Green kinda everything pasta

Okay guys, I haven’t upploaded a recipe for soooo long, but there is a reason why.  Life update…my schedule has changed, I’m always on the run, currently sick and I also have kinda changed my everyday cooking. I am not a vegetarian but I’ve been eating a lot of veggies, avoiding meat and  mastering the 5 minute meals lately. I think it works just great for me now, still yummy but I really need the ten minute lunch box. So with no more talking about things irrelevant here’s how you can make this pasta godness:

Ingredients

  •  2 cups spinach
  • 1 cup green beans
  • 1 cup whole grain pasta
  • two spoons fetta cheese
  • half green pepper
  • 1/3 of a pomegranate
  • 1 spoon olive oil
  • salt
  • pepper
  • just a bit of honey.

5 foods that reduce period pain (Amen)

When that week of the month rolls around and cramps set in…..Pain happens!

All girls who have ever experienced the “Shark week” before know what it feels like. Mood changes, cramps, bloating, headaches are the common syptoms of period. All you want to do is either eat everything in sight, or simply cry your eyes out, ( you can always do both watching Notebook).

per

But before you order that four cheese pizza , onion rings, chicken nuggets, and all that junk, remember that none of them will actually reduce the pain. However, there are some super foods that can help you cope with period pain for real. So put the ice cream back in the freezer…come  on put it back and eat these foods instead.

1. Pineapple

Fruits in general are high in manganese, but one of the richest manganese food sources is pineapple. This good looking fruit also contains high levels of bromelain. So say goodbye to carmps!

 2. Bananas

Bananas are filled with nutrients such as vitamin B6 that aid cramps and are loaded with potassium, which can help with bloating! (Yes, please).

3. Yogurt

Yogurt not only helps with bloading but  also contains calcium and probiotics which  have been shown to decrease menstrual cramps.

4.Green Vegetables

Green vegetables are high in calcium, magnesium and potassium, which can prevent the spasms that lead to cramping pain. These minerals can calm and relax emotions, IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN, reducing irritability. Dark green vegetables also contain high amounts of vitamin K, which is needed to coagulate blood,prevent excess bleeding and keep your pants clean.  You’re welcome.

 5.Dark Chocolate

Last but not least! Chocolate increases the amount of blood flowing to the brain which allows you to feel energized. More chocolate pleeease!

* Oh, I know this is not a food but drinking water is definitely a must during period! Believe it or not  hydrating yourself is super important when it comes to keeping those painful cramps awaaay!
