Shrimp is high in protein, selenium, and B12. The protein and B12 are important to maintain your higher energy levels in this phase, and selenium can boost progesterone production which will be important during the luteal phase.


Pineapple is rich in antioxidants, and an inflamed body won't be able to produce and maintain healthy hormone levels - so this is especially important as estrogen is at its peak during ovulation. It also contains an enzyme that aids digestion, bromelain, which helps protect your gut and helps you absorb vitamins and minerals.
