Craving CHOCOLATE?

One of the the most interesting side effects from breastfeeding is these crazy chocolate cravings I’m getting. I didn’t have much of a sweet tooth before or during pregnancy and I could easily pass up dessert, sweets or cookies but now it’s a completely different story. Since I started breastfeeding all I want is chocolate! I’ve been eating Lindt bars like they are going out of business (seriously!) but to my pleasant surprise there is actually a scientific explanation. When a woman nurses, deficiencies in magnesium or iron can occur making her desire chocolate, which has a fair amount of both minerals. Yay! That is a good enough excuse for this mama.

With increasing my magnesium intake to 600 mg per day I decided to whip up my Chocolate Mousse recipe from my Strong Like Mommy Ebook, it definitely hit the spot and I got my chocolate fix with  an abundance of healthy fats (also super important while breastfeeding), lean protein from New Zealand Whey Protein Powder and skipped out on the process sugar – win, win, win!
