Theral Natal Lactation Complete

While doing research for my book, I came across the Theralogix website.  The Lactation Complete formula has the required dose of vitamin D and omega 3's you need, all-in-one, plus everything else a postnatal supplement should contain.  I like that this company has a medical advisory board approving every formulation after a thorough review of the current scientific literature.  This company has formulations for women in all stages of life, so browse around and see what best suits your needs!

Vitamix

I bought my Vitamix when I was pregnant with my son with the intention of using it to make baby food.  That was 16 years ago.  I still have the same Vitamix and I’ve made so much more than just baby food in it!  Of course, smoothies are a no brainer, but I’ve also made nut butters, soups, spreads, dressings, chopped onions (my eyes are super sensitive to onions), you name it!  I even started milling my own fresh flour in my Vitamix before I invested in a mill.  This is an appliance that you will use for so many things for a lifetime - it’s one of my “can’t do without” appliances.  It’s well worth the initial investment!

 

Coffee
If you read my blog about caffeine, you know that I advocate minimizing your caffeine intake. If you drink decaf, it should be from companies using the Swiss Water Process.

Cafix

If you want to just stay away from coffee altogether, but love the taste, you can try chicory root-based beverages (NOT if you are pregnant or lactating).  They don't EXACTLY taste like coffee, you don't get the bitterness (which I actually love), but you do get the flavor and feeling like you are drinking coffee.  I tried a lot of different brands and I actually like Cafix the best.
