This is a dinner recipe that will make both your taste buds and hormones rejoice! What do you say about the combination of marinated chicken with oven-roasted potatoes, sweet potatoes and carrots, pesto and feta cheese sauce? Ten out of ten we say. This is a meal that contains the building blocks you may need to balance your menstrual cycle.
The cornerstones of hormones in balance
A simple lunch/dinner that contains a mix of protein, fat and complex carbohydrates + cruciferous vegetables that contain fiber that helps the liver get rid of leftover and used hormones. A meal that grounds you regardless of the day of the month! If you have e.g. PCOS, we recommend eating the potatoes cold and filling up on cruciferous vegetables
Optional root vegetables, we used:
Marinade for about 2 portions:
3-4 tbsp tamari soy
3-4 tbsp olive oil
1-2 teaspoons of honey
1 teaspoon sambal/chili
1 clove of garlic
Feta cheese sauce:
1/2 crumbled feta cheese
2 tablespoons of pesto
2-3 tablespoons of Turkish yogurt
Salt and pepper
Do this: Turn on the oven at 175 degrees. Slice up the root vegetables and place on a plate with a little drizzled olive oil, dried herbs, salt and pepper. Slice the chicken, mix the marinade and pour over the chicken. Fry/grill the chicken. Mix the sauce together. Make another good salad if you have time and stuff at home! Tip, use crunchy vegetables and squeeze lemon and olive oil over the salad!
