42 Recetas De Comidas Para Impulsar La Fertilidad: Estas Recetas Agregarán Las Vitaminas Y Minerales Correctas a Su Dieta Para Que Pueda Ser Más Fértil En Menos Tiempo<br />Por Joe Correa CSN<br /><br />Este libro es una colección de recetas basadas en comidas saludables que le proveerán de todos los nutrientes necesarios para incrementar la fertilidad y ayudar a su cuerpo a retornar a su balance hormonal, lo cual es un aspecto extremadamente importante de la fertilidad.<br />La reproducción es una cosa común para todos los seres vivos. Sin embargo, a veces no sucede en el momento que lo planeamos. Cuando escarba un poco debajo de la superficie, encontrará que las dificultades al concebir ocurren más a menudo de lo que parece. Y pasa a lo largo de todo el mundo.<br />Cuidar su salud reproductiva y prepararse para el embarazo significa que deberá cambiar algunos de sus hábitos, especialmente los alimenticios.<br />Muchos estudios han demostrado que una dieta saludable puede mejorar e impulsar la fertilidad. También puede prevenir las pérdidas de embarazos recurrentes, mejorar el embarazo, y la salud general en una nueva madre. Una comida llena de nutrientes variados es la clave para un sistema reproductivo saludable: ambos los espermas y óvulos están literalmente protegidos con antioxidantes, vitaminas y minerales.<br />Mis recetas están basadas en alimentos que ayudarán a su cuerpo a mantener su balance hormonal, incrementando la ingesta de nutrientes, para darle la posibilidad de tener un embarazo normal y saludable.<br />Otro tema importante que me gustaría mencionar es que todas estas recetas están basadas en comidas orgánicas. Debería siempre mantener esto en mente al prepararlas. Los pesticidas y herbicidas en la producción convencional de alimentos son dañinos y tienen efectos negativos en la fertilidad, tanto en hombres como en mujeres. Siempre escoja frutas y vegetales orgánicos, que no solo están libres de diferentes químicos, sino que también tienen muchos más nutrientes que las comidas procesadas.<br />Las grasas saturadas, el colesterol y ácidos grasos esenciales, son importantes para el desarrollo de un feto y su crecimiento. Las comidas como el pescado, aceite de coco, carnes alimentadas con pasto, frutos secos, semillas y otros, son ricos en colesterol saludable que mantendrá la producción hormonal en su cuerpo. Este libro le enseñará a preparar estas comidas deliciosas sin mucho esfuerzo.<br />Cuidar de su salud antes y durante el embarazo significa que está creando una nueva y saludable vida para su futuro hijo. <br />

<P>In the age of fingertip access to answers and a limitless supply of ambitions, where do we find the God who was birthed in dirt and straw? Sara Hagerty found him when life stopped working for her. She found him when she was a young adult mired in spiritual busyness and when she was a new bride with doubts about whether her fledgling marriage would survive. She found him alone in the night as she cradled her longing for babies who did not come. She found him as she kissed the faces of children on another continent who had lived years without a mommy’s touch.</P><br /><P>In Every Bitter Thing Is Sweet, Hagerty masterfully draws from the narrative of her life to craft a mosaic of a God who leans into broken stories. Here readers see a God who is present in every changing circumstance. Most significantly, they see a God who is present in every unchanging circumstance as well.</P><br /><P>Whatever lost expectations readers are facing—in family, career, singleness, or marriage—Every Bitter Thing Is Sweet will bring them closer to a God who longs for them to know him more. What does it look like to know God’s nearness when life breaks? What does it mean to receive his life when earthly life remains barren? How can God turn the bitterness of unmet desire into new flavors of joy?</P><br /><P>With exquisite storytelling and reflection, Hagerty brings readers back to hope, back to healing, back to a place that God is holding for them alone—a place where the unseen is more real than what the eye can perceive. A place where every bitter thing is sweet.</P>
