As I’ve mentioned before, cooking is not my strong suit. That is one reason why I love making salads! Not only are they simple to assemble, but they taste great. Did I mention you can add nearly any topping to a bed of lettuce?
Today on the blog, I’m sharing one of my favorite salad recipes for the follicular phase. The follicular phase is also known as the spring phase of your menstrual cycle. It’s during this time that the body is preparing to release an egg, which happens during ovulation.
Since cherries, sprouts, artichokes, and avocado are all good foods to eat during the follicular phase, simply mix a handful of each ingredient with some lettuce. For the dressing, which is my favorite part, juice half a lemon, and mix with 3 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar and 2 teaspoons of maple syrup. Top off the mixture with some black pepper, and mix it together before drizzling over your salad. Finally, enjoy!
