A note from Bumpin Blends Founder Lisa Mastelo:
THERE I WAS, 8 MONTHS PREGNANT, CRYING OVER SPILLED CHIA SEEDS…
I had used smoothies throughout my pregnancy as a means to meet my baby’s needs while nurturing my own — getting my nutrients in while including ingredients to soothe my nausea, bring down my swollen ankles, and of course, to satisfy my cookie dough cravings!
As a registered dietitian, even I was overwhelmed by not only the sheer number of nutritional needs to be met when making a tiny human (folate, and vitamin D, and omega-3s… oh my!), but how challenging it was to squeeze all these nutrients into my day (especially since I really just felt like eating mac n cheese and mint chip ice cream).
On that particular morning, accidentally breaking open a full bag of chia seeds and having them spill all over the floor was no surprise. It was one of many recent clumsy moments in the kitchen, including blending a wooden spatula into an acai bowl, visiting the ER after a failed chopping carrots situation (ten stitches!), staining our countertop with wild blueberries, just to name a few… I was officially too pregnant to play in the kitchen, which made me wonder if other mamas out there were feeling that way, too.
So, I set out to help other women, moms, and soon-to-be mamas meet their nutritional needs and nurture their symptoms in an easy, fast, and delicious way. No more crying over spilled chia seeds.
Blended with love,
