28 days is the magic number for the most essential recovery, and this meal plan is recommended for those with an uncomplicated vaginal birth.
We have interpreted and adapted the traditional Chinese postnatal confinement ritual meals to fit modern society. Things have changed a bit in the last century, people are more familiar with health and wellness than ever before. Traditional rituals must address modern-day issues such as the vast amount of chemicals and toxins in our food system, particularly when even the foods that look natural, are not necessarily healthy.
Women of today know this, and you know you deserve the most nutritious, delicious, and most importantly, good clean food, especially at the time when you are creating new life.
Women of today are also fast-paced. With children, life becomes even busier. And certainly women of today need more than double-boiled soups and steamed foods for a month to keep them happy.

The sous vide advantage
Studies show sous vide cooking can help to retain the highest amount of the vulnerable vitamin C, and may even increase phytonutrient carotenoids by 1.1 to 1.8 times. This temperature-controlled cooking method is the best way to preserve many important nutrients, flavour, as well as to prevent overcooking.
