Cookie craving – on a calorie budget?

I know cookies are not the healthiest of foods. We cannot all be perfect all the time!  If you are going to cheat, cheat “GOOD”.   I am always searching for quick yummy snacks when I have a bad craving to satisfy me.  Volume is always another quality when you are PMS-ing!

The Pizzelle cookie fills that void!  They come in different flavors like vanilla, chocolate and lemon.  They have no trans fats and no preservatives.  They do have sugar but only  8 grams for a whole serving and 3 grams of protein.   The FANTASTIC part is that a serving size is 6 COOKIES at only 140 calories! WOW” one serving, 6 COOKIES!.  Gotta love the volume when you are craving sweets!

Try them!

About healthyhappy50ish

Most important a mom & wife! Have 3 wonderful daughters and a happy marriage. I am in the 50ish category and sandwiched between young kids in middle school and aging parents. I am passionate about healthy living and feel this would be a great way to share my experiences. It is a scary thought I am an AARP card-carrying member and over 50 years have gone by!! Do not feel over 30, but when I look around me I want my friends and myself to enjoy life to the fullest. I do not want my kids to wipe my bottom in the future!! I want go out moving enjoying life,family,friends and of course wine. I also felt this was also a way to share myself to my kids once they want to listen and read my blogg. Someday they my see my motherly advice had some value! Most of all I am doing this because I love my family and my self and needed to have an avenue to express my thoughts and ideas!!
