Banana Date Nice Cream

Banana Date Nicecream has been a staple in my household since I can remember. So I always forget that it's not a common recipe in the US, and I'm often the first person to introduce this to my friends. But without fail, it's a recipe that people really love, so give it a try!

Now that I've gotten into cycle-syncing, I've also realized how great this is to balance my mood during the luteal phase!

Ingredients for your luteal phase: walnuts, dates, cinnamon. During the luteal phase, you want to focus on fiber-rich foods to support the large intestine in flushing out excess estrogen and consume nutrient-dense food as your body's metabolism naturally speeds up.

Dates are high in antioxidants and fiber, two important nutrients in the luteal phase. Fiber aids the liver in flushing excess estrogen out of the body while antioxidants help battle inflammation.

Walnuts are high in fiber, protein, and magnesium, but are also high in omega-3s. Our body cannot produce omega-3s on its own, so it's important to consciously add them to our diets. It's vital for our overall health, but also for our hormone balance as it aids the production of progesterone.

Cinnamon's health benefits may surprise you. Research has shown that cinnamon can enhance the body's capacity to control blood sugar levels and decrease insulin resistance. According to a study conducted at Columbia University, women diagnosed with PCOS who incorporated cinnamon into their diets experienced more consistent menstrual cycles compared to those who received a placebo.
