Breakfasts Packed With Power
What has breakfast done for you lately? These powerful morning meals will curb PMS, battle a cold and even help you remember where you put your keys…
The PMS tamer
If your cycle is cramping your style, whip up this breakfast sandwich. Vitamin B6 combined with
magnesium – both found in salmon and avocado – relieves monthly mood swings. And eating fish and cheese helps replenish vitamin D and calcium, which your period can deplete. Finally, according to the Journal of Reproductive Medicine
, a high-fibre diet eases PMS by expelling excess oestrogen.
