Gingerbread Nice Cream

This is supposed to be dessert but it's pretty healthy and filling, so I could honestly eat it any time of day.


Ingredients for your luteal phase: sweet potato, dates, and ginger. 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.


















Sweet potatoes are a slow-burning carbohydrate, which is a great addition to your diet in the luteal phase when your metabolism naturally speeds up so you may find yourself getting hungrier faster. They are also packed with vitamin B which helps boost your mood and energy levels, which many women find themselves lacking as they get closer to their menstrual phase.


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.


Ginger is a luteal phase food because of its inflammatory properties as well as its ability to alleviate PMS-related symptoms. Studies show that ginger reduces prostaglandin production, which is associated with PMS. It also aids digestion, which helps you feel better - but also helps your gut continue balancing your hormones.
