I’m Obsessed With Cookies

Why is it that every time I try to eat healthier, I suddenly become obsessed with cookies? It’s like my brain is programmed to crave the very thing I’m trying to avoid. Maybe it’s the sugar. Maybe it’s the comforting, nostalgic feeling that comes with biting into a warm, gooey cookie. Or maybe it’s just because I’m obsessed with cookies and cookies are freaking delicious.

Whatever the reason, I can’t be alone in this struggle. It’s like there’s a little cookie monster inside my brain, constantly whispering sweet nothings and urging me to indulge. But here’s the thing – I know that eating healthier is good for me. I know that I feel better when I’m nourishing my body with nutrient-rich foods. So why is it so hard to put down the darn cookies?

I think a big part of it is mindset. When we focus solely on what we’re giving up (cookies, chips, ice cream, etc.), it can feel like we’re depriving ourselves. But what if we focused instead on all the delicious, healthy foods we get to enjoy? Eating well can boost our energy levels, improve our mood, and help us maintain a healthy weight. When we start to see healthy eating as a way to nourish our bodies and improve our overall well-being, suddenly, eating healthy doesn’t feel like a punishment – it feels like a gift.

Of course, that’s easier said than done. It’s hard to break the habit of reaching for a sugary snack when we’re stressed or bored or feeling low. But maybe it’s not about eliminating those cravings altogether – maybe it’s about finding healthier ways to indulge them.

Maybe instead of reaching for a cookie, we could whip up a batch of healthy, protein-packed energy balls. Or maybe we could treat ourselves to a square of dark chocolate, which has been shown to have some pretty impressive health benefits.

So yes, the struggle to eat healthier will probably always be real. But that doesn’t mean we have to deprive ourselves of all the things we love. It’s about finding balance, and finding ways to nourish our bodies and our souls – cookies included (in moderation, of course, haha).
