Quinoa Kefir Porridge

Let's talk about kefir. Kefir is a fermented milk, known for its high nutritional content and high levels of probiotics, even more so than Greek yogurt. It's also great for gut health and digestion, so if you are looking to create a healthy gut microbiome, this recipe is for you! This quinoa kefir porridge is high in protein, fiber, and probiotics - all the key pieces for a healthy digestive tract.

I keep cooked quinoa stocked up in my fridge during my ovulatory phase, so that I can quickly whip up a nutritious breakfast like this! Full of protein and probiotics - it’s a great way to start the day. But if you don't have it cooked, step 1 will be to cook quinoa!

Ingredients for your ovulatory phase: kefir, quinoa, raspberry, 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.


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

Kefir is a fermented milk, known for its high nutritional content and high levels of probiotics, even more so than Greek yogurt, as well as for its gut health benefits. This is great for the ovulatory phase because as estrogen peaks we want to ensure our digestive tract is strong enough to properly metabolize our estrogen and flush it out.

Almonds (and almond butter) are great for follicular because they contain high levels of omega-3s. High FSH levels can lead to menstrual problems including PCOS, and omega-3s are shown to reduce FSH levels. They also have high levels of dietary fiber and contain magnesium.

Raspberries are high in fiber, and are anti-inflammatory which are two important things to incorporate into the ovulatory phase. Help your body flush out excess estrogen by reducing inflammation, allowing your organs to work effectively, and feeding your gut microbiome so that it can efficiently eliminate waste!
