The luteal phase can bring on PMS, hunger and cravings. This is completely normal. In fact, our body uses up 5-10% more calories during this premenstrual phase. Don’t fight it and listen when our body is telling us to eat. If you are craving a sweet or salty snack, dark chocolate, fruit, nuts and seeds are good substitutes. This pancake recipe is rich of complex carbohydrates which can help to gain energy and help curb hunger, vitamin B6 to help easing PMS symptoms, and magnesium which can help reducing fluid retention.
