    1. Thanks dear. Tried and tested by me. Every month I feel terrible. My body gives me signals, then I have to snap out of it.

  1. I always crave dark chocolate caramel sea salts squares when I am pmsing. It’s like my go to cure all and a lot of rest. My Mr. Amazing always keeps my freezer stocked since I prefer my chocolate cold when it’s close to that time of the month.

  2. This is great advice. I actually started eating a little bit healthier a few months ago (goodbye lots of sugar) and felt a huge difference during my time of the month after compared to before (like no headaches, more energy). It was an amazing feeling, glad you had it on your list!
