Split Pea Hummus with Coconut Naan Bread

Hummus is such a simple thing to make that you could easily prepare it at home, and it also tastes much better than the shop bought options mainly due to the freshness of the ingredients. We’ve gone for a slightly different twist with this hummus dish and used split peas instead of chickpeas. It makes 6 coconut naans and a couple of pots full of delicious split pea hummus.

Spinach - Strawberry Smoothie

Here’s another healthy breakfast recipe that we’ve created for Fertility Road magazine. For those that are short on time in the morning, this quick and simple smoothie recipe is the perfect fertility boosting breakfast option. Citrus fruits like oranges are one of the best sources of vitamin C, which is vital to your fertility-enhancing diet. They also contain potassium, calcium, folate and B vitamins, which are all important nutrients in the conception process and can help you get pregnant by regulating ovulation. Strawberries are also loaded with vitamin C and folate, and are good at protecting eggs from damage and aging due to their high levels of antioxidants. They have also been linked to naturally increasing a woman’s libido. Spinach is high in folate, which has been shown to improve ovulation.

Wholemeal Spelt Bread

There’s nothing quite like warm, fresh out-of-the-oven, home baked bread is there? And this super-simple recipe is something for the whole family to enjoy. It’s a basic recipe, for bakers at any level, so there’s no excuse not to try it. It really is the simplest bread recipe you could make, you do need to be patient whilst waiting for the dough to rise, but there’s nothing to it at all, it’s almost impossible to get wrong. Whilst you’re waiting for the bread to rise, you can use the time wisely too to prepare something else. This delicious lentil soup recipe is my favourite soup to dip the bread in, but you could also try making other accompaniments like: almond butter, strawberry jam, or lemon curd, which all taste great spread on top of a slice, and make a fantastic healthy snack. Spelt has a delicious nutty flavour too and has less gluten than other flours so it’s easier to digest (it’s not completely gluten-free though). If you’re looking to make an easy, homemade and healthy loaf of bread, that’s also cheap to make, then this is the recipe for you. Hope you like it!

We like to make these when we have people over for dinner as they can be made in advance and kept in the fridge until serving time. Hope you enjoy them!

Salmon - Broccoli Frittata

Here’s another healthy and delicious recipe that we’ve developed for Fertility Road magazine. This simple frittata recipe is jam packed with nutrition and contains so many nutrients, which are important for conception. Eggs are such a great source of protein and iron (which are both really important nutrients for fertility). In addition they are also a fantastic source of vitamin D. Women who struggle with fertility often suffer from a deficiency in vitamin D. Broccoli is a good source of vitamin C, folate, calcium, iron, zinc and fibre. Vitamin C is particularly important for improving sperm quality in men and it also helps reduce the chance of miscarriage and chromosomal problems for women. Salmon is another great protein source and is rich in so many nutrients but particularly omega-3 fatty acids, which are proven to regulate blood flow to the reproductive organs.
