This Menopause awareness week we have collated our favourite recipes to help ease you through the menopause one delicious and healthy bite at a time.
Who doesn’t love pancakes, even when it’s not pancake day? We sure do, and this recipe is packed full of stabilising ingredients which will keep you satiated and balanced until lunchtime. The main stars of this recipe are the hearty oats and flax seeds which are magnesium rich. This breakfast recipe is also packed to the brim with zinc, iron, lots of fibre and omega-3 fatty acids - helping you to stay balanced throughout the rest of your day.
Tacos are one of those recipes we always go back to - especially these grilled salmon tacos with zesty avocado and tomato salsa. This is a great Friday night dinner which doesn’t compromise on nutrition or flavour. The mix of the crunchy taco shells, with omega-3 rich salmon and zesty avocado salsa is the perfect mix of light flavours. Salmon is also rich in vitamin D which along with Omega 3 are two key supporting nutrients that are essential during the Menopause.
This recipe is another favourite from a friend of Asquith, Liz Earle. Discover her famous menopause cake. With a base of soya flour, soya milk and linseeds to create a delicious almost loaf-like consistency to the cake. Not to mention the inclusion of hormone balancing ingredients like dates and almonds. We love to toast a slice with an afternoon cup of our favourite tea.
This powerful recipe is a must try for helping to relieve any stress and filling your body with antioxidant-rich veggies and protein-rich tofu. We’ve long known of Quinoa's superfood status and it’s one of our favourite ways to bring an abundance of much-needed vitamins like B vitamins, vitamin E and magnesium. This bowl is an overall body-boosting meal which will keep you fuller for longer and help your body to navigate during this somewhat testing time.
