This is one of those recipes that seems fancier than it actually is. If you have any doubts about your ability to create a rich, creamy, dairy-free, hormone balancing mushroom soup at home, please allow me to help put those doubts to rest. Do you have a blender? A stove? An oven? An hour to spare? You can do this. And I predict you'll be glad you did. The ingredients are simple, wholesome and inexpensive, yet it all comes together as deeply flavourful and satisfying. Now, I k
This is one of those recipes that I make all the time, but I can't manage to get a decent photo of so haven't shared with you yet. Well folks, I'm settling for this mediocre-at-best pic (have I mentioned I am not a perfectionist?) so I can finally bring you this IMPORTANT recipe for SALMON CAKES ;) Wild Pacific Salmon is widely considered a fertility food all-star for several reasons, which I'll get to below, but the problem that many of my clients face is that it can be diff
Beets are one of my favourite fertility foods for so many reasons. They're high in boron, an important mineral for the production of sex hormones and, appropriately, in ancient Roman times beet juice was considered an aphrodisiac. Another important mineral for fertility and pregnancy is iron, which beets are literally bursting with. Keeping the liver in top working condition should be a priority for those trying to conceive, as it performs HUNDREDS of essential functions in t
You know those beautiful "Buddha Bowls" you see all over Instagram looking real fancy? Well, I'm here to tell you that with a little planning ahead, you too can have fancy lunch bowls all week long, even if it's in a not-so-fancy tupperware container in the lunchroom at work (rather than this gorgeous pottery bowl hand-made by my mom). I gave a talk at Vancouver's first ever Fertility & Adoption Expo this past weekend (thanks to everyone who came out!) and I emphasized that o
Marinated grain salads like this one are kind of like smoothies. Say what?! Hear me out. Smoothies are a quick and convenient way to pack in a LOT of nutrition at once, right? Leafy greens, flax, chia, hemp, maca, avocado, algaes, matcha powder, and super berries are popular boosters in many smoothie recipes. Although the chopping and cooking involved in grain salad-making isn’t nearly as quick as whipping up a smoothie, once you’ve invested the time, you have super healthy m
I casually posted a picture of my dinner on Instagram & Facebook last night without too much thought. Thanks to all the interest, I felt pressure to get the recipe up asap! I don't have too much to say about this simple, hearty soup other than that it's probably the quickest home made meal I've got in my bag of tricks. And I make it when my family is sniffly and achy and coughing up a storm. It's a light dinner, but suuuuuper flavourful and satisfying. You could add some left
These Rainbow Rice Bowls are so simple, quick, delicious, and beautiful! And almost every ingredient is a fertility-boosting superstar. The many colours indicate a wide variety of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and phytonutrients including beta-carotene, calcium, vitamin C, vitamin K, folate, and lycopene, to name just a few. The high fiber content of these selected vegetables also assists in binding to excess estrogen and cholesterol in the body and safely removing them.
