A Hormone-Supporting & Gut-Friendly Whipped Feta, Roasted Beets & Walnut Salad

whipped-feta-roasted-beet-and-walnut-salad

Would you like a hormone-supporting, anti-inflammatory recipe? 

Of course you would! At least, your hormonally shifting body certainly will appreciate it.

So, deck the halls. We’ve created a delicious anti-inflammatory, hormone and gut-friendly salad for Christmas this year.

But seriously, it’s so good you’ll enjoy it any time.

And, once you’ve tried feta whipped, you’ll never want to have it any other way again.

We used goat feta because it’s easier on the digestive system but if feta’s not your thing swap it out for goat cheese.

And for Christmas (or again, anytime) add some gorgeous brightly-coloured pomegranate seeds. We couldn’t find any that’s why they’re not taking a starring role on ours.

Ultimately, it’s a divine dish which also serves up a nice dose of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.

It also gives you the added benefits of omega-3 essential fatty acids from the walnuts and olive oil.

In addition, the beetroot and greens deliver lots of lovely gut-loving fibre and you get protein from both the feta and the walnuts.

There’s lots of box ticking going on here, right? 

We easily polished ours off between us so if you’re feeding more people, simply double, triple or quadruple your ingredients!

Whipped Feta, Beetroot & Walnut Salad

Serves 2

Ingredients:

  • 1 x 200 gram block Goat Feta cheese
  • 2 x medium roasted beetroot
  • 1/2-1 cup of raw, unsalted walnuts
  • 3-4 cups loose lettuce leaves or liver-loving rocket
  • 1 x bunch fresh thyme
  • Freshly ground sea salt and black pepper

For Christmas punch or anytime: add the beautiful jewel-like colour of highly nutritious pomegranate seeds which are rich in antioxidants and fibre.

Dressing:

  • 1/4 cup EVOO – extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup Apple Cider vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • Freshly ground sea salt & pepper

Method:

  1. Chop the beetroot, drizzle with olive oil and fan bake for 30-40 minutes until nicely roasted.
  2. Pop the feta cheese into a blender or food processor with a dash of olive oil and whip (you’ll never have cubed feta again!)
  3. Arrange the lettuce or rocket leaves on a plate or in a bowl and top with feta, beetroot, walnuts and (if using) pomegranate seeds.
  4. Finally cut some thyme and sprinkle over top with freshly ground salt and pepper and drizzle with dressing.

Bon appetit!

We hope you love it as much as we do.

Post-menopause


This is the time when menstruation is well and truly over, the ovaries have stopped producing high levels of sex hormones and for many ladies, perimenopause symptoms subside.

Estrogen has protective qualities and the diminished levels mean organs such as your brain, heart and bones become more vulnerable. It’s also a key lubricant so your lips may become drier, your joints less supple and your vagina might be drier. In addition, your thyroid, digestion, insulin, cortisol and weight may alter.

At this juncture, a woman might experience an increase in the signs of reduced estrogen but she should have a decrease of perimenopause symptoms. That said, some women will experience symptoms like hot flushes for years or even the rest of their lives.

Perimenopause

Peri = ‘near’

Most females begin to experience the symptoms of perimenopause in their mid-forties. Your progesterone levels decline from your mid-30s but it’s generally from around 40 that the rest of your sex hormones begin to follow suit. 

Perimenopause is a different experience for every woman and some women may barely notice it. The first indicators are usually changes to the monthly cycle. This means that for some ladies, this can be accompanied by things like sore breasts, mood swings, weight gain around the belly, and fatigue as time goes on.

For those with symptoms it can be a challenging time physically, mentally and emotionally.

Importantly, perimenopause lasts – on average – four to 10 years. The transition is usually a gradual process and many women enter perimenopause without realising.
