Fertility Foods Cookbook Review And Baked Mediterranean Chicken Recipe
We are elated to introduce an incredible book, Fertility Foods Cookbook by Elizabeth Shaw, MS, RDN, and Chef Sara Haas, RDN, LDN. This book is full of over 100 recipes including fabulous foods which promote fertility and conception. Here is our Fertility Foods Cookbook review and Baked Mediterranean Chicken Recipe from the book itself to give you a mini taste of what it has to offer.
First off, the book starts with a description of what Fertility Foods mean and how the power of the food we eat can affect our health and wellness. Next, the book discusses each food group and provides a detailed report of what foods are the best to buy, their portion sizes, how to incorporate them into your weekly routine, and recipe recommendations. I loved this section because it gave me specific guidelines and examples, such as how a whole grain waffle can promote health, comfort, fiber, and energy. The chapter also helped clarify the dairy controversy in regards to fertility and it discussed other important micronutrients for fertility such as folate, calcium, iron, selenium, zinc, and choline. The third chapter provides insight on stress-management (because this also plays a huge role in fertility and the ups and downs of the baby-making roller coaster) and other mind/body aspects.
The second part of the book has all the delicious, mouth-watering recipes. One of my favorites is the Baked Mediterranean Chicken Recipe, which I’m sharing with you today. You will find dishes in every category, such as Breakfast, Appetizers, Sandwiches, Snacks, Salads, Dressings, Soups, Entrees, Side Dishes, and Sweet Treats. These recipes will boost that fertile soul to the max.
The Fertility Foods Cookbook is a wonderful book to have even if you are not thinking of getting pregnant and just want to stay healthy and wholesome. With all the variety of veggies and whole grains, your health will be boosted to a whole new level.
