Recipes For The Fruitful Home by Dreamsinbc(f): 8:15pm On Oct 17, 2013
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! Note: if you don't want to lose weight, reduce the amount of oatmeal you eat on the challenge. Have one more helping of one meal each day.

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.

@Bcolah, I think the only thing you should buy in batches is the unripe plantain and banana. I will post a menu table tomorrow. You can figure out when to buy them as we go along. Every other thing can keep. For the vegetables, wrap them well in newspaper and keep in the fridge.

MamaT of all nations...haba, peppersoup full ground na. No worry. If you are on shake off, bsm, etc, pls continue. Nothing spoil at all.

@wannabeamum, feel free to get canned coconut milk. Just dilute small. If it's full fat, mix with one cup of water and measure from it.

Re: Recipes For The Fruitful Home by Nobody: 12:30am On Oct 18, 2013
@twingirls
I think she means pumpkin leaf aka Ugu leaf
Re: Recipes For The Fruitful Home by Nobody: 5:41am On Oct 18, 2013
@Dreams pls U didnt specify the cup size for measuring the oats, wheat and plantain flour for the fufu. I remember you also said sometin abt a scale for measuring food, pls post a pix if possible. Already sent someone to get me my Braggs (ACV) from Healthplus in Eko. Kai!!! But I hate brown rice sha, my mama dey always chop am with a sad face cry d tin no sweet at all grin But for the mara wen dey ground I can chop stone self lipsrsealed @Wannabeamum, you will definitely be a mum, abeg hide that password wella, so dat you go fit use am announce Ur BFP. Mils you.
Re: Recipes For The Fruitful Home by Dreamsinbc(f): 6:14am On Oct 18, 2013
@Salsera, no, I mean the pumpkin itself. I listed ugu seperately.
@twingirls, I'm sure you've seen it in the market, but always overlook it.
You can preserve uziza leaves by wrapping tightly in newspaper. Preserve carrots by peeling and covering in water in the fridge (change the water daily), eggplants are preserved in the fridge as well. Yes, you can use spinach in place of the amaranth, but I think amaranth is really easy to find (you know the vegetable they call green)
@mamat, u no lie. Brown rice is not sooo tasty, because of the high fibre content, but with the recipes I have planned, the taste won't be an issue (hopefully, lol) Let me look for pictures of the food scale I mean, and will show you pictures of the measuring cups I'm talking about. They come in a set, usually ranging from 1 teaspoon to 1 cup. It's 800 here, and it's a must for every kitchen.

The scale is to weigh meat, and vegetables but I'm sure that you can also use the size of your hand to measure the amount. I've seen a chart like that before. Will look for it and post it with pictures of the pumpkin, scale and cups.

I'll send you one of the oat recipes, so you can try it out and see if he still dislikes it. It will never be boring oats alone (too tiring). For you, leave out the milk. Just buy coconut milk and make milk from almonds. You can even make rice milk. Don't worry, there's something for everybody!
Re: Recipes For The Fruitful Home by Dreamsinbc(f): 7:14am On Oct 18, 2013
Pumpkin...please don't throw the seeds away. They make a very yummy and healthy snack

May God bless your effort
Re: Recipes For The Fruitful Home by Nobody: 8:05am On Oct 18, 2013
@dreams, welldone, where can one get the measuring spoons? For the scale I got mine from deprince supermarket ( gbagada or along olowora(magodo Isheri)) it's N1,000.

Another question please, will the menu time table be based according to cycle days? Eg certain foods to eat during af, before ovulation and after ovulation?

Thanks and God Bless you

@mum2be, y so blue?

@all, I've moved to www.thefruitfulkitchen.
My email address is fruitfulkitchen@gmail.com

Labella, thanks for following. I found the Almond oil in the freezer section, on those shelves above the freezer. Yesterday, I saw it in Grand Square too, the oil section

You can get parsley in a salad market in Kado Estate. Enter Kado from the express road to life camp. It's on the right. It's very easy to miss if you aren't looking.

@Hopeful, yes dear, there are some recipes for different cycle times. I will indicate as I post.
You can get the cups at any cake/baking shop
