Nicole’s cooking and care was exactly what I needed after my son was born and healing from my C-section. Being a first time mom I loved having Nicole’s healing and anti-inflammatory Ayurvedic foods in the house to help start on a nutritious path while having very little energy to think about anything. I still eat kitcheri, oatmeal and lots of turmeric as a part of my normal diet now with a 3 year old.
We’ve got you.
Growing a baby is intense, both physically and emotionally. And then there’s the birth. However your little one came into the world, birth is major work for your body.
Recent research reveals that it takes 12 months to recover from having a baby – much longer than the 6-8 weeks we are accustomed to hearing.
We often overlook our own recovery in place of taking care of the new life in the house. Before you even notice, depletion comes on quickly and contributes to poor milk supply, exhaustion, dehydration and long term emotional, hormonal, and nutritional stress.
Baby brain, anyone?
A combination of healing spices with good carbs, protein, and healthy fats is what you need to put your body and mind on the fast track to recovery and milk supply on high.
You don’t need to sacrifice food you love, or food at all. If anything, we want you to eat more and have it be comforting, so delicious, and healing.
In good health,
Nicole + Jamie

Your body is heavy and sluggish after birth. Hormones are resetting and nutrient levels are low. The body needs iron and minerals to get recovered and balanced again. Most of all, the body needs to stay warm so energy goes to recovery and rebuilding. High in minerals and iron, Chai does all of this (there’s no tea in our so no caffeine, it’s just a spice blend you can add to other teas, coffee or lattes).
Combine with Mother’s Breakfast in the morning, or Chai is the perfect afternoon pick-me-up tea or latte companion.
+ Turmeric Anti-inflammatory
+ Ginger Antioxidant
+ Cardamom Gut-soothing

All the flavor you need to make a Countertop Kitcheri Bowl, which is our go to postpartum meal, our Kitcheri seasoning is also just an incredibly delicious and healthy cooking hack for anything savory. It’s salt-free, since you need as much water as possible in postpartum (but if you’re craving salt, listen to your body, and add at the end).
Add Kitcheri seasoning before cooking or to any pre-made mashed potatoes, roasted veggies, eggs, chili, any one pot/crock pot meal. Golden Butter and Kitcheri seasoning is all you need to add to anything in the crock pot to make awesome tasting and awesome for you.

More expensive than gold, saffron is so important postpartum because it’s very mind calming and beneficial for serotonin levels. It’s also a blood builder and purifier, and you need to feed the blood oxygen and iron to keep boosting red blood cell count (RBC = iron, energy, feel good).

Simply put, Kitcheri (pronounced kich-ah-ree and sometimes spelled khichadi or khichdi), is Ayurveda’s answer to chicken soup. It’s comforting, easy, and above all, nourishing and super easy to digest. It is the ultimate postpartum food. Kitcheri is mineral rich and filled with potassium, folate, copper, zinc, iron, selenium and magnesium, all which you’e given over in big quantities to your new baby.
The marriage of white basmati rice and split mung beans (the one legume that won’t cause intestinal discomfort) provides the 10 essential amino acids that our body doesn’t make but needs, forming a complete plant based protein. Your body always needs amino acids, but especially when you are recovering from birth as they aid in getting your body back into balance.
Kitcheri is loaded with iron and protein to keep mood imbalance in check. Plus, the blend of spices is chock full of anti-inflammatories and digestive aids. New mommas should eat Kitcheri at least once a day if not throughout the day during the first month of post-baby.
