So how was everyone's Christmas? Are we all as stuffed as I am?

As I am recovering from my food comas for the past few days, I still manage to be extremely hungry at all times of the day. Maybe it's because of all the leftovers, just begging me to eat them. But as they say, tis the season to be merry. And if merry = eating all the time, then I'm rocking being merry.

This Christmas I tried, I really tried to resist the sweets. Chocolate? Just say no! Sour keys? Hmm..does that count as a sweet if it has the word sour in it? Maybe I'll take a couple. But the cookies everywhere, how can you resist??

Even now, after all the festivities are over, I'm still eyeing those cookies. Just had one for breakfast. What's wrong with me?

Okay, so in my efforts to wean myself from cookies, I'm making a healthy (er) cookie. You know, a detox cookie after all the butter and sugar goodness I've been ingesting.

So as a way of getting a little healthier while satisfying that lingering cookie craving, make yourself some of these. You won't regret it.
