At the Fertility and Pregnancy Acupuncture Clinic, we recommend eating a high protein breakfast for many reasons. Apart from protein keeping you fuller for longer, a high protein diet regulates blood sugar levels throughout the day for fertility. Megan uses pomegranates as a topping, which also improves fertility by increasing blood flow to the uterus.
