An unbelievably easy, no-fuss, Christmas peppermint bark recipe.
I’ve found a new weakness….easy peppermint bark!!!
Let me ask you something first.
– What does every self-respecting chocaholic do around the Christmas??!
– Look for every excuse to incorporate chocolate into any Christmas treat imaginable 🙂
This holiday season and Christmas will be different for us and special. Now the time has come for us to go to monthly check-ups and to see our angel. This is our first child and we are very excited. I’ve always wanted a girl, I love dresses, skirts, sweet hairstyles…
Buuuut, my doctor says it’s the boy …uff, little shirts , trucks and planes. As long as he is alive and healthy, it is irrelevant, he is our greatest treasure.
After several regularly scheduled doctor’s appointments and some good news, the only thing that worries me is high blood pressure in pregnancy. Hmm, how do I explain that I’m generally ok and that every my arrival to the doctor’s is only positive excitement because of the baby. I got my therapy and I must be sticking to it.
With the help of proper nutrition the pressure can be lowered naturally. I suggest these two ingredients:
Bananas – Your Moms have surely told you that bananas are healthy because they are full of potassium. Well, she was right. Potassium lowers blood pressure and reduces fluid retention.
Chocolate – Don’t rejoice too much because we are talking here about small quantities and dark chocolate with higher percentage of cocoa. Chocolate is rich in magnesium, and magnesium relaxes blood vessels and regulates blood pressure.
Christmas is near and of the proposed food, I of course opted for chocolate and this is my chocolate proposal for you!
