Fertility Smoothie Challenge Day #9

Fertility Smoothie Challenge Day #9

One of the main components of a healthy fertility diet is to include as many fresh fruits and vegetables that you can on a daily basis. As I mentioned at the beginning of this challenge:

“When it comes to boosting fertility and making the lifestyle changes that make a BIG difference it is the steps you take on a daily basis, every day, that make the biggest impact. This is how everyday decisions can add up to something amazing.”

So, today’s smoothie is a way to get superb nutrition in a fast, delicious and super easy way. This recipe is actually more of a fertility soup than it is a smoothie. And I apologize ahead of time for making a smoothie that includes ingredients that were not listed at the beginning of the challenge, but hey, what fun would smoothies be if we followed all of the “rules” 😉 ?

This soup was first created by a woman named Ann Wigmore who helped thousands of people with their health through this soup and other healing foods. I have this for lunch a couple of times a week and have made it different every time. Also remember you can try different ingredients in your soups.

Serves 1

sprouts

Energy Soup

2 handfuls of greens (spinach, arugula, romaine, etc.)
1 handful of sprouts (mung, lentil, green pea etc.)
1/2 an avocado
1/2-1 apple (depending on how sweet you like it)
2T dulse
2T Hemp seeds or pine nuts
Water

-Add all ingredients to the blender and blend. Add water as needed. The finished consistency when it is ready is a smooth soup. Pour into a bowl and eat with a spoon. Add salt and pepper as needed.

What makes this a “Fertility Soup”?
While there are no specific fertility superfoods in this soup, the nutrients and nutrition you are getting from the soup helps the body to operate at optimal health. All kinds of health issues have been reversed by people eating energy soup frequently. In addition, the iodine from the dulse nourishes the thyroid which is an important gland involved in hormone balance.

Question of the day: Did you try the Energy Soup? Did you like it?
