Health Roadblock: PMS

Lots of times we can be doing just great on a health kick and then WHAM, it's that time of the month and all you can think about is chocolate.

What's a health conscious girl to do when she is seriously PMS'ing? Try feeding your sweet tooth, but not with an entire fun bag size of Snickers, with something that tricks your body into thinking it's still being bad. Go for a banana filled with peanut butter or chocolate syrup. For me, chocolate dipped strawberries always do the trick. This way you're still getting the sweets but without all of the calories and fat that come from candy bars and cake. Plus, you're getting the added nutritional value from the fruit.

Fit's Tip: For an even better version, dip the fruit in dark chocolate that is at least 60% cocoa.
