Your nutrition postpartum should reflect your habits from pregnancy. Your calorie intake may even rise if you are breastfeeding, so take care to eat when you are hungry and carry snacks and a water bottle with you, especially in these first months.
Some of you may hail from a culturally rich family that has specific foods to eat during the postpartum time. Many traditional cultures and tribal cultures eat warm, healing foods such as soups made with bone broth, teas, and plenty of easy to digest vegetables and meats. However, in our culture many of us are left to fend for ourselves. If you don't know what to eat postpartum to help your body heal, you can follow the easy guidelines below. Who know, maybe it will become a habit to eat healing, whole foods and your whole life will change as a result!
