If you want to know what to eat for hormone imbalance, we’ve got the answer. In this episode we share the 1 simple trick to support hormones at every meal: include healthy fat. You’ll discover the benefits of fat, why fat is good for you, and necessary for blood sugar and hormone balance.
Healthy fat is the most missing macronutrient in the average daily diet. Yes, there is no shortage of fat in general, but healthy fat—well that’s another story. Every cell in your body needs healthy fat for proper cellular integrity and signaling. Hormones are synthesized from cholesterol, and one of the ways we get cholesterol is from healthy fat.
Healthy fats, like coconut, avocado, nuts, helps you uptake and absorb fat soluble vitamins (A, D, E, K), which are also important for hormone function! Healthy fats also help to balance blood sugar levels. When blood sugar is dysregulated, so are hormones.
Look to add healthy fat to every meal. This can look like;
- Smoothie with Beauty Collagen Complex, add avocado, cashew butter, and chia seeds.
- Eggs, bacon, avocado
- Salad and avocado
- Freshwater fish, shrimp, olive oil
- Spoonful of nut butter or spread over apples or gluten free crackers
