Food, nutrition, why we eat it and how it impacts us has always been an overwhelming passion of mine, leading me to becoming a Qualified Nutritionist and Gut and Psychology Syndrome Practitioner. After working in the field, consulting with clients and speaking over Australia for nearly 7 years, I became pregnant in 2017 and my world changed. Experiencing the societal pressure and nutritional demands of growing and breastfeeding my baby firsthand ignited an even deeper passion within me.
During this transformative time, I noticed a heavy emphasis on women relying solely on synthetic, isolated nutrients, without proper education on the significance of getting nutrients from whole foods. Understanding the power of nutrient synergy that exists within natural foods, I became even more determined to delve into this approach, educate others on it and that’s when my venture towards creating the The Mothers Blend by Foraged For You began, which was a complete heart and soul driven project.
Before it’s existence, I was spending far too much money and time ensuring I was having all the food based nutrients I needed to support myself and baby. There was curiosity of what I was having from not only followers and clients, but friends and family. From here grew an overwhelming, almost out of body desire and drive to create something that encompassed the necessary nutrients in a convenient and affordable way that is gentle on our digestive system, included only the highest quality of each ingredient, and came from the one jar.
Liver for iron, B vitamins, zinc, folate and choline, kelp for iodine, camu camu for vitamin C, fermented chlorella, broccoli, spinach and lentils all for potent micronutrients, the gentle removal of heavy metals, beetroot juice for folate and nitrates to enhance nutrient delivery, and much more.
I'm incredibly excited that The Mothers Blend is now available within Le Puree’s ready-made smoothies, offering a convenient delivery right to your doorstep to perk up a depleted mama or nourish an entire family.. It has been incredibly well-received, often termed as 'the local crack,' 'the cult addiction,' and 'the magic powder.' This is creating a smoothie like no other; you’re getting ‘almost’ everything we need in every sip. I'm proud to share the wonders of nutrient-dense whole foods with all the mothers out there, helping them nourish themselves and their little ones in the best possible way. Honestly, the endless reviews in my inbox and on the website keep me going, and even encourage me to have MY daily dose when I am feeling lazy. The blood testing results have improved in thousands of women, the energy lifted, the moods enhanced and balanced, the regulated and painless periods, and so… much… more.
Now to the smoothie you can devour…
Don’t be turned off, because I promise you that the smoothie is delicious and almost like a chocolate milkshake, but I have sneakily combined the smoothie with veggies like cauliflower and cucumber, because like any human in our current society, there are far too many things that can come in between firstly WANTING to eat vegetables but then preparing and eating them! It can be a lot, especially when you have possibly no hands to prepare them when you’re postpartum.
I suggest when you’re blending it, to add a little source of protein if you can! This might be an egg, some nut butter, or a couple of tablespoons of collagen if you can. You can add them all or just one, but a little more fat and protein will make you fuller for longer, assist in balancing your blood sugar levels, and therefore potentially be a happier mama!
