    Default Interesting buy at Target (esp for BFing moms!!)

    I bought some organic granola today at Target with blueberries and almonds. It has oatmeal in it of course, which is good for milk supply, but it also had...dum-ta-dah....fenugreek! I almost fell over! LOL!

    Just thought I'd share...

    i think fenugreek is what is used to add maple flavor to items that do not contain maple syrup. it makes your sweat smell like maple syrup, right?

    yeah, fenugreek is the main flavoring for maples syrup and other foods...that granola sounds yummy In order though to take enough fenugreek to increase your supply, you have to be taking enough to make your sweat and pee smell like maple syrup...which is about 1200mg 3x a day!
