When Annabelle was born we were blessed to have meals brought to us for two weeks straight. It was generous and nothing short of amazing.

I remember eating nothing but fast food, crackers, and peanut butter toast in those weeks following my first birth and I regret it. Nourishing meals can provide a new mother with energy and replenishment after a hard labor. They can help her to rest and bond with her new little one. They can help along her recovery and boost the family’s moral during those sleepless early days.

In short, I now recognize the blessing of pulling together as a community and helping a sister out when she has a baby. I wrote about the foods that are most nourishing for her and her family at the Plan to Eat Blog. If you’re interested, check it out.
