I am in love with Cooking for Fertility from both a professional and a personal standpoint.
I’ll talk professional first – as an acupuncturist specializing in fertility, this book is indispensable. I make sure that all of my fertility patients have this book. Kathryn really excels at giving a variety of easy-to-make, insanely delicious recipes. With each recipe there is a paragraph explaining the energetics of the dish from a Chinese Medicine standpoint, so patients are able to learn about what nourishes their specific imbalances. I have also recommended the cookbook to non-fertility patients who are interested in eating better.
Eating healthily should not make you feel like you are lacking in flavors or treats. Kathryn provides so many delicious indulgences – that are actually good for you!
As for personal, I love using these recipes in my kitchen. The Pumpkin Pesto is ridiculous – no one I make it for ever guesses it’s vegan – and has kale in it! The Fertile Soul cookies are a yummy treat. I could go on and on about my favorite recipes, but I’ll let you find some for yourself.
