Fertility Superfoods

Fertility Superfoods .  These natural foods are charged with antioxidants, vitality and seasonal health to support your fertility journey.

I refer to this  “vitality” as Life Force or “prana”  – the living energy that encourages growth and repair.

Some of you may  follow me on social media including you tube for my monthly #fertilityinspiration. If  if you  do you know  I sing the praises of  following seasonal eating using nutritional therapy for your fertility health. This month  I have included some delicious recipes which include some of the fertility superfoods  recommended in the creation guidance cards  to support your Fertility Journey.

Fertility Superfoods 1:  kefir

A natural product which, through fermentation, offers a wealth of good bacteria not only for your fertility but  the “good bacteria” within kefir is essential to maintain a healthy digestive tract and vaginal microbome too.

A daily intake of kefir has been proved to support bone mas;  is a good source of nutrients. The fermentation process of kefir results in a very low-lactose dairy drink; supports blood glucose balance; may help with reduction of allergies and skin disorders, eases various digestive conditions including bloating and irritable bowel symptoms, supports integrity of the intestinal lining and fabulous immune support.

Kefir is a source of numerous strains of probiotic bacteria, and these may include the following

Lactobacillus acidophillus Lactobacillus brevis
Lactobacillus delbreuckii Lactobacillus fermentum
Lactobacillus kefirgranum Lactobacillus kefiranofaciens
Lactobacillus kefiri
Lactococcus lactis cremoris Lactococcus lactic biovar diacetylactis
Leunostoc mesenteroids cremoris Leuconostoc mesenteroids ssp. mesenteroids
Streptococcus thermophilus

Kefir Smoothie: For the best kefir then I recommend you make your own. Simply purchase some kefir granules and mix with either  filtered water, coconut water, plant/nut milk or animal milk and leave overnight to ferment.  However, if you don’t have the time for that then you can buy it at most health food shops and at some supermarkets.  Like everything – quality is essential as many branded forms of kefir are high in sugar.

Mix kefir milk with a banana, a teaspoon of honey or Chywanaprash, 1 dessertspoon ground flaxseeds  and some  coconut oil  – blitz in the smoothie maker or blender to make a healthy breakfast.

 

Fertility Superfoods are potent hormone support and adaptogens (meaning they help your endocrine system).  There isn’t time to explain their full reasoning here but download  The Creation Fertility Guide To The Natural Super Foods for more information or scroll down to some other links to my blog articles.  Today, I simply offer  some delicious recipes for you make whilst working with the  Creation Fertility Toolkit

Fertility Superfood 2. Fertility Truffles

fertility truffles4 heated dessertspoons ground almonds

1 tsp spirulina powder, 1 dessertspoon ground flaxseeds, 1-2 tbsp clear honey or Manuka honey

1 teaspoon rose water essence or vanilla essence, 1 teaspoon Cinnamon powder , for rolling the truffles in

In a bowl mix the almonds and the spirulina, then fold in the honey. Add the water until it turns into a paste. Shape into small balls, finally rolling the truffles in the cinnamon, to make a home-made treat.

This basic recipe can be made in many different formats I often add a teaspoon of raw cocao powder  in place of the  spirulina and add some grated ginger.  But experiment –   use the fertility superfoods maca, cocoa, ginger root, lime, use ground pecans, walnuts, brazils or coconut instead of the almonds or replace with pea protein.  Just be aware you may add a little more fluid to the mixture to get the right consistency!
