Is it healthy to eat dark chocolate early in the morning (even for breakfast)?

Limit sugars!: All thing in moderation including sugar.You did not say how much you use. In general it is a good habit to learn to reduce the use of sugar in your diet. Natural sweetners, such as stevia, are on option. Use them sparingly as the more sweets you eat the more you tend to crave them.

Hello good morning, can I take a chocolate protein powder during pregnancy? Thanks

Hello good morning, can I take a chocolate protein powder during pregnancy? Thanks

Probably ok: You do need more protein during pregnancy, so amping up your intake is a good idea. Food sources are best, but a protein shake is probably ok. There is no definitive evidence of safety, however. You should watch for herbal additives in the shake; some, including anise and licorice root among others, may not be a good idea in pregnancy. Ask you doctor or midwife to review the label. Good wishes! ...Read more

I keep sneezing when I get up in the morning. It's 10-15 minutes of misery, runny nose and eyes. I also sneeze when I have curd or chocolate. Reason?

Other symptoms?: If not, it's probably an allergy of some sort. If it's not too troubling, ignore it. If it is, consider testing and treatment or anti-histamine pills. Best! ...Read more
