How effectively and efficiently you digest your food has a great impact on the quality of your breast milk, along with your overall health and well-being. 


Most postpartum recipes found in the west recommend consuming light salads and smoothies which are low in calorie content.

The recipes are intended for individuals who did not undergo intense labor because the food recommendations are too light, cold in temperature, and will inadequately replenish your nutrient stores. The food will cause your body to become weak and cause more wind in your body, leading to common ailments postpartum. You may get gas, bloating, indigestion, and loose stools.
