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 πŸ™πŸΌSee previous post for recipe πŸ”₯Golden Latte πŸ”₯It's 40C in my hood today so rather then having this hot I've poured it over ice.

Ovulatory quick dinner- Buckwheat pita ( didn’t have corn tortillas) topped with tuna and roasted paprika sauce, kale and tomato on the side.
It is light but nutritious and therefore suits Ovulatory phase 😊

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 πŸ™Š) 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. Underneath is a bed of mixed lettuce drizzled with olive oil and lemon. It's so important to listen to YOUR body. If your not feeling it make life easy for yourself and have no guilt. Guilt ain't good for anything inc hormones, self care erryday damn day πŸ‘ŠπŸΌ

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 πŸ’— 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 πŸ‘ Night all 😴

✨ 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 πŸ’š Happy Monday all πŸ€—

β˜•οΈ Alternative coffee recipe β˜•οΈ
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 πŸ’• 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 πŸ‘‘ 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 tonicπŸ’ƒπŸ»

Mid cycle goodness πŸ˜‹
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 πŸ’‘They are rich in all amino acids (perfect protein!) and contain B vitamins as well as minerals zinc, iron and copper plus much more βœ…

All the greens 🌿
Starting the week with gluten & dairy free buckwheat toast, 1/4 organic avocado, salt and pepper, lemon juice and home grown sprouts 🌱 
Buckwheat is a fruit seed related to rhubarb. It contains manganese, copper, magnesium and phosphorus. The nutrients in buckwheat may contribute to blood sugar control, vital to those wanting a regular and healthy flo. Avocado is loaded with healthy fats with no cholesterol or sodium. This wonder fruit provides vitamins K, C, B5, B6 and E. Finally sprouts which contain fibre, manganese, protein, iron, phosphorus and potassium. So much goodness in just a few (large πŸ˜‹) bites ❀️

Self care Saturday πŸ’•
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 πŸ™πŸΌ

πŸ† BABAGANOUSH RECIPE πŸ†
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 πŸ‘ŠπŸΌ. 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 πŸ€—

When your smoothie matches yours nails πŸ’•
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 πŸ˜‹

Preparation is key πŸ”‘.
I have all day training today which I'm facilitating. Working on a Saturday ain't fun but when you can organise the catering (flo living friendly) and bring your own caffeine free tea it's not so bad. I have almonds to have with my morning tea. Almonds are high in calcium, contain lots of healthy fats, are high in protein, fibre, magnesium and vitamin E. My little home made tea bag has organic ashwagandha root, raspberry leaf and nettle which is perfect for the follicular phase as it tonifies the uterus, remineralises the body and balances hormones to bring in the new cycle. I have organised hummus and veggie sticks for morning tea, Vietnamese (rice) noodle bowls for lunch (I'll skip the tofu and bring in my own eggs), and fresh fruit for the afternoon. Happy Saturday friends πŸ€—. For those not working may your day be filled with self care that's individual and perfect for you ❀️

🌿 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 βœ…

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!

πŸ’šZucchini or Squash πŸ’›
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 πŸ™ˆ Have a try, super easy to prepare.

πŸ”₯ Golden Latte Recipe πŸ”₯
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 πŸ™πŸΌ

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

Menstrual phase is here and what a deliciously satisfying Asian inspired soup! All the seaweed with kelp noodles and kelp crisps plus shiitake mushrooms, coriander, peas, capsicum, broccolini, fried eggs, chilli, ginger, garlic, lemon, miso and an asian broth. Wowza, I will be making this again! Seaweeds are particularly important in your menstrual phase as they contain loads of vitamins being A, B1, B2, C and E! It's full of minerals needed when menstruating like iodine, zinc, magnesium, potassium and calcium. In fact it contains the highest natural concentration of calcium of any food - 10 times more than milk! Shiitake will bring you more B vitamins as well as reduce inflammation which is vital for those cramps. On a side note I would never ever have eaten anything like this months ago. Cycle syncing has introduced me to whole arena of amazing food and I am so grateful πŸ™ŒπŸ»

I ❀️ asparagus. On a hot grill or fry pan I heat these organic beauties with a little coconut oil plus salt and pepper. Once cooked I squeeze a little lemon over and voila πŸ‘Œ They don't need long just watch for them to lose their stiffnes and they're done - 2 to 3 minutes depending on the size. Asparagus is particularly important during the ovulatory phase however great at all times of the cycle. They offer a great source of fibre, folate, vitamins A, C, E and K. Asparagus helps with blood sugar too as is contains chromium which is a mineral that assists insulin to transport glucose to our cells.

