Whereas on my preconception journey I’ve actually began to be extra aware of my protein consumption. Protein just isn’t one thing I ever take note of as I do know I get sufficient simply by consuming entire plant meals however studying in regards to the elevated wants of protein in being pregnant has made me extra conscious of little methods to spice up protein consumption in my meals. currently I’m including cashews to my silken tofu yogurt for additional protein and fats and I adore it! It’s extra satiating and the feel is creamier too. I really like the cashew tofu mixture as a result of each are good sources of the amino acid tryptophan which is required to construct the neurotransmitter serotonin and melatonin. Tryptophan is claimed to be probably the most beneath consumed amino acid of all. Though I discuss diet for hormone well being, the reality is that our hormones are merely an extension of our nervous system and it’s fairly laborious to have balanced hormones if our neurotransmitters are out of kinds.

three frozen nectarines (recent work too however frozen makes it style like ice cream)
1 300g packet silken tofu
2 tbsp maple syrup
1/three cup uncooked cashews
Drop vanilla

Mix and serve. Topped mine with crushed chocolate biscuit from a failed cooking experiment and cherries
