“It doesn’t get any easier”

Dear Kamaria’s Kitchen,

My period pains can be pretty awful at times.  I hate period pains! I try drink tea etc but it doesn’t get any easier at all.  I get really uncomfortable and it can last all through the night but I don’t want to eat when I am on my period but then again I don’t think I am eating foods that are doing the right job.  It is hard to have the perfect diet and my lifestyle doesn’t allow it.  Do you have any recipes for period pains?  Or can you make one specially for me?  I am not too picky about what I eat I just need more stuff to combat my pains.

Dear Warrior,

I completely sympathise with you and want you to know that I am here for you if you need any support and any other advice on foods which can help.  I am someone who has a very active lifestyle and period pains are troublesome.  I also advise you to consult your GP because period pains should not be painful to the point where you are vomiting and cannot walk.  Endometriosis is quite common among women,  it is nothing to be ashamed of but maybe there are things that can help reduce the pain as a long term solution.  Regardless, natural remedies are always safest and I have a drink which I think will be helpful and encourage you to include more nutrients in your diet.  Because you have difficulty eating during your period I made a drink because creating a heavy meal of pumpkin and potato isn’t going to help you if you can’t face to eat it.  And let’s face it mush on a plate doesn’t help nausea. I hope this helps and I encourage you to keep trying new things to make your periods easier to manage.  I actually waited to have my period and tried a variety of recipes specially for you and this drink is the best and the nicest.

Recipe & Method:

  1. Chop up 3 tsps parsley, 1 banana, 1 apple, 2 big lettuce leaves and 2 handfuls of kale.
  2. Add 1 tbsp honey and 1 tbsp ground almonds.
  3. Blend all of these together and drink in a calm environment, listening to or watching something that relaxes you.  Have some dark chocolate as well.  That’s right dark chocolate can help. Yay!
