  1. I am nursing – would it be a good idea to add in another snack? I am nervous about decreasing my supply. Thanks!

    • I recommend discussing your nutrition program with your doctor. In general, my philosophy is to use this as a guide and “make it your own”. I don’t want you to feel depleted so definitely feel free to increase your healthy snacks and proportions.
