How to Implement into Life:
One: Cleanse your kitchen of foods to avoid
Two: Stock with healing foods
Three: Eat Hormone Balancing Meals Each Day By Focusing On:
Make 1/2 your plate vegetables and greens: Have veggies at each meal
A palm size of protein
1/2 avocado or 1-2 tablespoons healthy fat (coconut oil, almond butter, butt olive oil) Eat enough healthy fat! Healthy fat = healthy hormones!
Palm size of complex carbohydrate such as sweet potato, plantain, squash, or quinoa
Four: Eat in a relaxed state: You could be eating the healthiest food in the world- but if you are eating it too fast or stressed- your digestion is shut off and you are not going to absorb the nutrients you need from the food. Take a few deep breaths before each meal and eat as slowly as you can- really chewing and enjoying each bite.
Five: Balance your blood sugar each day by:
NOT eating high sugar/high carb meals.
Eating enough protein and fat at each meal.
Are you eating enough quality food? Many women are not eating enough nourishing foods each day to get the essential fatty acids, amino acids, and minerals they need to produce hormones properly. Make sure you are nourishing your body with enough healthy fat, proteins, complex carbs, and veggies each day and avoiding foods that just do harm like vegetable oils, processed sugar, and non-organic meat products.
