I LOVE chocolate. Like so much. I don’t think I ever truly understood the POWER it had over me until I became a mom.
Oh wait. That’s a lie. I know EVERY MONTH what it does for me. 😂
Yes, I am a regular menstruating woman who enjoys a good square of dark chocolate. There are health benefits, you know. Benefits that I couldn’t really tell you right now because I’m too busy admiring the chocolate deliciousness I made for my local challenge sisters I am seeing tomorrow! 😍
I’ve made a Black Bean Brownie Cake!!! And thanks to the curb-craving powers of Shakeology, I won’t be eating any until tomorrow while I’m with my ladies. 😉 We have a play date planned with our kids. I will be meeting some of them for the first time and I couldn’t be happier!
Our community of empowered women is GROWING! And we are happy to welcome more. But in the meantime, even if you aren’t joining our meet-up tomorrow, please enjoy this recipe!
