  • "Barley + Oats is the perfect solution...[it] helped give my body the fuel it needs so I can be a more present mom, wife, friend, and worker."
    Nutritionist

    Nikki Ostrower, Founder, NAO Nutrition

    “What I learned most of all is that it really does take a TRIBE to raise a kid so above all, learn to ask for and accept help where you can get it. I’m a nutritionist, and I love to cook nourishing meals, however, who has time to cook with a newborn? Eating nutrient-dense meals is paramount to healing postpartum, and that’s why Barley + Oats is the perfect solution. The meals are 100% fresh, delicious and are the exact foods that the body needs to recover—mind, body, and spirit. Barley + Oats meals helped to give my body the fuel it needs so I can be a more present mom, wife, friend, and worker. I’m eternally grateful for services that make my life so much easier, while I get to enjoy every bite in the process.”

    Doulas

    Ash Spivak + Natalia Hailes, Founders, Brilliant Bodies

    “We can’t say enough about how much we love Barley + Oats. The food is really well-thought-out and SO delicious. And while it is an extremely important service for brand new moms, it’s also wonderful for the prenatal period, during labor (drink the broths!), and for non-mamas, too! We recommend Barley + Oats to each and every one of our clients!”

  • "This is next-level food that created an experience of health, support, and positivity. Now that's the right way to begin the motherhood experience."
    Working Mama

    Randi Zinn, Founder, Beyond Mom

    “When my second child arrived, I knew how hard it would be to nourish myself. I learned it the last time, plus I had an older child to care for! I also knew how integral my nourishment was when it came to productive nursing, healthy recovery and overall state of mind! Barley + Oats arrived and made those first weeks so much better than I’d experienced the first time. A scoop of delicious oatmeal in the morning. Risotto in the afternoon. A cookie as a snack. Soup for dinner. And everything warming, wholesome and so comforting. This is next-level food that created an experience of health, support, and positivity. Now that’s the right way to begin the motherhood experience (again). Thanks Ashly and Barley + Oats!”
