You’re cramping, you’re moody, you’re tired, and now you’re hangry. Menstruating can make you crave junk food enough as it is, but at this time of day, your blood sugar is falling and you’re at your most susceptible for eating whatever salty or sweet thing you see next.
Instead of reaching for your fourth pint of ice cream this week, why not try eating something that tastes just as good but reduces your problems with Aunt Flo?
We’ve created a series to help you do just that. In each post, we’ll reveal a new dish that’s rich in flavors and fun to cook, but still contains an all-star ingredient that’s fully equipped to fight off your period symptoms. These recipes cover every occasion, so whether you’re:
- unwinding on a weeknight,
- sharing stories at friendsgiving,
- or getting close on the couch with bae—human or canine—for some Netflix,
...you can feel like you’re #treatingyoself all the same while making sure your body gets the nutrition it needs.
Because indulgence doesn’t always have to be a bad thing.
