    And
    It’s going to take about 4 cycles for this to feel effortless

    Mini Series: The Big Rocks of Feeling Better in Peri & Menopause. Part 1: FOOD

    No lie…Hormonal disruption doesn’t feel good.
    Makes sleep hard
    Makes libido spotty
    Makes…. What’s the word?! Brain fog
    Makes our bodies respond to food differently than any other time in our life

    And often women come to me asking about vitamins, face creams, seed cycling and the like before addressing the big stuff

    What’s going in your mouth at each meal?

    Hang with me a minute
    I also hear that they’ve been on some diet or food program all their life and they’re done with it…
    Cool
    How about just adding these 3 foods
