Nurturing Energy and Creativity during your Follicular Phase

Nurturing Energy and Creativity during your Follicular Phase


On day 8 of 28 of the Female Hormone Cycle, we find ourselves at the heart of the Follicular phase. During this vibrant period, our bodies engage in the essential task of preparing for ovulation, driven by the activity of developing follicles in the ovaries. This phase is a testament to our body's natural prowess, readying itself for the cycle's next critical stage and underscoring the importance of fortifying our nutrition and mindset.


Harnessing the Power of the Follicular Phase

During this phase of heightened potential, nutrition plays a pivotal role in supporting our body’s preparations. Bison Trifecta, with its rich blend of bison heart, liver, and kidney, provides a comprehensive nutrient profile that complements this phase perfectly and gives your body a boost to take on each day with an extra confidence.

  • Nutritional Foundation: Amplify Your Energy: The heart and liver are powerhouses of vital nutrients such as CoQ10, iron, and B vitamins, essential for bolstering the body's heightened energy demands. The kidney adds a spectrum of important minerals, crucial for maintaining an equilibrium of health and supporting immune strength, ensuring you remain resilient as you embrace the phase's active demands.
  • Supporting the Body's Preparations: Bison Trifecta's nutrient-rich profile is perfectly poised to prepare your body for what lies ahead. Its substantial iron content is particularly valuable, laying down reserves to counteract the potential blood loss in the menstrual phase, ensuring a smoother transition and lessening the fatigue often associated with menstruation.



As we journey through the Follicular phase, we're presented with an opportunity to fully embrace the increased energy and creativity this time bestows upon us. This phase is all about growth and preparation, pushing us to engage in activities that challenge both our mental and physical capabilities. Incorporating Bison Trifecta into our daily routine supports this dynamic period, providing our bodies with the vital nutrients needed to thrive.



Choosing Bison Trifecta goes beyond mere nutritional supplementation; it's a deliberate act of holistic self-care. By aligning with our body's natural rhythms and offering it comprehensive nourishment, we empower ourselves for the journey ahead. This approach not only prepares us for the subsequent phases of our cycle but also celebrates the remarkable potential and vitality that characterizes each step of this journey. Let's embrace this time of enriched well-being, marking it as a period of true connection with our body's inherent strength and capabilities.




A Ritual of Self-Care: Follicular Phase Energy Bites Recipe

Incorporating mindful practices into our daily routine, such as seed cycling, offers a powerful way to harmonize with our body's natural rhythms. By simply adding 1-2 tablespoons of specific seeds—flax and pumpkin seeds during the Follicular phase, and sesame and sunflower seeds in the Luteal phase—we can gently support our hormonal balance. This practice not only aids in smoothing menstrual cycles and alleviating PMS symptoms but also nurtures our reproductive health, making it a beautiful testament to the power of small, intentional acts of self-care.

To make integrating seed cycling into your routine delicious and effortless, try these energy bites during your Follicular phase:



  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 cup flax seeds
  • 1/2 cup quick oats
  • 1/4 cup protein powder
  • 2 tablespoons cacao powder (optional)
  • 5 Medjool dates, pitted
  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 2 tablespoons filtered water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • A pinch of sea salt



  1. Begin by grinding the seeds in a spice grinder or high-speed blender until finely milled.
  2. Transfer the ground seeds to a food processor, adding oats, protein powder, cacao (if using), and dates. Process until well combined.
  3. Add almond butter, vanilla, and sea salt, processing until a dough forms. Gradually add water to help the mixture stick together.
  4. Roll the dough into one-inch balls and place them on a parchment-lined plate. Refrigerate to firm up.
  5. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to two weeks or freeze for longer storage. Enjoy one ball daily during days 1-14 of your cycle.

This recipe is not just a treat; it's a step towards harmonizing with your body's rhythms, making every bite a gesture of self-care and intention.


As we harness the vibrant energy of the Follicular phase, let this time inspire us to embrace growth and renewal. Embrace this phase as a period of empowerment, where every effort we make enriches our journey towards holistic health. Let the vitality of the Follicular phase illuminate our path, guiding us to live fully and mindfully in each moment.


Let the Goddess in you rise and shine.
