So yesterday I got you to try spinach in your fertility smoothie, which was actually really good right ;). Today we are going to make something decadent and nutrient dense.
Chocolate Oatmeal Bliss
1/8c Oatmeal (dry)
2 Tablespoons Dark chocolate powder
2 Tablespoons Hemp seeds
1 teaspoon Fertilica Maca powder
1 teaspoon Spirulina
1 Date (pitted)
-Put all ingredients in blender and add a small amount of water and begin blending. Add more water and ice cubes (I usually use 4) until consistency is how you like your smoothies. Let this one blend for a little while so it is smooth. Today’s fun ingredients are oatmeal and hemp seeds.
Oatmeal is a great addition to a smoothie as it adds important whole carbohydrates and fiber. This helps the smoothie to stick to you for a while, plus it makes an easy meal, or snack. Rolled oats work great for smoothies.
Hemp seeds are currently one of my favorite foods. They are rich in essential fatty acids, protein, and fiber. I add hemp seeds to my smoothies almost every day because of how nutritious they are as well as how creamy they make the smoothie. You can find hemp seeds at your local health food store or online.
What makes this a “Fertility Smoothie”?
The Maca powder, which is a staple in our fertility smoothies, nourishes the endocrine system (which helps to balance hormones) as well as supplying fantastic energy through the nourishment of the adrenal glands. Spirulina is a nutrient dense green food which helps to supply minerals, protein, and nutrients which may be missing if you do not eat a lot of greens. I like spirulina in smoothies because of its light taste. You can find both of these fertility superfoods at NaturalFertilityShop.com.
Yesterday I received a wonderful testimonial from a customer who had incorporated Maca and Spirulina into her diet. I thought you would enjoy reading it:
I actually did the Fertility cleanse a few months ago and started taking Maca and Spirulina at the same time. This was in anticipation of undergoing the next step in my fertility treatments, IVF.
I am happy to announce that I am currently in my 7th week of pregnancy! This conception occurred with no medical assistance! My husband and I are excited and nervous as we have endured 2 miscarriages which were both in the early stages of pregnancy in the past.
We are taking it day by day and hope to be into our 2nd trimester by the end of August and welcome a new baby into our family by March of 2010.
Thank you for all your helpful information. I’m certain it played a part in our miracle.
Question of the day: When do you drink your smoothies?
