My favourites are Sage & Lemon Balm tea, restricting coffee, alcohol and nicotine goes well with a clean eating, healthy lifestyle.
I regularly use red beets in my diet – either chopped into salad or shredded in wraps and an essential ingredient to my daily veggie smoothies.
I’ve found smoothies the easiest way to get the 5 minimum and ideal 9 vegetables every day. I go for any dark green or red veg, then add a little fruit from thin skinned berries.
My research has led me towards raspberries, grapes and blueberries for fruits.
The vegetables I use are spinach, avocado, broccoli, kale and sweet bell peppers.
For nuts and seeds- to increase the Omega 3 content- I’ve been adding a mixture of linseed, sunflower seeds and goji berries. I quite like the crunch the seeds give.
I add a clean protein powder to one smoothie and have it as a snack, the other daily mix I have either after my high protein breakfast or mid morning.
Try it they’re delicious. Its too early to know if they help with menopause symptoms. But, I will let you know how I get on.
Now, I’m off to make sage and lemon balm tea!!
Eat Clean. Live Well. Feel Great!
