This popular summer activity can harm your and his fertility

Yesterday was one of the biggest days of the year for grillin' like a villain.

So today's email is a tad tardy.  But I didn't think about it until I smelled all the BBQs firing up.

Better late than never...

Yes, grilling is awesome.  

Easy and tasty.

It seems to be the universal cooking skill mastered by men.  So very easily outsourced to hubby.  Bonus - they even volunteer to clean up the BBQ.

What's not to love about it?

Wait for it...I'm gonna rain on your parade right about now.

You know that fat, juice, and sauce/marinade dripping down into the open flame?  They're burning and creating cancer-causing chemicals that coats the meat.  

That's a no-no when you're trying to get pregnant.

Decreasing exposure to toxins is critical for improved fertility.  

So when grilling, the best way is to barely brown the outside, leaving the inside medium-rare to rare.  The rarer the meat, the better as more nutrients are preserved.

Never eat blackened, burned, or charred meat!

Yeah, this goes for the dudes too.  Cuz we need to keep his sperm strong and healthy, not crispy with grill marks.

Now, that I've ruined your (more likely, his) grilling season, I'm going to skedaddle right on out before your hubby throws his BBQ at me.

BTW, still working on getting the deets together for the fertility coaching.  If you're interested, fill out this application.
