LEMON POPPYSEED BITE
Lemon me tell you..this raw bite is a DREAM. It’s refreshing and perfectly sweet taste makes it the perfect snack to wake up to, to sneak off to during that 3 pm slump or to savor as an after dinner snack. Estrogen levels continue to rise and peak just after ovulation, so it is important to continue to reach for fiber and antioxidant-rich foods during this phase to support the body’s production of a powerful antioxidant called glutathione, which helps support the liver in detoxifying. This ensures any excess estrogen can be metabolized (read: flushed out so that it doesn’t hang around in your body) and help avoid PMS symptoms. Foods rich in vitamin C, such as lemon, help the body produce more glutathione through recycling. This phase is all about focusing on fresh, vibrant foods to keep your energy levels high. Plus — besides being totally delicious, lemons are high in vitamin C, which helps your body absorb iron. This is a reason to cheer when we're losing anywhere from four tablespoons to one cup of blood every month. Time to replenish.
