Nutrition to Fuel Fertility

By Megan

Foods that Fuel Fertility by Urban Remedy

What is one of the most influential acts of your daily life (often occurring three times a day) that can affect your fertility? You guessed it! The act of eating. Truth be told, food is healing. Get your grocery list out and add these fertility boosting foods: Almonds, Pumpkin Seeds, Chia Seeds, Lentils, Black Beans, Spinach, Collard Greens, Kale, Bell Peppers, Tomatoes, Cabbage, Broccoli, Cremini Mushrooms, Avocados, and Bananas.

Make it Easier on Yourself. Drink Fresh Raw Juice!

Your fertility benefits greatly from a generous intake of raw vegetables, especially those dark leafy greens that can be hard to eat in large quantities. One way to really optimize the amount of nutrition you are getting is through juicing. In a single bottle of Urban Remedy Juice, you are getting multiple servings of fruits and vegetables. Think of it this way: it takes 10 cups of chopped carrots to make just one 16 ounce carrot juice. You would have to eat a lot of carrots to equal all the nutritional benefits of a single raw juice.

Get Enough Protein and Healthy Fats

If you are vegetarian or vegan, be sure you are getting enough protein. Surprisingly, many fruits and raw vegetables actually contain a fair bit of protein. Avocados, for example, have 10 grams of protein. Fill in the missing protein gap with nuts, seeds, legumes and grains. Choose quality fats such as coconut oil, which can also be used in cooking. Not all healthy fats can be heated and maintain their healthy properties.

Superheroes Need Superfoods!

Becoming a parent requires you to basically turn into a superhero. It’s a big role and you will need all the energy you can get. Our Meal Replacement Shakes are another great way to load up on nutrition. Our Chai Meal is a great fertility booster because it’s loaded with protein and fortified with the perks of maca. Maca is a superfood that helps to balance the hormones, supports the health of the sexual organs and gives you a little extra rev in your engine.

Give yourself the best chance at getting pregnant and having a healthy pregnancy. Being the healthiest version of you is step one. Everything is a journey: Getting healthy, getting pregnant, giving birth, being a parent… Good luck on your journey!
