At 18 and 21, respectively, my baby girls are far from being babies but I don’t think I’ll ever forget what it feels like to have newborn children.  You’re ecstatic and scared; enamored and overwhelmed—  it’s a tornado and a rainbow all at once! Fear not, Supermom; you are now an energy source for two and I’ve got the recipes that’ll help you pack your day with punch and keep energy levels high. Plus, you won’t have to trade precious moments that could be spent sleeping, chopping away in the kitchen.

Chia Seed Pudding

Chia seed pudding is the easiest healthy staple to any kitchen. The word “chia” actually comes from the Mayan word for “strength.” Strength is what you need!

Mix one-part chia seeds to four-parts nut milk of your choice (I love almond or macadamia) and let sit overnight. Top with berries in the AM for a superfood boost to start your day on the right foot.

Matcha Green Tea Latte

For the times when it seems all you want to do is go back to bed, enjoy this matcha green tea latte at breakfast.

Lentil and Herb Butter Cups

Not only is this recipe super simple to make, it’s an easy one to make, store and eat all week long.

Figs with Macadamia Nut Cheese

This is my go-to party appetizer but it’s also an incredible energy-boosting snack. Figs provide the magnesium, B-vitamins and fiber that we love for energy, while macadamia nuts provide Vitamin A, iron and protein. The dish as a whole provides that sweet and salty sweet spot that will keep you from reaching for junkier snacks.
