I created this ‘Fertility Chili’ recipe – chock full of fertility foods – as a fertility diet recipe to include in your IVF meal plan, or your fertility diet to increase fertility and prepare your body for pregnancy. It is an easy way to integrate multiple IVF Superfoods and Fertility Foods into one easy and delicious dish. Not only is it supposed to support and increase fertility, but it tastes good, its stress-free and easy (made in the slow cooker), packed full of nutrients and protein, AND it makes plenty for leftovers for the entire week. When trying to conceive, it is important to eat a nutrient dense diet high in protein and healthy fats. This chili checks all the boxes for a great meal to enjoy while trying to get pregnant, going through IVF, or while pregnant.

So how does ‘Fertility’ Chili increase fertility?

All of the fertility foods and ingredients in this fertility chili recipe work together to provide protein, iron, and the healthy fats needed while trying to conceive. Almost every single ingredient is a fertility food or pregnancy superfood. Here’s why:

Olive Oil or Avocado Oil – Diets rich in healthy Monounsaturated fats, like those in Olive Oil, have shown to increase chances of embryo transfer success, and a healthy pregnancy and birth. Olive oil is rich in antioxidants, and helps reduce inflammation. 

Quinoa – Quinoa is another fertility superfood. It is rich in fiber, minerals, antioxidants and all nine essential amino acids (a perfect protein!). Quinoa is one of the healthiest and most nutritious foods on the planet.

Ground Turkey or Beef – When you’re trying to conceive it is important to eat A LOT of protein. Lean meats, like turkey, are one of the best sources of protein. 

Spinach – Dark leafy greens are full of iron and folic acid – two of the most important nutrients in pregnancy. Dark leafy greens help increase circulation to the uterus and thicken the uterine lining needed for embryo implantation.

Sweet Potatoes – Sweet potatoes are a fertility food and pregnancy superfood! They are packed full of Vitamin A, which serves as an antioxidant to protect against cell damage and improve egg health.

Black Beans – Beans are high in protein and fiber. They are also full of folic acid and other vital nutrients and minerals that are essential to pregnancy.

Bone Broth – Bone broth is a fertility superfood on so many levels! Each cup has about 10 grams of protein and is chock full of amino acids that every cell in our body needs.

Avocado – The fertility superfood of all fertility superfoods! The avocado is SO important when trying to conceive and during pregnancy. Eating the healthy fats in avocados while trying to conceive has shown to TRIPLE your chances for conception and a healthy pregnancy ending in a live birth! Eat up to an entire avocado every day!

Turmeric – Turmeric not only fights inflammation, but it also fights free radicals and improves egg health. It also increases circulation to the uterus.

Beets – I included beets in the recipe because beets are important in thickening the uterine lining. They also provide a ton of iron and increase circulation to the uterus to enable embryo implantation.

    Do you think I could do this in a Dutch oven instead?

    1. FertileFoods

      Hi Julie! Of course! It would work great in a dutch oven or even on the stove.

  2. Nicole

    I don’t see where the beets come in? Am I crazy?

    1. FertileFoods

      Hi Nicole! You are SO correct!!!! Thank you for pointing this out. I added the beets into the actual recipe where they should be. Thank you, and I’m so sorry for any confusion!

  3. I’m really excited to try this recipe. My husband said he’s going to make it for me. I’m going to swap out the beets, as I’m actually allergic.

    1. FertileFoods

      Hope it goes well!

  4. Hilary

    Would it be ok to skip the chipotle peppers or do they have a fertility benefit? I don’t love the taste but willing to eat if necessary!

    1. FertileFoods

      Absolutely! Skip em! Enjoy!

    Could I cook this on the stove instead of a slow cooker? If so, should I make any changes when making this recipe on the stove? Thanks!

    1. FertileFoods

      Absolutely! I don’t see any reason to change the recipe at all. As long as you cook the potatoes until soft you should be good!

  7. Maria

    This recipe turned out delicious! I ended up boiling the beets and potatoes separately and then added them in 15 minutes before it was done. I will be eating this again.
