Eat food, not too much, mostly plants*

Feb 12, 2021 | Fertility | 0 comments

A diet rich in vegetables and fruits is shown to prevent or reverse many illnesses.

And when you’re trying to get pregnant, eating more plant-based protein rather than animal protein has been shown to reduce the risk of infertility, including ovulatory infertility.

Things like:

  • Spinach
  • Broccoli
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Nuts
  • Beans
  • Legumes

This way of eating can also reduce inflammation and balance blood sugar and hormones – all beneficial to overall health and fertility.

If this is a new way of eating for you, start gradually. First add in more greens – aim for greens with every meal. (Yes, even breakfast.) Then find a black bean or lentil recipe that appeals to you and make a soup or a stew. Next week, enjoy Meatless Monday.

Always check with your MD before making any dietary changes.

You’ve got this!
