If you are currently trying to lose pregnancy weight by following the Lose Baby Weight healthy eating plans, you would know that we say that nothing is off limits.
So if you do fancy enjoying a chocolate hit at breakfast time, we are here to offer some advice for how it can be done in a healthy way.
The secret is using raw cacao – which is made from cold pressed, un-roasted cocoa beans.
It’s different to cocoa (though you can use cocoa if it’s all you have on hand) as cocoa is raw cacao that’s been roasted, meaning its nutritional value is a bit lower than cacao.
It is commonly found in health food shops, although many supermarkets will stock it in their baking or health food section.
There are many health benefits of including raw cacao in your healthy eating plan.
It’s a mood booster – so it can put a pep in your step without the sugar and fat found in regular milk chocolate. It’s also full of antioxidants, which can protect and repair your body. Good news while you are trying to lose pregnancy weight.
Enjoying a cacao hit for breakfast every now and then is a fun way to mix up your morning routine.

Healthy Homemade Milo

Jam packed with nuts, seeds, and of course cacao – this is a serious boost of nutrition compared to the store bought Milo which is 46% sugar (yes, you read that correctly).

Mix it with warm or cold milk for a sweet treat in the morning. Milo

Choc-Mint Overnight Oats

Save yourself time in the morning by preparing the oats the night before.
Soaking your oats makes them easier to digest, and gives you a few extra minutes in bed (if the kids will allow it!). Choc mint overnight oats

Samara says:  “I have lost 12kgs on the Healthy Mummy plans and smoothies! The Healthy Mummy has helped me to take control of what I can. I am getting happier and more confident with each passing day! I’m not at my goal weight yet – my body has hit the pause button – but I will not give up.  My advice – start TODAY! Don’t wait for next week or Monday, start your journey today. You will thank yourself in a week, a month, a year!
If you always do what you’ve always done, you will always get what you’ve always got! Change is hard at first, messy in the middle and gorgeous at the end”
