Black rice salad with avocado & mango
Black rice is a fertility superfood because it can improve circulation, reduce inflammation and it’s jam packed with antioxidants. The avocado in this dish provides healthy fat and vitamin E whilst the mango provides fibre and iron. Serve with lean meat of white fish for a perfectly balanced fertility boosting meal.
