A great source of fiber, healthy whole grain carbohydrates such as brown rice help keep your energy levels up, your blood sugar level in check and provide your body with the calories needed to fuel milk production. Soak and thoroughly rinse the rice grains before cooking to get rid of excess starch. Incorporate brown rice into salads, Asian-style stir-fries, pilafs, savory congees, and more. Likewise, try roasted red bell peppers stuffed with brown rice, herbs, and ground chicken for a delicious, Vitamin C-packed snack.
