Bulgogi Tacos with Cheesy Corn and Carrot Beet Slaw

This is our take on bulgogi tacos! We absolutely love eating tacos, but every now and then we try a new fusion to see how it works. And I think this fusion was one of the best we've made. The cheesy corn and the beet slaw really complement the grilled meat. It's the perfect dance between sweet and savory! So whether you're making this for a weeknight dinner, or to impress your guests - this is a recipe worth trying.


Ingredients for your menstrual phase: beef, beets, carrots, and sea salt. During the menstrual phase, you want to stock up on micronutrients that are the building blocks of blood. Your hormones are at their lowest levels and energy is low, so keep your blood sugar steady with low GI foods.


I typically like to cut down on my red meat consumption, but beef is a great source of iron and protein which nourishes your body around the time of your period. When you bleed, your body is losing iron very quickly so you want to make sure to replenish this nutrient to maintain healthy levels of iron. It should also curb cravings by regulating your blood sugar and filling you up!


Beets are another great source of iron - which is essential to focus on when you bleed since your body is losing iron rapidly. It's also rich in beta-carotene and antioxidants, which promote the flow of blood to the uterus and reduces cramping.


Raw carrots have been shown to have hormone-balancing effects because they're high in magnesium, but also high in fiber which is key for our gut health - which in turn aids healthy hormone production.


Sea salt is a wonderful source of magnesium! This plays a key role in hormone creation, cortisol regulation, thyroid function, blood sugar balance, and sleep.
