Recipe: Chinese Chicken Salad And Two Sweet Treats To Boost Your Fertility

February 28, 2019

As part of our two-day summit The Fertility Life Cycle: From Prenatal Care to Postnatal Health, our San Francisco health coach Brittany Forman led an interactive cooking workshop. On the menu was Chinese Chicken Salad, Cherry-Lemon Coconut Parfaits, and “Chocolate Chip” Cookie Dough Balls; needless to say, it was a delicious evening!

Brittany’s Chinese Chicken Salad makes for a great lunch or dinner, and is a crowd-pleaser. The protein from the chicken keeps you full and fueled while the two varieties of cabbage are full of sulfur which supports the body’s ability to detox excess hormones, a process that is essential for fertility. On the sweet side, the parfaits (which also make for a healthy but indulgent breakfast) contain chia seeds which are high in omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3’s are important for the health of both mother and baby. To keep everything in check, the cookie dough balls three macronutrients: fat, fiber, and protein, a combination that balances blood sugar. High blood sugar levels during pregnancy can result in Gestational diabetes, and will increase your baby’s susceptibility to developing diabetes later in life. For women trying to conceive, a blood sugar imbalance can affect their overall hormonal balance, which can impact fertility.

No matter where you are in your fertility life cycle, your body and tastebuds will thank you for making these three dishes!
