If Your PMS Were a Cartoon Character + PMS Popcorn Recipe

PMS Popcorn RecipeChocolate-drenched popcorn with a sprinkle of shredded coconut and sea salt. The ultimate recipe to soothe chocolate cravings – under 300 calories for the entire batch!

That time of the month, the visitor, your friend… Most of you ladies are well-versed in the ways of of it all, but me? I’m a bit rusty.

It’s been 4 months since I started HRT (read: my hormone story) and I’m happy to report that Mrs. Monthly has entered the building… and she brought along the biggest bag of PMS chocolate cravings with her. Like whoa.

6 years ago, when I was I studying nutrition, I learned that PMS has 6 distinct “characters”, and that each woman can experience one, or more, of these characters at any given time throughout her cycle. To help me study for my exams, I assigned each of the PMS characters a cartoon character. Hilarious.

Piglet from Winnie-the-Pooh experiences anxiety, irritability and mood swings.

Dale from Chip n’ Dale has sugar cravings (mostly chocolate).

Charlie Brown battles with depression, confusion and memory loss.

Clifford the Red Dog experiences bloating, weight gain and swelling.

Sleeping Beauty is the epitome of fatigue.

Rumpelstiltskin is greasy, oily and has bad complexion.

Any guess on what character I am?

Chocolate-drenched popcorn with a sprinkle of shredded coconut and sea salt. The ultimate recipe to soothe chocolate cravings - under 300 calories for the entire batch!
Instructions
  1. Lay the popped corn on a baking sheet. Drizzle with melted chocolate and top with a sprinkle of coconut and sea salt. Place in the fridge to cool for 20 minutes or the freezer for 1 minute (because when you're craving chocolate... who has time to wait 20 minutes for dessert?!)

  1. omg Leanne!!! I’m so happy for you! It seems so weird to congratulate you on your period but Congrats!!! Welcome those chocolate cravings girl :D

  2. Leanne, I meant to comment on this when you posted it, and it totally slipped my mind. And, it actually doesn’t have anything to do WITH the actual post. LOL While reading, after seeing you mention your studies 6 years ago, it occured to me that of all the blogs I read, you are the only one that I can think of that doesn’t do anniversary posts or “big” post shout outs (noting 100 posts, 200, 500, etc.). It got me thinking, though, (and curious) as to when you started this blog. I’ve been a reader for several years, but I have no idea how long after it’s creation I joined you. Were you still in school when you began HP or did it just come about after graduating? Have you reached the 1000 post mark, yet?? :)

    • Hey Liz ;) You’re right – I don’t celebrate blog anniversaries… I need to get better at that. It comes and goes every year and I just forget! I started Oct 31 2010. I graduated in 2008. And I’m at 854 posts! Interesting… I’ve never looked lol. Have an awesome day!
