Customer Love...

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.

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!

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!

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.

I reached out to Holly when my milk supply started to crash early postpartum. She gave me a list of things to help and whipped me up some amazingly tasty oatmeal and lactation cookies that were better than anything I had tried! Everything she made helped, and the lactation cookies were so good my husband couldn't stop eating them.

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!

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.

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!

Awesome Customer Service + Ingredients, Could Use a Little More Meat, Veg + Fruit

I’m grateful to have healthy food made by people who really care about what they're doing and their customers experience. I had a few exchanges with their owner, Eric and was really impressed by his responsiveness and openness. I grew to LOVE the chicken congee once I added my own veggies and ghee and Eric explained to me that the meat and liver are basically pulverized so there is a lot more protein and nutrient density than appears with the naked eye. Personally, I'd love if the Hearty Sausage Stew and the Chili had less potatoes and more meat and the Kitchari and Lentil soup had more of the lentils and less starch. I know they are doubling the amount of berries going forward in the Berry Congee. On the whole, I had a super great experience with Mama Meals, and the brownies are BOMB.

Truly saved me

Let me start off by saying that I had a very traumatic birth experience. This was supposed to be another homebirth, but it turned into a critical emergency rapidly, and our daughter was born via emergency cesarean. I was not in labor when my husband rushed me to the emergency room, I ruptured my esophagus and was bleeding internally. Now that the TMI is out-of-the-way, I can say that based on my extended stay in the hospital, my inability to nurse my daughter due to being in the ICU (completely separate building from the Nicu) the stress and medications and harassment from all staff because of my “non compliant views” and “holistic lifestyle” my milk should not have come in. I am so thankful I invested in this meal service before delivery. The food was literally like a warm hug like the founder describes. The hospital food was absolutely atrocious and I cannot believe we are still serving kraft ranch dressing and cold salads after a woman gives birth. My milk typically comes in about eight hours After I deliver, this has been true for my four previous children. It finally came in on day five and I one thousand percent believe it was because of the nourishment I was receiving from these meals. I will also say for all of you cesarean mamas, you know how excruciating your first bowel movement can be after surgery. Mine was just like any other day. Absolutely no pain or suffering. Miraculous if you have been there and done that.. I just got notice My shipment was sent off today for more meals and I cannot wait to receive them. Seriously contemplating investing and having these in my freezer year-round. Even if you have the support for your post partum journey, I cannot recommend more highly having these meals on hand just in case. The chicken congee, sausage stew and chili were by far the best. Thank you Holly for following your passion. You are saving lives.

Delicious, thoughtful, and convenient

As someone who is truly the cook of the family but often puts herself last when it comes to making sure I have enough food, these mama meals were a life saver. I was able to meal prep for my son and husband and then rely on mama meals to feed me nutritious, healing and delicious food. This took a lot of stress off my husband and myself knowing everyone is being fed well including me. So far, everything I’ve tried from the chai pancakes, primal chili, Ayurvedic kitchari and berry oatmeal congee, has tasted absolutely delicious.
