Welcome to another blog post where I share everything I ate in a day.
Brace yourselves because when Aunt Flo arrives, my taste buds go on a wild adventure, craving all sorts of flavors and dishes, so this will be a fun blog sharing everything I ate in a day.
So today, I want to take you on a mouthwatering journey through my favorite eats during that time of the month.
From quick and savory breakfasts to refreshing beverages, spicy lunches, and a tantalizing Thai-inspired dinner, let’s dive into the flavors that satisfy my cravings.
In this blog post, we will be going over everything I ate in a day when it is that time of the month.
Breakfast: Quick and Savory Homemade Potstickers to Kickstart My Day
When it’s that time of the month, I need something that’s both satisfying and doesn’t take forever to make. That’s why my go-to breakfast is homemade potstickers.
Trust me; there’s nothing like biting into a perfectly pan-fried dumpling, golden and crispy on the outside, with a flavorful filling inside.
I have tons of dumplings and potsticker recipes, but here are some of my go-to potsticker and dumpling recipes.

Here is also a youtube video where I meal-prepped 500+ dumplings and potstickers, where I also share how I prepare the filling, wrap the potstickers, and, lastly, how to store them.
Mid-Day Snack: Korean Strawberry Milk and Jammin’ Toast
Go stock up on some strawberries, and let’s make FRESH Korean Strawberry Milk from scratch!
Refreshing, delicious, and easy to make at home, fresh Korean strawberry milk is my go-to drink every summer. Fresh Korean Strawberry Milk is SUPER easy to make, and the best part?
It is done with only four simple ingredients with no artificial flavor! All you need is fresh strawberries, honey, sugar, and lemon juice.
PRO-TIP: make extra because this strawberry syrup tastes amazing on top of ice cream, milk bread, and waffles, and even use it to make delicious drinks!
- 1.5 lb of Fresh Strawberries
- ¼ cup of Sugar
- 3 tablespoons of Honey
- 1 tablespoon of Lemon Juice
- Milk or Coconut Milk
Lunch: 10-Minute Spicy Garlic Noodles
Do you ever get that fierce craving for spicy food? Well, I definitely do when it’s that time of the month. That’s why my lunchtime favorite is none other than 10-minute spicy garlic noodles.
It’s been 2.5 years, and I still make my Spicy Garlic Noodle at least once a week for lunch. Don’t say I didn’t warn you, but my 10-Minute Spicy Garlic Noodle is seriously so addicting and delicious.
The sauce is spicy, tangy, garlicky, and savory, paired with refreshing crunchy cucumber and a crispy fried egg; no wonder this Spicy Garlic Noodle is my most viral recipe! If you are looking for something quick, easy, cheap, and delicious, this noodle recipe is meant for you.
