Saying farewell to the luteal phase with sunflower seed crumbed cod, cinnamon roasted sweet potato and green salad with spinach, snow peas, olives, tomato and goat cheese. Sweet potato satisfied my sweet cravings, fish was fresh and crumbly while the salad gave crispness. I’m careful with dairy and especially avoid cows dairy as my skin breaks out  and I get bloated. I can have goats and sheeps dairy occasionally as I don’t get the same reaction. @larabriden’s book the period repair manual confirmed that this is common as the protein casein often causes sensitivity and is high in cows dairy but up to 89% lower in goats and sheeps dairy. I can also tolerate ghee which has had casein removed in its preparation. I emplore you to listen to your body, learn about what it’s telling you and adjust accordingly. It will help you to improve your overall health and in turn your cycle. I believe we females are lucky to have our period as a vital diagnostic tool and a window into our overall health. Looking forward to a farmers market haul tomorrow and a quiet day as a welcome a new cycle and the menstrual phase. Wishing you all a fulfilling weekend filled with love and light ✨

The luteal phase is when a woman’s body requires the most nutrients. Progesterone, estrogen and testosterone reach their peak leading into the menstrual phase. To help your body make these hormones and flush out excess think of healthy fats, iron rich food and green leafy’s for calcium plus reduce fluid retention. It’s not unusual to feel tired with less energy during this phase. Remember, your body is working hard, listen to it and rest to support it. Fun fact our body temperature is higher during the luteal phase due to all the work it’s doing. Warming meals are perfect in the luteal phase as your body doesn’t need to try so hard to break down and digest nutrients. I love to make big batches of slow cooked meals that I can easily heat up and avoid lots of preparation. Soups, stews or curries are a great way to get healthy fats and add root vegetables to meet the sweet cravings often experienced at this end of the cycle. Pictured is a delicious chilli con carne using organic minced beef, red kidney beans, kale and pumpkin. It’s been topped with smashed avocado {hello fibre!}, coconut yoghurt for all the fat and fresh coriander from my garden. Hope your hump day is swell and your feeling happy with health 🦋

Hormone creating breaky with all of the fats 🥑 🥓 
Did you know that all of our hormones are made from cholesterol as their building block? Something that really improved my cycle was introducing more fats in their natural form. I had long cycles and by introducing animal fats and using 3 tablespoons of fat a day my cycles shortened 👌. Let me tell you I was worried about putting on weight but instead lost kilos and now sit in a healthy weight range. I was having a period every 45+ days and now I have 32 day cycles. I made other changes supported by a holistic GP, naturopath and acupuncturist but listened to my body at every stage. Currently I’m mid cycle so my body needs easy to metabolise proteins like egg as well as spinach and tomatoes to assist in getting rid of excess hormones. Today’s breakfast includes all organic ingredients of avocado with pepper and jalapeño salt, coconut oil and coconut amino fried shiitake mushrooms 🍄, scrambled eggs with garlic, tomatoes, turmeric and spinach and finally (happy) free range bacon. I’ll have a mid morning smoothie later with some strawberries and oats to get some fibre and vitamin c into my body. If you’d like to know more about my hormone journey to improve my cycle length comment with a 🧡💛💚💙💜🖤💗. Happy weekend lovelies 😊

Organic local produce doesn’t need to be fancy and expensive. Support your hormones, health and your local farmers by attending organic farmers market. This haul was $40AUD and will last me a week in my luteal phase along with some chickpeas and organic beef I already have on hand 🤗 Now off to make some paleo bread and mini frittata for snacks 💃🏽

This meal borders on mid cycle foods and luteal phase ingredients. Fresh simple salad dressed with EVOO and ACV with steamed broccolini, brown rice and well seasoned baked cod. So satisfying and left me feeling nourished and energised for a busy afternoon. Cycle syncing is easy once you’ve done it a few cycles in a row and you start to remember what foods when. Also if there’s a cross over of ingredients from other phases go with it cause your cravings need to be listened too.

🥒🥕🍠🍞 RECIPE 🥒🥕🍠🍞
Gluten and dairy free vegetable filled bread! I certainly did break my fast with deliciousness this morning. Flo living and hormone friendly ‘bread’ topped with smashed avo, jalapeño salt, pepper, olive oil, pumpkin seeds and hemp seeds. I toasted the slice under a hot grill pre avo on a baking tray. This is a great recipe to satisfy those bread desires and ensures your not feeling like your missing out 😍. Here’s how to make this scrumptious loaf, depending on budget organic ingredients are ideal: 
You’ll need 1 cup almond mill, 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds, 1/4 cup chopped roasted cashews, 1/2 cup coconut flour, 2tbs psyllium husk, 1 large grated zucchini, 1 large grated carrot, 1 cup grated sweet potato, 4 eggs, 1/4 cup coconut or avo oil, 1tbs paprika, 2 tsp cumin, 2 tsp gluten free baking soda and 2 tsp Himalayan salt. 
To make preheat your oven to 170C. Spray and line a bread tin with baking paper. Combine all the dry ingredients except cashews in a bowl. In a seperate bowl grate your veggies and add lightly whisked eggs and oil. Stir the wet ingredients. Add dry and wet ingredients together in the one bowl and use your hands to make sure it’s well combined. Get down and dirty 😉 Pop the mixture in the tin and sprinkle cashews on top pushing them in gently. Pop in the oven for 60 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean. You’ll want to keep an eye on it from 50 minutes as time can vary depending on your oven. It may also need more then 60 minutes. Next remove from the oven and let it cool in the tin for half an hour. Lift the loaf out and slice to enjoy. Keeps for 5 days and I love it toasted under the grill. Hope you enjoy 😊

