Nutrition Talk / Adrenal Fatigue Support While Breastfeeding
« Last post by meaghanhicks on February 11, 2018, 05:34:39 PM »
I am working with a new mother who works full time, long hours, doesn't get to sleep well due to the baby, stress with just life and family. She is breastfeeding and one of her primary complaints is lack of energy, feeling exhausted all of the time and  brain fog. In addition to cleaning up her diet (removing dairy, gluten and increasing veggies, healthy fats and lean protein)  does anyone know of any stress/adrenal adaptogens that are safe while breastfeeding?

My recommendation would be for predominantly smoothies. One of my favorite smoothies, I call it the PB&J smoothie, is delicious, low sugar and meets all of your nutritional requirements.

I give rough estimates for quantities that go into it, because I don't use formal measurements.

PB&J Smoothie:

1-1 1/2 cups of raspberries and/or strawberries, frozen
1 cup of unsweetened, vanilla almond milk (can use coconut milk if you prefer)
2 tbsp almond butter
Ice as needed

Blend until desired consistency is achieved. You can also add a handful of spinach if you would like to make this have an added boost of greenery. I sometimes add protein powder, as you mentioned. A favorite brand of protein powder I have tried is Sun Warrior protein powder. Their protein source is mostly brown rice and they have a few formulas to choose from.

I have tried Tera's Whey before and it was good. I also have tried Bluebonnet protein powder and it was great. However, I no longer can tolerate whey protein, which is why I use Sun Warrior. I hope this helps!

Sherri,   I love sweet potatoes, they have so many nutrients.  http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=foodspice&dbid=64  I make a sweet potato pudding/soup.  It is my own little mix up.  Both my Husband and I love it.  We usually pour it over rice or potatoes or just eat it as is!  My dog benefits to as we save the skins for him, he loves sweet potatoes!
Sweet potato pludding
3-4 sweet potatoes
1 cup almond milk or non dairy milk of your choice
turmeric  to taste
cinnamon to taste
Optional:  chia seeds, and ground flax seed meal, 
equipment:  a strong blender  *mine has a soup function*
rinse and clean sweet potatoes *no need to peel* are easy to peel once cooked
Cook the sweet potatoes I use my instapot,   but can boil the potatoes until soft, fork tender
strain water reserving some to add to the blender
cut or mash the potatoes into smaller chunks *easier on the blender
place into blender
add 1 cup of almond milk and some of the reserved water from cooking the potatoes
add spices and super booster foods
may need to use tamper that comes with the blender a few times to aid the mixer & eyeball the mixture I sometimes add more liquid or plant milk as needed.
I use the soup function until smooth and creamy and hot. 
the soup is fluffy, creamy and naturally sweet.   
I also have some plant based puddings that I like but these have 1/2 cup of sugar chocolate and vanilla let me know if you want to try these.   I wish you well on your surgery and a speedy recovery!

I just been told that I am to eat soft and liquid foods for four weeks because of an upcoming oral surgery. I thought I would ask my wonderful classmates, instructors, and assistants to get your thoughts. In the next 5 days, would you submit any ideas that you may have to help me with getting through this period easier, I would appreciate it!
 
What recipes, snacks, and any other tips do you have?
Here are some things I need to watch:  No gluten, Low sugar (hypoglycemia), no soy. I try to stick with raw dairy (cheese) as much as possible.  Any recommendation on protein food powders--I don't really care for the taste of stevia, but if I have to, so be it.  I have had pea protein and it tastes chalky to me. Anybody ever try Tera's Whey?
Thanking you in advance!

If he is on blood pressure medication, he could have persistent cough as a side-effect (my cousin had this problem following a bout with flu). 

Otherwise high dose vitamin A (as found in the aforementioned liver) is quite effective.

Will he eat organic chicken liver? That would provide him with all  important nutrients in the proper balance without excess.
