My name is Nicky, aka “Boredom Baker,” and I have created some delicious recipes that also help to ease those annoying menopause symptoms. I mean, who has time for a hot flash when you’re stuck somewhere undesirable for a long time, like on an airplane for several hours?
My feta chicken salad recipe focuses on the benefits of the food to reduce menopause symptoms, and the overall goodness found in leafy greens, legumes and dairy.
Leafy greens are essential sources of manganese, boron, and calcium in menopause—minerals that help to ward off osteoporosis.
Dairy products are also high in calcium, and are a great source of tryptophan, an amino acid that can help to elevate moods and encourage a restful sleep.
And last but not least, legumes are a fantastic, (and delicious!) way to combat dry skin. Legumes are high in Vitamin E and zinc, elements that help to fight skin dryness from the inside.
