May 05, 2015 3 min read

While on your period, your body goes through tons of hormonal changes. Some of these changes can leave you feeling starved, hungry, bitchy, fatigued, moody, and depleted of all of your energy. 7-tips-cara-fitness-menggunakan-alat-berat-bagi-pemula-iii.1 Here is a perfect day's diet to eat while on your period to help relieve some of those annoying PMS symptoms. Breakfast: Banana Walnut Muffins According to manu sources, bananas are a wonder when it comes to decreasing painful period cramps. The potassium found in bananas also aid in water retention which will certainly help you with that awful bloating. Walnuts are thought to be super helpful during your period because they are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids which help with inflammation and pain. Ingredients:
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup Stevia
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 1 1/2 cups mashed bananas
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Directions:
  1. Combine flour, oats, Stevia, baking powder, soda, and salt.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the egg lightly. Stir in the milk, and oil Add the mashed banana and walnuts, and combine thoroughly.
  3. Stir the flour mixture into the banana mixture until just combined.
  4. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper bake cups, and divide the batter among them.
  5. Bake at 375 degrees F for 20-25 minutes.
5add1a5491573df590b3fd0571e0cbe8 Mid-Morning Snack: Greek Yogurt topped with Berries Greek yogurt is perfect for upping your calcium intake during the week of your period. It can be a great idea since calcium is known for reducing muscle cramps within your body altogether. Berries are packed with anti-oxidants and promote overall wellness. Lunch: Salmon & Spinach Salad Salmon is great for PMS symptoms due to the concentrated amounts of Omega-3 fatty acids that has been known to relax your muscles thus decreasing the severity of your period cramps. Spinach is also wonderful to eat while on your period due to its high iron content. While you are menstrating, you need a little extra iron. Ingredients:
  • 4 salmon filets
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp dill
  • 1 tsp basil
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • salt/pepper to taste
  • 1 bag of spinach leaves
Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. In a baking pan, arrange the salmon filets. Salt/pepper each filet evenly, to taste.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together melted butter, lemon juice, garlic powder, dill, and basil.
  4. Pour lemon butter mixture over the filets and bake for 20 minutes.
  5. Top each salmon filet on a bed of spinach leaves.
  5add1a5491573df590b3fd0571e0cbe8 Mid-Afternoon Snack: Whole Grain Crackers with Cheese Whole grains are great for you to snack on during your period because they keep you feeling full, which prevents overeating while your hormones are leaving you craving everything in sight! Cheese is great as well since it is high in calcium, which reduces muscle cramping. Dinner: Bean & Beef Stew Red meat is a must for when you are menstrating due to the high levels of iron. Beans are also a great source of iron, but should be eaten in moderation as they could cause gas which leads to more bloating! Ingredients:
  • 2 lbs gound sirloin beef
  • 2 onions, diced
  • 2 red bell peppers, diced
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 3 (14.5 ounce) cans diced tomatoes with green chile peppers
  • 1 (15 ounce) can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 1/2 cups beef broth
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 bag frozen okra
  • 1 bag frozen corn
  • 1 bag frozen sliced carrots
  • salt/pepper to taste
Directions:
  1. Heat large pot over medium-high and add beef-cook until browned.
  2. Add onions, red bell peppers, and garlic to beef; cook and stir until onion is slightly tender, about 10 minutes.
  3. Stir in tomatoes with green chile peppers, kidney beans, black beans, beef broth, chili powder, basil, and cumin into the beef mixture.
  4. Bring mixture to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, cover the pot, and simmer, stirring every 15 minutes.
  5. Stir edamame, corn, and carrots into stew; cook until heated through, about 5 minutes.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
