This month’s Recipe Redux theme is “Grab a Book and Cook” which is a fun way to remake a recipe from your favorite cookbook. I’m obsessed with The Fertility Foods Cookbook, partly because it’s a labor of love from two of my favorite RDs but mostly because everything looks DELICIOUS!
Elizabeth Shaw and Sara Haas share their very personal stories with infertility and have created a fantastic resource to approach infertility through nourishing food. The beauty of this book is that it’s full of gorgeous, nutritious recipes for everyone. Even the guys!
I also love the really sound information Liz and Sara share regarding:
1. How to incorporate MyPlate into your diet.
2. Choosing fruits and veggies- organic vs conventional.
3. Portion sizes and recipe recommendations for fruits and veggies as well as cooking
techniques and great instruction on roasting and sautéing veggies.
4. Choosing the right grains for fertility.
5. The deal with dairy, protein and fat and other nutrients to consider such as calcium, folate, iron, selenium, vitamin D, zinc and choline.
I’m dying to make so many of these amazing dishes including:
Shakshuka (Eggs in Tomato Sauce)
Flax Oatmeal Bake with Peaches
One Pot White Bean and Kale Soup
Open-Faced Cauliflower Grilled Cheese
Pan-Seared Cod with Cumin and Avocado Cream
Heavenly Chocolate Cake with Rich and Creamy Chocolate Frosting
I decided to recreate the Spiced Almonds on page 134 because I had all the ingredients on hand, they sound delish and versatile, AND, we are supposed to pick a recipe on a page that’s any combo of the numbers in 2017. I figure 3+4=7, so 134 equates to 17. Works for me.
These dynamos are so good in salads, on yogurt, cottage cheese, oatmeal, cereal, smoothie bowls, overnight oats and so much more.

- 1 large egg white
- 1 Tablespoon water
- 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 Tablespoons golden monkfruit**
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 3 cups whole unsalted almonds
- Preheat oven to 300F.
- Line a large sheet pan with parchment paper.
- In a medium bowl, whisk egg white and water until frothy.
- Add in cayenne, cinnamon, monkfruit and salt and whisk until combined.
- Add almonds and gently toss them to coat.
- Spread almonds onto the parchment paper and bake for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.
- Remove from the oven and allow nuts to cool on the sheet pan.
Nutrition Facts: 1/4 cup = 162 calories, 6g carbs, 14g fat, 6g protein, 28mg sodium, 1g sugar.
Store the almonds in a sealed container for up to 2 weeks.
My modifications: I LOVE cinnamon so I added a little more and swapped brown sugar for golden monkfruit to decrease the amount of added sugar.
**If you don’t have monkfruit, you can use brown sugar or a brown sugar stevia blend. Look at the label to determine the right amount. Some varieties are sweeter than sugar and would require less.
