Seed Cycling Power Balls - Color Coded!

This is one of the easiest Sadhana/practices to add to your monthly meal prepping.

One for Brian one for me!

We have been seed cycling for a while now. We both follow the lunar cycle and this was just a natural addition to our practices. It is a natural way of restoring hormonal balance. The seed hulls have lignans which will improve hormonal movement throughout the body. The oils in the seeds are full of essential fatty acids that are the foundation for steroid hormone production. The precursor to the entire hormonal process.


For those new to seed cycling start with determining when the Moon will be New and when it will be Full. I have an app on my phone.


Seed rotation can be followed with the cycle of your period; starting on day 1-14take a tablespoon each of flax & pumpkin seeds.

Day 15-28 take a tablespoon each of sesame seeds & sunflower seeds.

If your cycle is allover the place or if you have stopped menstruating follow the cycle of the moon, Either way this practice will help you to connect with the rhythms of nature. From the New Moon to the Full Moon - take a tablespoon each of flax and pumpkin seeds. From the Full Moon to the New Moon - take a tablespoon each of sesame and sunflower seeds.

Guys can practice this too. They just need to take the opposite rotation during the Moon cycle.

The seeds can be ground up and put in soup, salad, casserole, stir-fry or added to smoothies.


Making the Seed Cycling Power balls once a month is a practice that assures our successful ingestion of our required nutrients. In the morning we usually focus on super hydration while breaking our intermittent fasting - the power ball is a great option and full of protein.

The recipes below are very lightly sweetened feel free to increase the amount of dates or add a little maple syrup or other natural organic sweetener if you like. Making them different colors make it easy to recognize the one that you need.
