I partnered with my favorite prenatal supplement brand, WeNatal, to develop this delicious, fertility-boosting Roasted Herby Salmon recipe. It’s the perfect protein entree for a nourishing meal that supports your fertility journey and overall health!
Salmon is not only an excellent source of protein but also rich in omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA) that are crucial for hormone production, including estrogen and progesterone. These fatty acids also offer anti-inflammatory benefits, supporting fertility and overall health.
Salmon is one of the few food sources of vitamin D, which is important for hormone balance, fertility, and overall health. Being a low-mercury fish, wild caught salmon is a great choice while trying to conceive or during pregnancy, as limiting exposure to heavy metals like mercury is essential.
This dish is loaded with antioxidants! The salmon, herbs, and lemon juice provide a powerful dose of antioxidants that protect reproductive cells from damage and promote healthy cell growth, supporting your fertility journey.
Pair it perfectly: This delicious salmon can be beautifully paired with roasted asparagus (simply roasted with olive oil, salt, and pepper at the same time as the salmon) and a quinoa salad (quinoa, walnuts, avocado, basil, and arugula) for a complete, nutrient-dense, and fertility-boosting meal!
The term “detox” has been exploited as a way to sell diet programs. But is there some truth to it? Do we need to “detox”? The answer, as I typically say with nutrition, is that it depends.
