Black Walnut
Chickweed
Herb Robert (Geranium robertianum)
Lemon Balm
Oregano
Parsley (Petroselinum crispum)
Peppermint (Mentha piperita)/Menthol
Periwinkle Herb (Vinca minor)
Sage (Salvia officinalis)
Sorrel (Rumex acetosa)
Spearmint
Thyme
Yarrow

From kellymom.com. In normal amounts in cooking they'll only cause a slight dip in supply if anything.

...and I would actually suspect that whether or not they have an impact on supply is highly personal. Somewhat along the lines of oatmeal. For some people it's a boon and for others it doesn't seem to help.

I took oil of oregano in large doses when I was sick and it didn't hurt my supply, I think it's all relative to how sensitive you are.

I have never eaten a food that has decreased my supply. I think the above mentioned food are only going to affect people with a low supply when they are taken in high doses.
