Video #4: Increasing Energy and Balancing Blood Sugar
Blood sugar is a bloody important topic, especially when it comes to our cycles. It can affect us in a whole list of ways including irritability and dizziness and is taken up a notch by the current of hormone imbalances that fluctuate within our cycle.
In our last video of the series, Allie dives into the science behind blood sugar and explains how we can help our bodies feel sweet without taking a nose-dive into the land of “I don’t feel so hot”.
This week you’ll learn:
- The symptoms of blood sugar imbalance
- The relationship to cortisol, insulin + blood sugar
- The Hormone Progesterone: What its job is and how it affects blood sugar
- Foods that help you balance blood sugar and balance cravings!
- Why our Matcha bites can replace your morning coffee
- Coconut oil — how it acts as a stabilizer
- The equation for happy blood sugar + happy cycles
This week’s recipe is the perfect on-the-go breakfast option and helps to increase our energy without spiking blood sugar levels. To all the Chai lovers out there, this one’s for you.
Before we wrap up this series, we want to thank all of you for being here. For participating, for engaging, for reading along, for showing up. Self-care and self-love are practices that are forever evolving. They can be damn right hard sometimes and other times as easy as settling into bed after a long day. There is no right or wrong way, no quick-fix and absolutely no “perfect” anything.
But it’s the worthiest thing you’ll ever do.
We hope this month has brought you expansion wherever you needed it most and will continue to flourish and foster a little deeper as you enter into each month. You’re truly amazing beings and we are so appreciative of you all.
With love + a bear hug,
The Moon Cycle Bakery Team
PS: One last hoorah: raising your spirit by doing what you love has a major impact on energy levels. Some climb mountains and others cuddle with their pup while sipping a matcha latte.
