Here at Lose Baby Weight we are all about balance. There’s no cutting out food groups, or having an ‘all or nothing’ mentality.
And while we know that chocolate isn’t a food group (yet), it’s definitely something that many people assume will be off limits while they lose pregnancy weight.
But luckily, it doesn’t have to be that way. We found out from a recent Healthy Mummy survey of 1,950 Mums from our Community that almost a quarter of you (22%) found that resisting chocolate was the hardest part of weight loss.
With a little bit of preparation (and these tasty recipes) you can prepare your own healthy eating tasty treats at home that give you all the chocolatey goodness that you love, without all the excess sugar, trans fats and additives found in many commercial chocolates and desserts.
So next time you need a chocolate fix, treat yourself to one of these great recipes. And if you love to flip through a cookbook for inspiration for your next dessert, check out our Guilt Free Chocolate Treats and Baking Cookbook, available in our shop.
