Creamy Bacon Pea Pasta Salad with a Lemon Parmesan Dressing. Fiber and Protein are important for hormones, crushing anxiety and enjoying sustainable energy levels. Choosing a high fiber/ high protein pasta salad is a great way to enjoy that summertime pasta salad while being mindful of blood sugars.

Hormone Pro Tip:

✔️ Peas contain phytoestrogens, fiber, & a ton of nutrients that are uses by the body to optimize health, reduce inflammation, and increase the number of hormones produced in the body.

✔️ At 25g of protein per serving it provides your body with amino acids that are used to produce specific hormones, like estrogen, insulin, and thyroid hormone (to name a few)

✔️ At 15g of fiber per serving has a positive impact on hormones, helps your digestive functions, and get rid of waste, which includes spent and excess hormones.
