5 Foods for a happy period!
Your monthly cycles are something you have got to live with for decades altogether. So why crib endlessly about it? Make it a happier time by eating right and feeling better. Optimize your energy and relax your mood swings by eating these foods on certain days.
From days 1 to 5, you are emotionally sensitive. Magnesium-rich chow (spinach, whole grains) and foods with omega-3 fatty acids (salmon, sardines, walnuts) are known to steady your nerves.
On days 6 to 13, rising hormones insulate you from stress, so you will find it easier to eat healthfully. So it is the ideal time to load up on fruits and veggies and go for that ideal diet fitness experts talk about.
During days 14 to 17, almost all of your senses are heightened, including that of taste. Indulge in fabulous gourmet foods, such as cheese, lobster, beef, and good wine.
Days 18 to 23 is when the progesterone hormone peaks and the bowel slows down. High-fiber dishes like brown rice, barley, and vegetables combat constipation while keeping your energy up.
Finally, by the end of the month, PMS calls for comfort food, so be smart and pair your favorite carbs with protein to stabilize your blood sugar. Ice cream is your best bet in this case, as it's sinful and satiating.
