Seed cycling for Hormones - Follicular Phase

Ingredients

  • 160 g flax seeds I used a combination of golden and regular
  • 160 g pumkin seeds
  • 50 g almonds
  • 150 g dates
  • 50 g oats
  • 1 tsp each Cinnamon and ground ginger

Optional ingredients

  • 150 g cashew nut butter + water to combine you only need this if you are going to roll mix into little bite size balls.

Smoothie Alternative

  • 1 cup Almond milk
  • 1 banana
  • 40 g Seed cycling hormone mix see above
  • 1 Tbls cocao nbs
  • 1 tsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup crushed ice
  • 10 g nut butter optional

Instructions

  • Add the flax seeds to the blender and grind to a rough consistency that's not as fine as flour. This helps with the absorption into your system rather than passing whole through your intestine. Remove from blender and set aside until ready to mix with the rest of the ingredients
  • Add the pumpkin seeds and repeat the about process
  • Add the whole almonds repeat the above process. This time you can leave the nuts in the blender
  • Now add the remaining dates and oats along with the ground flax seeds and pumpkin seeds, cinnamon and ground ginger. Pulse blend until the dates and oats are a roughly chopped consistency. The dates will bind the nuts together a little more giving the mix a slightly wetter consistency.
  • At this stage you can place the mix in an airtight container and portion 40g per day. Add your 40g portion to yoghurt and stewed fruit
  • Alternatively mix in the nut butter and add water as needed to make 28 x 20g round balls. Your daily portion will be 2 balls for 14 days. keep balls in freezer

Smoothie Alternative

  • If you feel like a change add all the smoothie ingredients to a blender and blitz until desired consistency is reached. Enjoy for a quick breakfast. I use this to break my fast.
