Notes on healthy eating.

Sunday, July 15, 2012

I'm reading about how best to eat to support reproductive health.
Here are some of my notes from one book I read.

Vegetables (5x, lettuce, cruciferous)
Eggs (yolks choline)
Salmon (Omega-3 DHA, EPA)
Nuts and Seeds (Flax, Chia, Almonds—omega3’s, hair, skin, nails, fiber)
Pastured Dairy (Cultured Dairy, Vitamin E A D K, Fat-soluble vitamins)
Stay away from milk—eat low temperature processed dairy like Goats Milk Kefir, greek yogurt, Amasi?

Suggested Smoothie:
4-8oz kefir, greek yogurt or amasi, coconut milk
Handful of spinach
TBSP flax meal and chia seeds (fiber)
Fish oil (capsule)
1-2 Organic Eggs

Nutrient-dense foods, healthy fats, good protein.

Don’t carb-up. Feeds bad bacteria. Bread, cereal, pasta.
Get carbs from berries and veggies, beans. No extra grains.
Healing food shopping list.

    Yes @sars613, exactly. All of my doctors visits lately were encouraging. I should try to lose more weight and get my cholesterol down in the next six months. I'm mad at the recent news about how bad eggs are for your arteries.. Yolks are wOrse than smoking. Ugh! It's changed how I do breakfast. See my latest post about that.

    By reproductive health, do you mean the ideal health for concieving? This is a great list - one of my big motivations for weight loss is that my husband and I want to have a child and if I do not lose weight, I could wind up having a very high risk pregnancy. One thing though, with the salmon - it is important to be careful with fish and not have it more than once or twice a week unless you are very sure of the mercury content!!
