Beef: It Does A Body Good!

Aug 10, 2020

I know it’s not PC to recommend beef as a healthy food, but it’s high time we overcome some misinformation. If you want to get pregnant and have a healthy baby, you need the right nutrients and beef is an excellent way to get those nutrients.

Choline

Choline is essential for a healthy pregnancy and baby and it is recommended that women get at least 450 mg daily. One cup of Brussels sprouts and broccoli contain the most choline in the plant world, 63 mg, while 3 oz of liver...

6 Things To Do After A Miscarriage To Get Ready For Another Baby

Dec 18, 2019

When we think of having a baby, we want three things to happen; a conception, holding onto the baby, and nourishing the baby to term. Sometimes holding onto the baby is difficult and the pregnancy ends with a devastating miscarriage. About 2% of women will experience a second miscarriage and 1% will experience a third which is called recurrent miscarriage.

While having one miscarriage is not all that uncommon, having two or more is, but the good news is there are steps you can take to give...

Thinking About IVF? Try This First!

Dec 13, 2019

In America, 10 in 100 women have trouble getting or staying pregnant. That’s over six million women! Way too many if you ask me.

The best option we have for treating infertility is in vitro fertilization or IVF. If you are under the age of 35 and do three cycles, you have about a 40% chance of getting pregnant with IVF, but if you are over the age of 42, that chance drops to 4%. Those really aren’t great odds.

In addition to poor odds, it will cost around $33,000 for 3 cycles...

Why You Can't Get Pregnant On A Vegan Diet

Nov 24, 2019

With climate change and concern over the environment and animal welfare, going vegan seems to be the hot thing right now. We definitely need to make some changes in how we treat animals and how we raise food, but is a vegan diet a good choice for making a baby?

No, and I realize that will ruffle some feathers, but hear me out because I really do want you to realize your dream of being a mom.

Plant foods do not contain vitamin A. I know what your thinking, “but they have beta carotene...

We know we need to cut down on the sweet treats, but we don’t always think about what we are drinking. Eating a lot of sugar is bad; drinking sugar is even worse.

Sugar containing beverages include soda, fruit juice (sweetened or unsweetened), juice drinks, sports drinks, sweetened ice tea, and lemonade. Drinking sweetened beverages has become a norm. Everywhere you go, there is some offering of a sugar laden beverage.

Before you take...

Sugar Busters That Really Work

May 14, 2019

We know we eat too much sugar in this country, but it’s so hard to give up! While you don’t have to give it up entirely, you do need to cut down, but sometimes those cravings are just too hard to handle.

When you find yourself in a place where you just have to have the sugar but you really don’t want to, the first thing to do is breathe and give yourself a break. We all have days where we just don’t  have the strength to fight so we give in. It’s okay. The...

Kick Cravings To The Curb Without Giving Up Everything

Apr 14, 2019

Let’s be honest, maintaining a healthy weight is much harder to do today than it was 100 years ago or even 50 years ago. It just seems a bit unfair, but we are humans and we adapt. Sometimes we just don’t adapt fast enough.

Back when we had to hunt and forage for food, our brains were perfectly suited to seeking out calorie dense foods which was a good thing because we never knew when the next meal was coming and we had to expend a lot of energy to get a meal, so it needed to be a...
