Citrus & Chia Yogurt Bowl

The follicular phase is the body's spring, and nothing says spring like citrus! This yogurt bowl tastes as good as it looks. It's packed with flavor and nutrients and is so light and refreshing - making it the perfect spring or summer breakfast. Each serving has 24g of protein and 12g of fiber!

Ingredients for your follicular phase: orange, pomegranate seeds, and chia seeds. During the follicular phase, your metabolism naturally slows down, so you want to eat foods that aid liver detoxification to ensure estrogen buildup doesn't occur in the gut.

Oranges, and citrus more generally, are high in vitamin C and antioxidants which reduce inflammation in the body. But most importantly, they are effective at liver detoxification, and vitamin C helps with iron absorption. 

Chia seeds are rich in omega-3s and are also high in fiber, two important nutrients for the follicular phase. Fiber helps our body flush out excess estrogen and maintain a healthy digestive tract, while omega-3s are important for healthy ovulation. High FSH levels can lead to menstrual problems including PCOS, and omega-3s are shown to reduce FSH levels.

Pomegranate seeds are anti-inflammatory, which is essential during this time of the month, when estrogen is on the rise. You want to help your body reduce inflammation so that you can maintain balanced levels of estrogen. They also contain high levels of vitamin C which helps absorb iron.
