What to eat after childbirth and why:
With a newborn baby, eating well and regularly can be a challenge. A lack of time and inclination to go shopping or cook quickly leads to a quick bite of something still in the cupboard, ordering food, or even not eating at all. While a nutritious meal is essential for new parents to stay on their feet and recover optimally.
Whole grains, such as spelt, are a source of fiber and therefore the perfect carbohydrate to encourage the body’s recovery and fight muscle fatigue.
In addition, constipation is a frequently heard side effect of postpartum hormones and possible medication, so a lot of fiber-rich food is not an unnecessary luxury.
Eating a lot of salty meals after delivery, such as steaming curries and warming stir-fries, is essential to get your body’s minerals back on track.
Known as the most natural and healthy ‘candy’ known to nature, because it gives you a quick energy boost. Blend them mainly through your meals, smoothies and homemade sauces, or use some ready-made date syrup.
Lentils and beans
Iron poverty is a well-known phenomenon, so consuming lentils, legumes, whole grains and green vegetables is a good idea.
While red meat also contains iron, it does not contain fiber. Legumes, on the other hand, do and are therefore a safer choice if your body benefits from a higher dose of fiber than normal.
In addition, the combination of carbohydrates, iron and calories stimulates milk production, so this can be a good support if you are breastfeeding.
Essential Fatty Acids
Scientific research shows that low omega-3 ratios are linked to postpartum depression. For example, walnuts are both super nutritious and a great source of omega 3 fatty acids, chock full of fiber, copper, manganese, vitamin E and antioxidants.
One of the greatest discoveries is the role of the microbiome, consisting of more than 100 trillion bacteria that live in the gut. To keep our microbiome in balance, it is important to eat pre- and probiotic-rich foods. these strengthen your immune system and improve your bowel movements.
Prebiotics are fiber, commonly found in plant foods. Probiotics are the good bacteria that live in your gut. A combination of these 2 can be found in sauerkraut; fermented cabbage that is not only a seasoning, but also provides many benefits.
