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!

surprisingly delicious and filling!

I’m usually a big meat eater, so when I saw this was just veggies, I was worried I wouldn’t like it. I was very wrong. This is filling and hearty, it’s soft without feeling super mushy, and I enjoyed the flavor.

I was able to eat this for four separate meals; these servings are huge. I know these probably aren’t culturally the right flavorings for this, but I had it differently each time: once with avocado and green onion, then with lime, then with hot sauce, and then with soft boiled eggs. I enjoyed it each time. I also had some just plain to start out, too, and -it’s just good. I’m glad I didn’t poo-poo this for lack of meat.

Not our favorite

I really enjoy Indian food so I thought I’d like this one but I couldn’t get past one of the flavors in it or maybe it was the texture of the whole spices and sweet potato with the soft rice. (The picture does not show how prominent the sweet potato is in real life) I ended up making an Indian curry/soup type dish and trying to add the rice but everyone requested the curry without the rice please and I couldn’t blame them. This is the only meal I was willing to share and none of the kids wanted it lol Does anyone have good ways to serve this where the flavor isn’t overwhelming and the mushy texture goes with it? I don’t like to waste but I’m not sure how to use up my other one. The one good thing is that this meal does help with digestion and that’s very nice postpartum.

A postpartum staple

Kitchari is a traditional postpartum staple. As a midwife, I’ve been invited to join in on a bowl of my fair share. Mama Meals Kitchari is done right. A lot of times Kitchari can be more blan in flavor but this one IS NOT! I loved the pairing recommendations as well. This is a meal that I want to keep on hand all the time!

Worth a Try!

I received this in a post partum
meal package. I wouldn’t have chosen it on my own, but I’m so glad I tried it. It’s easy to digest and super charged with nutrients for recovery.
