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…

Cooking for Hormone Balance {Video} at the Oregon Eclipse Festival

Blessings, Sisterhood Tribe. Many of you followed my journey on Facebook and Instagram out to the Oregon Eclipse Festival where I taught “Modern Goddess Cooking for Hormone Balance” with Nourishment Lab, the live cooking school.   I spoke alongside other traveling chefs, cooking school teachers from the Living Light Culinary Institute in Ft. Bragg, and company owners of superfood products. It was such a treasure of an experience, to be able to share the wisdom of the menstrual…

Pumpkin-Zucchini-Carrot Bread (gluten-free)

Low in sugar, full of protein and completely gluten-free and dairy-free, this bread is an excellent on-the-go breakfast or snack to nourish your goddess-temple! I eat it plain or will spread ghee or coconut oil on top. Part of my hormonal health protocol I use and share with my clients is…

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…

Thai Chicken Peanut Lettuce Wraps

These Thai Chicken Peanut Lettuce Wraps provide an abundance of the amino acid, L-Tyrosine. This was one of the libido boosting amino acids we chatted about in our Juicy Living Webinar last Monday (recording is available if you missed it!) Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. They are necessary for building neurotransmitters, brain chemicals that have an impact on the mood and hormone regulation.  Eat foods with L-Tyrosine for… Lifting the Mood: L-Tyrosine acts as an anti-depressant by boosting dopamine levels. … stress…

Cacao Elixir for Your Inner Goddess

mmmmm cacao… this elixir recipe of the goddess is an herbal tonic for activating your sensual bliss one sip at a time. Sister, it is your birthright to feel sensual in every moment. As women, it may be easier for us to connect with our higher chakras… to our spirituality and to our intuition. (That’s one of the reasons we see a majority of female attendees in yoga class …) Yet, part of this journey of living on this earthly plane is…

Five Healthy Hormone Breakfast Ideas

When it comes to hormone health, skipping breakfast may exacerbate hormonal issues. Conditions like Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), where there are small cysts in a pearl like string on your ovaries, are greatly impacted by blood sugar. Skipping breakfast in the morning or having coffee for breakfast can spike cortisol levels and insulin. With PCOS, there are typically excess androgens, like testosterone. Excess testosterone can give you unwanted rogue hairs on areas of the body like the face,…

Chocolate Cabernet “Cheezecake”

You can have your cake and eat it.  My Chocolate Cabernet Raw Vegan “Cheezecake” was a hit last night at my mother’s birthday party. The whole family came over and we enjoyed this decadent treat in celebration. Beautiful goddess, taking care of your hormones does not mean depriving yourself of the deliciousness of sweets. What it means is eating sweets moderately, and when you do eat them, use natural sweeteners such as maple syrup and dates. As it…

Cleansing Raw Energy Soup

Spring marks a time of renewed energy, growth, and longer days of sunlight. As this season relates to the follicular phase of the menstrual cycle, we experience new ideas with the energy to put them into action, which is associated with the rising estrogen of our inner spring phase. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, the seasons spring and autumn are the best times to do a cleanse, as these are major transitional seasons leading into expansion (summer) and contraction…

How to Make Your Own Sauerkraut

Our hormones are greatly impacted by the health of our gut. If our gut microbiome has been compromised by foods with preservatives, pesticides, and additives, then our digestion may not be up to par to absorb all the micronutrients we need for hormone regulation. For example, leptin, the hormone that controls appetite and tells us when we are “full,” is impacted by the gut. A healthy colony of gut flora increases our sensitivity to leptin, helping us know when to…
