I know this isn't strictly about hormone health, but part of my goal for my patients is to help them create rituals of rest that feel nourishing, and to give you options for healthy foods that are delicious and comforting.  These are the things that help to build health for the long term. Also, I am passionate about food, so when something goes well in the kitchen, I want to share it!

I love to bake something for my family on weekend mornings when everyone has a little down time.  It fills the house with a wonderful fragrance and everyone feels like they are being cared for.  Here is a lower sugar, lower starch, higher protein, gluten free, veggie packed muffin that will taste like a treat! If you are avoiding dairy, feel free to use the substitutions I mention.
