Notes:

  • Pomegranate, chocolate, avocado and mango are all traditionally believed to either be great for fertility or a natural aphrodisiac
  • These ingredients, high in fibre, good fats and antioxidants are also great for a healthy cardiovascular system (aka your ticker!)

 

TIPS:

  • Add Greek/natural yogurt or ½ scoop of vanilla protein powder for an extra boost of protein.
  • Add a small handful of oats to boost the soluble fibre content, also great for a healthy heart
  • Swap the dark chocolate for a sprinkle of cacao nibs if you like
