DH and I are currently TTC. I am opting to go without supplements and instead have a super good diet for a number of reasons including manufacturing processing of supplements and the fact that having a good diet means less weight gain in the long run (hopefully haha).
So has anyone else done this? Or is anyone considering? I have known a few people to do it..
Currently my diet is:
Cereal (25% folate enriched) with some barley max and fruit
Scrambled eggs with some peas, corn, etc and 2-3 slices of toast.
Fruit and/or yoghurt
Salad containing rocket, spinach, tomato, cucumber, capsicum, whatever veges are in the fridge (sometimes raw broccoli etc) and cottage cheese, hard boiled egg, hard cheese or tuna. A little salad dressing when I feel like it and occasionally some crackers or 1-2 slices of bread.
Lean meat with veges (spinach, peas, corn, carrots, broccoli, whatever is in the fridge/freezer) and mashed potato (sometimes with garlic), lentils or pasta. OR
Salad with some lean meat.
Fruit (usually while DH eats a packet of timtams or similar he has such a good metabolism!!)
