If you don’t already have a copy of Well & Good – then it’s time got onboard, to get your fertility plump and ready! And what’s more, fertility means health. So if your body is speaking to you gently in the form of endometriosis or poly cystic ovaries, it’s time to show it the respect it deserves and listen. For these signs may be gentle for the while, but give them a little longer and they’ll be no softer than a toddler on a piano (I can hear the lack of tune from here).
I want to make this super easy for you – so today, I’m giving you just 3 essential foods to get in your fridge and on your table for a more fertile you this year.
So here goes – pump up the proteins and therapeutic fats for a winning fertility combo.
Wild Salmon – is busting with the good stuff. Omega 3’s, fatty acids, fabulous protein quality and other essential vitamins and minerals like B12 and iron. Meaning it helps all the fertile bits, it helps your body cope with stress and fuels you in such a way you won’t be reaching for the cookie jar at 11pm because your body will have ticked all the fueling boxes. You know when we having everything we need – we are less likely to crave.
Coconut oil/butter – my most favourite food ever. I’m loco over coconuts! Coconut water is high in electrolytes (hello wrinkle zapper and IVF support to stop overstimulation), the oil and butter is the most amazing therapeutic fat going, it’s also a fantastic cleanser and moisturiser. Plus, it assists in weight loss, it’s packed full of antimicrobial-ness, it will help balance your hormones and it tastes amazing! Hello.. what are you waiting for?
Olives – Olives are useful to assist in maintaining a healthy reproductive environment because of their high antioxidants levels – aka, they help the body recover from daily living. You know, cells are changed by stress which will present as poor semen quality (think abnormal forms or motility issues), poor egg quality in women, period pain and PMS – I can keep on going and going. Seriously – why wouldn’t you be eating olives everyday already?
