Fertility & Maternity Recipes

Fertility Recipe

Have you ever heard of a nutrient called choline? Not really? Well, it is an important nutrient in your preconception diet. Studies shown that choline can help reducing birth defects caused by genetic mutation. It also helps the development of nervous system, hence very important to the preconception and pregnancy diet.
Egg yolks contain the most choline in our daily diet. Cauliflower has the highest amount of choline amongst vegetables.

How about a classic British Cauliflower Cheese as your side dish for dinner tonight?

  • Cauliflower 1 (trimmed and cut)
  • milk 500g
  • plain flour 4 tablespoon
