Miracle Postpartum Tabbouleh Salad for Weight loss

This is the salad. The great Bambino (Sandlot anyone?!) of all salads for weight loss and milk supply. Like all postpartum mamas, two major issues on my mind are getting rid of the baby weight and keeping up a healthy supply. Now, parsley is a big player in this salad, and it’s been said it can lower your milk supply in large amounts. I have not experienced it, and Parsley is one of the healthiest foods you can eat, which is why I call this a miracle salad. Plus, this salad has way more Bulgur in it, which is a grain full of fiber and minerals that promote a healthy milk supply. Either way, I have a substitute for you in the recipe if you are concerned and don’t want to risk it! I have also have a gluten-free substitute for the Bulgur as well! I go over the specific health…

I’m not sure about you, but I live off of coffee. My coffee cup is basically attached to my hand like an IV. Let’s face it, us Millennial moms do everything. Probably too much of everything.

Especially after a long night of researching various parenting methods focused on love, understanding and empathy…time outs just don’t cut it anymore do they??

3 Mind Tricks to Lose The Baby Weight For Good

I believe that losing the baby weight offers such a significant struggle because our minds and bodies are totally transformed outside of our control during pregnancy. If we could control what happens, things would be a lot different. Our bodies just start ballooning with all this excess water weight, we get exhausted, yet can’t sleep, our feet double in size (why?!!), and all sorts of other shockers. Pregnancy is a grueling experience, terminated with a painfully frightening labor and delivery trauma. Labor and delivery is traumatic for me. I don’t like pain. I don’t like things just happening that I can’t control. Blood, bodily fluids and yelling like an animal in a public place just don’t sit well with me. These experiences take a toll on our mind. Our bodies are a product of our mind. This post contains affiliate links.  Did you catch that? Your body is a product…
