Protein Boosted Keto Brownie
A ketogenic diet consisting of low carbohydrate alternatives with moderate protein and fat is renowned for helping people to lose weight as it supports the liver to burn stored fat in a process called lipogenesis. A ketogenic diet can also help lower your blood sugar, blood pressure, and improve your insulin function, all of which are critical in reducing inflammation and improving health. Additionally, it increases energy, regulates appetite, and enhances cognitive performance!
Hormone Balancing Maca FlapJack
Glorious fats are the building blocks of hormones and this flapjack is packed full of them in its walnuts, almonds, and various seeds. The Phytoestrogens, Omega 3, GLA, Zinc, and vitamin E in these specific seeds help to stabilise oestrogen levels and promote progesterone if needed. Gut health is vitally important for ensuring your hormones are in check. Cranberries help to feed some of our most beneficial microbes whilst oats aid in balancing blood sugars and providing fibre which helps to move things through our system whilst catching all those oestrogen metabolites on the way. Maca is an amazing adaptogen herb that has the ability to adjust our hormones as needed, therefore a perfect ingredient for a hormone balancing snack!
