3 Ways to Make a Cookie Healthy

Sweet Tooths UNITE! There’s nothing I like better than sugar. Unfortunately, that doesn’t work well with my “girlish figure” so to speak. Plus, sugar contributes to unpleasantness like diabetes, heart disease, and obesity. In my health journey, I have struggled with cutting sugar out of my diet. I have been seen begging my husband to finish off a box of cookies so I won’t eat them, stealing candy from my children’s stash when they’ve gone to bed, and even coming up with reasons to take my daughter out for ice cream when she doesn’t even want it. It isn’t pretty. The struggle is REAL.

My saving grace? Shakeology recipes that taste like cookie milk shakes. Here are my top 3:
