What do I focus on eating before, during, and after that particular time of the month? A powerful superfood that had been cultivated for thousands of years in South America. A bean that is the source of all chocolate products. In its unheated, unadulterated form, this superfood provides a vast amount of minerals for our bodies; feeding the body, mind, and spirit.
Raw Cacao! Cacao is a rich source of antioxidants, fiber, and iron. Cacao is one of the highest food sources of magnesium. The benefits of magnesium in our bodies and particularly around your time of the month are immense! Improved mood, less cramping, and more functional energy are all a result for me when I eat cacao. Give it a try. You can readily find cacao as a whole bean or as nibs online or at your local health food store.
