I have helped so many women to get pregnant – women that have been told they are infertile, who have been told IVF is their only option, who are in their 40s and think a baby would be more than a miracle for them – simply by advising on how to eat the right foods at the right times to boost fertility and increase the chance of conceiving. I have done this by sharing my fertility recipes, utilizing the foods I know provide the nutrients your body needs to make hormones, process hormones and eliminate excess hormones – leading you to healthy consistent ovulation and strong fertility.
I myself conceived at the age of 37, despite being told in my 20s that, because of PCOS, I was unlikely to conceive naturally. The FLO Living protocol I created fixes the hormonal imbalances behind many issues of infertility. When a woman comes to me wanting to get pregnant I get her started on the protocol, and I recommend she adds in specific fertility-boosting superfoods.
A recipe to increase your fertility
I want to share with you here one of the fertility recipes I always pass along to my clients. As you know, I like to keep cooking super simple and easy and this recipe is no different. Without a whole lot of effort, you can make yourself a fertility recipe that works for lunch, a snack, or even as a fancy dinner party appetizer.
The endive in this recipe contains a compound that improves cervical health. The kale and bok choy contain calcium and magnesium, which help your body to manufacture and utilize estrogen and progesterone – creating hormonal balance. Turmeric helps improve blood flow to your ovaries. Smoked salmon contains omega 3 fatty acids that help with conception. It’s the perfect recipe for a belly ready to conceive. Of course, you can also eat each ingredient on its own to increase fertility.

A fertility recipe for baby-making
Baby Making Bites
6 oz smoked salmon
2 stalks kale and 1 baby bok choy sliced into ribbons
1 bunch endive, leaves separated
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 T olive oil
lemon juice (to taste)
sea salt (to taste)
Toss kale ribbons and bok choy ribbons in a bowl with juice from 1 lemon and sprinkle with 1 tsp turmeric and ½ tsp sea salt. Allow this mixture to sit for a few hours, or even overnight to allow the lemon and salt to soften the greens. Before serving, toss with a drizzle of olive oil.
In each leaf of endive, place a scoop of greens and top with a strip of smoked salmon.
This is a bite. Good enough to serve at parties even if you are not trying to get pregnant!