Crispy chickpeas are a new favourite. They are the perfect snack or a great addition to crunch up a salad. Chickpeas provide the body protein and carbohydrates. They are also full of fibre assisting digestion. These gems are also high in zinc and folate, essential for hormone balance. I also love that they help control blood sugar and if your trying to maintain a healthy, predictable flo this is crucial! These crunchies are so easy to make. Set your oven to 180C. Rinse a can of organic cooked chickpeas. Dry dry dry! As much as you can using paper towel or a tea towel, this is a very necessary step! Peel the skins of [makes them EXTRA crunchy]. Dry again. Toss in a bowl with a tablespoon of avocado, coconut or olive oil and a little salt. Roast for 45-60 minutes giving the baking tray a schimmy every 15 minutes. Once they are crisp remove and season as desired. I love paprika and cumin but the options are endless! They last crisp and crunchy for about 4 days ... Assuming you don’t eat em first 😉

Eating a hormone balancing diet shouldn’t be restrictive. As soon as I feel like I’m missing out on something that’s full of gluten or dairy I look for alternatives and these days the options are endless! Recently I’ve been feeling like ‘bread’. Store bought gluten free options often contain soy fillers, preservatives and unnecessary food acids... in other words potential endocrine disruptive ingredients. I made this paleo loaf recently and it’s packed with good stuff including beneficial fats and veggies. It has sweet potato 🍠, carrot 🥕 and zucchini 🥒 to name a few. This morning I had it for breaky topped with smashed avo and egg! Turn your frown into a smile and find creative ways to nourish and meet your cravings. Be careful of store bought gluten free products and make your own! Let me know if you’d like the recipe and I’ll be happy to share. Wishing you a gorgeous week ahead ☺️

Snicka’s recipe 😎 #droolicious 
Excuse the bite, I couldn’t wait to take the 📸
I don’t know about anyone else but during my lutealphase I want all the sweet things 🍭. Chocolate, even gluten and dairy free store bought often contain all sorts of additives and processed soy. So. Here’s the recipe for my saving grace. You’ll be licking your fingers at every stage. And for those that aren’t date fans nor am I and somehow with the cashew crunch and overwhelming salty choc you don’t even notice them. I use ashwagandha and organic ingredients to boost the benefits of this treat but totally optional depending on your cupboard ingredients and budget. I truly hope you enjoy these as much as we do in my house 😍
Ingredients:
1 cup pitted dates, 1/2 cup hot filtered water, 2 tbs filtered cold water, 3/4 cup cacao, 1/4 cup  honey (or alternative of choice), dash of cloves, dash of cinnamon, 1tsp ashwagandha (optional), 1/2 tsp vanilla extract, 1/4 cup coconut oil, 1/2 cup nut butter (I used @pureharvest ABC + hemp spread) and 1/2 cup dry roasted roughly chopped cashews. 
Method: blitz dates and hot water. Clean out the blender into a bowl. No need to wash as you’ll reuse to blitz 2 tbs of the date ‘caramel’ you’ve just made along with 2 tbs filtered water, cacao, honey, cloves, cinnamon, ashwagandha, vanilla and coconut oil. Remove from the blender and stir through the nut butter. Add a pinch of salt. Now you have your chocolate base 🍫. Next line a baking tray with baking paper. Spread the chocolate base, I find making it square and about 1cm thick ideal. Spoon the date caramel on top of the chocolate and lightly spread evenly. Then sprinkle a pinch of salt over the caramel. Now you want to sprinkle the cashews over. Once the cashews are on gently push them a little to make sure they freeze into the caramel. Pop the tray in your freezer for a few hours or overnight. Finally slice to your desired size into chocolate bars. You’ll want to keep these guys frozen, I store in a glass container with baking paper between each layer. ENJOY 🤩

Menstrual phase hack 💃🏽
If your not already using a menstrual cup I highly recommend it. The cotton used in tampons comes from the part of the plant that is the most sprayed and you are inserting that into your womanly parts. Period cups are also great for our planet as they produce no waste. Finally, and this is my favourite part... period cups allow you to see explicitly what your flo is doing every day of your menstrual phase. Our period is a vital sign for overall health therefore it’s important to see the colour and amount of your flo from start to finish. Doing this can help you determine if your hormones and body is performing as it should. Using a cup has helped me find out more about my cycle and research ways to improve it. I have been using the @thedivacup for nearly a year now. It does take some getting used to but as an ex tampon user I found the transition super easy. In my opinion periods are magic and we should honour them 🌸 They are a window into our health and deserve our respect and review 👀 #notanad #justgirlythings

Luteal blueb pancake flayva🍹
Beautiful Sun☀️Day morning calls for something sweet and satisfying to support my endocrine and reproductive system. I’m at the end of my cycle and my hormones are all at their peak. To nourish my body there is an emphasis on leafy greens to avoid fluid retention by giving magnesium and calcium. Also it’s natural to crave sugar at this stage so I love adding sweet root vegetables and berries to give natural sugars. I like to enjoy my home made ‘snicka’s’, I’ll share the recipe on Tuesday. Vegetables like sweet potato assist the large intestine and liver to flush hormones like estrogen. This smoothie tastes like blueberry pancakes 🥞 but has all the hidden vegetables. To recreate blitz the following organic ingredients:
1 cup of frozen blueberries, 2/3 cup steamed then frozen sweet potato 🍠, 1/2 cup steamed then frozen zucchini, 1/2 cup steamed then frozen cauliflower, giant handful of baby spinach, 2 tablespoons of pea protein (check for any nasty ingredients 🤢 - I ❤️ @teresacutter_healthychef organic pea protein), 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 tbsp sunflower 🌻 seeds, 1 tbsp flaxseed oil, 1 tbsp vanilla extract (again check for no nasty ingredients 🙅🏻‍♀️) and 1.5 cups of filtered water💧. Would love to hear your feedback! Here’s to a joyful Sunday friends ☺️

