Do you feel like you’re consistently lacking energy but can’t sleep well either? Are you experiencing weight gain, new skin conditions, bloating, low libido, anxiety or depression? These could be clues that your hormones are out of whack–and no amount of calorie counting is going to get them in check. Luckily, a proven way to balance your hormones is by using food as medicine. And great news, some of the most powerful hormone balancing foods might already be in your pantry!

It is CRAZY how much of what we eat impacts our hormones (aka our body’s natural blueprint for wellbeing). Yes, friend–your gut microbiome plays a HUGE part in it all! To dive into the specifics, like the individual foods that make the biggest difference in hormone health, listen to this Healthier Together Podcast episode with Dr. Aviva Romm. She answers your biggest questions, like:

  • what hormones are and why they matter for women
  • common signs of hormone imbalance
  • how to care for your hormones to boost energy
  • ways to support hormones to lessen anxiety
  • how hormones impact weight gain
  • steps to optimize fertility
  • natural remedies for PMS
  • and more!

Whether you’ve been diagnosed with hormone imbalance or just aren’t feeling right, these hormone balancing recipes inspired by my Ask the Doctor episode with Dr. Aviva Romm will equip you with smart eating choices from breakfast to dessert. Oh, and if you’re on your period and need some relief, check out my Period Survival Kit with all of my wellness essentials to get through this time of the month!

best dinners for hormone balance

Lunch & Dinner

For hormone balancing lunches and dinners, macro bowls are a great way to get get in the nutrients that keep our bodies’ production of chemicals flowing smoothly. For PMS symptoms, Dr. Aviva Romm specifically recommends eating more whole grains about five days before your cycle because that’s when a natural serotonin drop happens! Also, you want to make sure you’re eating lean proteins and healthy fats, which are the building blocks of all hormones, and probiotics, which help restore the gut microbiome!
