What I Eat As A Vegan Breastfeeding Mom

Over two months as a breastfeeding mama and there has been no shortage of good food over here. I am definitely hungrier than usual, but have been trying to eat as well as I can. Being home does make this tough… especially when it’s too easy to make a vegan mug cake. I find myself gravitating towards a lot of carbs, too. I think this is mostly because making pasta is quick and easy when I am so busy during the day taking care of Willow. But I’m not perfect. I’ve also been trying to make more salads and greens. Balance is a good thing, yeah? Anyways. You’re here for the food inspiration and ideas.

As always, follow along on Instagram for more plant-based food inspiration. xx
