Looking for a new snack idea? Why not try your hand at making this delicious cabbage dip and serving it with crudites like carrots, cucumber, or chopped apples.
Cabbage is an extremely nutritious and fertility-friendly food. Low in calories and high in dietary fibre, vitamin E, vitamin C, vitamin K, folate, beta carotene, calcium, and iron – all of which are beneficial to health and fertility. The other ingredients in this dip are also excellent fertility foods.
