Summer Bouquet: Colorful and Nutritious Recipes

Jars of Veggies
Chicken Yummy
berries

 Note: Frequently we address diet and wellness concerns with our patients, including those with the diagnosis of PCOS.  Therefore, we are offering this article to help provide healthy AND tasty ideas for summer meals and snacks! Notice that many are made from ingredients that can be fresh from the garden!  As a hint - when trying to maintain a healthy diet “eat a rainbow of colors” - seek out foods with natural color (such as carrots and broccoli )  and try to reduce the amount of white and brown foods (like sugars and starches).  Bon appetite!

Summer is a delicious season with beautiful and bountiful produce.  Enjoy this seasonal freshness with convenient snacks and as essential ingredients in your meals.

Since healthy snacks are important, why not make them decorative and simple?  Slice whole carrots and celery and put them inside Ball jars.  Then, fill the jars with water, twist on the lids and place them in an easy to reach area inside your refrigerator.  Now when you get the munchies, you have access to an inviting and delicious snack that you can pair with peanut butter or hummus.

Step by Step

Baby
Baby Boy Stacie

Stacie Krajchir, an HRC Fertility patient and advocate for fertility awareness, recently was interviewed and stated that her first foray in to the “world of infertility” was scary and shameful.  She described, with much passion, how she originally thought that the first meet and greet with the fertility staff would be “easy” and that her expectations included that she would be given a simple “to do list” and snap she would become pregnant. Easy as pie!

A simple solution for Stacie’s infertility was not the case and in many of our patients the path to infertility is not just one or two, but many steps. We understand that the process is full of a whole host of emotions for all the patients who walk through our Rancho Cucamonga office doors. Scary. Shameful. Embarrassed. Sadness. Grief. And, we hope in eventuality – Happiness!

That is why we celebrate the small successes along the journey to parenthood with you and in praise of YOU!

RESOLVE – the National Infertility Association has celebrated, educated and resolved to increase awareness about infertility for 25 years. This year, they are focusing on the educational component of their association during  National Infertility Awareness Week – April 20-26th.

RESOLVE has selected the theme – “Resolve to know more” in order to enlighten their audience about fertility options and how to self-advocate. They have outlined the following as their benchmark “resolutions”:

Resolve to know more about when to see a fertility specialist. Resolve to know more about all your family building options.   Resolve to know more about infertility advocacy.  Resolve to know more about the latest treatment options. Resolve to know more about the disease of infertility.  Resolve to know more about adoption.

In order to help individuals learn about more, RESOLVE has also offered a full educational component to their website.  HRC of Rancho Cucamonga will be supporting the efforts of RESOLVE by posting much information on our social media platforms and website.  We hope that you will help to amplify their message by retweeting and reposting, as you wish.

On the Infertility Bookshelf- Part Two

So much information about infertility! How can you choose? For some people, book reviews and checking to see if a resource is given a good amount of stars helps guide the weeding out process. For others, they want to devour any and all information about infertility in order to feel they are prepared for “anything and everything.”
