Elements of a Hormone Balancing Meal: Tuna Nicoise Salad
This spin on a tuna Nicoise salad by our health coach @bodyblissbyjess is filled with hormone balancing ingredients that will help regulate blood sugar levels, keep your palate happy & boost brain function to help you power through your day! Some of the star players of this salad include: 👇
@safecatchfoods (sustainably caught & tested for mercury): a solid source of Omega 3's which are the anti-inflammatory fats that help improve cognitive function (i.e. keep you sharp & focused). It's also a great source of selenium which is a critical nutrient for proper thyroid function.
The @vitalfarms eggs are pasture-raised which means that each hen enjoys a minimum of 108 sq. ft. roaming room in fresh pastures, with the freedom to forage while enjoying fresh air and sunshine. Studies have even shown that one pasture-raised egg contains twice as much omega-3 fat, three times more vitamin D, four times more vitamin E, and seven times more beta-carotene than eggs from hens raised on traditional feed. You're also getting 6 grams of protein (essential for energy, muscle growth & repair, and healthy ovulation) Source: certifiedhumane.org
Your avocado not only complements the dish in flavor but provides another great dose of omega 3's and fiber - which helps you feel fuller longer, balances blood sugar (so your energy stays up & cravings down), and helps to regulate hormones!
Your salad base is a mix of leafy greens & spinach which are fabulous at helping metabolize and push excess estrogen out of the body which can help to improve symptoms of estrogen dominance!
And finally, the salad dressing is a mix of dijon, olive oil, and lemon juice and when you eat vitamin C-rich foods (lemon) along with iron-rich foods (spinach), you will absorb more of the iron (important for a healthy menstrual cycle)!
