Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. You can give love to yourself and someone else this year with one simple shift we absolutely LOVE here at SHE: switch to buying FAIR TRADE, organic chocolate.
So when Keurigs and other single-serve coffee makers hit the market in our fast-paced, who-has-time-for-sleep-let-alone-time-to-brew-a-cup-of-coffee world, it looked like a life-saver. And it was, for our coffee fix. For the planet though? Not so much. In fact, not even a little.
Did you know that you can change your health, but more importantly someone's life (especially women) just by the coffee you buy? Yes, really! And how is this possible? By buying fair-trade coffee. Yes, as SIMPLE as that! One simple SHIFT to fair-trade coffee (even better, that it is also organic, but that is a whole separate post!) changes lives.
Ladies, how much of your life do you write off because you know you’re going to be in the middle of PMS, potentially lying on the couch and eating chocolate? A whopping 75 percent of women suffer from headaches, mood swings, bloating, and other symptoms due to their hormones.
Eating the combination of different seeds throughout your menstrual cycle has been shown to improve hormone balance. This practice is known as seed cycling. You rotate different seeds depending on where you are in your cycle. You can start this at any time just as long as you are choosing the correct seed combo for where you are in your cycle.

So what are good fat choices and how do they affect your hormone balance?
