I feel like I've been doing a lot of searching for recipes for various things, and I thought it might be fun to have a thread that is specifically for recipe-sharing. Things like Lactation Cookie recipes, Labourade recipes and Placenta Smoothie Recipes. Also, good postpartum meal recipes, and anything else you can think of!
So to start, this is the Lactation Cookie recipe I'm going to be making for a friend of mine who is vegan. I thought it was seasonally appropriate, with the pumpkin puree.
I'm also going to be adding spices to the recipe, probably 1 tsp of cinnamon, then a largeish pinch of powdered ginger, and smallish pinches of nutmeg and cardamom.
I think I'll make the same recipe for myself, but unveganize it - using eggs and butter (but keeping the flax meal).
As for my Placenta Smoothie recipe, this is what I'm going to be doing since I want to keep my placenta fresh and not freeze it.
Divide placenta into eighths. (The goal is to drink two placenta smoothies a day, with an eighth of a placenta in each.)
Combine with frozen blueberries and strawberries, half a banana, a dollop of plain, high probiotic yogurt, frozen coconut water and some honey.
Combine with frozen strawberries, a whole frozen banana, high probiotic yogurt and a big spoonful of peanut butter.
Drink smoothie quickly so that it stays COLD. Apparently the placenta taste becomes more apparent as the smoothie warms.
This is the LabourAde recipe from my midwives.