I’ve been reminded this week to be kind to myself and listen to my body. I’m at the end of my cycle and I have been feeling tired and a little irritated because I haven’t had enough ‘me time’. It’s been a busy week of work and I have been annoyed with myself for not making time to workout or get other tasks done as all I have wanted to do is rest. One night I even slept 10 hours! I’ve  been learning how important sleep is lately for our hormones and cycles so I’ve listened to my body, rested as much as I needed and today as the weekend starts I’ve had a desire for exercise. I completed a big beach walk while listening to @fertilityfriday latest ep. Have a listen to Lisa and her amazing guests when you can. Highly recommend! I’m now sitting down to this satisfying organic feast of greens tossed with seeds and olive oil, fresh paleo loaf made using vegetables, roasted pumpkin <luteal ingredient>, a smokey babaganoush and a poached egg. Satisfied, grateful for my body and its wisdom and ready for a restful restorative weekend. Big love all 💗

Mid cycle breakfast 🍳 
In the middle of the cycle you naturally have energy to burn it’s also the best time for communication. To support my body this morning I made insanely delicious scrambled eggs with a little turmeric, tomatoes 🍅, organic eggs, coconut oil, baby spinach and garlic. I served with a side of amazing avocado 🥑 and my home made GF and DF Nordic Seed ‘bread’. Beautiful strawberries were included to provide fibre and help my body remove estrogen. Finally one of my favourite teas - 3 cinnamon by @pukkaherbsaustralia. I have been caffeine free for nine months, one of the best things I could have done for my cycle. I’m taking this energy filled body for a big beach walk today and I can’t wait 😊. Big love to you all 🙏

Salmon satisfaction 😋
Meals don’t have to be time consuming and fancy when eating to support your cycle. A late arrival home tonight led to an organic dinner of smashed avo {all the good fat}, cherry tomatoes, fermented mushrooms, crispy skin salmon [💁🏻‍♀️ more good fat] and baby spinach. I had 100g of salmon offering 20g of protein as well as omega benefits. I rubbed olive oil on the skin and then fried in a super hot pan skin down. Once crispy I turned it for a few minutes. While I rested the salmon I threw a giant handful of spinach in the remaining hot oil and seasoned with garlic. A simple, satisfying and nourishing meal supporting my body in so many ways!

Ahhh pesto 🌿🌱🍃🌿
Autumn has a officially sprung in my part of the world. The farmers market is full of organic greens and it is delicious! This morning I could not walk past the sweet smelling basil so I listened to my cravings and bought 2 giant bunches! On my arrival home I washed and drained the basil, popped on some groovy jazz music and made this beautiful pesto. I’ll be adding it to my lamb shanks tonight, popping it on toast during the week and having it is a sneaky side to my breakfasts. Pesto is wonderfully versatile and a great way to give the body nourishing greens and healthy fats. Basil alone is high in vitamin K, manganese, copper, vitamin A, vitamin C, folate, iron, magnesium, calcium and omega-3 fatty acids. All crucial to have a perfect flo. Here’s how I make mine by blitzing the following. I strongly encourage you to tweek seasoning and garlic to your own palette. 
2 large organic bunches of basil, 4 gloves organic garlic, juice of 1 large lemon, 5 tablespoons of olive oil, 10 almonds, 10 cashews and salt and pepper. **Hot tip** Sterilise the glass container you store this in and it will keep forever! I do this by soaking the lid and container in boiling water.
Ahhh pesto 🌿🌱🍃🌿 Autumn has a officially sprung in my part of the world. The farmers market is full of organic greens and it is delicious! This morning I could not walk past the sweet smelling basil so I listened to my cravings and bought 2 giant bunches! On my arrival home I washed and drained the basil, popped on some groovy jazz music and made this beautiful pesto. I’ll be adding it to my lamb shanks tonight, popping it on toast during the week and having it is a sneaky side to my breakfasts. Pesto is wonderfully versatile and a great way to give the body nourishing greens and healthy fats.

In the first half of your cycle your body needs easy to digest light proteins and vibrant fresh vegetables. Hormones are slowly building so supporting ovaries is done with antioxidants and high fibre to assist in the processing of hormones. @floliving suggests chicken in the follicular phase. I ❤️ curry and grew up on the stuff! Tonight I made satisfying butter chicken with only organic ingredients and it was #delicious. Here’s the recipe for 3 serves, thank me later 😉
- 450g organic chicken thigh, 3 tbs coconut oil, 1 large red onion, 2 gloves garlic, 2 small green chillies (can leave out if your not a fan 🌶), 1 tsp chicken @brothoflife 2 tsp garam masala, 1 tsp ground cardamom, 1 tsp ground coriander, 1 tsp ground ginger, 1 tsp cumin, 1/2 tsp paprika, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 turmeric, 3/4 cup passata, 1 lemon, salt & pepper, 1 x 400ml can coconut milk, desired vegetables {I love kale, broccoli, mushrooms, beans, capsicum} and fresh coriander or parsley. 
Method: Blend onion, garlic and chilli. On a low heat sauté the onion purée and coconut oil. Add all the spices and gently cook for a few minutes. Next pop the passata, @brothoflife bone broth and coconut milk in. Simmer. Simmer. Simmer. For 10 minutes on a low heat. It’s all about the gravy baby! Then add your chicken and the juice of a lemon. Cook through for a few minutes. Pop in your vegetables. Stir and continue to cook on a medium heat for 10 minutes. Last add salt and pepper, check for seasoning and VOILA! Serve on what you desire - rice noodles, brown rice, cauliflower rice 🤔. Top with coriander or parsley 🌿
I hope you enjoy! I’d love to hear your feedback.

