The Importance of Full-Fat Dairy

To improve fertility odds, grab one daily serving of full-fat dairy. A container of Greek yogurt for breakfast or an afternoon snack is a great option. Not only does it contain more calcium than milk, but it’s packed full of probiotics and two to three times more protein than a cup of regular yogurt.🥣

The vitamin D in Greek yogurt also helps the follicles in your ovaries mature as well as strengthens bones and boosts immunity.

If you’re not a yogurt fan, no worries. You can still aim for 1,000 mg of calcium daily, whether it’s through a cup of full-fat milk, one ounce of cheese or another source of dairy.🥛

Grab an Avocado and Enjoy!🥑

Did you know that avocados are a great fertility boosting food??!🥑 They are a great way to get your daily dose of folate, and they contain vitamin K, which helps your body effectively absorb nutrients while maintaining hormonal balance.

In addition, avocados are high in potassium, which helps regulate blood pressure, and they contain a high concentrate of vitamin E, which is known to stabilize and protect cells from oxidative damage, a plus for women with PCOS or diabetes.

So grab an avocado each day and enjoy!🤩

What Can Citrus Fruits Do For You?

Did you know that citrus fruits are one of the best sources for vitamin C?🍊🍋

Oranges, grapefruits, and other citrus fruits are also packed with potassium, calcium and folate—a B vitamin that can help regulate ovulation and create a healthy environment for eggs.

In addition to another serving of fruit, you should aim for at least one serving of citrus fruit each day.💕

Stock up on those Leafy Greens!

One of the best ways to take in essential prenatal nutrients is by eating dark green veggies like spinach, kale and Swiss chard.🥬🥗

Some of the key nutrients you get from these leafy greens are calcium, iron (especially important when you’re menstruating) and folate, which also protects against birth defects in the brain and spine that can develop in the first few weeks of pregnancy.

Most women don’t get enough folate from their diet though, so it is recommended to take a daily vitamin with folic acid (the synthetic version of folate). Your doctor can give you specifics on the amount you should strive for based on your own health needs.
