My very fussy baby is 8 weeks old and I am still barely getting any sleep. At nights I get about 1.5 or 2 hours tops at a time, for a total of about 4 to 5 hour.

The problem is that all the sleep deprivation is giving me wild sugar cravings. Some days I manage to tough it out. But last night which was especially rough led to really fierce cravings in the morning. I decided that rather than toughing it out I would make a healthy smoothie so that I wouldn’t be driven to something especially bad. I threw together some cream, full fat greek yogurt, blueberries, flax meal and a teaspoon of honey. (Note that I had given up flax but lately I find that adding it to my smoothies leaves me feeling more satiated and also seems to curb the sugar cravings).

Are there other QUICK and “SAFE” indulgences that you guys can suggest? So far I do dark chocolate covered almonds, smoothies are a favorite, and I’ve also thrown some dates and coconut butter into the food processor to make “truffles” but that requires a bit more time than I really have these days...
