    Pulling Down the Moon Rice Protein Shake

    A fertility-friendly diet is nutrient dense.  Put another way, good fertility nutrition means eschewing empty calories and choosing foods that pack a nutritional wallop.   This can be particularly challenging in the morning when we're pressed for time, and later in the afternoon, when our body is craving something sweet to pick us up and carry us through the rest of the day.  These are times when we are particularly vulnerable to the caffeine and sugar rush provided by treats in the coffee shop and/or the vending machine. 

    Enter the smoothie.  Like the "salvage stew" that many of our moms created out of the produce drawer, a smoothie is a place where we can chuck in lots of nutritious ingredients, press a button and, presto!  A satisfying treat that is quick, nourishing and satisfying.  Our delicious Rice Protein Shake is a hypoallergenic rice protein medical food that provides a complete source of protein that is easy to digest and delicious and makes a great addition to smoothies.


    Our Pulling Down the Moon nutritionists have created some smoothie recipes that are not only nutritious, they are filled with nutrients that support fertility.  The recipes below experiment with almond milk and coconut water as the smoothie base.  To add extra nutrient punch to these shakes, we suggest add-ins like Probiotic Powder and antioxidant and fiber-rich organic PhytoNutrient Powder.  Please note, too, that these smoothies do not use crushed ice.  According to Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda, a fertility diet does not emphasize cold foods.