Follicular phase haul 🥦
Hormones are at their lowest and are increasing slowly. The overall effect of this is an open mind and willingness to try something new. Creative thinking is encouraged and will come naturally. We are more energised during the follicular phase - exercise wise cardio will feel great. To build energy think vibrant, colourful and light foods to support the body. I’ve been to my local farmers this morning and topped up on 3 types of organic lettuce, fermented vegetables, organic eggs, organic chicken and these beautiful veg. I’ve washed and now drying all my veg before storing in canvas bags in the fridge to keep them super fresh. I love washing veg with filtered water and apple cider vinegar to remove critters and dirt from hands that might have handled the produce. Organic veg you need to be wary of 🐛 cause critters aren’t killed from herbicide and pesticides used on normal non organic vegetables. Happy Sunday beautiful people, may you laugh, relax and enjoy fresh produce 🌿 #sundaywellspentbringsaweekofcontent

Today’s lunch was 👌
Super nourishing and colourful. Meeting my end of cycle needs with loads of cruciferous veg to help my body detox. Root vegetables meeting my sweet cravings - normal at the end of your cycle. Pickled ginger and sauerkraut are mighty for my gut flora. Beef provides all the cholesterol to help make hormones crucial at the end of cycle when they should be at their peak. Interestingly cholesterol can only be found in animal fats and whilst we’ve been led to believe cholesterol is ‘bad’ for us it’s actually vital to produce all the bodies hormones. If your interested in learning more I suggest looking into @westonaprice or reading nourishing traditions. Happy Sunday lovely people, here’s to a wonderful week ahead full of productivity and happiness ☺️

Oh my, smoothie satisfaction! 
I used to think adding veg to smoothies was bizarre. They need to be sweet and fresh I thought. Well preaching from the converted don’t doubt it till you try it! This glorious purple smoothie is full of protein, healthy fats, carbohydrates, vegetables and fruits to support your body. All my veggies were steamed then frozen making it easier for my body to digest. Also only organic ingredients removing any nasty endocrine blocking pesticides. This smoothie has 3/4 cup pumpkin, 1/2 cup cauliflower, 1/2 of zucchini and a cup of fresh baby spinach. Also included is 20g of collagen, 1 tablespoon of almond butter, 1 tablespoon of flaxseed oil, 1 cup of frozen blueberries, 1 pitted date, 1.5 cups filtered water, 1/2 teaspoon of reishi and 1/2 tablespoon of lions mane. So satisfying, sweet, creamy and filling👌

Luteal phase soup! 🍲
Flo is just around the corner and I’m naturally craving sweet foods. Root veggies are perfect to provide a sweet fix and support the liver detox excess hormones. Leafy greens add calcium and magnesium, necessary throughout the cycle. My endocrine system is working over time with my hormones at their peak in my cycle. Warm foods easy to digest support my body in the luteal phase. Chickpeas are a perfect plant based protein also assisting hormones to be flushed. I have low energy and motivation so this was made using my steamed and frozen veggies used for smoothies. I popped 1/2 a cup each of the following; zucchini, cauliflower and kale plus a cup of pumpkin. I also threw in a knob of fresh ginger. Then I added filtered water to cover the frozen veg and simmered with a tablespoon of coconut oil, a little paprika, tumeric and cinnamon. Once bubbling I threw in a quarter of a can of organic chickpeas. To serve I blitzed, added chopped coriander, S&P and another 1/4 of a can of chickpeas. I also added a tablespoon of 2 ingredient homemade coconut yoghurt cause who wouldn’t! Super easy, satisfying and what my body needs🚶🏻‍♀️

All the colours 🌈
A super easy to prepare a nutritious work meal🍴. I’m loving frittata! It’s a great way to incorporate current phase foods. I’m just starting my luteal phase and have some left overs from my last phase. Simply fry sweet potato on a medium heat in coconut oil. After a few minutes add kale, capsicum and, chopped garlic and broccolini stalks. Add some water to the pan and cook until everything has softened and the water has evaporated. Then lay it all out evenly, add your cherry tomatoes, olives and zucchini noodles. Pour over two lightly beaten eggs, season with salt and pepper. Finally reduce the heat to low, pop a lid on and let it cook until the eggs are cooked through.. roughly 15 minutes. To serve garnish with your favourite herb 🌿 ... I love coriander👌 . This feast can be eaten cold the next day and is full of the good stuff. All organic, healthy fats, carbs, proteins and nutrients. You can change it up depending on what’s in the fridge or where your at in the cycle. Mushroom, bok choy, spinach, pumpkin and cauliflower all work great too! Enjoy lovelies ☺️

Organic haul ready for the weekend! Lately I have been doing a quick veggie shop on a Friday for vibrant local organic veg. Results in a home cooked meal Friday night and the rest of the weekend. Tonight we have bok choy, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, plums and strawberries. All lovingly washed using filtered water with @bragglivefoods apple cider vinegar. It's important to wash your veg as you don't know how many hands have touched them. Equally important to remove water and dry well so they stay crisp and last long. Happy weekend friends, may yours be filled with love, light and self care 🙏🏼

