Hormone balancing pesto

When & How

If you are experiencing an irregular/missing menstrual cycle or are heading towards menopause, this pesto is a must in your diet. Sage and pumpkin seeds are two of the most beneficial foods in case of hormonal imbalances and menopause. I recommend consuming it 2-3 times a week for the best results.

You can add it to your salads, on top of your proteins (such as fish or meat), or use it as a spread to your morning toast.    


(2 servings) 

  • 40g pumpkin seeds
  • ¼ cup fresh sage leaves
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast (optional)


  1. Combine all the ingredients in a blender and blend at high speed until smooth. You can add 1-2 tbsp of water to adjust the consistency.



This plant is rich in phytoestrogens, substances that mimic the action of natural estrogens and, thus, increase uterine contractions. Through their action, they help with period and flow regularity.


One of the richest sources of magnesium, a hormonal ally!


Its characteristic sourness supports the liver and optimizes digestion. Lemons are also rich in vitamin C, which exhibits potent antioxidant properties (good against inflammation that might be causing hormonal imbalances) and helps increase iron absorption.
