The Importance of Period Food.
by Kirsten F.
For me it happens the week before I start my period, that instinct to find and hoard all of your favorite foods. In my case, that would be mangos, pizza, celery, peanut butter and s'mores flavored granola bars. Sometimes the occasional apple fritter and key lime pie find their way onto that list too. Now I don't know about you ladies, but when that moment clicks in my head I go into a sort of nesting mode. I check out for a week, and get to be with myself and all of my favorite things.
Period food is my sense of comfort when I'm laying in bed with my tea and my hot hands. (Seriously hot hands were sent from heaven, and you can wear them anywhere.) I'm apart of a pretty bad ass ladies group on Facebook. So I reached out to my girls to ask what their favorite period food is. These women lit up with excitement to talk about what brings them comfort during a time where we get to physically cleanse our bodies in a sometimes draining way. These foods may be sugar filled, natural, or it may just be a fruit but they all have one thing in common. They make us feel good and we should be proud of what brings us joy, can we spend this year doing that? Just celebrating what makes us happy, and be an unstoppable force.
Think about that this week gals, and do what makes you happy! Check out this list of women who get real about their period cravings!
