Some of our friends have been so supportive on our infertility journey. It’s when you go through hard times that you realize who your true friends are. One of mine was so kind to surprise me by sending this book in the mail. When she was in town over Christmas, we hung out and I told her about some of the lifestyle changes we wanted to make, and surprise, this book shows up. So thoughtful and generous! I have mentioned her before as she was one of my friends who sent this awesome sermon at the beginning of our journey, which eventually got me addicted to the Brooklyn Tabernacle sermons!
Anyway, this book is awesome. I know so many people love the Paleo diet, and I will go ahead and say that I don’t agree with a lot of the theories of the diet, but I think it has some great ideas. A lot of the Paleo diet actually contradicts what a typical “fertility” diet should be.
But, even so, I love this book because it does a great job of really understanding how to approach our health in a natural way. Half of the book is about our health, and the other half is recipes. So far we have tried the pumpkin pancakes and they were easy and delicious 🙂 The book also gives meal plans and suggestions for many different diseases or disorders, including autoimmune, gut issues, gluten-free, blood sugar, thyroid, cancer, etc. When we read up on and were told that we had to start buying top line protein, this book was perfect at explaining how to buy the healthiest chicken, beef, and eggs. Overall, it’s just a great book of how to be and eat healthy.
If you get a chance, check out this book, especially if you follow the Paleo diet!
