Postpartum Recovery- Lentil Soup

Postpartum Recovery- Lentil Soup


This soup comes from my mother in law. It was great just after I gave birth. I wasn’t feeling like eating, but thanks to the high amount of proteins (and its delicious taste!), this soup helped my postpartum recovery. I now love it after my workouts! You need an hour to make it, but make a bunch, so once it’s made you can store it for the next 2 or 3 days in the fridge.

SugarBabies Blog- Postpartum Recovery Lentil Soup



Hi! I’m Julie. I have a Masters Degree from the French University of Sport Sciences and teach Physical Education. As a new Mom, I believe that an active, healthy lifestyle is one of the greatest gifts one can share with their child. My husband and I promised ourselves that life would be more fun, more active and even richer than it was before we were parents. Being fit and active with a young family isn’t impossible, it just requires a bit of planning and creative problem solving. Today, we’ve adapted our way of exercising to include our baby in all our adventures. We are still as active as we were before being parents and our bodies are stronger than ever! I started a Blog called and @ourfitfamilylife on Instagram to share our experiences and insight. Enjoy!
