Sweet Potato, Parsnip and Kale Soup for Estrogen Dominance

A great way to support your colon during this autumn season is through eating fiber from root vegetables, which are abundant at farmers’ markets from autumn harvests. The sweet potatoes and parsnips in this “Sweet Potato, Parsnip and Kale Soup with Coconut Milk,” make eating enough fiber easy- peasy!   How Does Fiber Help Hormone Balance? Adequate fiber from vegetables in the diet has been shown in studies to decrease excess hormone levels, particularly estradiol, the form of…

I have been keeping this one a secret for years, planning on saving it for my cookbook… however, I am bursting to share…

Summer Beet Salad for Liver Support

The liver plays a crucial role in hormone balance. A liver that is functioning well, will both manufacture and metabolize hormones. It is the ultimate detoxifier, filtering everything we put into our bodies from food, liquids, alcohol to even what we breathe in and absorb in our skin.  The liver breaks down excess hormones such as estrogen (preventing estrogen dominance) as well as testosterone, (preventing high levels that contribute to issues like PCOS). It does this by creating…

The Moon Cycle & Menstrual Cycle Connection

  Ever wonder why you and many women bleed on the new or full moon? Or perhaps you have wondered the energetic connection of bleeding on a particular moon phase…   Studies show that peak rates of menstruating (releasing the lining) and ovulating (releasing the egg) are on the New and Full Moon.   Why? To understand this, we must first understand the fluctuations of the moon phases and the menstrual phases.   The moon rotates around the…

{Cooking Video} Vegetarian Chili for Blood Sugar Balance

Ever wonder why we get terrible food cravings?   Or perhaps you have wondered how to support your progesterone levels? (Truth: cravings & progesterone levels are related!)   …low progesterone is a common factor leading to estrogen dominance related issues such as intense cramping, PCOS, fibroids, endometriosis, cysts, and even Moonpausal symptoms.https://youtu.be/aGnYHRVW0ww   Often I share about the role of Blood Sugar Balancing foods in balancing hormones like progesterone.   Today, I am giving you a full virtual demonstration…

Yoni Egg: Magick of Manifestation

Sensuality. Connection. Shakti ACTIVATION. Manifestation.   These are the words that immediately flow into my consciousness when I think about what this exquisite feminine practice has done for me.   This practice has been around for millennia. In ancient China, women used the practice of inserting an egg shaped crystal made out of Jade into their yoni, the Sanskrit word for vagina that I find super juicy to use as part of my vocabulary.   Quite commonly known,…

Chai Chocolate Macaroons

When at home in our routines, it may be easier to find our grooves with eating balanced meal plans.  Yet, traveling and gathering with family and friends for big holiday meals that include decadent desserts, extra cocktails, and hors d’oeurvres, can throw off those routines and cause a bit of havoc on the gut-microbiota from additional sugars and carbohydrates that break down quickly  (think cakes, stuffing, and mashed potatoes from white potatoes). After the holidays are over, we…

Sweet Potato Mash for Menopause: Reduce Dryness & Weight Gain

Menopause, or “Moonpause” as I like to call it, is an experience of great hormonal change, requiring specific nutrients to support changes in sex hormones. Two common symptoms of moonpause that women experience are vaginal dryness and weight gain, particularly around the middle. Moonpausal changes as well as society’s negative imprints of “losing your youth” can cause negative feelings toward this sacred change, which is truly a “Rights of Passage.” “Like pregnancy and childbirth, menopause is a time…

Aphrodisiac Tonic with Lemongrass

After 5 years of birth control contraceptive use, I realized my libido was absent… a symptom that many women end up experiencing from long-term birth control use. The birth control contraceptive can increase the production of Sex-Hormone Binding Globulin levels (a protein in your liver that binds to sex hormones like testosterone) which can lead to lower testosterone levels and eventually, low libido. The pill can actually change genetic expression within the liver to create more SHBG. Furthermore,…

Top Five Foods that Decrease Menstrual Cramps

Severe period pain, or dysmenorrhea, that causes you to cancel work, lie in bed all day, or prevents you from doing your normal daily goddess activities is NOT normal. I reflect back to the days I was in college when I used to experience these pains. My diet was made up of typical dorm food: lots of pizza, sub sandwiches, bagels for breakfast, bags of chips with trans-fat, lots and lots of sugary cookies, too much beer and…

Zucchini Pasta for Fertility Support

Fertility is sensual and playful… and if you are trying to boost your fertility, why not add some playfulness into your kitchen? Making zucchini noodles reminds me of playing with Play-Doh- That’s why I love spiralizing zucchini noodles for gluten-free pasta! This recipe is completely raw-vegan, meaning the pasta sauce is made fresh in a high-speed blender and the zucchini noodles are eaten raw (although you could choose to lightly sauté them if preferred.) More-so, zucchini is high…
