Choosing Healthy and Nourishing Foods During the Holidays


apples google(1)This month, as many gather to celebrate the holidays, it is a great time to remember the importance of nourishing foods to feed both your body and spirit.  As you are celebrating over the next few weeks, keep in mind the importance of balance.  While there isn’t one perfect diet for fertility, there is a balance between allowing yourself to enjoy the special holiday meals, and providing your body with the most healthy and nourishing foods possible.  With the awareness of a few simple tips, you can enjoy your holiday meals while nurturing your fertility.
Nutrition for your fertility can be broken down into a few easy to remember guidelines, derived from Dr. Kiltz’s Fertile Secret:

  • Clean:  Try to reach for the most pure items with the fewest ingredients.  Minimize processed foods, to maximize the nutrients available to your body.  This also includes minimizing sugars and starches.
  • Fresh:  Include something fresh in every meal.  While enjoying your holiday meals, add an extra side of fruits or vegetables.
  • Clear:  Make sure that you are drinking plenty of water!

We want you to enjoy the holidays, while also feeling in control of your journey to your most fetile self.  If you are going to indulge this holiday, remembering to balance with one of the guidelines above will help you to stay on course.
This week our Circle of Hope support group sessions will meet with special Holiday Gatherings.  We also have three virtual support events remaining for the month.  For our support available this month, please be sure to check this article and our CNY Fertility calendars.
Finally, did you know that we started  new Private Facebook Fertility and Pregnancy Groups for current clients?  Here, you can find a safe and secure space to share with other women and men facing similar challenges.  You can get immediate support and feedback!  If you are interested in joining, please message Lisa Stack within the Patient Portal
