Autumn Crunch Salad to Balance Female Hormones

By | Blog, Menstrual Health, Salad | No Comments

Are you eating enough salad to balance your female hormones?

 

Salads are often thought of as a healthy ‘diet’ meal that is a lower calorie alternative to other entrees. However, in order to achieve a healthy hormone balance between, say, estrogen and progesterone, you need to eat the correct amount of the correct foods.

If you choose a salad as an entree, it’s got to be packed with nutrition. You need to feed your body the building blocks to make progesterone.

This includes cholesterol, vitamin-A and thyroid hormone. Read More

Adrenal Healing Snacks for Food Cravings

By | Adrenal Fatigue, Blog, Snacks | No Comments

Many people struggling with adrenal fatigue report an increased amount of food cravings; sugar and salt especially!

 

Low energy induces food cravings for instant forms of energy to keep you going in the absence of correct cortisol levels.

In stage 3 adrenal fatigue (low cortisol all day) or stage 2 (low cortisol in the morning) you crave more salt. Your blood pressure may be low due to the cortisol levels being low and you’ll find yourself hunting around  for salty snacks.

If you’re stressed you may be desperate for crunchy food. You crave the crunch to relieve tension in your body. Crunchy foods have a soothing effect on a body that’s stressed.

When you crave creamy taste or texture, it usually means your body needs fat. Food cravings are also hugely psychological, and creamy (and chocolaty) cravings may give you a comforting feeling of childhood that is soothing.

We’ve put together a list of our 3 favorite snacks to help satisfy these common food cravings that accompany adrenal fatigue. The ingredients satisfy the crave factor and provide the right nutrients to help your body heal.

By | Blog, Menopause, Smoothies | No Comments

This is a delicious smoothie recipe that is full of superfoods and nutrient-dense ingredients to support sex drive, quality of orgasms and decrease vaginal dryness.

Though many women will opt to take estrogen therapy or use an estrogen cream, botanicals and foods can also be an effective way to achieve the same results as bio identical hormones.

Feed yourself meals that increase menopause libido such as the smoothie recipe below.

Fertility-Boosting Wild Salmon Poke Bowl

The best way to get omega-3 is from fertility foods like raw wild salmon

 

As a matter of fact, high-end fish oil supplements are not the best way to get your omega-3. Omega-3 fats are chemically fragile:  their carbon double bonds are easily oxidized by exposure to heat, light and oxygen. Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is an omega-3 fatty acid that is a primary component of the brain, cerebral cortex, skin, and retina. However, DHA’s molecular structure makes it one of the most vulnerable of all dietary fats.
