We love leafy greens!
Greens are a fundamental source of nutrition in our @cbdsuperfoodrepertoire. They are packed with incredible vitamins and minerals to support your overall wellness! Spinach is a particularly powerful green vegetable, and a great vegetable to incorporate into one’s cycle-syncing routine!
During the luteal phase of one’s moon cycle, estrogen and progesterone levels surge and then wane. As a result, it is important to consume foods that produce serotonin and are high in magnesium so you can feel energized and joyful amidst these hormonal fluctuations. Spinach is the perfect luteal phase food, and we love finding creative ways to enjoy this yummy vegetable!
This salad is sweetened with candied pecans and strawberries, and doused in a delicious, lemon-poppyseed @cbdsuperfood dressing! Check out the yummy recipe below to enjoy it on your own.
