Yoghurt Ports – Fertility conception diet

These are a delicious easy breakfast to make in advance and set yourself up for the week. They contain the perfect blend of protein, healthy fats and something fresh (fruit = complex carb) and can also be made into a snack size for between meals. Always get an organic natural yoghurt or coconut yoghurt that doesn’t contain ANY added sugar in the ingredient list. If you are used to sweet yoghurts, try preparing these in advance and top with frozen raspberries or fresh passionfruit, which will blend through and sweeten the yoghurt.

Ingredients: MAKES 1 POT

200g (3/4 cup) plain yoghurt

1 TBSP chia seeds

1 TSP vanilla paste

1 TBSP LSA (linseed, sunflower seed and almond meal) or ground flaxseed

Method:

Stir together all the ingredients and leave in the fridge for at least 15mins.

Options:

• Just before serving, add a handful of raspberries and 3- 4 brazil nuts, coarsely chopped.

• Slice a peach, roughly chop 5-6 almonds and 1 TBSP pumpkin seeds.

• Stir in 1 TBSP of shredded coconut and top with sliced banana, 5-6 chopped walnuts or flaked almonds and the grated zest of half an unwaxed (organic) lime.


Simple Chia Pudding

Chia seeds are a great source of fibre, omega 3 and protein. Prepare this in advance for a quick breakfast when you are time poor. 

You can also add any fruit or toppings you like. Nuts and coconut yoghurt added makes for a yummy and nutritious addition.

Chia does absorb more than its weight in liquid, which is why it becomes a pudding consistency when you add the almond milk.

Ingredients:

½ cup chia seeds

¼ tsp cinnamon powder

2 cups almond or coconut milk

½ tsp vanilla extract

¼ cup raw honey or organic maple syrup

Method:

Mix all ingredients in a glass jar or container, shake with the lid on tight and then store in the fridge for the chia seeds to absorb the liquid.

Shake again 5-10 mins after combining so the flavour gets all the way through

You can store this mixture in the fridge for up to 5 days. Each morning just add the fruit and toppings you want.

1 cup walnuts

1 cup almonds

2 tablespoon cacao powder

1 pitted medjool dates

2 tablespoons coconut oil

1/2 cup fine coconut

50g of 70% dark chocolate, melted

Method:

When a friend calls and asks me for a quick and easy chocolate recipe I give them this one. It's super simple and delicious. A perfect gift for when you're visiting friends and hungry family members.

Blend nuts and raw cacao in a processor until they form a fine meal.

Add pitted dates, coconut oil and fine coconut and blend until completely combined.

Press mixture into a small square lined baking tin and place in the freezer to set for an hour.

Once set, remove from the freezer and use a spatula to top with coconut chocolate butter, as much or as little as you'd like. I like a thin coating as it's quite rich.

Slice into small squares and grab whenever you need a healthy chocolate hit!
