Fertility Foodie: brunch o'clock

Fertility Foodie: brunch o'clock

Frankly, it's always brunch o'clock for us. We think it's the best meal of the day. We've curated a selection of delicious brunch recipes to enjoy with friends and family over a long, lazy weekend morning. As you'd expect, eggs feature heavily but we've also got something for any vegans amongst us and for those with a sweet tooth as well. Enjoy.

Of course, the most important thing for fertility is having a healthy, varied and balanced diet and lifestyle. We don't prescribe certain superfoods that will cure all your fertility issues but we've chosen recipes that are yummy, good for us and contain ingredients that have fertility-boosting properties.

Turkish eggs

By Peter Gordon

 

Why is it good for fertility? Well eggs of course - omega-3s, vitamins B12 and E and choline (which may help reduce the risk of birth defects). Add full-fat Greek yoghurt (which some studies have shown to reduce ovulation problems) to the mix and you're really upping the fertility-boosting benefits.

We've eaten this recipe in Peter Gordon's Kopapa restaurant in London and it is simply delicious. Get the recipe here

 

Black bean and tofu scramble

By Anna Jones for The Guardian

 

Why is it good for fertility? Black beans are a great source of plant-based protein and fibre. They also contain folate for conception and healthy embryos.

If you fancy a break from the eggs then give this a try - even the meat-eaters will enjoy it.  Choose a high quality tofu - they are not all created the same. Get the recipe here

 

Turmeric dal baked eggs

By Anna Jones for The Guardian

 

Why is it good for fertility? Eggs again of course for all those vitamins, omega-3s and choline. Add in greens (a source of folate - the natural form of folic acid) and lentils (good for male and female fertility) and you have a perfectly balanced brekkie.

Having spent a fair bit of time in India, we love Indian food and eggs and dhal in the morning is such a delicious and creamy mash up. Get the recipe here

 

Vegan vanilla blueberry buckwheat pancakes

By Oh She Glows

 

Why is it good for fertility? Blueberries are high in vitamin C, folate, fibre and anti-oxidants so have great fertility-boosting properties.

Sometimes we just crave something sweet in the morning and you can't beat a big stack of pancakes. These ones are vegan, gluten-free and made with natural sugars so you indulge away. Get the recipe here
