Fertility Food Recipe - AIP MANGO SALSA

fertility food Oct 17, 2020
Living without salsa is like living without a soul.
 
Okay, maybe a little dramatic. But when I found out that I had an autoimmune issue that was making me infertile, I was excited that we finally found our answer to our unexplained infertility, but devastated that all nightshades were literally off the table.
 
It took us over five years and two failed IVFs to find our root cause to our unexplained infertility and when that day came, I was more than happy to go Autoimmune Paleo (AIP).
 
 
Okay, I'm being dramatic again. Going AIP sucked, like really sucked. I felt like I had given up so much in the name of infertility and cutting out nightshades was one of the hardest things I had to do. But I was willing and made a big commitment to doing it right. And that meant cutting out all of my beloved Mexican foods.
 
A few months ago I was visiting my family back in California and my dad made a crazy good persimmon salsa - persimmons are hard to get a hold of over in the UK, so I thought why not substitute it with mango!
 
I went a solid year without googling or experimenting in the kitchen (I’m not sure why), so when I found suitable AIP replacements like Nomato & Mango Salsa, I felt like I got a little part of me back!
 
This recipe makes enough salsa for 4:
 
1 Mango (make sure it's not too ripe - you don't want mushy salsa)
1 Red Onion
2 Garlic Cloves
Coriander (Cilantro)
Fresh Lemon (1/3) or Lime (1/2) Juice
 
 
Salsa is so easy to make - you can just use a knife for chunky salsa or if you want a finer salsa use either a hand or electric chopper. Chop all ingredients to desired chunkiness, add fresh lemon or lime juice & mix it all together!
 
This mango salsa is fantastic with fish tacos (gluten-free of course), AIP friendly fajita salad or just about any fresh Mexican-themed dish. If you have your favourite "chip" substitute, this salsa is amazing straight out of the bowl!! 
 
Enjoy-
 
 
Sugar Warning: If you’re following a low-carb diet or watching your sugar intake, you’ll need to know Mango is high in sugar. 3 ounces of Mango has roughly 12.3 grams of total carbohydrates - Sugar, a type of short-chain simple carbohydrate, accounts for more than 90 per cent of the total carb count, totalling 11.3 grams.
