Here at The Fertility Circle we’re definitely partial to a good bit of cake. We know it’s important not to have too much sugar so we’ve chosen desserts that use mostly natural sugars and have lots of other ingredients that are great for fertility including lots of yummy fruits and nuts. Oh and this is dessert so chocolate features too of course!
Of course, as we always say, 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.

Why is it good for fertility? Strawberries are rich in antioxidants and also high in vitamin C, folate (the natural form of folic acid) and fibre. Add in nuts for some healthy protein and fat plus oats (a good source of B vitamins, vitamin E, magnesium, zinc, selenium and fibre) and you have a healthy and filling pud.
You can switch out the strawberries for any other fruits depending on the season and this is still just as yummy. Get the recipe here

Why is it good for fertility? Chia really is a super food – can you believe it contains 8 times more omega-3 than salmon and more calcium than dairy. It’s also high in iron, vitamin c, potassium and antioxidants and contains all 9 essential amino acids so they really are worth incorporating into your diet.
Extra points here for being vegan and gluten free. Plus, get ahead of the game by making up the night before! Get the recipe here
Why is it good for fertility? We’re not so sure about the whole idea of eating pineapple core for 5 days to support implantation but go for it if you fancy it! Even if this is an urban myth, pineapple does contain heaps of vitamin C as well as nutrients that support digestion and contain anti-inflammatory properties.
We first tried pineapple on the BBQ on holiday and we haven’t gone back since. This is simply the most delicious way to eat it. Get the recipe here
