Hormone balancing SUPER FOODS

Eat your way to happier hormones with this selection of balancing plant foods


Avocados are rich in monounsaturated fat and folate, both essential for your hormones. Smashed over warm sourdough or tossed into salads are both delicious ways to enjoy this creamy powerhouse. Try cooking with avocado oil, as it has a high smoke point, meaning you keep all the lovely health benefits.

It feels strange calling any particular food ‘super’, as to be honest, anything in the right moment could be considered so. From chocolate ice cream after a nasty break up to a hearty sweet potato stew on a cold evening – both can be considered super if they set your soul alight at that moment. However, this is about hormone balancing, so let’s chat about some of the ingredients that can give you a helping hand. Super foods don’t have to be hard-to-come-by tinctures, sometimes they’re a humble strawberry or a handful of greens.

Liver-supporting dark leafy greens include spinach, kale, cavolo nero, chard and mustard greens – all great sources of folic acid, magnesium and calcium. Cram them into every meal, from a couple of frozen spinach cubes in a morning smoothie to generous handfuls in stews.

Broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage are a few of the most common cruciferous vegetables and are all super easy to incorporate into meals. Grill or lightly steam tenderstem broccoli for a simple side dish and scoff fermented sauerkraut to reap cabbage’s oestrogen-metabolising benefits.