Spanish omelette to start my week 🙏🏼 Perfect mid cycle full of lean protein and healthy fats for my body to build hormones as they slowly increase leading into the luteal phase. Simply whisk two organic eggs with paprika, salt and pepper. Add a tablespoon of coconut oil to a hot fry pan and add 1 crushed garlic. Pop in a handful of washed baby spinach and cooked prawns. Stir for a minute to heat the prawns and wilt the spinach. Then turn the heat to low, add eggs and move the liquid around to make sure the entire pan is covered. Pop a lid on and leave for a few minutes on low. Slide onto a plate and serve with more cracked pepper as desired and a sprinkling of coriander 👌

Simple mid cycle nourish 🍤
At this stage in the cycle it's important to fill up on raw veg to assist removing excess estrogen. Fermented foods assist the gut while colourful vibrant food keeps us energised. Prawns offer a great source of omega-3 fatty acids which our bodies can't produce. They contain amazing healthy fats including cholesterol, the initial building block for all our hormones. Dinner is all organic, 🙅🏻 pesticides! I have corn only tortilla's with avocado, prawns, and rocket with a side of chilli olives, cherry tomato and fermented beet cabbage 😍

Work lunch follecular phase 🔆
Loving my glass containers to support the environment as well as not leaching plastic endocrine blocking chemicals into my organic feast. Hormones are at their lowest and fresh salads and lean protein are the priority 🍳. I have a bed of rocket with fermented beets and cabbage - cruciferous veg to help the liver cleanse. Plus kalamata olives, roasted pumpkin, colourful tomatoes 🍅, boiled eggs and homemade gf/df babaganoush. So satisfying especially after my morning HIIT workout. Listening the my body and following the guidance of @floliving for an optimum cycle ♻️

💃🏻Menstrual Smoothie💃🏻
I've had a few requests for this amazingly nourishing smoothie. You can probably guess this purple beauty has beets. I buy organic, dry roast them wrapped in alfoil for about an hour in a hot oven. Let them cool then simply peel the skin and they ready for smoothies, salads - you name it. Intake of beetroot helps to cleanse the liver. Drinking beetroot juice boosts the iron content in blood.. Super important for blood flow during your period. Regular intake of beets are a well known remedy for curing menstrual problems. I also have frozen organic blackberries in the smoothie full of amazing vitamins and minerals to replenish the body for what's lost during bleeding. Here's the recipe:
➖1 whole roasted beet, skin removed ➖1 cup of frozen blackberries ➖Large piece of steamed then frozen cauli ➖1 cup of filtered water ➖2 scoops of @vitalproteins collagen peptides ➖2 tablespoons of cacao powder ➖Tablespoon of avocado oil
Blitz on high for a couple of minutes and enjoy 🤗

My current side salad fave 🙌🏻
All organic blanched kale, green olives, blanched broccoli and dill with lemon juice (vitamin C increases iron uptake from veg) and extra virgin olive oil. I try to up cruciferous veg like kale and broccoli throughout my cycle to assist my liver to flush out hormones. It's crucial to cook kale and broccoli as they are goitrogenic - they can inhibit the uptake of iodine by the thyroid. They also contain oxalic acid whereby the acid binds to minerals and causes them to crystalise which can cause inflammation. Simply boil these yummies for 7 minutes, drain and squeeze excess water. This will reduce nasty raw properties mentioned by up to 90% 👊🏼

Oh M Gee! When I saw @shutthekaleup post this I was so excited to try and make this amazing 'bread'. Check it out on her feed. Easy recipe just requires time as I left it in the fridge overnight before baking. Gluten, soy and dairy free.. Also full of nuts, oats, avocado oil and much! Have a crack, you won't be disappointed. Sliced this baby up to freeze and will give me morning toast for at least 2 weeks. I start most days with avo toast and egg 🙏🏼

No filter needed for this gorgeous organic rocket 😍 (known in some parts of the 🌏 as rucula). A little helpful tip I've learnt along the way is to store loose lettuce - wrapped in dry paper towel. Helps to soak up liquid from the lettuce. Rather then wasting paper I've recently tried and tested a dry tea towel and it works even better! I wash then store my organic lettuce in a glass container in the fridge. I wrap it in a tea towel within the countainer. Kinda feels like your tucking it in for a nap ❤️😂. Keeps it super fresh for roughly 5-7 days depending on the type of lettuce. Give it go and let me know how you find it 🤔

Soaking them nuts! 💪🏼
You might have noticed my excitement in my stories - I made almond milk last night and can I tell you... It's the BOMB 💥Let me know if you'd like the recipe? In other news I prepped some almonds and walnuts for general consumption over the weekend. Currently in my luteal phase and walnuts are suggested as they aid in improving metabolism and alleviating mood (PMS moods are a thang am I right?!). To ensure you get all the good stuff from your tasty nuts make sure you soak them for at least 12 hours. Rinse them and then bake over night on the lowest heat. If you don't bake you have the risk of these beauties going mouldy. Pictured are my hot nuts out of the overnight oven. In case you didn't know soaking ensures you remove phytic acid. Phytic acid can be found up to 9.5% in nuts. The acid impairs our bodies absorption of seeds amazing minerals. It's a natural defence mechanism for seeds! This is particularly important for vegetarians and vegans who get a lot of their minerals from seeds 🌱

Tumeric elixir, perfect for the menstrual phase as it's a whole body decongestant. Tumeric is an #adaptogen - anti inflammatory and boosts your immune system. The amazing yellow root is fat-soluble, so the use of coconut milk and oil helps to increase its benefits 🙏🏼See previous post for recipe 🔥Golden Latte 🔥It's 40C in my hood today so rather then having this hot I've poured it over ice. YUM!

