This time not a doctor but a baker found the cure to alleviate premenstrual syndrome (PMS). Yes, you read it right! Moon Cycle bakery located in Washington made a brownie which is simply designed to combat hormonal fluctuations. These brownies don’t have any refined sugar but contain nutrients which complete the needs of women when their hormones sway and body cries out for more serotonin (which we can release when we eat food associated with happiness).
At Moon Cycle Bakery, we have all the feelings for the people who have collaborated with us to make our treats and this business possible. Everything from the ingredients to the added adaptogens to the taste testing — if it weren’t for our leading ladies, we wouldn’t have any delicious sweets to send your way. This week, we want to highlight the brand Root + Bones run by the seriously loving soul, Alyssa Melody. Root + Bones is the company that helps give you a sense of calm, an added boost in libido and an overall invigorated feeling through their adaptogens. Adaptogens work as a thermostat, helping keep your body in homeostasis during stressful life situations aka our cycles and add degrees of health to any meal we add them to. To learn more about Root + Bones, their message, the amazing recipe library and fall in love with Alyssa like we have, head to www.rootandbones.com. ?: @rootandbones

Happy Halloween, beasties!! Oh goodness, do we love this holiday — a day to shed inhibitions, to step into an alter ego, to celebrate magic in all its glory and add a healthy dose of spookiness to our lives. And of course, the sweets. Our chocolate cup sweetened with ginger and honey comes in handy this time of the year and helps to satisfy our sweet tooth without the sugar rush. Fiending it as much as we are? Head to the link in the bio to secure your reward before they run out (oh, the horror!) Happy haunting!
Devon Loft informed the Mail Online: “When you’re on your period, something that is delicious and sweet can be so comforting. But we thought, wouldn’t it be great if you could feed those cravings with something that is good for your body.”
We are officially at the half-way mark for our Kickstarter and already 74% funded!!! The fact of the matter is that we wouldn’t be here without you. This business and serving you feels like putting on sweatpants, taking off my bra and walking barefoot on heated floors (it's THAT good). Words can’t begin to describe the joy and gratitude I have for all of you who have helped support this dream — I get so giddy thinking about all the ways we'll be able to continue to grow MCB + best serve you once we hit our goal. If you haven’t checked out the Kickstarter yet, picked your reward, and backed our project, please consider clicking the link in the bio to learn more. Our treat-filled galaxy awaits (BYOS – bring your own sweatpants).
Loft says on her website, “Decadent. Rich. Creamy. Crunchy. Salty. Sweet…These are words to describe the cravings that so many of us experience during our cycles (or on any given day, let’s be real). When we started Moon Cycle Bakery, we wanted to deliver these adjectives and so much more to people worldwide.”
The day is HERE. Our open hearts are beating a mile a minute as we see our baby for the last 16 months come to LIFE! Our Kickstarter campaign is officially live and we are BLOWN away by the fact that 37 people have already donated $5,283 !!! Come join our galaxy and sign up for your #monthlymoment now!

“However, we didn’t want to sacrifice health in the process. This is why our treats are made with high-quality, hormone-balancing, clean ingredients. We’ve made sure there are vegan options if that supports your lifestyle as well as dairy-free and gluten-free choices.”
