Postpartum Recovery + GIVEAWAY

Postpartum Recovery + a yummy GIVEAWAY!!

June 27th, 2017 sweet Adaline was born. My world will forever be changed. For the better of course, but at the moment that world consists of very little sleep and very little time to worry about anything other than what’s most important in my life, which is my daughter. (still crazy to think I have a little daughter!!)

The fact that I am just now writing this post should give you an idea of how I have been managing my time. I thought I was going to have a lot more down time on my maternity leave. That baby would be chill and sleep often while I blog here and there, make dinner for the hubs before he comes home and take her out and about with out any worry. Welp, it’s been quite the opposite. To be honest, I don’t think I put too much thought in to it at all, which was part of the problem. I knew it was going to be tough taking care of an infant but I don’t think anyone can be fully mentally prepared. It’s more like a transition.

A transition from uncomfortable sleep while pregnant, to just flat out no sleep. From physical exhaustion while pregnant to just pure exhaustion (like exhaustion you never knew could exist). From feeling bloated and over weight to having what looks like a deflated floating device wrapped around your waist. From the constant debate on what to eat to avoid the terrible acid reflux or simply to satisfy those cravings to just flat out no time to eat. (Clearly I could go on.) Which is why I am so thankful to a few friends of ours that helped fuel and energize me in the time I needed it the most! Territory foods and Lumi juices seriously helped me survive those first few weeks transitioning in to my new life.

For two weeks, I had breakfast, lunch and dinner sent directly to my house for me and my husband. I can’t even begin to explain what a blessing this delivery system was in such a time of need. (Especially with no family around to bring me a chicken casserole!!) It’s so convenient and deliciously good. You can personalize the meals to your lifestyle, appetite and taste with all sustainably sourced real ingredients, curated by local chefs for a clean, tasty meal. Being a new mom, with of course little time and little energy I was looking for food to fuel and energize me to be up and alert to take care of whats most important (baby) and that is exactly what I got. They even implemented a postpartum filter in the menu to target and cater to these fragile times. And it goes with out saying how easy it was to heat up the meals with no prep time involved. Baby in one hand, fork in the other.

And for the mid day cravings and much needed pick me up, I turned to Lumi. One 16oz Lumi cold pressed juice provides an entire day’s serving of fruits and vegetables! Delicious and nutritious, right?! My favorite were the 2 oz. turmeric nutrition shots. It is great for uterus strength and to help fight inflammation. Trust me, your body will thank you later because that postpartum recovery is no joke. Another favorite was the Upbeet Pear, it was a tasty recharge I needed every day about mid-way to keep on chugging.

    I love juices! I normally buy mine at the grocery store or make them with our juicer. The Lumi shots look amazing though! I’d love to try them out. Being a mom of four littles I could use all the energy boosts I can get! Lol…

    Sounds great for this post partum time. Michelle, I love your description of the pregnancy to post baby challenges. Becoming a mom starts way before the baby is born! Limo sounds like a great pick me up.
