The Juna Women podcast is a weekly discussion where I talk to Moms about their health, work, parenting, and all the different ways they’re keeping it together. This is Episode 005, Starting A Business After Having A Baby with Lisa Mastela.

In this episode, Sarah chats with Lisa Mastela, the founder of Bumpin Blends, a subscription delivery service that provides a delicious way to push your pregnancy and postpartum symptoms aside and get the nutrients you and your baby need.

 




Lisa’s Story

When registered dietician Lisa Mastela was pregnant, she found smoothies a great way to get in all the nutrients both she and her baby needed.

But after 10 stitches from chopping carrots, a countertop stained with wild blueberries, and an entire bag of chia seeds spilling all over the floor (we shudder at the thought), Lisa quickly learned there was a dark side to all that food prep that goes along with regular smoothie consumption.

Not to mention how important it was that all of her mixing and measuring resulted in an out-of-this-world flavor when all she really wanted to eat was mac ‘n cheese and mint chip ice cream.

Her solution? Bumpin Blends: Custom superfood smoothie blends based on your individual symptoms and needs, delivered straight to your door. No chopping, prepping, or measuring–just add the frozen smoothie cubes to your blender with a little liquid and enjoy.

As soon as you order, a nutritionist will text you to gather all relevant deets (your due date or baby’s age and taste preferences) to be sure your smoothies are a perfect fit.

As a mother and now CEO to a fast-growing company, we were fortunate to hear Lisa’s story about her pregnancy, her labor, and what it’s like to be the CEO at work and a Mama and Wife at home.
