OVULATION PHASE CYCLE
So yesterday I went to the farmers market for some raw veggie and fruit meal/snack options for me this week. My list was a little short, mostly because I grow my own food! At least trying to! I would love to one day grow everything I eat. And to be able to provide for my family table that way. Not only does it bring me peace of mind about who touched it, how it was grown, and where it came from. But it’s also therapeutic, cheaper, and at the end of the day extremely rewarding.
So I told you, you should stick to raw veggies and fruits but why? We need raw veggies for their high fiber intake, and raw fruits for their high levels of glutathione. Both help with our metabolism and help keep our estrogen level down.
When your estrogen levels are to high you experience the following - Bloating
- Swelling or tenderness in the breasts - Fibrocystic lumps in the breasts
- Irregular periods
- Low lido/ low sex drive - PMS
- Mood swings - Headaches
If any of these symptoms start to accrue during this cycle phase, snack on some fruits of veggies. Have a glass of water. Breath, evaluate, and fix the problem. It will always get better!
