I’ve been really enjoying researching all the lactation friendly superfoods and creating easy recipes with them! As part of my meal prep, I always have roasted sweet potatoes on hand, so this recipe came together in minutes.
Some of my favorite lactation friendly foods include:
- Almonds and almond butter
- Cooked fruit dishes like berry compotes, apple sauce and apple crisp
- Dried fruit such as dates, figs and apricots
- Steamed carrots
- Roasted sweet potatoes
- Raw and Sauteed spinach
- String Beans
- Grains including Oats, Bulgur and Millet
- Flax meal
- Chia pudding
This recipe boasts a bunch of these lactation friendly foods- oats, sweet potato and flax! You can use your favorite non- dairy milk. My personal favorite is Ripple brand Pea Milk, because of its 8 grams of protein per cup.
