Growing a human is hard and takes a heavy toll on the body. With all the pressure, lack of sleep, and learning that comes with a new baby, most moms feel overwhelmed and forget they need to nourish themselves, heal, and replenish lost nutrients!
At Mama Meals we know it takes a village, that's why we source the highest quality ingredients, cook them using ancestral principles from Chinese medicine, Ayurveda, and Weston A. Price, then deliver them frozen to your door. Simply heat, serve and enjoy.
Postpartum, aka the 4th trimester, is a sacred time of physical and emotional healing. The body must replenish lost nutrients, produce breast milk and rebalance hormones all while bonding with a new baby. Our ancestors knew that new Moms should avoid cold, raw, dry, crunchy foods in favor of warm, soft, easy-to-digest meals that promote healing.
Birth, after all, isn’t just about making babies, but also about making strong, capable mothers who believe in their own inner strength. – Barbara Katz Rothman.
My first postpartum was a struggle. I ate the wrong things and ended up constipated, tired, and feeling blah all the time. Before my 2nd was born we prepped and froze 60 postpartum specific meals to have ready, and WHAT A DIFFERENCE! I recovered quickly, my husband spent less time cooking, and life in general just felt easier. I started Mama Meals to bring this traditional wisdom to Moms everywhere!
Everything tasted great and was so satisfying. I was a little hesitant because some of the meals were different than things I normally ate (i.e. liver and Kitchari), but I was pleasantly surprised and loved it all. It really simplified life and made it so I always had something easy, nourishing, and filling on hand those first several weeks with a newborn and toddler at home.Orange County, CA
I wish I knew about Mama Meals before I had my first baby! Postpartum is so hard as it is, and cooking is even harder. The oatmeals saved me in the morning and those lactation cookies are seriously delicious. I’m 9 months postpartum now and I still order meals! They are so hearty and quick to heat. I recommend this to every mom, especially right after having a baby.Orange County, CA
I had my baby 1.5 weeks ago and these meals have been an absolute GODSEND. It’s all so delicious, nutritious, comforting, and best of all easy to make. This has been my easiest recovery and I think a lot has to do with the lack of stress to feed myself. Also, my baby has reacted well to everything! Thank you Holly!! I will order again!Orange County, CA
These meals were a lifesaver during postpartum. I actually ate a few of them the final weeks of pregnancy since I was too exhausted to cook. My kids loved them too! All the food is so healing, and cooked with such intention and love. It’s obvious Holly is passionate about what she does. I can’t recommend her service enough and so grateful to have found her!Orange County, CA
If you’re like me and looking for healthy, nutrient dense postpartum meals (that are also delicious) you have to try Mama Meals. Holly goes above and beyond with quality, which I highly appreciate. Every ingredient has a purpose. And she uses the proper fats and cooking techniques to make the most nutritious, easily digestible foods for mamas.Orange County, CA
I wasn't the biggest cooking husband, and trying to figure out what to eat with a newborn was so stressful. The oatmeals for breakfast and chili for lunch/ dinner was a gamechanger. They were easy, tasty, and we actually looked forward to them. It sounds weird, but feel like the meals set me up to be a better cook! I've started cooking much more and it feels normal.Orange County, CA
Mama Meals was a lifesaver for me postpartum, especially when my husband went back to work. They were easy to warm up and super filling, plus the lactation cookies were a delicious treat to have throughout the day. It took so much anxiety away knowing I had high quality nutrient dense meals for myself ready to go so I could relax and heal with my babe. Cannot recommend them enough!Orange County, CA
It took me until my third birth to realize the power of having healthy, nutrient-dense FOOD is the first line of healing for a new mom. Mama Meals was 100% the difference between my last postpartum journeys and the success I’ve had this time around. The meals are crafted with love, packed with great quality ingredients, absolutely delicious AND set me up for great success with having my milk come in!Orange County, CA
Postpartum is hard, and trying to eat a healthy balanced diet is harder when you’re sleep deprived and getting to know your new baby. Mama Meals took all of the hard work off our plate (pun intended). It made preparing nourishing and delicious meals something we didn’t have to worry about, which was such a relief for me and my husband. He was able to be more present with us during such a special but exhausting time.Orange County, CA
