Hi I'm a breastfeeding mom, trying to stay vegan. As you know breastfeeding burns alot of calories and I have lost too much weight. My question is, are there any premade vegan food(s)/drinks etc that are very high calories that anyone knows of. I'm looking for easy easy easy! I am a single mom finding it hard to cook and work etc.
Advice would be great!

Laura bars & guacamole. I love them, but they are too high in calories for me to eat as much as I'd like. Lucky you!

They have a very nice ingredient list, just nuts, fruit, dates and spices, nothing else, just like you would make at home. Good luck!

Also add avocados and nuts to your salads or smoothies - really ups the calories with healthy fats. Nut butter sandwiches on the denser whole grain breads are nutrient and calorie dense, too. If you are breastfeeding and losing too much weight, then the extra fats are fine.
