Happy Wednesday! I’m finally sharing a What I ate Wednesday post again, along with an old favorite recipe I rediscovered.
I’ve been craving chocolate lately. And creamy desserts. And healthy fat.
In the fall I was making this chocolate mousse and I had completely forgotten about it!
It’s so easy and really delicious. I managed to get 5-6 servings out of a batch and felt full and satisfied after a small serving (something healthy fats are great for!)
3 Ingredient Chocolate Mousse
- 1 can full fat coconut milk (I use this kind)
- 3-4 Tbsp cocoa powder or raw cacao powder
- 1/2 teaspoon liquid stevia or 1-2 Tbsp liquid sweetener of choice
Place the coconut milk in the refrigerator overnight to thicken. Open the can and scoop it into a mixing bowl. Beat the coconut milk with an electric mixer for about 5 minutes or until it thickens and becomes creamy. Add the cocoa powder and sweetener and blend in. Enjoy!
Besides craving desserts, I’ve been eating a lot of everything. Breast feeding hunger is no joke!
Here’s a glimpse of my recent eats:
I am loving pancakes these days! We have a great sprouted grain mix we use, and I also love these protein pancakes. I usually add a smoothie or scrambled eggs. And mid-morning, I’ve been eating a big bowl of homemade granola. Oats are supposed to help with milk production so I’m getting a good dose daily!
Lunch and dinner have been leftovers and/or freezer meals:
Breast-feeding hunger really hits me hard for snacking and sweets. I’m going to get the sugar back in check soon (another whole foods reset challenge is coming in September and I’ll do my best to join you!)
I also keep a jar of almonds and raisins by my bed. In the first few weeks, I sometimes find I’m starving in the middle of the night when getting up to nurse and it’s nice to have a snack to help me settle back to sleep.
So that’s a typical day right now. When I have a little more time and energy, I want to get more veggies into my day and prep some make ahead salads for lunch. But we’ll get there. The focus right now is to stay well fueled and hydrated to feed baby J.
What are your go to sweet treats? Do you have a favorite healthy dessert?
