What I Eat As A Breastfeeding Vegan Mom

I can’t believe it’s been over a month with Willow. She’s an actual angel, in case you were wondering. Ha! We’re already finding a pretty good groove (for now, anyways!) I’ve been able to get in the kitchen more to bake and make dinner for Joe, at least. It’s been so nice being able to do that… makes me feel awesome and you know, well-fed. I’ve definitely been more hungry as a breastfeeding mama, but continue to lose the baby weight. I ended up gaining 33 lbs this pregnancy and have already lost 20+ of it. Happy to be feeling myself – happiness all around, really. There are definitely days where I feel off (and irritated) – especially when she’s fussy (like yesterday) but today seems to be off to a good start. A vegetable soup is on the stove and I have a butternut squash in the oven. Small victories.

But anyways, here’s what I’ve been eating lately.

And as always, follow along on Instagram for more plant-based food inspiration. That’s where you’ll find me these days as I continue to soak up all the newborn moments. xx

  1. Wow, lady..down 20lbs already!! As usual everything looks so delicious! I’d love your Chocolate pumpkin overnight oats recipe :)

    • Thank you, Tracey!! If you go into the archives by searching “chocolate overnight oats” you’ll find my recipe – for pumpkin, I just added about 1/4 cup pumpkin puree to that recipe and a bit more almond milk for consistency. It’s easy :)
