I eat the same foods that I recommend to my fertility patients.
Because the foods that promote fertility also are excellent for overall health.
But I don't have time to do fancy meals. So I'm on a mission to simplify my meals.
Here's an easy lunch idea that I pack for myself and my kids all the time...
And yes, it's fertility friendly...
- 1-2 pasture-raised eggs any way you like them, sprinkled with sea salt
- 1 organic avocado
- Any non-cruciferous organic, raw vegetable you like e.g. tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, radishes, etc.
Note that I don't have any carbs in this meal since I recommend limiting your carb intake to your dinner. Carbs have a sedative effect so take advantage of that by eating it at night. That will help prevent the post-lunch drowsiness.
If you like your eggs scrambled, over-easy, or fried - cook them in grass-fed butter, ghee, or coconut oil. Eat the yolk! That's where most of the nutrients are. Keep the yolk as runny as possible to preserve the nutrients.
Tip: Cut the avocado right before you're ready to eat it so that it doesn't brown. Keep the pit in the avocado to prevent browning.
