla Almond Dairy – Free Yogurt Alternative

1 cup Silk Unsweetened Vanilla Almondmilk
1 tsp flaxseeds
1 Tbsp oats

Blend at high speed, pour in a cup to drink, with some dairy-free whipped cream and strawberries on top!! If you want to use it for the layered smoothie, put in freezer for about 10 minutes, and move to the next recipe!

Peaches and Cream:

Here are the ingredients and instructions for the peaches and cream layer:

1 cup frozen peaches
1/2 carton Silk Peach Almond Dairy – Free Yogurt Alternative
1/2 carton Silk Vanilla Almond Dairy – Free Yogurt Alternative

1 cup Silk Unsweetened Vanilla Almondmilk
1 tsp flaxseeds
1 Tbsp oats

Blend in a good blender, and pour into your cup. This can be the bottom layer, so put in the freezer for about 15-20 minutes. Just enough to create a solid top. When you put this layer in the freezer, pull out the strawberry layer. Pour on top when the peach layer has a stable top.

When you add the two layers together, you have a Strawberries, Peaches and Cream lactation smoothie that is completely dairy-free, yet super creamy and yummy! The added oats and flaxseed help with milk production, AND the probiotics in the yogurt help keep your gut healthy and happy, which also means a flatter tummy!

 

I have a very specialized program for postpartum mamas looking to heal, nourish and regain their strength. I really struggled healing after my first child, and even went through pelvic floor physical therapy for weeks to manage scar tissue that developed from tearing. I have experience studying nutrition, physical therapy and I taught Pilates, so I’ve put together a program I wish I would’ve followed from the beginning.

A program that first heals your body through specialized movements and nourishing foods. Foods are so essential to your body finding the nutrients it needs to put itself back together again. Your postpartum body needs special care in the first 4-6 weeks where you focus on regaining strength and properly fueling your body for breastfeeding.

This program then moves you into gaining physical fitness back. I will never forget the first time I tried to go for a run around 12 weeks postpartum after my first baby. I didn’t do any strength work, so I was literally jelly. I had lost all my extra fat and my previous muscle. So depressing. I was barely able to start gaining it back before I got pregnant and sick again with my second. I’ve learned so much on maintaining muscle postpartum through a unique diet and Pilates routines. I walk you through all of this too!

Lastly, I take you into a workout program to combine with a meal plan to help you lose the baby weight, not your milk!! !

Enroll in the course before the price goes up after July 4th!

I created this program to be affordable and realistic for new mams!

    Workout (you can do that in your house too). Eat healthy, in time (intervals) and right amount of food (you must create healthy caloric deficit). Drink Mummy magic weight loss tea 3xday. Stay motivated and be happy with your results.
