Nourishing Seed Cycling Green Goddess Salad

salad lovers and hormone-loving eaters, this is for you!!

i’m thrilled to introduce you to Nourishing Seed Cycling Green Goddess Salad!

disclaimer* i’m not a doctor, and this is not intended as medical advice. always consult with a healthcare professional to address any specific concerns about your hormonal health :).

we have tender lacinato kale, lightly massaged with a hint of avocado oil, paired with roasted brussels sprouts that provide so much flavor.

add in refreshing cucumber, zesty green onions, crunchy pumpkin seeds, creamy vegan feta, and nutty flax meal—all dressed in a luscious avocado-based dressing.

each bite is truly a celebration of freshness and vitality, leaving you feeling that radiant green glow from within.

but what sets this salad apart is its connection to seed cycling—a natural approach to hormone balance.

now, it’s important to note that while seed cycling can be a beneficial addition to your wellness routine, it’s not a replacement for medical advice.

seed cycling involves consuming specific seeds during different phases of your menstrual cycle to support hormonal health.

if you’re wondering what seed cycling is- this is explains it well! i encourage you do do your own research!

by incorporating both flax seeds and pumpkin seeds into the seed cycling green goddess salad, you’re providing your body with a nourishing blend of nutrients tailored to support hormonal harmony throughout your cycle.

containing both pumpkin seeds and flax meal, is indeed tailored to support hormonal balance during the follicular phase!

for the luteal phase of your cycle, replace them with sesame and sunflower seeds in the salad.

in addition to supporting hormone balance, each ingredient in this salad offers its own nutritional benefits:

lacinato kale: rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, kale provides essential nutrients to support overall health.

brussels sprouts: packed with fiber and phytonutrients, brussels sprouts support detoxification—a crucial process for hormonal balance.

cucumber: super hydrating, cucumber adds a refreshing crunch while delivering vitamins and minerals.

avocado: creamy and delicious, avocado offers healthy fats that support hormone production and absorption.

let’s talk about how to make this hormone-friendly salad.

start by massaging the kale with avocado oil to soften it, then roast the brussels sprouts until golden and crispy.

combine the kale, brussels sprouts, cucumber, green onions, pumpkin seeds, vegan feta, and flax meal in a large salad bowl.

blend up the avocado-based dressing until smooth and creamy, then drizzle it over the salad and toss to coat evenly.

you’re truly going to become obsessed with this salad- it’s such a great one to make every month!
