Spiralized Estrogen Detox Salad for the Ovulatory Phase of Your Cycle

By | Blog, Eating For Your Cycle, Menstrual Health, Salad | No Comments

An Estrogen Detox Salad- it’s all in the fibre

Use spiralized veggies to increase the amount of fibre and veggies in your diet in a delicious way. Spiralizing your veg is also a time-saver; it’s much easier than tedious chopping!

I love to add spiralized beets, squash, zucchini, and carrots to my meals and create delicious recipes.

I had an irresistible craving for an Asian-inspired salad and came up with this estrogen detox salad. Seasonal mangoes and zucchini noodles (instead of pasta) just had to be in the dish. I found happiness in my first bite… it tasted exactly how I envisioned and I was totally satisfied.

Though you can enjoy this salad any time (except during your period; we recommend more warm food) this recipe provides ideal support for your body during the ovulatory phase.

During the 4-5 day period when you’re ovulating, supply your body with lots of fibre and specific nutrients to aid in estrogen detox. This will help prevent symptoms of estrogen dominance later on in the month. This shows up as PMS, bloating and even a heavier period, fibroids or cysts. Simply Eating For Your Cycle can do your body a world of good!

Here’s why this estrogen detox salad is so good for your hormones

 

When eaten raw, Carrots and Zucchini provide fibre that helps you detox and remove ‘bad estrogen’ from the body.

If you have high levels of heavy metals, your cortisol may run high and impact your fertility. Cilantro can help you out here!

Sunflower seeds are a little known fertility superfood. The Vitamin B6 inside supports progesterone levels which is key for conception and prevents PMS. Studies have shown that B6 even helps women ease into their menopausal years! In addition, sunflower seeds provide you with Vitamin E, a helpful antioxidant (you can’t get enough antioxidant foods!). Healthy fats from sources like nuts and seeds is an essential building block for hormones, and it helps you feel satiated from your meal.
