Are you looking for a healthy alternative when you’re craving all that chocolate during your PMS?
There is a new recipe that’s sweeping our blog that is all about using chickpeas as an alternative to those sweet cravings.
When you’re looking for PMS stress relief, the act of putting together a recipe can give you a fun thing to try as well as a way to have a healthy alternative for your tastebuds.
It might not take away all of your PMS gloominess, but this healthy chickpea cookie dough recipe is the new shift that you might need in order to help you push back that chocolate bar.
What you need to know before you try it:
This is unusual because you want to make this just for the healthy cookie dough, it isn’t something that you want to actually cook. This is more of a cookie dough dip, so grab your spoon and enjoy this other alternative to the super sweet and unhealthy snack and try this one that you can call a healthy snack.
We’re all about the PMS stress relief at Jubilance for PMS, so we want to help you make amazing recipes that are healthy for you too! And with so much protein in the chickpeas, it will fill you up more than when you just eat something with flour.
You’ll also want to try to add dark chocolate chips so you’re getting those antioxidants in as well.
I love pairing this cookie dough mix with some fruit, I eat it on thinly sliced pears and apples so they become my sort of cracker. Why not find heathy alternatives to everything?
Why should you try a healthy cookie dough recipe during PMS?
When we’re typically taught to want to feel better, our friends or family might offer us a bowl of soup if we’re sick and a box of chocolates if we’re heart sick.
There’s also an offering for PMS and that goes the same for when someone is heartsick. The idea for during PMS is to offer a bar of chocolates or to eat a pint of ice cream, but does that really make you feel better? It may make you feel great for that moment in time, but then there is the sugar crash that happens.
What is happening is that the glutamate (sugar levels) in your brain are going on a rollercoaster based on what you’re eating, and those have an effect on your emotions. So especially during PMS time, you want to try to eat foods that will make you feel better in the long term, not just the short term sugar high that then leads to an even lower crash.
So the solution for PMS stress relief is to try your best to eat healthy, and we know it’s hard, that’s why we’ve come up with this dessert alternative, healthy chickpea chocolate chip cookie dough.