Ash wa what?! This amazing herb has been incorporated into my daily smoothie. I add half a teaspoon and while the taste is strong with plenty of fruit it can be masked. Initially I added cacao but now used to the flavour. You can also add it your favourite tea however let it settle as drinking straight away gives stronger flavour. Ashwagandha is an adaptogen and assists with stress - something we all have in our lives at times. I work in a particularly stressful job and have found this calms both my mind and body. It can lower blood sugar, reduce cortisol and fight symptoms of anxiety. Blood sugar levels and keeping cortisol in check are particularly important for us ladies wanting a healthy endocrine system with a regular and healthy flo. If you haven't tried this give it go? I suggest adding it for at least a fortnight before you reap the benefits. If you find the taste strong start with 1/4 of a teaspoon and build your way up to 1/2 a teaspoon. You can find it in your local health and organic store both in powder and root form. Enjoy✨

😴 morning routine 😴
Upon waking I have a glass of warm water with a tablespoon of organic apple cider vinegar including 'the mother'. It contains potassium, acetic acid and malic acid. Drinking this daily can help the body eliminate toxins and assist in cleansing the digestive tract. It is also antiseptic in its nature and can clear congestion. Have a try and see how it impacts you after a week or so. It's a sour taste and you can add a little honey 🍯. After a couple of days you'll be used to it. This product is amazing and I also use it as a salad dressing, a face toner and part of my home cleaning products.

🌿All hail the mighty kale 🌿
Craving kale chips 🍟 I'm in my luteal phase, kale is designated for menstrual phase but I'm listening to my body which flo living encourages! Kale and other cruciferous vegetables like broccoli contain goitrogens. Goitrogens can interrupt iodine metabolism and therefore slow thyroid functioning. Not ideal if your trying to regulate your cycle or have healthy hormones. Cooking cruciferous veg removes goitrogens - the more you cook them the better! Kale is an excellent source of vitamins A, B, C, E and K as well as fibre, manganese, copper, calcium, potassium, iron and omega-3 fats.

βš“οΈNAVY BEANS βš“οΈ
According to flo living the luteal phase calls for navy beans. Look familiar? They are used in baked beans! They offer dietary fiber and are a good source of both folate and manganese. These beans bring many minerals to the body including copper, phosphorus, magnesium and iron. In addition, navy beans are a great source of protein and vitamin b. During the luteal phase your body especially needs b vitamins to regulate hormones and blood sugar. I will be making these organic super food beauties into a yummy dip for my salad bowls. Would you like the recipe?

✨Dry brushing ✨
I can't wait to get started on this after finding this beautiful brush. It's actually a fare trade potato scrubber (shhh..). The size and bristles feel just right on my skin. I'm going to start tomorrow morning and continue daily after my shower starting at the feet and working my way up in a circular anti clockwise motion. Dry body brushing helps shed dead skin cells (and encourages new cell renewal), resulting in smoother and brighter skin. It assists in improving vascular blood circulation and lymphatic drainage which is much needed when living in the flo.

