Ingredients for your luteal phase: chickpea, garlic, and onion. 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.

Onions are one of the easiest ingredients to add to a luteal phase recipe! They are high in antioxidants, help regulate blood sugar levels, and are a great source of manganese and potassium.

Chickpeas/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.

Garlic is filled with anti-inflammatory properties, and studies actually show that the consumption of garlic helps significantly reduce premenstrual symptoms with a confidence interval of 95%!

Serves: 3 Active Time: 5 minutes Total Time: 20 minutes



  • 0.5 white onion, chopped
