The trouble with sweet little choc chip cookies
I baked some cookies last week using this recipe. The kids looked at them and said “What?!? Porridge cookies?! No thanks!”.
They demand porridge every morning but when I put oats in baked goods it’s a no-go?
Oh well. My brain was frazzled and not thinking straight due to the joy of PMS… so I ate two that evening. It would be no big deal if I didn’t know clearly that sugar does not do my body nor my mind any good. Darn hormones.
Anyway, these babies are good. I would bake them on a regular basis IF I could handle sugar – IF I didn’t feel noticeably healthier, happier, stronger when I do not eat sugar.
So after my lapse last week (I had a couple the next day as well :|), I am now back to my sugar-free existence and feeling much better now that the sugar-bloating has passed.
(It’s actually so freaking fascinating the effect that sugar has on my body and mind. I feel like a science project some days as I’m constantly keeping an eye on what effect certain foods have on me – I believe our bodies don’t lie, they tell us what they need/don’t need… and I’m loving not ignoring it anymore and actually taking the time to listen. The rewards of listening to it are priceless.)
