Precies wat je wil: deze bakkerij stuurt je lekkere dingen als je ongesteld bent

Als je ongesteld bent wil je maar één ding: eten. En dat weten ze als geen ander bij de Moon Cycle Bakery. De bakkerij stuurt je namelijk precies wat je nodig hebt als je menstruatie begint, namelijk taarten, brownies en ander lekkers.

Verschillende pakketten

Klinkt als de hemel op aarde, niet? Ze bieden verschillende arrangementen aan. De full moon kost je dertig dollar, daar krijg je drie verschillende gebakjes naar keuze voor. De half moon kost je 23 dollar, dan krijg je er twee naar keuze. Ga je voor het crescent moon-arrangement, dan krijg je één gebakje en ben je vijftien dollar kwijt. Beetje duur, wel lekker.

‘We willen dat vrouwen hun menstruatie omarmen, niet dat ze zouden willen dat ze nooit meer ongesteld worden. En hoe kun je dat beter doen met allemaal lekkers?’, zegt een van de bedenkers. Agree, agree!


Het bedrijf is begonnen op Kickstarter, waar ze in no-time genoeg investeerders vonden. Daardoor gaan ze al op 15 december open. Beetje jammer is wel dat het bedrijf tot nu toe alleen in verschillende delen van Amerika bezorgt. Nu maar hopen dat het snel naar Europa (lees: Nederland) komt. Tot die tijd kun je je vergapen aan de foto’s van hun baksels.

Hazelnuts remind me of my parents — they used to drink their coffee with hazelnut creamer when I was a kid and the smell would linger in the kitchen on weekend mornings. It reminded me of home and that deep feeling of comfort that only your childhood can render. It reminded me that it was the weekend, which meant that we had two full days to spend together aka a dream come true. So, when Well + Good @iamwellandgood asked me to share a recipe that made me feel cozy, happy and had ingredients that can help support our bodies during PMS, I knew I wanted to create something with Hazelnuts (hello, Boron :)) Get ready to make and devour these gluten-free, hazelnut brownies (with a side of golden milk — I'm looking at you @live24k ;)) and make sure to tag us if you try these babies out!

We’re starting this Monday with a “meet the treat” feature because we know Mondays after the holidays ain’t always the easiest and these babies make it all a little smoother. These no-bake oatmeal cookies (recipe created by the adorable and amazing @rachlmansfield) have a very ✨ special ingredient that we’re super excited about. We’ve teamed up with @pearlbutter and packed these nuggets of gold with their ultra-amazing Glow Getter Butter!! Turmeric and Ashwagandha, two of the main ingredients in the Glow Getter, are huge supporters of keeping our bodies happy during our cycles. Turmeric is the MVP for battling inflammation and Ashwagandha, as all-star smartie @twist_of_lemons explains, is “most studied for stress reduction. One of the most common symptoms of PMS is increased reactivity to stress or anxiety and poor sleep, and the alkaloids in Ashwagandha may be what creates its sedative and hypotensive properties, reducing heart rate and also insomnia.” So many smiley faces over here. 🤗 // SIDENOTE: WE WANT YOUR BRAINS! We promise this isn’t some crazy zombie game 🧟‍♀️, although that sounds fun, but we’ve heard your requests and brilliant ideas and we’re creating a little space on our website called “Mission Control” which will break down every ingredient used, how it helps support you and studies to back it up. If you haven’t noticed already, weren’t not about making claims — were about giving real support — and we’re so excited to help bring this little science home to life. WHERE YOU COME IN: Are there any lingering questions about our ingredients, treats, studies etc that you’ve been wanting to know more about? Let us know and we’ll do our best to answer them as well as add them to our Mission Control. #scienceisyummy
