A lot of women reported a cravings for chillies and sourish foods just before their monthly period. I am no exception. I thought of finding out from Google if other women who don’t regularly take spicy foods crave for them as well. But guess what? I found my own post which I blogged in my personal blog on PMS and foods craving.
The above was my dinner a few nights ago. It is one of the most kick-ass tomyam around and I can never get enough of those prawns, squids and fish slices. The whole bowl costs only RM6.
The other must have dish is the sambal beans sold by this stall selling grilled seafoods. They use a mixture of asparagus, four angle beans, petai, long beans and lots of onions. The asparagus is diuretic and it makes you pee a lot, which is good for the water retention. If you add in aubergines, they say it will drive away the petai smell. Too bad they ran out of aubergines that day.
I have blogged about Kedai Kopi Min Jiang but I go there so often so this is another post for them.
Can never live without my tomyam and sambal just before period. What about you? Do you crave any special foods during the PMS monster attack?
