In this episode, I interview my friend Lisa, the founder of Bumpin Blends, about common nutritional needs during pregnancy!
Here are the topics we go over:
- Iron deficiency
- DASH diet for preeclampsia
- Gestational Diabetes
Lisa Mastela, MPH, RD is a registered dietitian with a masters in nutrition and public health. She did research at the University of Washington on special needs children and type 2 diabetes, along with research on intermittent fasting at the University of Southern California. She then worked in personalized nutrition. After getting pregnant herself, she realized how difficult nutrition for expecting and new mothers is, so she founded Bumpin Blends, a company that makes and delivers dietitian-designed smoothie cubes to support the many symptoms of new motherhood. All a mom has to do is pour the Bumpin Blends cubes into her blender, add liquid, and blend, for a nutritious snack to help everything from fatigue and anxiety to leg cramps and swelling, and everything in between. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband and busy toddler, Caroline, and loves hiking, yoga, and movie nights in.
