If you haven't had your breakfast yet, brace yourself when reading this...

Years ago, "Fear Factor" was one of my favorite shows.  

Contestants often had to eat really disgusting things.

Stuff like:

  • live leeches
  • a glass of liquefied pig liver
  • a bowl of blended rat

Anyways, you get the idea...

Good morning! ;)  If you haven't had your breakfast yet, oh well...

One food item I remember clearly was balut, commonly sold as street food in the Philippines. 

It's a fertilized egg allowed to develop enough that you can see the bird when the shell is peeled off.  When eating it, you might get some feathers and bones in your mouth.  I'll leave it up to you to Google.  Lol.

You don't need to go that far.

A normal egg is good enough.

In fact, it's one of my all-time favorite protein.

Especially if you're trying to get pregnant.  Doesn't matter if you're trying to conceive naturally, with IVF or IUI.  

Easy, inexpensive, and readily available - it's a must in any fertility nutrition plan.

Doesn't matter if your IVF or IUI is next week or you've been trying to conceive for years, eggs will give you a lot of bang for your buck. 

Doesn't matter what your diagnosis is either: unexplained infertility, male factor, poor egg quality, PCOS, endometriosis, recurrent miscarriages, etc.

Eggs can help improve your fertility.  

So make sure you have a few eggs several times a week.

In my online GPS (Get Pregnant & Stay pregnant) Fertility Program, I go into detail about which eggs to choose and what's the best way to eat them to maximize their nutrient value.  I also cover the other fertility-boosting proteins.   So cluck, cluck here, if you want in:  zenfertility.com/gps  

Stay tuned for a stupid simple egg recipe tomorrow.  It's a favorite at Chinese restaurants.  With tomorrow's recipe, you can now make it yourself at home!
