Salads prepped for a few days. I like to make the main salad and dressing, then keep them separate until ready to eat. This one is cabbage, kale and green onion from the garden with oranges. And in the case of the carrot salad, marinating in the vinaigrette only makes it better.

Take note: women's bodies change! The way we fuel them needs to change.It's no secret that women's bodies change in perimenopause and post menopause, and what we use for fueling needs to change with our bodies. But that doesn't mean that you need to get rid of what you love. 🙅‍♀️
.
In perimenopause and after, women become more sensitive to carbohydrates and have more issues digesting them. Additionally, our insulin resistance to carbs outside of training increases. So does that mean the end of bread and pasta at dinner?
.
Not necessarily - although the emphasis does need to be on the QUALITY of your carbohydrate. Consider eating a fermented sourdough bread and swapping the traditional wheat pasta for a pulse pasta so that you have more protein versus carbohydrates. Try swapping your rice bowl with a base of quinoa or leafy greens. Add more fruits and veggies as your carbohydrate outside of training. Carbohydrate choices are essential - choose nutrient-dense, complex carbs.
.
Changing hormones require a change in diet to get the most out of your body. Changing hormones does not mean that you can't still enjoy how you fuel. 🍴
.
What's your favorite food swap that you've made? Are there any that you were surprised to love? Let me know!

I've been looking forward to taco night all week, so I could make this fresh peach and avocado salsa! So yummy! I added spring onion, cilantro and gold cherry tomatoes from the garden.

Lovely brunch made and served by my daughter: mushroom and feta fritatta with fruit and yogurt. Why does it feel special when someone cooks and shares with you?! Food made at home does that!
