Milk Producing Veggie Jasmine Rice Stir Fry

 

Eating certain veggies like bitter greens and cruciferous vegetables while breastfeeding can cause a lot of bloat for the baby. Their stomachs are still developing and certain foods can be a bit harsh and make them insanely gassy (insert Elanor – she’s so sensitive to everything). I’ve found that this particular vegetable mix (a little bit of white onion, zucchini, mushrooms, carrots and yellow squash) are pretty neutral in the baby’s system and less likely to cause any irritation in their little bodies. Same goes for the white jasmine rice over brown rice for me personally. Everything at this stage is trial and error so I added a little soy sauce in to see if it would bother her and it was totally fine. I swear the second you have your last bite – your breasts are filled with milk. And…for those who aren’t breastfeeding, your breasts literally grow with each bite. Jkjk… I couldn’t help myself :/

    Hi Melissa! How much rice do you recommend using/how many servings does this recipe yield?

      Hi Caroline! It all depends how hungry I am, honestly! Hahaha! I also like to make extra so that I can have it on hand to reheat on the stove real quick! 🙂
