High Protein Buckwheat Pancakes

No protein powder, lots of protein! With 31g of protein and 10g of fiber - these pancakes are about to be your new breakfast obsession. I eat them whenever I’m on my period because the high levels of protein and the use of buckwheat stabilize my mood and keeps me full! Buckwheat is a superfood - loaded with antioxidants and fiber, it’s gluten-free, and has a lower Glycemic Index score than white flour, so it doesn’t spike my blood sugar. So for my PCOS or cycle-syncing girlies, or if you just like high-protein pancakes, try these bad boys out.

This recipe is perfect for the menstrual phase because of the buckwheat and blueberry. During your menstrual phase, you want to focus on warm, comforting cooking methods to warm up your uterus. From the nutrition side, 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.

Menstrual Cycle Syncing Meal: Roasted Beet Spring Salad

Though wheat is in the name, buckwheat is actually naturally gluten-free, and has a lower Glycemic Index score than white flour (55 instead of 85)! It is considered a superfood, so I like to use it wherever possible. It's loaded with antioxidants, is high in fiber, and may aid blood sugar management.

Blueberries are great for the menstrual phase because they help reduce inflammation! They also contain iron, calcium, zinc, and magnesium.
