The perfect snack while at home or on the go, nuts are energy-dense fuel sources, packed with protein, fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, and fiber. According to Dr. Christine O’Connor of The Gynecology Center, “Foods that are rich in good fats or omega-3s can be helpful and much more filling than the calories in junk foods.” Nuts and seeds, such as walnuts and flaxseeds are rich in the healthy omega-3 fatty acids which are known to fight inflammation and pain. Additionally, nuts and seeds are loaded with magnesium and with vitamin B6, which go a long way in helping with cravings and mood swings that are often a result of your fluctuating hormones.
