Not So Benign Sweet Tooth

Remember when I said I had developed a post-birth sweet tooth?  I thought it was no big deal and was indulging myself since I am burning massive amounts of calories nursing two babies, but a friend told me it might be a sign of a protein deficiency.  After reading this article and this one, I think she’s right!  I need to eat more protein and carbohydrate rich foods.  It’s really no surprise since I had little to no time to eat while I was on maternity leave.  Now that I’m back at work, ironically, I have time to eat, so I’ll have to be more careful about meal planning.
