Cabbage belongs to the brassica family and these vegetables are powerful supporters in detoxification in your liver. The avocado provides good fats to ‘feed’ your ovaries. The coriander and mint aid digestion and liver functions, as well as taste great! There’s plenty of fiber found in the lentils, which help to keep both the liver and gut happy, leading to happy balanced hormones.
