I’m 4 months postpartum and it’s my turn to host a baby play-date. What do I make?
Healing Postpartum Muffins of course!
This is the first time I’m hosting because I was so overwhelmed and exhausted from going through newborn days again. I’ve been waiting for life to settle, the baby to sleep more, and to catch my stride. Even though I’m feeling better, I definitely have a list of postpartum symptoms I want to reduce.
Knowing my mommy friends are likely feeling much like me, why not make nourishing muffins that taste great, but also replenish and heal. This recipe is a modification from our Blood Building Muffins in our updated recipe booklet that’ll be launched later this year.
This is a blood builder recipe with a couple of ingredients to nourish yin (think adrenals and congenital essence). Did you know that breast milk is a blood product in Western medicine and also in Chinese medicine? This is why if you boost your blood, you also boost your breast milk supply.
These muffins help:
Calm down Frazzles Anxious Nerves
Diminish Eye Floaters
Reduce Night Sweats
The base muffin recipe is from our Blood Deficiency Diet, while the raspberries, dark organic chocolate, and walnuts are from the Yin Diet.
Once you learn the principles of healing with food based on Chinese Medicine with our food charts, you can eat your way back to health.
