Nourishing curry - Perfect for your menstrual phase

Inspired by my stay in Sri Lanka, I want to share with you a super nourishing curry that is great as a cycle food during your period.

  • Sweet potato keeps us full for a long time and is rich in vitamin E, potassium and magnesium.

  • Ginger and the turmeric it contains in curry powder are powerful anti-inflammatories and pain relievers.

  • Leafy vegetables are an excellent source of plant-based iron and thus promote blood formation.

  • Legumes, such as chickpeas, contain many B vitamins, which prevent the formation of water retention and accordingly have an antispasmodic effect.
