Over the weekend, news spread that Royals, William and Kate, requested that their private villa was to be stocked with Brussels sprouts because they "wanted to increase their chance of fertility". Though Brussels sprouts are packed with folic acid, we have not heard that Brussels sprouts can aid in conception, but hey you never you know... While certain foods have been said to boost fertility, we have never heard of such "superfoods" that were scientifically proven to increase the chances of getting pregnant but we do know of some "superfoods" to consume once you are already pregnant.
When you are pregnant, the thought of certain foods can trigger intense cravings while other edibles can make you nauseous just at the smell. If you can stomach it, here are some foods that have been deemed "power foods" for those who are expecting:
*Salmon- heavy in essential omega 3 fatty acid, DHA, which is said to boost your baby's brain power.
*Asparagus- it might make your urine smell strange, but Asparagus is high in folate.
* Eggs- a great source of choline, a B vitamin that boosts fetal brain and memory development for those who are suffering from "pregnancy brain"
* Yogurt- a great source of zinc and calcium.
*Cottage cheese- a great source of protein
* Oranges- because you are five times as likely to develop a serious complication of the flu or cold you want to increase your immunity via vitamin C.
*Almonds- Loaded with magnesium, fiber, vitamin E and protein.
Have a delicious day!
