The Perfect Smoothie for a Nursing Mother

This simple smoothie recipe holds a special place in my heart. When we were new parents with our first son, we were sleep deprived and malnourished. We never felt like cooking… We had a family friend (who is like a second mom to me) bring us the ingredients for this on a tray, along with […]
