Fresh organic vegetables are a wonderful addition to your fertility diet and any fertility cleanse. Choose dark leafy greens, like kale, that have a high chlorophyll content and are replenishing to your entire system.
Cruciferous vegetables, like cabbage, help to metabolize excess estradiol and help the liver to process hormones more effectively, ideally helping to relieve PMS.
Dr Deb Kern introduced me to this amazing salad dressing, simple and packed with healthful anti-inflammatory apple cider vinegar and the omega 3 benefits of flaxseed oil. It is so easy to make and truly delicious on top of any salad! Remember to chew slowly and thoroughly when eating raw vegetables to ensure digestion is optimized. Eating slowly helps to absorb more nutrients for your fertility diet.
