Golden Milk Quinoa Porridge

This anti-inflammatory breakfast is one of my favorites! It's cozy, filling, and rich with flavor. I'm always looking for more ways to introduce different breakfasts into my diet so that I start the day off on the right foot, and with this, I know I will! It's inspired by one of my favorite cafes in Seattle (Fulcrum Cafe) where I first fell in love with golden milk oats.

Ingredients for your ovulatory phase: quinoa, turmeric, pistachio, coconut. During the ovulatory phase, estrogen and testosterone surge, so you want to eat foods that help your body balance out the spike in estrogen and support the heart.

Quinoa is one of my favorite foods to incorporate because it’s health benefits can be listed on forever. It is packed with iron, fiber, protein, and all nine essential amino acids. It also doesn’t spike blood sugar, which helps with mood, and some studies show it can help balance cortisol levels. 

Pistachios are rich in antioxidants, which is key to helping your liver metabolize excess estrogen. They also have trace minerals for lots of key micronutrients like magnesium, iron, zinc, calcium, and more.

Coconut is great for ovulation because it contains essential nutrients such as B vitamins, zinc, and phosphorus which are vital nutrients for healthy ovulation.

Turmeric is anti-inflammatory, and reducing inflammation in the body through food and stress reduction is one of the most important things you can do to aid your body in the process of creating and excreting excess estrogen, or generally maintaining balanced hormone levels. Antioxidants also help promote liver function, which is a key part of estrogen balancing. Make sure you always mix turmeric with black pepper to help your body be able to absorb the benefits of turmeric.
