Yep, ditto the above. There have been links between food and twin pregnancies, but it usually isn't isolated to individuals who changed their diet and achieved a twin pregnancy. I don't think there is harm in trying to eat more of those foods you mentioned, but I'm not sure you are significantly helping your odds.
Twins are a huge blessing, but be careful what you wish for
My singleton pregnancy was a breeze, but with my twins I was on partial bedrest for 8 weeks and complete bedrest for 8 more weeks. The twins were born at 33 weeks, and spent 4 weeks in the NICU. This had nothing to do with the fact that I used fertility treatments, nor did my age play a factor (I'm only 31). It is great that you want to focus on the positive side of things, just please be aware that no matter how old/mature you are or how much you prepare, there is nothing in the world that can prepare you to watch your babies struggle to breathe because they were born early.
Good luck...I hope you achieve your dream of Motherhood!
