Looking for hormone health support? When you are under stress, a tight schedule, and you serve everyone else’s wishes before your own, it’s hard to get what you need. I offer a helping hand for our readers in this episode.
Here’s where you’ll find all the resources for each episode of the Flipping 50 TV show. If I mention a resource, share a recipe, or give you a special coupon code, I’ll share it or remind you here! Watch the episodes to get to know the featured “guest” question and understand how to make these solutions work for you!
This episode includes exercise options that keep inflammation and cortisol levels down, while boosting relaxation enhancing hormones to provide you with better results. To avoid aggravating already-inflamed joints, choose exercise that strengthens the muscles without stressing those joints and features short bouts of either resistance training or intervals. It’s about assessing the risk-reward ratio. Pushing through the wrong kind of exercise will sabotage your hormone health.
Resistance Training in this episode included:
- Hip Bridges using the ball (to avoid squats and lunges placing more stress on hip joints)
- Bent Over Row
- Chest Press
The Interval Training solutions for short, quick, and effective sessions:
- Aways include a warm up and cool down
- 30 seconds hard and 60 seconds recovery
- Intervals can feature speed or more resistance (on a bike for instance)

Meals-in-Minutes Taco Seasoning
This tastes so much better and is better for you than the packages of extra sodium and chemical flavoring and coloring you buy at the store. The ingredients here actually help boost hormone health instead of robbing you of it!
Taco Seasoning (for 1# of ground meat)
- ½ sweet onion, chopped
- 3-4 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 tsp. cumin
- 1 tsp. oregano
- 2 Tbsp. chili powder
- 2 tsp. sea salt
- Cook ground beef, bison, or chicken adding onions and garlic once eat is almost cooked. Reduce heat and add remaining ingredients. Saute for 3-4 minutes, stirring frequently. Double this for a big crew or freeze half for a quick weeknight dinner.
