The Fertility Diet

Anyone who knows me well, knows that I have serious 'baby fever' from time to time.  Given the fact that I'm 30, I can definitely feel the tick tock of my biological clock. I have been doing all of my research on the natural ways to prepare my body for a natural, health pregnancy within the next few years. One of the areas I have been working on is my diet.  Here is a checklist I got from that helps me to keep track of what I should be eating every day.

Make sure to eat these foods everyday, here is a checklist to help you remember…
Dark leafy and cruciferous vegetables such as chard, spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, and kale.
A large salad with a wide variety of vegetables.
Fiber with each meal to help keep the blood sugar levels balanced. Good sources of fiber are vegetables, beans, seeds, nuts, and grains.
Make sure to get essential fatty acids every day.
Whole grains such as quinoa, brown rice, oats, spelt, millet, amaranth, and buckwheat.
Eat at least three servings of fresh organic fruits a day to provide beneficial antioxidants, fiber, and phytonutrients. I love to use fruit in smoothies with superfoods.
Drink a fresh juice daily. Drink one green juice every day. (If you are not able to get a juicer you can replace this step with one serving of UltraGreens or another organic greens supplement everyday.)
Fertility Specific Nutritional Supplements such as Baby and Me multivitamin, MorDHa omega 3, and others. To find out which supplements are right for you, please visit
Plenty of water
At least one superfood a day such as spirulina, maca, or royal jelly.

 All of my ladies who are trying to conceive now or in the near future, what are you doing to prepare your body for pregnancy?
