Raw foods & Juicing

22 Jan

A friend through a friend found out that I have problems ovulating so he reached out to me about juicing and a raw diet. He sent me a long email about the benefits of raw juicing and how much that helps the body be able to do what it’s suppose to do. I still do believe that I need treatment, raw foods & juicing won’t be my only solution but I know it will give me a huge boost in getting there. After my own research I really felt that this will be great, he convinced me. I really hope to all the ladies reading this, try organic, raw foods(meaning dont cook your vegetables just eat them raw which is when they are at their highest nutritional levels) and stay away from meat that is processed or filled with hormones. You will feel a huge difference in your energy level as well as your body will be healthy and ready enough for your future baby 🙂

Is Organic really the way to go?

8 Dec

Having PCOS makes me wonder, how does this happen all of a sudden to three second generation cousins, where their mothers had no sign of it at all? It really confuses me and makes me wonder if all the hormones that are stuffed in our food have anything to do with it. Ever since I got diagnosed I have become a lot more health conscious, and even more so after failed attempts to ovulate to try and have a baby. I started wondering if I changed even more the food that I’m eating, including healthy snacking and about 10% indulgence in my favorite unhealthy food, will lead me anywhere. I have been eating healthy, trying as best as I can to get more organic food, eating lots and lots of fruits and vegetables, and just crossing my fingers. It really makes me mad when I think about food now because all of these food companies have just been hurting us for the sake of producing and making money. I would like to know that when I am consciously making a decision to eat healthy, that I might not be actually adding toxins into my body instead of getting better and healthier. I now feel like some of the blame of my PCOS can fall straight onto the food we eat, the non-organic food we eat that is. I was always the anti-healthy girl, the non-gymer and living life on the edge. Life has just done a complete 180 on me and everything My friends used to make fun of me about, has just caught upto me. I don’t know whether its funny or sad. Maybe a little bit of both. Anyways, green-teaing it up, fruiting it up, and vegging it up to see what happens this month.
Think about what you’re eating and putting into your system, you never know you might actually be doing long term damage without realizing..
