Description

A beautiful full-color cookbook addressing a hot topic for new moms, with creative meals, snacks, and drinks created to support breast milk supply and overall health

For breastfeeding moms, "eating for two" continues long after the baby arrives. But eating well can be hard enough before there's a newborn in the house, and moms who experience low milk supply or milk slumps face additional challenges. In their debut cookbook, the founders of Oat Mama share 80 simple, delicious recipes for breakfasts, lunches, dinners, desserts, snacks, and beverages, featuring nutrient-dense whole foods and naturally lactogenic (milk-boosting) ingredients such as oats, almonds, barley, fenugreek, and papaya. Alongside the recipes, readers will find helpful breastfeeding tips and advice on easy meal prep, building a healthy pantry, and sourcing ingredients. Fully illustrated with more than 75 beautiful photographs, this is a warm, supportive, and inspiring resource for new mothers and mothers-to-be.
