If you are part of my Fit For Life group on Facebook, then you may have caught my lives in there where I have talked about getting my hormones tested and my testosterone was low! No bueno! 🤪
Symptoms can include fatigue, belly fat, low libido, sleep disturbances, hair loss, decreased muscle mass, decreased bone density, mood changes, memory, low blood counts.
Being low in any of our hormones will significantly affect our quality of life and our longevity.
For now, let's talk about why I am obsessed with the daily carrot salad.
There is further anecdotal evidence that carrots can help bind excess estrogen and toxins and eliminate them from the body.
If you suffer from symptoms of hormonal imbalance, you can give this salad a try to see if it helps. Dr. Ray Peat is given credit for “inventing” the recipe that can help prevent the reabsorption of estrogen.
At the very least, the carrot fiber in this raw carrot salad may help with gut
Here's how to make the carrot salad!
Combine the following:
A raw, scrubbed organic carrot. Grate or peel the entire carrot long ways (yes this is a tedious process but there is a reason)
1 tsp apple cider vinegar. You can also use white vinegar or any type of vinegar. I use coconut vinegar too.
1 tsp of coconut oil or olive oil
Sea salt (like Redmond's Real Salt)
And that's it! I know, it sounds WAY too simple to be good and so good for you but it is surprisingly refreshing and so good before dinner.
If you don't care for making the 'salad', you could just eat a raw carrot daily!
This salad has helped contribute to my A++ digestion!!! If you've ever suffered from constipation or the opposite, like I have, then you know how amazing that is! 😬
I'm actually writing this on Thursday evening so it's time for me to go make our salads now. YUM! 😋
Let me know if you have any questions! Let me know what you think of the 'salad'.