Simple and satisfying. With a farmers market visit scheduled tomorrow my fridge is looking a little bare. I always have gluten free bread alternatives and cooked frozen lentils in my freezer. With a quick blitz of chickpeas and other ingredients I've made fresh hummus. The wraps are 99.5% corn tortillas (0.5% sea salt) found at my organic shop warmed briefly on a griddle pan. Plus some organic cucumber, tomato and radish found in a sad fridge. Cycle syncing that's gluten, dairy and soy free doesn't always need to be fancy feasts. Happy Saturday friends, I hope your day is recharging and restful at this busy time of year 😘 #vegan

Today called for a big spring clean of my home and fridge. I roasted organic broccoli and home grown capsicum. Super easy! Simply chop the veg, toss with a little olive (or preferred) oil, s&p and coconut aminos. Roast in hot as you can oven for 10-15 minutes. Keep an eye on them cause they crisp up quick! I added this to my dinner and have left over for the weeks salad bowls ❤️

Working from home today means I can enjoy lunch in my back yard with a side of home grown bay leaf 🌿. I'm often tired and grumpy at the end of my luteal phase - means working from home is ideal, I can stay comfy and get stuff done! Current mood calls for an easy fresh salad bowl. Ingredients are all luteal (except olives 🙊) and help my liver and large intestine flush out hormones before the menstrual phase commences. All organic and sourced from the farmers market 🍍 In my bowl is cucumber, fermented cabbage, radish, celery, homemade hummus topped with sunflower seeds and olives for something salty.

Once week I give myself a clay face mask. It's all natural and only clay - I only use natural beauty and house products to limit hormone disruption {organic as much as possible}. While it dries on my skin, about 15 to 20 minutes I give myself a dry body scrub. Multi tasking never felt so good 😊. Clay draws out impurities while giving a deep cleanse as well as soothes the skin. It detoxifies by buffing away dirt and leaves a soft complexion. I 💗 pink clay in particular. It contains Silica which assists in improving elasticity of the skin. It also helps to remove blackheads while promoting a radiant complexion. I find mine at my local health store. It's not expensive and a little goes a long way. I use 1/4 of a teaspoon to 1 teaspoon of water. Time to rinse my rosey dried clay face and apply my organic rose hip oil before counting 🐑 Night all 😴

Sunday for me usually means stocking up my kitchen with phase specific organic yummies from my local farmers market. I have about a week to go of the luteal phase and I'm stocked! Ultimate self care is providing foods my body truly needs. Lunch to celebrate included luteal phase specifics being cucumber, radish, fermented cabbage, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds and sweet potato. Sweet potato helps flush the body out excess estrogen in preparation for menstruation as well as much more. Also I have olives, home grown tomatoes, home made  babaganoush and hormone free eggs all on a bed of lettuce. Happy Sunday all, I hope your week ahead brings exactly what your mind, body and hormones need 🤗

Sunday sleep in calls for a pre farmers markets smoothie. I wanted to incorporate cucumber; it helps the liver cleanse and flush out excess toxins and hormones. Being in my luteal phase this is super important for my hormones as I want them to slowly drop and reduce in concentration leading into the menstrual phase. This smoothie is sweet, creamy and rich. You can change mango to another fruit like strawberry or apple if your sugar sensitive. I'm not and it's in season where I live ✨ Here's how I made my green luteal smoothie ✨
Blend the following organic ingredients: 1 tablespoon of sesame seeds, 15 almonds (good for calcium), 1 cut Lebanese cucumber, hand full of baby spinach, 1/4 of an avocado, 1/2 teaspoon of honey, 1/2 teaspoon of royal jelly (optional), 3/4 of a cup frozen mango, 1/4 of a cup pomegranate seeds and 1 cup of coconut milk. Hope you enjoy the creamy green goodness 💚

✨ Luteal Bowl ✨
After a soul nourishing weekend away under the stars it's nice to be home, stock the fridge with organic yummies and prepare a phase specific bowl. The luteal phase leads into the menstrual phase and is a time for clarity and surrender. We are extremely intuitive during this phase. Our hormones reach their peak and the drop right before bleeding. Foods high in water like cucumber, daikon and celery help the body get rid of excess hormones. I've also made a navy bean dip topped with sunflower seeds. Navy beans are perfect in the luteal phase as they are a great source of B Vitamins which help regulate blood sugar and in turn hormones. I have home grown tomatoes and fermented cabbage helpful for gut health to feed the good guys in my tummy. The purple salad is leftover from the weekend away and includes sweet roasty beetroot and quinoa. My organic lunch is perfect fuel for an afternoon of gardening. I'm adding some indoor plants to my home to freshen up 💚 Happy Monday all 🤗

📍Seed Cycling 📍
Cycle syncing can be overwhelming. Personally I found seed cycling a great place to start, an easy way to make a small change. The two main hormones that regulate a women's cycle are estrogen and progesterone. Estrogen increases in the first half of your cycle and then declines in the second half. Progesterone increases during the second phase. To have balanced hormones you shouldn't experience PMS, cramps, acne or irregular cycles. Including different seeds during the first and second half of your cycle is a method that can help our hormones to naturally re balance. Assuming you have a 28 day cycle from day 1 - 14 have a tablespoon or 2 of flax seeds and/or pumpkin seeds. These seeds are high in omega 3 improving cell membranes. They also block excess estrogen and support progesterone production and release in preparation for the second half of your cycle. On day 15 - 28 add 1 to 2 tablespoons of sesame and/or sunflower seeds. These seeds are high in omega 6 and help to block excess estrogen. They also help our liver to detox and flush out hormones. I have been seed cycling for roughly 4 months and I have a regular, predictable period. In conjunction with lots of changes I have no period symptoms. This is how my journey to cycle syncing started. My seeds are raw and organic and I add them daily to smoothies, sprinkled on salads, soups, dips or roasted veggies. **Humidity and warmth shorten a seed's shelf life and benefits. Best stored at the top of the fridge**

