Periods… yes, those things. Let’s be honest they aren’t the best time of the month. They can often leave you feeling tired, bloated and irritable. In fact, 85% of menstruating women experience one or more PMS symptoms each cycle. Curling up with a blanket and tucking into a tub of Ben and Jerry’s can be want you yearn to do, but in fact, fuelling your body with healthy nutrients to help alleviate these PMS symptoms is the better option! The fatty acids found in snacks such as nuts will help optimise energy levels, boost your mood, and relax mood swings. So steer clear of the junk food and grab a healthy alternative packed with sodium, which will also reduce bloating.
Here’s a PMS reducing muffin recipe from betty and Pip & Nut so you can keep your energy up and say goodbye to horrid period symptoms!
