Raising four boys is hectic and fun, but mommy often seems to be the one lacking in nutrients and missing meals. I know that try as I might sometimes the day just gets away from me and although I try and always sit to eat with the boys, some days it just doesn't happen and before I know it I am bundling them up and running out the door without having breakfast. Most days I’m lucky to get to the bathroom by myself let alone have time to sit and enjoy breakfast so I usually grab something fast and easy to fill the gap and run.
I especially try to stay on top of my eating and nutrition while breastfeeding babies as you really need to keep up your energy level and provide the good stuff for baby to eat. I always try to look for organic and healthy options but I have to admit if I only have a minute to grab something sometimes it’s not the best or healthiest choice, but sometimes I feel like at least I ate something..
This is why I was super excited to try Now for Mothers Healing Mix. It is a nutritious blend of natural and organic ingredients that help to nourish, heal and provide the healing post pregnancy mother with much needed energy. There are no colourings, additives, preservatives, flavours or anything so it is super safe and healthy for mom and baby. It even aids in lactation! With the fats and precursor fats it may even help baby sleep better!
At first I was expecting to open the bag and find a powder to add to things but was surprised to find a coarse blend of nuts, oats, raisins, and seeds. I didn’t love the texture right out of the bag but loved the addition of the raisins as it made it taste quite good. I found my favourite way to eat the Healing mix was to add it to some cereal or even to some yogurt (very yummy!!) Other ways to try it is sprinkled on top of oatmeal (another yummy choice if you have time to make the oatmeal J) and the traditional way is to eat with warm milk.
Now for Mother’s Healing Mix is packed full of omega 3 and 6, Iron, and Potassium. It is the first supplementation of its kind for providing energy and nutrition to post pregnancy mothers. It was just what I needed to give me energy and kept me feeling full with sustained energy without the crash (a great perk when you know your full of the good stuff and not filling up on junk!)
I was really impressed with Now for Mother’s healing mix and love that a quick bite left me feeling full and satisfied for hours. I also love knowing that both baby and I were filling up with good healthy organic food. It kept us both happy healthy and full.
