As a breastfeeding mom, you really need to take care of what you eat, because what you eat is what your baby is eating. I want our baby to be healthy, so each day, I try to eat the best I can for her and for me.

I will be honest, it’s not easy every day! I have to admit sometimes, Leandro needs to remind me to add some things into my diet to have a more complete diet, because yes as a vegan, we need to look even more carefully on what we eat while breastfeeding.

That’s why, since last week, I decided to add a new routine to my life to kick-start my day: I will prepare myself red smoothie protein boost for my breakfast. It’s only the first part of my breakfast, to help my system to work again after a whole night of rest/fast.

It was so healthy that I want to share with you the recipe.

It is for everyone, breastfeeding or not, vegan or not, but it’s definitely for people who want to eat healthy!
