Welcome to Maternal Grounding (and a smoothie recipe).
This is my brand new business that I have been working on for the past year and as you have probably already read, I absolutely love nurturing mamas and everything to do with women’s health, massage, fitness and nutrition.
So I thought I would start my first blog with talking about my daily nutrition and advice.
Being a first time mummy has definitely been a whole new level of learning. My day seems to go so fast and in the blink of an eye, it is bed time already. While I am left wondering what exactly have I done or accomplished today?
Don’t get me wrong, just looking after your brand new baby is more than enough to accomplish during the day but sometimes I need to do the washing, make the beds, clean the toilets, clean the bathrooms etc etc.
So as the day progresses, I remember that I also need to eat and nourish my body with healthy food to not only eat, but to give myself energy!
My biggest tip to everyone is…. have food prepared, especially your breakfast!!
Some mornings I just don’t have the time to actually make my breakfast and sit down to eat it (as the baby is probably crying and needing her nappy changed)
So I have been preparing smoothies by keeping fruit already cut up and placed in sandwich bags in the freezer.
My Morning Smoothie Recipe
- 1 Banana
- 1/2 A Handful of Frozen Berries
- 10cm of Cucumber
- 4 Walnuts
- 1 tsp of Chia Seeds
- 1 Handful of Baby Spinach
- 4 Ice Cubes
- Water (amount to your liking)
Have everything prepared and frozen in individual sandwich bags.
Simple put everything in an blender or ninja bullet for about 1 minute.
This makes my mornings run so much smoother and I am fuelled up and ready to go!
Have a try of this smoothie recipe and let me know how you go!
