5 Foods To Eat During Your Period

Every month we have that horrible time where nothing and no one can make us feel any better. Along with killer cramps and being completely uncomfortable, we may feel bloated and tired and irritable with pretty much everybody. Our cravings will be in full force and while it may seem like we want to eat anything and everything in front of us, this a good time to make some key dietary changes. Small changes may help you feel better and may make this time slightly more bearable.
  1. Ginger. Sipping on ginger tea or eating ginger sweets may reduce or ease abdominal cramping. These can also help with any forms of nausea.
  2. Salmon. Increase in fish oils have been proven to lessen period pain. Omega 3 are a excellent natural anti inflammatory. Omega 3's can assist period pain drastically.
  3. Red meat. This is a massive source of iron. This could be exactly what your body needs. Our loss of blood will always mean we are lacking iron. If you are feeling tired you are generally lacking iron. This can also be found in spinach and beans if you are not a meat eater.
  4. Green leafy vegetables. These may not be your first choice, but they all contain high magnesium which helps cramping. They also contain nutrients that may assist in alleviating symptoms.
  5. Natural probiotic yoghurt. Calcium further assists with menstrual. Also, yoghurt contains good bacteria which supports your digestive system and may help ease bloating.
We know these are tough times. Our aim is to always help you through the good times and the bad. There is always a way to make things a little better, and most of the times it starts in the kitchen.
