Continuing on our lactation kick here at The Organic Beauty, we have a new delicious recipe from a beautiful mama, my friend Tara at Tara Josette Snacks. Tara is part of the amazing community of new mamas that I’m so lucky to be a part of here in LA, and she’s always bringing these super duper yummy lactation balls to our mommy playdates. No joke, you guys, these things are FOR REAL. After eating a couple delicious little balls, my milk got flowing like crazy, which was especially crucial after my supply took a hit when I starting my period again : ( (For more ways to naturally boost milk supply, click here).
The delicious lactation balls have a bunch of ingredients that are amazing for milk supply (like brewer’s yeast and oats) and quality (like coconut oil and nuts). They are naturally sweet and are perfect for satisfying a sugar craving healthfully. They’re loaded with healthy fats, protein, and whole grains, so they’re also awesome for keeping you full and stabilizing blood sugar. The long and the short of it.. They’re awesome. Here are a few words about them from the lovely Tara:
Raw bites are so popular and with good reason, I’m a huge fan of these high nutrition little orbs of energy and have many different versions in my arsenal. Free of gluten and dairy and naturally sweetened with dates, they are so easy to whizz up and keep on hand for little emergency pick me ups. Or dessert. They have a ton of good fats and can be packed with superfood ingredients to charge up their nutritional profile.