Loving my #greenjuice these days! Great for assisting the liver and endocrine system flush toxins. Also wonderful for the skin. Green juices are filled with antioxidants, phytochemicals and minerals. When vegetables are juiced, the natural sugars in the vegetable are separated from the pulp, which is where the fiber is located - still need your whole veg! This one is full of #organic #celery #apple #spinach and #cucumber. Three out of four are necessary in my current cycle phase, the #lutealphase. Happy Friday friends πŸ’š

✨Luteal Phase✨
As part of cycle syncing I incorporate #vegetables suitable for each stage. The #lutealphase is the lead up to the #menstrualphase where women's bodies have the highest peak of #estrogen, #progesterone and #testosterone. Foods that support the liver and large intestine to flush out hormones are crucial. #Cauliflower supports the natural elimination of toxins from the liver, increases the body’s natural metabolism of hormones and helps maintain normal hormone levels. I ❀️ it #steamed then #frozen and added to my morning #smoothies. Hot tip πŸ€“steaming cauli before freezing ensures it doesn't lose its vitamins and liver assisting qualities πŸ‘Œ

Dandelion latte and vegan black #sesame slice for today's pick me up πŸ’ƒπŸ»Being on the Flo Program something I often miss is coffee. Coffee and caffeine can be detrimental to women's hormones. 1 cup of coffee can mess with your #hormones for 24 hours. It depletes essential #nutrients and minerals from our bodies.

Cleaning improves digestion, taste, and the health of internal organs. Cleansing the tongue enhances the sense of taste, and because digestion begins with taste, this alone supports the entire digestive process. Looking forward to incorporating this into my daily routine to see the benefits πŸ€”

Four of the most important being #protein , #omega3 , essential #fattyacids , #zinc  and #vitaminE  😍. #floliving  #foodloveovaries  #cyclesyncing  #vegetarian  #glutenfree  #dairyfree  #soyfree  #happyhormones  #eattherainbow  #ovulatoryphase 
Fresh #organic #vegetables sourced from the local #farmersmarket and made into a scrumptious (if I do say so myself πŸ™‹πŸ») #omelette!

Holidays mean rest and recharge. Plenty of time for #selfcare. I gave myself a face mask today with two parts water and it's currently cracking on my skin. #ClayMasks can improve the circulation of the skin, remove dead skin cells, and give the skin an overall healthy glow πŸ‘Œ#floliving #toxicfreebeauty #toxicfreeliving  #cyclesyncing #foodloveovaries
One thing I love about holidays is finding local a #healthfoodstore and taking my time to roam through the beautiful produce. Bought some #organictea and fresh #organic vegetables to stock my fridge. Yum πŸ™ŒπŸ»

I (conveniently) left my face wash and #moisturizer at home for my holiday. I had fun yesterday hunting some local #organic products. Hand made with my favourite #essentialoils, #chemical and #toxicfree with no #endocrineblock ingredients πŸ’• #cyclesyncing #floliving #foodloveovaries
Fortunate to be on holidays. Harder to stick to the @floliving suggestions but found these in the local health store after a smoothie breakfast. 80/20 so haven't stuck to the rules completely but life's also for living and enjoying. #sweetpotato #organic #floliving #cyclesyncing #foodloveovaries #glutenfree #soyfree #dairyfree
Best #tea before bed, always so relaxing 😴 Helps the body settle. Love @pukkaherbs πŸ€—  #floliving #foodloveovaries #cyclesyncing

**ROASTED BROCCOLI**
Lightly #roast #organic #broccoli for 5 to 10 minutes (depending on your oven) after adding per cup of broc... 1 tablespoon of #cocunutaminos, 1 tablespoon of #coconutoil or #avocadooil and seasoned with #saltandpepper. Get on it! Perfect addition to a salad bowl, breakfast plate or with other roast #vegetables. Broccoli is a great source of vitamins K and C, a good source of folate and provides potassium, fiber. This is perfect for the #follecularphase but I add them anytime πŸ™Š

#Redkidneybeans are a great source of #iron helping to replace what's been lost in my #menstrualphase. Will make a simple dip out of these #organic beauties.

Steaming #organic #artichoke for this weeks salad bows. A great #vegetable to strengthen the #liver which plays a crucial role in the #endocrine system!

I'm in my #menstrualphase which includes seaweed as a food to help replenish #iron and have been craving something crispy and salty. These #roasted #seaweed snacks have hit the spot!
