Rise and shine: 7 fertility approved breakfast options
June 8, 2018
Recent studies have focused a lot on the impact diet can have on fertility. We now know that some items need to be cut out if a woman is trying to conceive (such as soda and skim milk), while food items like healthy fats can promote fertility (such as avocados). Therefore, you might as well get a jumpstart on a healthy fertility diet, and these seven items are each beneficial in their own way. We’ve highlighted a few more below in even greater detail:
How eggs can benefit your body with Vitamin D
According to new studies, Vitamin D can help promote reproduction, and eggs are one food is packed with the nutrient. According to the American Egg Board, one large egg contains 6 percent of your total daily value. Eggs are an easy way to get this vitamin, as you can cook them in minutes as omelettes, scrambled or fried, depending on your preference!
How choosing full-fat over low-cal actually has its benefits
In a world where “low-cal”, “fat free”, and “light” all seem to be the best food option, studies have shown that full-fat dairy has major benefits when it comes to fertility. Instead of cutting out your current dairy habits altogether, swap your skim milk or light yogurt for a whole-milk option instead!
Fruit, fruit, and more fruit
How berries and citrus fruits can improve fertility
Fertility levels aside, berries are well known for their high levels of antioxidants. Keeping your reproductive system healthy is must when it comes to conception, and so adding blueberries or raspberries to your cereal, pancakes, or yogurt is a great choice. Another fruit category that includes great benefits is anything citrus, as Vitamin C (found in these fruits) assists your body in absorbing iron, which is another proven fertility-helper.
While there is no magic food to help solve fertility issues, the options listed above can certainly boost your body to be at its best. Find the diet that works best for you, and consider incorporating a few (or all!) of the suggestions above.
