I am always keeping my eyes peeled for easy meals that support fertility and this quick salad pretty much has it all. This one is perfect for women who are struggling with ovulatory infertility including PCOS or weight related issues, for women struggling with endometriosis, and really, for anyone trying to improve their nutritional wellness in order to support a healthy pregnancy.
Of course, it is the simplicity of this salad that first made me want to make it, but it’s the terrific dose of plant-based protein, fibre, folate, iron and healthy fat that seals the deal and makes it an excellent choice for anyone trying to conceive. It really does have it all, and it takes less than ten minutes to prepare.
You can make the “bean salad” part of the recipe ahead, combining all of the ingredients except the spinach and avocado. When you are ready to eat, toss it with spinach and top it with avocado. If you are feeling really hungry, add more avocado or top with raw pumpkin seeds which add even more iron, folate, and fibre, and go well with the other flavours in the salad.
I just had this for lunch with fresh oregano from the garden (yay spring!) Here is the link to the recipe. Enjoy.
