The hot topic these days is foods that do more than just nourish your body. Antioxidants, prebiotics, probiotics--all are in the news. Through the ages, certain foods and herbs have been promoted to new mothers to increase their milk supplies. These foods and herbs, called galactogogues, likely increase milk production by increasing prolactin or oxytocin to initiate the breastmilk letdown reflex and aid in breastmilk ejection. Pharmacist Frank Nice and his wife, Myung Hee, have pulled together more than 200 recipes featuring major and minor galactogogues in this cookbook. Dr. Nice includes dosage, uses, and cautions about each of the galactogogues. They have included many old family favorites passed down from their Polish and Korean ancestors. Some recipes include unusual ingredients--Stinging Nettle Pesto with Ravioli, Corn Bread with Red Clover Blossoms, Hot Chocolate Mousse with Marshmallow Root Fluff. Others have ingredients that are quite common--Pineapple Raisin Oat Bran Muffin, Sauteed Brussels Sprouts with Garlic and Olive Oil, Avocado Shrimp Salad, Chicken Tacos. All have been taste-tested and confirmed to be delicious! If you are a new mom struggling with milk supply or if you just want to insure that your milk supply stays strong, try some of these recipes. Even if you aren't breastfeeding, the recipes in this cookbook are worth trying!
