Aleen is back with DST’s resident dietician Tracy Lockwood Beckerman to talk about her new book The Better Period Food Solution. They discuss menstrual equality, nutrition on your period, and the ways in which food choices affect our reproductive health. At 8:40 they discuss The Pink Tax and the injustice it represents. At 21:25 they talk about how little some of us know about our own bodies, hormonal imbalances, and the delicate nature of our cycle. Then at 35:45 they walk us through each phase of menstruation and describe how food cycling can change the way your body functions. Should we all be rethinking how diet affects our period? At 1:03:50 they close out the show with a conversation about getting in touch with our bodies and how we’re feeling.
