Placenta Smoothie

Placenta
1 cup fresh-squeezed orange juice
½ cup plain organic whole-milk yogurt
1 cup frozen strawberries

Note: Feel free to substitute in your favorite smoothie ingredients.

1. Put on gloves if you'd like to use them.

2. Place your placenta on a tray, and see where you feel called to remove a piece of it to use in this recipe. Using your scissors, take out a half dollar-sized chunk from one particular spot, or you can remove several smaller pieces from different spots, such as the maternal side, the fetal side, the cord insertion point, etc.

3. Place placenta pieces, along with half of the orange juice, into your blender.

4. Blend on high for 1-2 minutes.

5. Add remaining orange juice, yogurt, and strawberries

6. Blend on high until well incorporated.

7. Serve in a gorgeous glass with a colorful bendy straw.

Just in case you change your mind.

In Aotearoa New Zealand a lot of people plant a tree on the placenta further tying our soul to the earth from which we come from. It is a Maori tradition that many people have taken on me included. Both my daughter's placenta were planted on my father's farm. I planted trees that feed the birds and the bees. And my husband planted a tree on top of the clothes his mother was wearing when she died.

And just recently a family came back from holiday to find their house burgled both their deep freezer were emptied of meat including both of their children's placenta which they had yet to plant.I hope karma gets the burglers.

We have a lot of birds around here, even when it's in the teens (Northern Kentucky). We get those big flocks of little black birds that look they're dancing in unison in the sky--it's awesome!

A woman I know also did the let the placenta become detached in its own time. So the baby carried a little sack with the placenta in it for a few weeks. I find this a little weird as other animals bite the placenta off and often eat it I think that is a far more natural way bit not sure I could eat it I rather like the planting idea.

I think if I drop the ac compressor I can get it with just a long extension.
It's too damn cold to be busting knuckles today.

I also like the planting idea. I remember cutting the ex-wife's placenta and it was such an odd sensation.

I happened to come across these crazy recipes of placenta eating while surfing the net the other day. Very strange for westerners but not surprising anymore I guess.

Can't say I have a question per se besides middle name. Nice first name pick, by the way, will her middle name go along with it or just be a traditional(named after a family member, etc.) name?

Hi TNMockingbird, you look beautiful today!



Thank you, my dear. You are looking quite lovely yourself.

You may not be pregnant but, I will ask...

Well, I suppose you're right of course.
I just don't think that they have to be sooooo mean and crotchety about it




Hope you are feeling well.

Has anyone asked you about odd food cravings (if you're having any)?
Food is making me nauseous this week as if I am pregnant (that's not possible) so I am just curious.

It will depend on if you have a "natural" birth or C section. All mine were by C section and my wives [ 2 ] really didn't have any bleeding past about 4 - 6 days. My 1st wife had to have one because it was her first child and he was 10 lbs 2 oz!!
I remarried years later, [ hence the age difference in my kids ] and my 2nd son was not turned right, so again, C section. My daughter was also C section, because, once a woman has had one, Drs will give them the option of natural or schedule the date and get it done. Some Drs don't want the woman to strain a body that has scar tissue that may be too weak, so...C section. Neither of my wives were "bedridden" for any length of time, just a little sore and bounced back very quickly.

I honestly wish you luck. Raising kids has been one of the great pleasures and privileges in my life.
I wouldn't have missed it for the world.
