What NOT To Say To A Friend Dealing With Infertility

When I prep someone for pregnancy, the first thing I do is pull unhealthy things out of the diet. After I detoxify them, I begin adding healthy foods back in. A gardener always gets the soil as healthy and nourished as it can be before planting precious seeds and plants, the healthier the soil, the more healthy and vibrant those seed and plants will grow. 

Our bodies are similar: the healthier our bodies are before pregnancy, the better the environment is to maintain a healthy pregnancy as well as to support a flourishing child.

Something I have all my clients drink pre-pregnancy is my fertility smoothie. Not only does it taste AMAZING but it also does so many awesome things to enrich your body by getting it ready for pregnancy. Everyday millions of old cells die and millions of new cells are born; the antioxidants and greens in this smoothie help feed the new cells being birthed.

The added supplements are to support fertility. I know that it can be annoying and time-consuming to take a ton of vitamins and supplements everyday. What I love about my smoothie is, you throw it all together in a blender and you're good to go! 

Ingredients
  • Frozen mixed organic berries. (You can buy fresh berries and freeze them.)
  • Almond, rice milk, or hemp milk. (I prefer these—not big on dairy.) You can also use organic milk if you choose.
  • Protein powder. (I like something natural and clean with out a lot of additives or soy.) 
  • 2 shots of wheat grass (You can use powder, but tastes better when using fresh shots or I use a frozen one by Evergreen.)
  • Maca root powder
  • Acai or goji berries 
  • Mixed powered greens
  • Royal Jelly (* If you're allergic to bees do not use!)
  • Bee pollen (* Again, don’t use is you have a bee allergy!)
  • Liquid omegas or coconut oil 
Preparation

Mix all ingredients together in a blender. Depending upon desired thickness, use more or less milk to get the consistency you like.
