Home Fertile Kitchen Fertility Foods, Fertility Salad

fertility salad


I had daily salads when I was trying to conceive. Not only are they great for your overall health, but there a number of vegetables that can enhance fertility by providing antioxidants, vitamins, fiber and other hormone regulating nutrients. They are also quick and easy to make because they don't require cooking. Read more:

Fertility Greek Coleslaw

Cut a head of purple (red) cabbage in half or thirds immediately before eating (don't cut ahead of time because this may damage some nutritional value - refrigerate the other half/third for left overs for use later)
Use a cheese shredder and shred the coleslaw as finely as possible (this make digestion a littler easier)
Add a little salt and pepper to taste
Drizzle a little olive oil on the coleslaw
Add vinegar or a vinagrette spritzer (most of these are very low in calories)

Dice a small tomato and add to the coleslaw
Add about 5 greek olives
Mix well and enjoy!

Fertility Salad Recipe

Start with red (purple) cabbage. This is a great hormone regulator because it is loaded with phytoestrogens and antioxidants. Cut it in half and save the rest for later. Shred about 1 cup with a cheese shredder as finely as possible. Raw cabbage can be a little hard to digest, so if it is shredded finely, it will help.

Cut up about 1/3 of a large cucumber. Cucumbers (especially the seeds) are considered a fertility enhancer in women.

Peel a ripe avacado, cut in half and discard the pit. Cut of the avacado and save the rest for later. Avacados are a great source of the good fats and they can help enhance progesterone production and keep the balance between estrogen and progesterone.

Cut a tomato in half and cut into cube size pieces. Tomatoes are a good source of lycopene which can reduce inflammation and help with endometriosis.

Add about 1 tbs of extra virgin olive oil (a great source of the good fats)

Add some balsamic vinegar if desired

Add salt and pepper to taste.
