Balancing hormones: estrogen dominance

Estrogen is an important hormone for our reproductive health, and in females it helps control the menstrual cycle and is particularly important for childbearing.

Baked falafels

This recipe is quick and really easy to make. It is perfect as a last minute meal, because you can prepare the falafels with cooked chickpeas from a jar.

You know they won’t say no to pasta! 🙂 As a nutritionist however, I also want to make sure I serve a meal that will nourish the body and will provide with essential nutrients.
