I love this quick on-the-go salad as it literally requires not much more than placing a few delicious and healing ingredients in one bowl. This is often my go-to quick dinner or lunch. You can have it over a slice of a gluten-free bread, a bowl of grains like rice or quinoa or with a piece of meat.
Sauerkraut can be sour and intimidating if you are just starting out on this journey. Adding fats like avocado and olive oil help balance out this salad and reduce the acidity of the kraut.
I added some broccoli sprouts for their nutritional super powers. Apart from having estrogen- and liver-detoxifying properties, they also contain high levels of sulforaphane which has been linked to be as effective in the management of breast cancer as Tamoxifen, without the side effects.
Sauerkraut contains high levels of vitamin C and B vitamins (much higher bio-availability compared to raw or cooked cabbage) and is packed with probiotics that help rebalance your gastro-intestinal health. Be sure to pick the lacto-fermented form of sauerkraut, typically found in the refrigerated section of the store. You do not want to pick up kraut in vinegar as it lacks any probiotics.

“The body has an amazing ability to heal. We just need to give it the right resources.”
In Overcoming Estrogen Dominance, my goal is to empower and give you the tools to take control of your hormones and health.
More than 70% of women experience estrogen dominance. The symptoms range from lumpy and fibrocystic breasts to thyroid nodules, hot flashes, fibroids, uterine polyps, painful, heavy or irregular periods to infertility and miscarriages, from mood swings to insomnia, weight gain to fatigue.
So many women have experienced the pain and frustration that comes when they feel their symptoms and complaints are dismissed or minimized. This is particularly true for women who are experiencing the symptoms of hormone imbalance. Even when doctors do offer treatment, it’s typically in the form of prescription medication or invasive surgical procedures.
In Overcoming Estrogen Dominance, I hope to show that those extreme interventions are often unnecessary, and to give women a roadmap to reverse estrogen dominance using food, herbs, supplements and natural protocols to rebalance hormones.
