Why raw carrot salad you may wonder? Through my journey of infertility due to endometriosis I learned about Dr. Ray Peat’s raw carrot salad which has many health benefits. But the one I was particularly interested in was how the raw carrot salad binds excess estrogen and excretes it safely out of the body. Estrogen dominance is something many women struggle with.

As per Dr. Ray Peat the raw carrot salad cleans the intestine thus helping to prevent overloading the liver with toxins. The liver is responsible for detoxifying excess estrogen. The raw carrot salad can help to prevent the re-absorption of excess estrogen and help with digestion. It also has anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties.

You will need the following:

2 medium carrots (shredded)

1-2 tablespoon vinegar (I like to use Apple Cider Vinegar)

1-2 tablespoon coconut oil

Salt to taste

I like to use a little bit of fresh lemon juice as well

If you are a busy mum like me then shred a big batch of raw carrots at the start of the week and have it all ready to go whenever you feel like a snack! Your gut and liver will thank you
