30 day Fertility Diet Challenge

There are a million things to take into consideration on the journey to conception. In my mind, one of the most important is a healthy food lifestyle.

It’s important that we make the right food choices along the way, and sometimes we need to take the time to clear out some of the litter and reset our bodies. This is one of those times.

The foods, smoothies, fruits and methods outlined in the challenge can, and should, become part of your daily lifestyle (only to be halted when pregnant or nursing).

This challenge is not meant to work miracles-only God can perform those. However, you can expect to lose some weight, and in general, be healthy. Who knows, you might even be pleasantly surprised!

In the next couple of days, I will post some basic rules for the challenge. I know it’s hard to follow a set of rules for any period of time, but it will be worth it in the end.

Now, I’m posting the full shopping list for the 30 days. If it is not on the list, or not in the recipes which will be posted, please do not eat it, at least for 30 days. Exceptions to this rule are herbs and fertility aids like royal jelly, blackstrap molasses, etc.

Shopping List for the 30DFC

Lemons
Grapefruit
Apples
Eggplant /garden eggs
Tomatoes
Sweet potatoes
Garlic
Ginger
Chicken
Tilapia or Mackerel
Biscuit bones or Cow tail
Cinnamon (bonus if you can get sticks)
Honey
Mustard seeds
Unripe plantains
Tiger nuts (only for men)
Watermelon
Apple Cider Vinegar
Oats
Beans
Eggs
Pumpkin
Yam
Carrots
Cabbage
Coconut milk
Milk
Basil (nchanwu/efirin)
Okro
Uziza leaves
Pineapple (to be used 1-5 dpo)
Brown rice (if you can’t find brown, eat half the quantity in white rice and double the serving of salad or greens)
Ugu
Amaranth leaves (green)
Cucumber
Olive oil
Plantain flour
Whole wheat flour

To make fufu for soup: grind some oats. Mix 6 cups of oat flour with 4 cups of plantain flour and 2 cups of wheat flour. Use 1 cup of mixture per person.

Bonus:if you can find mint and parsley, that would be fine. If not, no problem.

I know this is quite a list, I also know it’s well worth the effort.
May God bless our efforts.

Hi, my name is Chidinma. I’ve been happily married for 4+ years (actually almost 6 years now), and my husband and I have been trying to have our own children for almost all the time we’ve been married, with no success…yet. We haven’t lost hope (far from it), and we believe it will happen very soon.
