Jicama Wrap Tacos

Taco Tuesday but make it gluten-free! Or if you can't find jicama wraps - you can use a normal tortilla and it'll still be delicious.

Ingredients for your follicular phase: chicken, avocado, lime, and lettuce. During the follicular phase, your metabolism naturally slows down, so you want to eat foods that are easy to digest and aid liver detoxification to ensure estrogen buildup doesn't occur in the gut.

Chicken is a follicular phase food because it is high in choline, which is an important mineral for fertility. It is also high in vitamin Bs and minerals such as zinc - which is needed for follicle development- and magnesium - which is important for metabolizing estrogen. Since magnesium is at its lowest during the follicular phase, it's important to maintain healthy levels of it at this time. Lastly, chicken is high in protein (even more so than beef!) which helps regulate blood sugar levels. But also, your body is most easily going to build muscle during this part of the cycle, so load up on protein to ensure you're providing your body with what it needs!

Avocado is a great source of healthy fats, with high levels of Omega-3s, which are shown to reduce FSH levels and are anti-inflammatory which helps curb inflammation. They are also associated with increased progesterone levels, promote ovulation, and optimize hormone levels. They are also very high in fiber, which helps our bodies flush out excess estrogen.

Lettuce is good for follicular because it is high in fiber content, which helps your body detox and eliminate excess estrogen.

Lime, 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.
