At The Culinistas, it is our mission to make sure every mom is being looked after and getting the nutritional support she needs, whether that be promoting milk production or reclaiming your body after sharing it for so many months. We’ve curated menus that will fortify you, so caring for your baby doesn’t conflict with caring for yourself.
If you are breastfeeding, our postnatal menus are packed with lean proteins and iron to stimulate baby brain development, as well as vitamins and antioxidants that will keep your immune system strong and your hormones balanced. We include healthy, whole grain carbs that will counterbalance the calories you are expending as you feed your baby, as well as foods rich with tryptophan so that when you do have those precious moments of relaxation, you’ll be able to rest easily.
For those working on self care and reclamation, our menus focus on light proteins, nutrient rich leafy greens, healthy snacks, and fruit salads to satiate a sweet tooth.
Our pudding gets its creamy texture from puréed, folate rich avocado, which produces and maintains new cells. The fats in avocado help lower the risk of heart disease, improve cholesterol levels, and contain several anti-inflammatory benefits for the body, particularly for the cardiovascular system. Our pudding is made with agave nectar, an alternative to processed sugar that is great for keeping blood sugar levels low. A hit of cocoa powder reduces inflammation and improves blood sugar levels, cholesterol, and blood flow.
