1. Food labels should be read carefully
2. Sticking with the higher calorie option could be more satisfying
Keep that in mind during this holiday season. If you REALLY want a Christmas cookie, have one. Don't try to "eat around it" by consuming anything OTHER than the cookie (fruit, chocolate chips, anything sweet in the cupboard). That behavior will likely cause you to consume more calories AND still not be satisfied.
Here is a roundup of some of my ultimate favorite cookie recipes that I have posted on Eighty Twenty. I will have a new recipe for an amazing cookie coming to you next week!
(Ok I guess I really have a thing for shortbread)
