Will eating salmon improve fertility?

How Salmon May Help Your Fertility

If you ask me, salmon has got to be one of the tastiest pieces of fish. Baked fresh in the oven with a bit of salt, pepper, and lemon juice. Yummmm.⁣

But salmon has a LOT more going for it than just being tasty? It is an AMAZING source of protein for when you’re trying to conceive as it’s FULL of omega-3 fat, both of the DHA and EPA types.

What’s not to love 🙂
