When you’re off to visit a mom after delivering a baby one word of advice. Always bring food! After the deliveries of my babies at the hospital I was shocked at the junk they provide to women post partum. Nothing to nourish and heal the body. They need a serious overhaul on nutrition. In Asia for example guests bring mom pigs feet soup. The rich gelatin and minerals are healing and “yang”. But don’t worry if pigs feet turn you off you can make this nice gentle broth that is rejuvenating for those who have been sick or are recovering from child birth.
Potassium(Vit K) is the third most abundant mineral. It stabilizes blood sugar and levels, maintains optimal muscle and nerve function, improves bone health and prevents muscle cramps, boosts metabolism, maintains heart and kidney health, maintains optimal fluid(hello! breast milk) and it’s a powerful stress buster.
