Adaptogenic Sweet Potato Porridge

Eat Luteal Phase

In honor of March being National Women’s Month, I only found it fitting to share a hormone balancing breakfast recipe. It’s warming on the digestive system and packed full of regulating nutrients. Whether you’re an adaptogen pro or new to the game, Maca is one of the most popular hormone-regulating tools. Like all adaptogens, it’s responsible for creating homeostasis in the body. I also love this recipe because there are zero added sugars! Hello, healthy blood sugar levels.

With all of the excess man-made estrogen in the environment, using my silicone Stasher bag to prep this makes it hormone-friendly. It’s so easy to create a plastic-free home with tools like these.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup oats or alternative hot cereal blend
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1 tsp. maca powder
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp. milled flax seed
  • pumpkin seeds + extra cinnamon to garnish

Make

  1. Prep overnight oats by mixing 1 cup of old-fashioned oats with flax seed and 1 cup almond milk and store in an airtight container in the fridge. Let sit until morning!
  2. Either the night before or the morning of, peel, dice, and steam sweet potatoes in a 1/2 gallon Stasher bag until soft to the touch.
  3. Add steamed sweet potatoes to a blender with cinnamon, maca, and a touch of almond milk. Blend on high for about a minute or until a smooth puree is formed.
  4. Top overnight oats with the maca sweet potato mixture, pumpkin seeds, and extra cinnamon.
  5. Enjoy hot or cold!

Herbal Coffee Smoothie
Are you a coffee or a tea person? This question always stumps me. I used to always be a coffee person, but after switching to a less-caffeinated lifestyle, I became the biggest tea-fiend. If you're like me, you miss the taste and smell of coffee. Something about it smells like home. Last year, I found chicory coffee, and let me tell you it has been a game changer! Here's why: It's anti-inflammatory. Because it's made from chicory root instead of coffee beans, it's less acidic. There's zero caffeine! So unlike decaf coffee containing trace amounts of caffeine, you can be sure this is at zero. Chicory may also help decrease blood sugar l ...

Probiotic Coconut Yogurt
I love coconut yogurt, but I lately it's been breaking the bank for me. This recipe is super tasty and will save you tons if you're a fanatic like myself. It's truly as easy as mixing two ingredients! This particular version is super creamy and rich, which makes it a great topping for smoothies, breakfast bowls, and whatever else you can think up (check out this pumpkin loaf I topped it on)If you're looking for a lighter option, try mixing up the coconut milk you're working with.
