Eat Like Someone Else’s Life Depends on It {SALE} Natural Fertility & Healthy Eating for Women and Babies

May 6th, 2013 · 16 Comments · Uncategorized

ultrasound unborn childIt was when I was pregnant that I first decided what I ate was truly important. In fact, through tears of shock, Google searching for “what to eat when pregnant” was the best way for me to cope and “do something” when I had no idea what to do.

I was pretty young at the time (in my perspective at least) and didn’t really have any friends who were pregnant or had children. I felt a bit lost, definitely confused, and out of control – not something my perfectionist personality handled very well.

I read about the Bradley birth eating plan for a pregnant woman, and oh, my, was I surprised! I remember saying incredulously, “A whole pat of butter every day? And two eggs? How could I possibly eat that every DAY???”

How many of you are looking at the computer screen through tears right now because you’re laughing so hard at me?!

I know, I know…isn’t it ironic? I’ve come a long way.

I’ve been fortunate enough throughout my child-bearing years to have dodged the bullet of infertility, but I feel like I know more friends who have struggled to conceive or had a miscarriage (or both) than not.

I can only imagine that couples facing the agony of wanting a child and not being able to conceive feel quite lost, confused, and out of control, just as I did when I conceived and realized I wasn’t quite sure I felt ready yet.

I wonder how many turn to a Google search, looking for answers, as their only means of regaining a little bit of control over the situation.

My prayer is that infertile couples offer their burdens to God and find peace in the midst of sorrow, even while continuing to pray for a child and remaining open to the great gift of adoption.

My hope is that those couples, in their search for answers, stay away from unnatural means of conception, those practices that the Catholic Church, for one, knows are outside the will of God.

My goal is for those hopeful couples to search for “natural fertility” and find my friend Donielle, who blogs about finding your way to a healthy conception via food, exercise, and natural supplementation. Her story is one of moving from a Standard American, low-fat diet, which caused her to be infertile, to a whole foods, traditional diet, enabling her to conceive three children, two of whom now brighten her days just down the freeway from my house.

Donielle has been a great resource for me over the years, as a blog colleague, a real food leader, and a good Christian friend.

She has now put together a great resource for YOU on natural fertility, women’s health, a well-nourished pregnancy, and eating well in general, particularly for women. She and I both certainly know that not every infertile couple will achieve a pregnancy naturally, but we both certainly want to give people the best start possible:Natural Fertility Sale

  • 29 eBooks
  • 4 audios
  • 3 additional PDF info sheets
  • 7 week-long mean plans
  • a relaxation program, cycle tracker membership, and video seminar

The total value is well over $450, because I don’t think Donielle put a dollar amount on the meal plans, which folks generally sell via subscription for anywhere from $1-10 a week! I will receive a portion of any sales made starting at KS.

I’m thinking it might even be possible for someone who has no interest in natural fertility to get a value out of this package well beyond the purchase price of $34.95, but I think you’ll just have to see for yourself.

This bundle deal isn’t for everyone…but for those who are searching for information about natural fertility especially, but also women’s health in general, this package is a treasure trove, a way to stop combing through endless Google searches and know that you’ve got the cream of the crop right in front of you, without having to invest a chunk of your paycheck…because I know the struggle with infertility can do that to you quite often, and if results don’t follow, it gets disheartening.

    Katie,
    I’m a little disappointed with the tone of this post. I feel like, in your rush to promote this bundle, you’re being a little judgy. I’ve been through infertility. It’s hard. I’m also an ex-Catholic, because of statements like the one you made. It’s almost ridiculous in this day in age to make assertations about what the church “knows” as that seems to change with every decade. It only further alienates people. I prefer to think that the Lord has allowed us to learn more and more and help more and more people. We should embrace the fact that so many people desperately want to give their love to a child, and not judge the avenues some may take to get there.
    I love your blog, read you faithfully and respect all the work you put into it, but this topic is tender, and deserves recognition that while nutrition may help some people dealing with infertility, it may or may not solve whatever issue is causing the underlying infertility. It definitely couldn’t hurt! I just worry about those who have been through, or are going through, a similar situation feeling ostracized because they’ve considered using medical advancements as well to conceive.

    Katie Kimball @ Kitchen Stewardship Reply:

    Trina,
    I want you to know that I recognize and honor your pain, and I’m so very sorry for any Catholics who are in your past who helped intensify your pain through thoughtless words.

    On the other hand, I do believe in the sovereignty of the Church, and the fact that the Magisterium hasn’t changed its mind in 2000 years on issues of faith and morals, sexuality and procreation falling into the latter category.

    I would be easy for me to dismiss your comment – after all, don’t we all want to be right all the time? ;) But I prayerfully re-read my post to make sure that I did not sound judgmental toward those who may choose options against Church teaching, and I added a few sentences, about adoption and about the fact that I realize that certainly food is not a magic bullet that will help every infertile couple conceive.

    I try hard to find the balance here – to be able to say that an action is wrong, that there is a black and white, that moral truth exists, but on the other hand never to judge someone who has made a choice that is, in the eyes of the Church, a sin. “All have fallen short of the glory of God.” Sin is expected, and we all do it. It’s up to each of us individually to come to terms with each sin and repent, and my role is never to judge – but that doesn’t mean I can’t share the truth.

    This is such a tender topic, you’re right, and I pray that the Holy Spirit guides my handling of it all week long, and that anyone who feels ostracized is only there as part of God’s plan to reveal something that needs to be addressed in prayer.

    Thank you for the important reminder to “handle with care.” My heart goes out to you!

    Even though you’re an ex-Catholic, I hope we are still,
    Sisters in Christ,
    Katie

    Katie,
    Thank you for your thoughtful reply. I normally don’t comment on posts, especially regarding spiritual beliefs, and probably pushed the “submit” button emotionally. You are, of course, entitled to your opinions….it IS your blog. (smile) I appreciate your comments and your time.

    I don’t need most of these things, but it looks like it might be worth it just for the basal temp thermometer. Wondering if any of your readers have used this particular thermometer and love or hate it . . .

    Oh! And by the way…I’ve made from scratch chicken bone broth, thanks to you! I knew you had mentioned a few recipes you use it for – chicken noodle being one of them…I’ve probably spent a good long while trying to figure out what your recipe is for chicken noodle soup. Just add chicken and egg noodles?! lol — help! :)

    Katie Kimball @ Kitchen Stewardship Reply:

    Lindsey,
    Too funny! I think I might mention it in one of the early stock posts, but I’m not sure which one. It’s just 2-3 cups chicken, a few carrots and celery ribs, kluski noodles (or brown rice, or egg noodles), thyme, salt, pepper. Probably about 6 cups broth. I eye it up! ;) Katie
