We love it for a few very important reasons:
- There’s very little cooking required (which we know also tends to mean less cleaning too… which is always a winner)
- It’s quick and simple which makes it perfect for those of us who are pushed for time, or who are too knackered at the end of the day to be bothered with getting too complicated.
- It’s perfect for those with gluten, dairy or egg intolerances and it’s incredibly delicious and nutritious!
Here are the all important 5 ingredients needed and how they go such a long to promoting uterus and overall health. That’s right, ladies. Just 5 ingredients - in whatever quantities you like!
Salmon - This steamed star of the show is known as an oily fish (along with sardines, herring and mackerel) because it’s packed with omega-3 fatty acids - an incredibly versatile set of nutrients necessary for overall health. We recommend steaming as it helps to retain the succulent texture of the fish and protects from drying out or over cooking in the fry pan or oven.
Around 40% of fatty acids in brain cells are made of DHA (one of the principle omega 3 fatty acids found in oily fish) which research shows helps to prevent Alzheimer's. Omega 3 fatty acids also promote blood flow to the uterus, an all important element to promoting and helps to regulate hormones and mood.
Avocado - Avocado is not only delicious and packed with healthy antioxidant vitamin E, it also contains an array of ingredients that are important for uterus health and fertility in general. It also contains tryptophan which creates the feel-good hormone serotonin… a guaranteed scientific mood booster! It was even considered the Aztec’s “fertility fruit”!
Avocado has high amounts of folic acid, a diverse range of vitamins, healthy fats and fibre - helping you to feel satiated for longer. We are huge fans of this delicious ingredient - read more about its incredible health benefits here: https://liverpoolst.com.au/blogs/word-on-the-street/avocado-a-nutrition-powerhouse
Salad Leaves - folic acid dense and a nutritious preventative against conditions like vaginitis and potentially even uterine fibroids- fresh and luscious leafy greens are an important addition to any salad. If you choose spinach amongst your leafy greens, these are a valuable source of iron, which serves to keep our blood well oxygenated and our uterus glowing with health!
Pine nuts - contain an array of nutrients that help boost energy, including monounsaturated fat, protein and iron. They are also a good source of magnesium and zinc - helping our overall immunity and wellbeing…. Including our uterus!
Lemon - Packed to the rafters with vitamin c (and a very tasty addition to the salmon)- lemon is an invaluable addition to this salad. Vitamin C has been shown to provide a host of female-related and uterus health benefits, from assisting with iron absorption, to reducing heavy bleeding as well as providing support for managing endometriosis and uterine fibroids.
