While we’ve been lucky enough to have a lovely taste of Spring weather here in Vancouver lately, I haven’t been fully prepared to give up the warm comfort of winter soups and stews just yet. Comfort food of all kinds can be an important part of a fertility diet in that it can be grounding during times of stress and uncertainty. It’s an added bonus when your comfort food is also full of fertility-promoting properties. Allow me to introduce you to this beautifully flavorful curry dish that covers all your bases. It features high fiber, protein, healthy fats, anti-oxidants, and spices that promote blood flow, aid in digestion, fight inflammation, tone the liver, and help regulate blood sugar. Cumin, turmeric, and black pepper are all used in Ayurveda to balance various infertility conditions such as uterine tumors, fibroids, ovarian cysts, genital tract health, and hormone interactions.