☕️ Alternative coffee recipe ☕️
Pre farmers market tonic with a side of organic apricot. I am OBSESSED with dandelion tea at the moment. It reminds my mind and body of coffee - on old favourite pre concerned about hormones. Today's goodness is blended with a honey, royal jelly, reishi, lions mane, ashwagandha, cocunut milk and cocunut oil (for creaminess). All organic of coarse! Such a soothing and comforting blend to start my day 💕 Dandelion is a powerful liver tonic assisting the body to flush hormones, perfect as I start my luteal phase. Ashwagandha is amazing for stress relief and hormone balance. Reishi stimulates immunity. Lions mane 🦁 is amazing for the brain by improving brain health and increased cognition. Royal 👑 Jelly is the queen 🐝 nectar and offers B and C vitamins as well as minerals and amino acids. My side of apricot, well a strong dose of vitamin C and sweet flavour to balance out the bitterness of my brew.
**RECIPE**
Add 1.5 teaspoons of dandelion root to boiling water and allow to sit for a minute.
In a blender add:
1/2 teaspoon honey , 1/2 teaspoon royal jelly, 1 teaspoon cocunut oil, 1/2 teaspoon reishi, 1/2 teaspoon ashwagandha, 1/2 teaspoon reishi and 1/2 teaspoon lions mane. Strain dandelion tea into the blender. Blitz briefly and pour into a mug. 
Add as much coconut milk (or milk of preference) as you like and enjoy. I add about 2 tablespoons. If your not accustomed to consuming mushroom powders or ashwagandha it can be a little bitter so add more honey as desired. I hope you enjoy this powerful tonic💃🏻

Life's for living and enjoying special moments with your loved ones. Food creates memories 💚 When I first started following the @floliving protocol I was super strict with what I ate. Everything HAD TO BE organic with no gluten, dairy, canola, soy, caffeine or processed sugar. While I try as much as possible to stick to the protocol there are times where I say yes to certain foods - I want to truely live my memories and not create stress with restrictions. I am confident that eating right 80% of the time means my body can handle the 20% of exceptions. In my opinion trust and listen to your body, it's yours and only you know what's best 🤗. Personally I know caffeine created havoc on my hormones and I choose to avoid it all times. My body responds reasonably ok to dairy so now and then I have a little goat or sheep cheese. Following the protocol has been life changing for me. I recommend all woman learn about their 5th vital sign (our period❣️). We are so fortunate to have it. I have learnt how to have a regular period without PMS, cramps and breakouts through the foods I eat and the way I take care of my mind and body 🌸

Mid cycle goodness 😋
Earlier this week I made a simple eggplant, capsicum, passata and asparagus bake. It made 3 serves. Arriving home late tonight I have simply warmed it and placed it on a bed of garden grown chard. On top we have organic corn, garden basil, spring onion and a boiled egg. 
In the middle of your cycle you want raw and quick to digest veggies so you can easily metabolise and eliminate excess estrogen. Lighter carbs like corn have antioxidant properties and assist your blood vessels to function at their optimum. Free range, hormone free eggs are always a good idea 💡They are rich in all amino acids (perfect protein!) and contain B vitamins as well as minerals zinc, iron and copper plus much more ✅

Self care Saturday 💕
After a 20km bike ride and calming bath.... Comforting red lentil dahl - like a big warm hug. So filling and nutritious. Full with aromatic cinnamon, turmeric and cumin as well as organic vegetables being tomato, capsicum and kale. Topped with my home grown sprouts 🌱

Red lentils offer protein and fibre. They also improve digestion by alkalising the body and balancing pH level. This super food is especially important if wanting a healthy flo as red lentils assist in managing blood sugar. Optimal levels result in a well functioning endocrine system and in turn support the bodies hormones 🙏🏼

Oh Mmm Geeeee! Buckwheat, gluten free pancakes drizzled in honey, layered with almond butter and topped with fresh organic strawberries 🍓Holey mumma this is good! I found a dry ingredient box in my local health food store - added oat milk, water, egg, cinnamon and voila 👌 Strawberries and almonds are current cycle phase recommendations. Almonds bring all the calcium while strawbs are packed with vitamin C, fibre and antioxidants. In fact they are amongst the top 20 fruits in antioxidant capacity 👊🏼 Hormone health tastes and feels good.

New phase new bowl! Officially half way through my cycle. This next phase calls for raw veggies for fibre to help the body eliminate excess estrogen. Lighter carbs like carrot, corn and quinoa are important to promote easy and healthy blood flow for the reproductive system. Here I have an organic bowl filled with raw veg along with a black eyed bean dip topped with sesame and sunflower seeds as well as babaganoush for that smokey flavour. Meeting my bodies needs and taste bud cravings never gets boring with cycle syncing. Happy Friday folks 💕

