A few people have asked me if I've experienced any pregnancy cravings yet, but I think I always have cravings, especially for chocolate! I was surprised when, for several weeks, I had no interest in chocolate, and the permanent dish of dark chocolate candies on our counter lay untouched. I'm back to normal, though. A Whole Foods opened in our city a few weeks ago, and I'm so excited about good food. I didn't want to become a Whole Foods junkie, but when they offer you samples at the chocolate counter, how can you resist? I'm still vowing to shop at our local natural foods store whenever I can.

So these are a couple of snacks to fulfill that need for chocolate. My own creation--Dark chocolate drizzled popcorn, made with the most peppery popcorn--yum!

And from the chocolate counter--Piedras de chocolate or chocolate stones--aren't they beautiful? They taste even better!


  1. hmmmm, very interesting. I look forward to the experience of pregnancy (we've just started trying). I have very sensitive senses and I'm dying to see how I'll react to food when I'm pregnant. I'm glad to hear you're back to your beloved chocolate!

  2. Happy 2009 Kayla! What an exciting year this promises to be! When I was pregnant, all I could think about was ice cream - you can guess what my new years resolution involves this year!


Tell me what you think! I love to read comments.
