Here’s a simple fact that will increase your fertility: the more vegetables you eat, the more fertile you will be.
Repeat: More vegetables you eat, the healthier and more fertile you will be. Implant that thought in your brain, please, please, please.
Your diet should include a lot of vegetables every single day.
Note the word: a lot.
In fact, most of the foods you eat, starting with breakfast, should be vegetables.
Starting now, the way you eat should revolve around vegetables.
Vegetables should no longer be just a small side dish you include with dinner—they should be the main course, present at almost every meal and every snack you eat. They are the key to healing your body. You need to start looking at vegetables in a way that is not traditional in our culture—as your main source of food.
Vegetables should become part of your breakfast, your snacks, lunch and dinner. You want to find as many ways as you can to dramatically increase the vegetables you eat daily.
For lunch, eat a big bowl of romaine lettuce. Munch on parsley for a snack. Roast some asparagus and olive oil to eat before bed. Bake some sweet potatoes and olive oil for snack. Include spinach in your salads or sandwiches.
Slice up some peppers, carrots, red and green peppers, tomatoes, and seaweeds and place in bags so you have easy-to-eat snacks ready throughout the day.
Don’t allow a busy schedule to force you to have to run to the nearest fast food drive-through because you are starving and need to just fill your stomach. At night before bed, prepare a salad of chicory and romaine lettuce. Or just wash some kale or spinach, put in a bag, and have it on your way home from work.
Nibble on broccoli before bed. Include a salad with every meal. Put vegetables on your pizza, in your tomato sauces, soups and stews.
Instead of a sandwich of deli meat, how about a sandwich of tomato and basil, broccoli and cheese, or spinach and tomato?
Eat vegetables the way you would eat fruit—a whole cucumber, a whole tomato, a whole carrot.
Select one or two days a week and eat only vegetables the entire day. Start your day with a green veggie drink or smoothie, add some flaxseed, coconut oil, maca, honey and spirulina.
Make a vegetable breakfast wrap, top an multi-grain English muffin with onions, peppers, and tomatoes. Create dips with vegetables—and then dip your vegetables! Add vegetables to spreads like hummus or mashed avocados. Make vegetable submarine sandwiches, with healthy bread and lots of olive oil.
Juicing or smoothies are a great way to include more vegetables in your diet. Drink a glass of spinach juice each day. Juice parsley, kale, beets, and garlic once or twice a day.
Start including garlic in many of your recipes as you can. Chew on garlic, juice garlic and make garlic part of your daily eating routine.
Remember: from now on, vegetables should make up more than 60 to 70 percent of the foods you eat each day.
Some super fertility vegetables include:
• Spinach is high in iron and folic acid, two important nutrients for reproductive health. Women with low iron intakes are at greater risk for ovulatory fertility.
To enhance absorption of iron from spinach, combine it with a food that contains vitamin C, such as broccoli, strawberries, green peppers or oranges.
• Alfalfa provides the body with a rich source of essential minerals important for reproductive health.
• Broccoli and cabbage contain a phytonutrient that helps with estrogen metabolism.
• Yams and sweet potatoes contain a compound called diosgenins which impacts hormonal patterns and increases ovulation. Yams have massive amounts of vitamin A that improve cervical fluid and follicle development. They are also loaded with beta carotene that helps regulate the menstrual cycle. It also has high amounts of Vitamin B which helps regulate hormones. They also help stabilize blood sugar—and the more stable your sugar levels, the better your ovulation will be.
• Asparagus is also a high fertility food.
• Wheat Grass is one of the best sources of living chlorophyll. It helps balance the PH levels in the body and is high in magnesium, which helps restore sex hormones.
• Spirulina is a great source of the essential acid GLA.
• Chlorella: a green algae that helps the body cleanse and detoxify.
