It's no easy feat trying to conceive. A woman needs everything working in her favour if she wants a bun in the oven (and not just because of those cravings). One way you can help yourself is by taking care of your diet after ovulation. In this article, we will explore what foods are best for nourishing your fertility and ensuring that you get pregnant.
The Importance of Post-Ovulatory Diets
After we ovulate, our bodies start preparing the uterus for possible pregnancy. The uterine lining becomes thicker, creating an ideal environment where the fertilized egg can implant itself and grow into a tiny fetus. However, for this process to be successful, our bodies require specific nutrients such as protein (nope we`re not talking about whey) carbs, vitamins and minerals which when present will promote hormonal balance and increase chances of getting pregnant.
Bananas - A Wonder Fruit
Apart from their sweet taste and yellow hue that comes with good stuff like vitamin C , bananas contain Vitamin B6 necessary for regulating hormones (this affects luteal phase duration), potassium-which helps regulate salt levels thus lowering blood pressure making uterine walls relaxed hence increasing possibility if accommodating fertilisation.
Here`s how breakfast would look :
1.Banana pancake Mashed banana+ Oatmeal + cinnamon + Almond milk = perfect pancakes with potassium goodness
2.Fruity Delight Smoothie Bowl - Banana+ Blueberries+ Dates+ pineapple slices + coconut flakes= ideally nutritious beginning