🍆 BABAGANOUSH RECIPE 🍆
Smokey smokey goodness! Preparing for the second part in my cycle which calls for sesame and eggplant or the humble aubergine. Sesame seed lignans assist in balancing excess estrogen. Eggplant is an excellent source of dietary fibre. It offers vitamin B1 and B6 as well as potassium, copper, magnesium and manganese. Eggplant is also rich in antioxidants 👊🏼. I struggle with the texture of this veg and find blitzing it gives me all the flavour and nutrients with out that stringy sensation.
RECIPE:
Cut 1 large organic eggplant in half and place on a roasting tray with 2 cloves of organic garlic (left in their skin). Roast in a hot as possible oven for 20 - 30 minutes. You want it to soften and wrinkle on the outside skin. Leave to rest and in the meantime add the juice of half a lemon, 1.5 tablespoons of olive oil (feel free to use oil of your preference), 1.5 tablespoons of organic unhulled tahini paste (choose unhulled for more sesame seed nutrients), salt and pepper and 4 spring onions. Add squeezed out roasted garlic and scoop the inside of the eggplant into the mixture (metal spoon works a treat). Blitz as much or as little as you like depending on your ideal texture. You may want to add more s&p, check for seasoning. Perfect addition to salad bowls and such a comforting flavour. I'd love to hear if you enjoy 🤗

When your smoothie matches yours nails 💕
I have a smoothie every morning and mix it up depending on where I'm at in my cycle. Currently I'm in my follicular phase and leading into the ovulatory phase. Raspberries and zucchini are suggested so in they go along with mango, royal jelly and reishi! In my smoothies I always add 1 cup of calcium fortified dairy free milk {I love cocunut or almond}. Being a dairy free vegetarian it's important to make sure I'm getting enough calcium. Our bodies need 1000mg per day. 1 cup of fortified milk brings over a third of the daily calcium dose at 300mg. Along with bone health this mineral helps your heart, nerves and muscle function at their optimum - crucial for a healthy flo. I'm heading to my local farmers market this morning to fill my fridge with lots of organic yummies for the week ahead 😋

Eat the 🌈🤔
Red kidney bean dip in the middle, topped with crispy kelp and self grown sprouts. Farmers market veg including broccoli, radish, cucumber, lettuce, fermented beetroot, green olives and cherry tomatoes. Also.. water chestnut from the Chinese supermarket. They have an odd taste somehow so I pop a little cocunut aminos on them and eat with other crunchies like radish. Beetroot, kidney beans, kelp, water chestnuts and coconut aminos are menstrual phase ingredients 🙏🏼 #bowlsbylee

🌿 SEA KELP 🌿
What an amazing seaweed. I have kelp in abundance when in my menstrual phase. This is listed in @floliving protocol and I must say it was hard to find. After lots of rummaging through various products at a Chinese grocer I found it! I bought 3 big sheets for about $5, super cheap. You simple cut it into squares {scissors recommended} and then fry in hot oil until it crisps, bubbles and changes to a brighter green. I then crush it roughly and add it to salads and soups. Super tasty and salty. You can eat it at any stage in your cycle but particularly important when in the menstrual phase as sea kelp replaces minerals lost including zinc, iron, iodine, magnesium, copper and calcium. This has 10x more calcium then milk! Cray! It's also a natural source of vitamins A, B1, B2, C, D and E. Have a try, definitely can't hurt ✅

You know I thought this whole gluten, caffeine, dairy and soy free thing would be so tough and restrictive. 2 months in and I am feeling fab! Waking up bright and bubbly, no bloating or upset tummy, the best skin and predictable energy levels to match each phase of my cycle. These are just some of the positive side effects of trying to create a healthy flo. It ain't dieting when you can eat amazing food like this. Veggie filled corn fritter with red kidney beans, avocado, cashew cheese, parsley purée and a fried egg. Life is 👌

💚Zucchini or Squash 💛
Sunday morning included a veggie haul at the local farmers market. These beauties were picked this morning and are organic and pesticide free! Getting prepared for my upcoming follicular phase. Tonight I steamed then froze these. I'll be adding them to my morning smoothie and won't even notice. Great way to get more veg into my diet. Zucchini's offer manganese, vitamin C, vitamin A, fibre, magnesium, folate, potassium, cooper and phosphorus. I personally don't like the texture. No matter how creative I don't enjoy eating zucchini. Steamed, frozen and in my smoothie gets this powerhouse in my diet without even realising 🙈 Have a try, super easy to prepare.

🔥 Golden Latte Recipe 🔥
In a stainless steal pot add 1/2 cup of organic dried tumeric, 1 cup of water and 1.5 teaspoons of cracked pepper. Place on low to medium heat. Using a metal whisk stir for 5 or so minutes until you form a thick paste. Remove from the heat and whisk in 5 tablespoons of organic cold pressed coconut oil. I store in a sterilised air tight container in the fridge. To make the latte simply warm 1 heaped teaspoon of paste with 1 cup cocunut or almond milk - I personally prefer cocunut. Add 1/2 a teaspoon of honey as desired and heat with a whisk until warm. Transfer to a mug and add a sprinkle of organic cinnamon. Voila! 
This is an amazing restorative beverage. When waiting for Aunt Flo to arrive and growing impatient I drink this and guaranteed she arrives within a few days. Whole body decongestant keeping the channels clear. Tumeric is an #adaptogen - anti inflammatory and boosts your immune system. The amazing yellow root is fat-soluble, so the use of coconut milk and oil helps to increase its benefits 🙏🏼

Colourful bowl with all the goodness 😍 Menstrual phase ingredients include wild rice, water chestnuts, ginger pickled beetroot plus red kidney bean dip (in the middle) topped with kelp, flaxseed and pumpkin seeds. Non phase food but still offering all the good stuff are cherry tomatoes, cucumber and steamed brocollini. Underneath is a bed of leafy lettuce dressed with cocunut aminos. Yum yum and so satisfying if I do say so myself ❤️ #bowlsbylee
