Between the cramps, bloating and bad mood, your time of the month can also leave you girlies HUNGRY! I’ve consulted the stars to see what treat is on the menu for your May cycle. Check out your sign below to start SNACKIN!
ARIES: March 21 - April 19
Red is so totally your colour and you can be a bit intimidating, so it’s no surprise that you also have the ability to send people to the hospital with ulcers (oops). You’re spicy and you always leave a mark wherever you go (just like cheeto dust...), so be sure to reach for the Flamin' Hot Cheetos this month!
TAURUS: April 20 - May 20
Taurus is the “Treat Yo Self” sign of the zodiac, which means you’re not gonna just settle for any ol’ snack. You love the finer things in life, so this month you deserve to TREAT YO SELF a little extra with some fancy French macarons. Mix and match all your fav colours, and you’ll be all set for May’s period cravings.
GEMINI: May 21 - June 20
Pickles dipped in peanut butter. YA U HEARD ME, *crunch, crunch*! If anyone is gonna be onboard with a crazy flavour profile, it’s YOU sis. Geminis are known for their dual nature, so your snack has to be as wonderfully wacky as you are. The combo may be a lil strange at first, but give it a try! It may surprise you!
CANCER: June 21 - July 22
You’re sweet and sensitive so naturally you need an equally sweet and sensitive snack. And what better to help your PMS than a reliable tub of ice cream? Cancer’s symbol is a crab, but it may as well just be a tub of Ben & Jerry’s. So dig in! No bowl necessary!
LEO: July 23 - August 22
Leo, the spotlight is always on you and that’s just the way you like it! It makes sense then, that the treat you’re reaching for this month has to be equally as special as you are. Sparklers often adorn the top, and it has a whole day dedicated to it...which makes the birthday cake a Leo’s DREAM. Cut yourself a slice even though it’s not your b-day, and watch the period blues fade away.
VIRGO: August 23 - September 22
The most earthy of earth signs, you’re gonna want something to munch on that makes you feel more “grounded” during your period. And there’s nothing wrong with a trusty handful of granola. It’s dependable, it’s satisfying, and it’s gonna get the job DONE! If you wanna get absolute wild, throw some chocolate chips in there. Party!
LIBRA: September 23 - October 22
If you’re hangin’ with a group of people that all seem quite different from one another, you’re the first to find common ground amongst all of them. And what snack does this better than chocolate covered pretzels? They’re the perfect marriage of salty and sweet, and they’re sure to make you feel more balanced during your time of the month.
SCORPIO: October 23 - November 21
You’re kinda fierce, and I’m honestly kinda scared of you! You are one powerful little sign and because of this, you need a snack to keep your energy levels HIGH and your health bar at 100%. Studies prove that popcorn will give you the extra push you need to get through your day, so this month, make sure you pop awffffff!
SAGITTARIUS: November 22 - December 21
Nobody is as sweet as you! Which means there’s nothing like pure sugar to pick you up from your deepest PMS slump. When you’re looking for a little bit of fun during a fundamentally “BLAH” week, hit the Fun Dip! Go on sis, dive into the beauty that is a LITERAL package of powdered sugar!
CAPRICORN: December 22 - January 19
You’re always ready to crush a challenge head-on, so your perfect period snack shouldn’t be any different! Candy that combats cravings + hard work = Jawbreakers!!! Not only will all the mindless licking distract you from cramps, but you’ll also accomplish a mini-goal once you hit the middle. Your sweet tooth will be satisfied and so will your desire to tackle any “hard” problem that comes your way!
AQUARIUS: January 20 - February 18
You’re trendy, you’re fun, you’re fab, you probably believe in aliens (or that you’ve been abducted by one). When your period’s got you in a black hole, you wanna reach for a snack that’s as intergalactic as you are. Galaxy donuts will not only have your cravings SNATCHED, but they’ll also have everyone asking “Who is that girlie and how can I be her???”
PISCES: February 19 - March 20
We’re going LITERAL with this one my little fishies! The wettest of water signs, you luckily don’t have to dive all the way into the deep end to find a snack capable of handling the Crimson Wave. If you have a sweet tooth, go with Swedish Fish. If not, Goldfish crackers are the way to go! Shark week is no match!
My little stars, that’s all for this month! See you in June for your next cycle ;)
