Are you in a rut on what to make for meals? Do you know how to create "balanced" meals?
This 4 week meal plan and weekly shopping lists (!!) are designed to take some of the stress and guesswork out of how to nourish and heal your postpartum body during the postpartum period.
Specific nutrients we are looking to ensure we are getting enough of in the prenatal/postpartum period are iron, selenium, choline, vitamin K2, vitamin A, glycine, vitamin D, and iodine.
You will note that there are 4 days of meals in each week in this guide (total of 16 days). I want to encourage you to batch cook meals in order to have leftovers and save yourself time throughout the week. You can follow the meals day by day, mix and match based on preference, or even choose a day, batch-cook the meals, and then consume them over the course of the week.
The meals are primarily animal based however there is a substitution list incase you're vegan/vegetarian or follow other diet restrictions.
