Hormone Balancing Foods

Hormone health is critical to how every area of life goes forward. You deserve to have everything great happen for you at work, in relationships and in life. I have found that  by eating more hormone balancing foods, I feel betterHormones should be a graceful wave, ebbing and flowing through the month. In women, the luteal phase before a period is especially susceptible to challenges. If hormones are not flowing gracefully, you might face problems. Are you on the constant search for hormone balancing foods? I think that you’re in the right place!

Do your need hormone balancing foods?

Your endocrine system requires the support of proteins and fats. It can then maintain blood sugar balance, adrenal balance and hormonal balance. One of the ways that you can be full of energy and have a balanced mood is to eat hormone balancing foods.

Do you struggle with your hormones?

As a woman, you probably might struggle with cravings, low energy, insomnia and mood fluctuations during the luteal phase. I had deep benefits by working on my blood sugar balance and hormone balance through food and lifestyle. Hormone balancing foods are deeply supportive to better mood, energy and health. This is a great indulgence. I have found it deeply beneficial and supportive to better energy and even better moods.

As you keep seeing all my recipes, I have three stars of the show. In this case, it’s dark chocolatehazelnuts and raisins. Remember my mantra, which is enjoy food from concept to creation to consumption! You really want to bring your awareness. Intention matters. If you think that your hormones needs some support with a great hormone balancing food, try this simple recipe, loaded with brilliant ingredients.

Let’s breakdown the ingredients of this recipe before going into it:

This hormone balancing chocolate hazelnut cream is a wonderful indulgence when you are craving chocolate and something sweet. Are you premenstrual? This is a great treat!

  1. Dark Chocolate– Dark Chocolate is a rich antioxidant, powerfully fighting oxidative stress and supportive to energy. It is rich in magnesium which helps during the luteal phase for women. It could also play a key role in brain health! I consider it a hormone balancing food. Do be cautious with dark chocolate. Although it might seem to be portrayed as a super food, it is also very high in histamine. I have  a problem with it due to skin conditions and allergies. For more information on vitamins and minerals, read my e-book!
  2. Hazelnuts–Hazelnuts are rich in healthy fats, and loaded with magnesium and calcium. Both minerals are required in higher amounts during the luteal phase. It is heart healthy and good for your skin, bones, joints, muscles and dgestive system. The healthy fats makes this a hormone balancing food.
  3. Raisins–This natural sweetener is especially good for hormones because they ease constipation and optimised hormone metabolism. When they are combined with healthy fats and proteins, it maintains stable blood sugar. They are rich in vitamins, minerals, fibre and pack a punch, provided they are used moderately.

If you have chronic fatigue, then you do need to consider deeper root causes. You can read about root causes to chronic fatigue here. Always remind yourself that food is medicine!

Truth is tricky. It’s so easy to try a new diet or protocol and slip into denial over symptoms that arise. A classic version of this is missing a period after intermittent fasting but trying to ignore it. For a woman your cycle is as vital in information as a lab test!⁣


Have you tried a new diet or protocol and ever convinced yourself that it’s working for you just because you’ve lost a lot of weight? Weight loss has become the highest parameter of efficacy even when there is chaos happening within which can include and not limited to:⁣

💛Frequent headaches ⁣

☸️Dysfunctional cycle⁣

💮Low iron or B12 within few months⁣

💜Frequent fevers and coughs⁣

💛Bad skin⁣

☸️Poor quality of sleep even if you are sleeping nine hours⁣

💮Mood fluctuation that includes anger, sadness and overwhelm⁣


Weight loss should not be enough if all this is happening as well. Health should come before anything else.⁣

Fasting is great! But I’m seeing a lot of people who are unable to get benefits from this ancient practice. My guess is that this has a lot to do with sequence, present diet, level of stress and what’s happening within their body.⁣


Some of the indications that the specific fasting approach you are following is not working for you are:⁣

💙Feeling more stressed and having poor resilience to stressors around you. This can include feeling weepy, angry or overwhelmed.⁣

💙Struggling with fatigue and forcing yourself to get through the fasting period irrespective of tiredness, dizziness or giddy.⁣

💙One of the greatest signs of impact is struggling with sleep. This can include inability to stay asleep and not being able to stay asleep for enough time.⁣

💙Not getting a period when you have always had a perfect cycle is a huge red flag. If your body thinks that it’s a state of emergency it shuts off reproductive function and you can miss ovulation and menstruation. I’ve actually heard women say they are happy about missing a cycle but this is really dangerous!⁣


Does this mean fasting is not good? Far from it! I call the fasting approach that I use in practice as Strategic Fasting. This refers to using fasting techniques in specific ways at specific times with specific foods in the feeding window. It can be immensely therapeutic provided you bring it in correctly. ⁣

It’s so strange that so many women do not place stress as the greatest root cause of all their menstruated challenges. One episode of high stress can wreak havoc on your hormones and impact the flow of your cycle. This is why you’ll have an early period, a later period, no period or a heavy period after you’ve had an argument with someone or a bad day at work.⁣


🌸The reason for this is that your body takes cholesterol and produces both cortisol which is the stress hormone and progesterone which is your sex hormone. ⁣

🌺When your body thinks that it is a state of emergency then it shuts off non essential functions including the production of sex hormones. ⁣

🌸Instead it prioritises the production of your stress hormone cortisol. ⁣

🌺This means you can go a whole cycle without ovulation or making progesterone.⁣

🌸This makes you stressed, anxious, unable to sleep, overwhelmed, depressed and a whole lot more!⁣


Women’s health and women’s bodies are beautiful spaces where there is harmony deep within. Your body just tries to help you when something is off. The beauty is that you can bring everything back on track with the right steps in the right sequence. If you want to guide your health back to harmony, reach out!⁣
