U dating your kitchen
I can’t go into as much depth as I’d like to in this post, but men and women have different senses of how they’d like to be noticed for things (and what they’d like to be noticed for.) At the root of it, when a man feels like he make a woman happy, he will not want to be in a relationship with her (or if he stays, he will not want to deepen it). Back to neediness: When a woman starts acting needy, especially in the beginning of a relationship, it shows up as the ultimate red flag. Neediness is synonymous with ’emotional dependency’, as in: “This woman is dependent on the guy in order for her to feel good.” Now, sometimes when I start explaining this, I’ll get a comment saying, “Oh so what? You can have it all, too, but what I’m trying to explain in this article is that you don’t get it from it.On the other hand, when a woman acknowledges him for all the things he’s doing well, he will almost certainly want to deepen the relationship and stay in it. We’re supposed to be emotional robots with no feelings or desires and just accept anything a guy is doing without complaint? You create a relationship with those qualities by inspiring those things within the relationship.
We use plenty of ‘hormone-helpers’ in our recipes, from phytoestrogens (the natural nutrients found in plants that mimic the action of our hormones) and B vitamins, to omega 3 fatty acids and mineral-rich foods.
We also recognise that women in particular may need some slow-release carbohydrates — wholegrains and pulses — to help maintain the best balance of hormones.
We love avocados, too, as they contain essential fats which are fundamental building blocks for hormone production.
The slings and arrows of peri-menopause start in your early 40s, perhaps initially masquerading as PMT, before slowly encroaching on other aspects of your life.
This hormonal ebbing and waning can play havoc with moods, sleep patterns and confidence. You might eat and exercise as usual, but fat will start to accumulate in tell-tale places — with muffin tops and bingo wings arriving unexpectedly, like uninvited guests at a party.
