Are you looking for a natural progesterone source?
I love sweet potatoes because they contain a full spectrum of hormone balancing nutrients that help build natural progesterone.
The hormone progesterone is naturally dominant in the luteal phase of your cycle. Optimal levels are essential for fertility, balanced moods and minimal PMS symptoms, as well as a balanced period.
Progesterone & Your Period
Do you experience heavy menstrual flow? Flooding may be a symptom of not enough progesterone. Estrogen builds the endometrial lining and progesterone halts its growth, helping to ‘ripen’ the lining and prepare for potential pregnancy.
If you’re Eating For Your Cycle, focus on natural progesterone building foods like sweet potato in the luteal phase. Sweet potatoes are high in vitamin A, vitamin B5, B6, thiamin, niacin, riboflavin, and due to their orange color, are high in carotenoids. Read More

Wow, it’s time to make dinner… again??
If you’ve had adrenal fatigue, you can relate to the weight of this simple question. In stage 3 adrenal fatigue, there’s only a handful of hours a day that you’re able to push through. Meal planning has you feeling defeated before before you even begin.
Of course, you need to eat. Regular meals help stabilize your blood sugar, which keeps the adrenal glands balanced.
So what are we supposed to do?
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
