Easy Garlic Hummus

I make hummus quite often at home, and each time I make little edits to my recipe. And this time, I finally perfected it! Hummus is an art, not a science, so feel free to take this and turn it into what is "perfect" for you :) I make my hummus in the blender - I love the Vitamix but any high-speed blender or food processor should work.


This recipe is perfect for the luteal phase; largely made up of garbanzo beans, tahini, and pine nuts. 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.


Garbanzo beans are great for luteal because they are high in fiber which helps flush out excess estrogen, but also high in vitamin B6 which aids progesterone production. It's also a good source of plant-based protein - and protein helps stabilize blood sugar which can help balance your mood as you go into your menstrual phase.


Tahini is a luteal phase food because it's essentially just sesame seed butter. Sesame seeds (therefore tahini) are high in zinc which is crucial for progesterone production and simultaneously flushes out estrogen.


Lastly, sesame seeds are high in vitamin E. Vitamin E is a natural antioxidant, and also has been shown to increase the luteal blood flow which lengthens the time of your luteal phase.
