Food Diary Day 31:

Breakfast: Mango menopause smoothie – see breakfast recipe page

Lunch: Mixed prawn salad with green salad, beetroot and adzuki/edamame bean salad and crumbled cheshire cheese – the adzuki beans were particularly delicious – common in japanese cooking, adzuki beans are a good source of  iron, B vitamins, magnesium, potassium, fibre and protein and, of course, phytoestrogens! At least half the plate is vegetables and the rest protein.
