Mochi Puff with Creamy Yogurt Oatmeal
Mochi is a heavy rice cake made from cooked, pounded sweet brown rice. Mochi is especially good for lactating mothers, as it promotes the production of breast milk. Mochi is found at your local organic and whole food stores and it is located in the refrigerated section.
