Recipes to Support Miscarriage

I know it's hard to think about eating while you are going through it, I know I have been there. The last thing on your mind is food, which for me was not normal. I had to force myself to even drink water (that is where the electrolyte drink comes in). As a holistic nutritionist I knew I needed to nourish myself, I knew it would help me heal faster, it would help all those negative thoughts and it would help relax the anxiety, tension and pain. If anything at all, sip on broths, teas, soups, and try to always get in healthy fats to fill you up and help support your hormones during this time. Liquids are key. You can also send these recipes to friends to help you out.
Nourishing Creamy Soup Recipe
Time: 45 minutes
3 cups bone broth (substitute vegetable broth if vegetarian)
2 cup roasted squash (butternut, delicata, or acorn)
1-2 tablespoons healthy fat- coconut oil, ghee, butter
1 can full-fat coconut milk
1 tablespoon turmeric
1-2 tablespoons fresh grated ginger
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Salt and pepper to taste
Optional protein: Add crispy prosciutto or bacon on top, shredded chicken or ground meat for added protein
Roast squash: Remove seeds and peel skin of squash and cut it into 2 inch cubes. Spray evenly with avocado oil spray or oil and roast in the oven at 400°F for 30 minutes or until soft. Alternatively, you could do this the night before.
Using a blender or immersion blender, blend all of the ingredients until smooth. If it's too thick, use broth to thin.
Heat blended soup for 7-10 minutes or until warmed and serve topped with protein if using.
Nourishing Hot Cocoa
2 cups full fat coconut milk (or milk of choice)
2-3 tablespoon cacao powder (make sure there is not sugar)
1 pinch real salt or celtic salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon (blood sugar balancer)
1 tablespoon ghee, grass-fed butter coconut oil
Pinch of chile powder (optional)
1 teaspoon sweetener of choice (raw honey, maple syrup)
In a saucepan heat up all ingredients and whisk together. Sip and breath.
Electrolyte Drink Recipe
(Provided in our Recovery Box)
Most all the electrolyte drinks on the market are packed with sugars, food coloring and other inflammatory ingredients. Co-founder and holistic nutritionist Torie has personally made this electrolyte drink to support your nervous system, relax muscles, assist in properly rehydrating you and help you replace your essential minerals your body needs.
1 teaspoon Real salt (rich in minerals)
1 teaspoon Magnesium (bisglycinate instead of citrate because this form will not affect stools)
Additions: lemon (to replace potassium), raw honey or manuka honey to make it taste better
Add to a large 2 quart pitcher of water or hot tea, or coconut water. You can make it into a concentrate and keep it in the fridge and add it to water as you drink it. This vial makes 2 servings which should last 4 days.
