Black Bean Salsa
The body needs great nourishment during the healing and recovery stage of postpartum. In this time of adjustment and transition it can often be difficult to find the time necessary to eat adequately for your health, energy and the support of a well established milk supply for your new baby. This salsa makes that easy! Packed with omegas, healthy fat, a ton of nutrients, and added protein depending on your dipping choice.
This recipe was passed down to me from one of my Midwives, and has been a blessing throughout my breastfeeding journeys.
