devoted to all cravings before, during, and after your menstrual cycle
[because when it's that time of the month you really don't give a fuck]

yosonice2 asked: I am so so bloated (of course, because of my lovely period) any tips? :-)

try to enjoy this time — don’t pressure your body to not be itself. no body is perfect at that time; the body is constantly in flux. drink herbal tea. if it’s too hot for that, go for cold water with lemon. fruits will taste great at this time. I suggest avoiding starches and carbs, which always seem to be so energy-depriving, but your body will also crave those things, so don’t police yourself! indulge. take time out for a long bath, or a nice, hot shower. rest. take a nap if you really need to. lastly and most importantly, sit down on the toilet with music or a book. I know a lot of people don’t talk about this, but when you’re menstruating, there is a great chance that you’re cramped-up and bloating because you need to sit down and take some time to go to the bathroom. I read Erykah Badu’s twitter, and she is a huge proponent of using a footstool in the bathroom. footstools help re-position the body at an angle that allows for peak colonic comfort, and I’ve personally noticed that this position relieves a lot of the gastrointestinal issues that accompany my monthly menstrual cycle.

I hope this helps.
