I hope your holidays are going well 🙂
I have a specific question for the women out there, especially those who are trying to achieve zero-waste…
How do you stick to Zero-waste when you PMS?
Let me clarify.
I am not talking about pads, etc. I have that covered. Reusable cloth pads and a Divacup are my go-to waste-free alternatives.
I’m talking about food.
I don’t know about you, but when my first day hits and I feel like I am dying, everything goes out the window. I could honestly care less about the fact that chip bags aren’t recyclable when my insides are ripping apart.
Chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate. Bags of chips, and copious amounts of junk food are consumed for one day out of every month.
I am also one of those women whose stomach is quite the monster that time of the month…I’m talking about it growling constantly through the night, making me get up multiple times to feed it. And quite frankly when I am interrupted from sleep I want snack foods, I don’t want to have to warm anything up.
And before you say it, no. Fruit doesn’t cut it.
So the first day tends to be me, in the store, clearing out the chips and chocolate, and walking out of the store with a bunch of waste.
After the first day, my mind and conscious return with a vengeance.
But by then I have consumed all of the food anyway.
My question to you, is do you indulge that time of the month? Or do you have any zero-waste snack foods you make ahead of time?
