Desperate Times Call for Desperate Measures.
I have to be completely honest, dieting during the holidays has been extremely difficult. Along with the rest of my family I have asked myself so many times "what was I thinking" when I decided to start this contest right before Thanksgiving. I am completely confident that after it is all over with and everyone is starting their workout regimens at the beginning of the year, and we have a head start we will be so thankful, but in the meantime it is pure torture. Well yesterday the sugar cravings became almost unbearable so I was on a mission to find some sort of cookie recipe that will fit into my diet. I absolutely love Gina's Skinny Recipes website, and refer to it often when trying to come up with things to make for dinner. As usual her website did not disappoint, I found the recipe for these cookies, and went home and made them. I was like a kid in a Candy store, because I have missed not only eating but getting to cook all the goodies during the holidays. I am not sure if it is because I have been deprived, but I was very impressed! Don't get me wrong they are no Mrs. Fields, but for only 46 calories they were wonderful. So if anyone else is insane and decided to start a diet during the holidays I would definitely recommend these for a sweet fix. Oh and I will say I shortened the cook time to about 25 minutes because my first batch was a little stiff, but the second was perfect!
