Replenishing from pregnancy workshop + beetroot truffles
Our Nutritionist Emma Lynasrecently teamed up with healthy chef and queen of making home cooking simple – Melanie Leeson from Mettle + Gracefor Shift Presents: The Fourth Trimester – Replenishing from Pregnancy & Recovering from Birth.It was such an amazing and informative workshop that showed just how simple you can make optimum nutrition after bubs arrives.
Emma and Mel worked together to create tons of recipes that required specific food and nutrients to help with replenishing and recovery after birth. One of my favourites was the Beetroot Truffles. Rich in magnesium and nutrients to help with blood flow and gut health, the added brewers yeast for breastfeeding mums can assist with milk supply too. Not pregnant or post part? All good, these Beetroot Truffles are still a snack friendly, kid friendly option!
