Summer Super Foods

Hitting the local farmer's market is not only a fun pastime during the summer months, it's also a healthy one! The warm weather and abundant crops offer a plethora of tasty choices that may boost your fertility, too. Here are a few of our favorite summer super foods to pick up on your next outing.

  • Spinach: Popeye was right when he downed the spinach. It's full of antioxidants, anti-inflammatories and vitamins. It's also full of folic acid. Pick up other green leafys, too, such as kale and collard greens.
  • Kiwi fruit: One cup of kiwi provides more potassium than the same amount of sliced bananas, but with less sugar and calories. It also has high vitamin C, which may enhance sperm motility.
  • Beans: Beans are a good source of protein, and they are loaded with fiber, folate and magnesium, as well as being a great source of iron. Fava beans, lima beans, canellini beans and more are available fresh in the summer.
