As a woman balancing your hormones should be one of your top priorities. Your hormones not only dictate your mood but they directly impact your weight, energy levels, fertility and more. One of the simplest ways to balance your hormones is by tweaking your lifestyle and up-leveling your food choices. I'm talking locally grown, organic goodness to fill that tummy with the healthiest foods to fuel your hormones. Drinking one of my three hormone balancing smoothies is definitely the simplest way to begin doing just that!
