The key to getting results when it comes to seed cycling for hormone balance is consistency! We have found one of the easiest way to do this is to incorporate the seeds with your breakfast. Below you will find 5 Simple Ways to Incorporate Seed Cycling into Breakfast. Enjoy!

1. Seed Cycle Chia Pudding

Chia seeds are truly a nutritional powerhouse - high in fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, iron, and magnesium. Chia pudding is best made at night; then in the morning, just top with fruit and a scoop of Phase 1 or 2 of The Seed Cycle and breakfast is ready.

Basic Chia Mixture
Makes 250mL / 1 cup

Ingredients:
3 tbsp. or 40g Chia Seeds
200mL Milk of your choice
1-2 tbsp. Maple syrup or sweetener of your choice

Pour the milk into a container or jar. Sprinkle the chia seeds over the top and immediately whisk vigorously. Let the mixture sit for a minute then whisk again. Repeat a few times until the seeds are no longer settling at the bottom. Add your sweetener and whisk again. Place a lid on the container and let the mixture sit in the fridge overnight or for at least 3 hours.

When ready to serve, spoon the mix into your serving bowl. Top with seasonal fruit, nuts, and a scoop of Phase 1 or 2 of The Seed Cycle mix.

You can also incorporate nut butter into your mix, or a spoonful of cacao powder for chocolate flavoured pudding. 


2. Seed Cycle Overnight Oats

Oats are a source of lignans for estrogen balancing - so they’re a great compliment to The Seed Cycle mixes. Plus they’re filling and low-GI so you get sustained energy until lunchtime.

Basic Overnight Oats
Makes 3/4 cup

Ingredients:
½ cup rolled oats (you can replace with quinoa flakes if you’re gluten-free)
½ cup milk1-2 tbsp. pure maple syrup, rapadura sugar or honey
You can either add 1 tbsp. chia seeds to this mix, then top with The Seed Cycle when ready to serve, or you can add your scoop of The Seed Cycle straight into the mix and omit the chia seeds. 

Place all the ingredients into a container or jar and whisk. Cover and place the container in the fridge overnight or for at least 3 hours. 

When ready to serve, spoon the mix into your serving bowl. Top with seasonal fruit and nuts. If you didn’t add your Seed Cycle scoop to the mixture, add this on top of your oats to serve. 


3. Avocado Toast + Seed Cycle
