Baby, It’s You

Health guru Jeannette Ogden of @shutthekaleup has a very simple mantra: “listen to your body.” She’s a mama with an outstanding balance as fitness instructor, mom to Elliott Grey and “real food” enthusiast. She’s also a fan of the new Beyond Yoga x Solly Baby collaboration wrap in Rose Quartz (pictured above).

Jeannette recently shared some nutrition tips, on-the-go must haves and advice for feeling best after baby with Solly Baby. Here are some of our favorite tips:

Favorite breakfast?
My favorite breakfast is either a green smoothie with spinach, pineapple, frozen banana and harmless harvest coconut water or my signature sweet potato bowl which includes a steamed sweet potato, organic berries, PB, siggis vanilla yogurt and purely elizabeth grain free granola. I’m tellin’ ya, it’s sooooo good!

Best food indulgence?
Doughnuts, Any sort of gluten, and ice cream!

Secrets to clean eating when eating out?
The less ingredients the better. Always carry a snack with you just in case the day gets hectic. The things I always have on hand are an apple, orange, perfect bar, a PB packet or trail mix to keep me energized. But life is all about balance so if there’s something that just sounds so good, get it. Treat yo self!

A nutrition tip we don’t (but should!) know?
Start taking collagen ladies! It’s helped me with my hair loss from post partum hormones, it’s brightened my skin, helped with digestion and has a good amount of protein with every serving. It’s the best thing I’ve purchased this year!

Best fitness routine for moms of newborns?
Take a walk with the babe in your solly wrap mamas! It truly helps those post partum hormones. The fresh air will calm you and help your thought process.

How do you push yourself when it hurts?
I just go. I have a goal to give 100% when I’m in my fitness zone so I have no excuse but to go!

What are your top on-the-go must haves for your mom bag?
My on the go must haves I keep in my mom bag is; a PB perfect bar for fuel, my healthy human life stainless steel tumbler filled with black coffee to the top, Sophie the giraffe cause Elliott loves it, honest diapers and wipes, zoe organics everything balm and of course, my solly wrap and solly swaddle.

What has Elliott taught you about priorities? balance?
Elliott has taught me to be patient and slow down. I take my time with everything we do. It’s been a bit difficult to keep up with my blog and responding to emails so my priorities have shifted big time. I love being able to give all my time to my little guy but finding a good balance has been a bit difficult since his schedule changes so often. I take every day as it comes and try my best to get things done without stressing out. Staying positive is key and knowing everything will get done it due time keeps me motivated.
