Would You Rather…

Would you rather share chocolate decadence or split an oatmeal raisin cookie?  This is a no brainer - give me decadence! For ten more calories, you can have the chocolate.  And here you thought you were being healthy by picking oatmeal.  

A late night grocery run brought on the need to share something sweet.  ”Let’s split a cookie” was the bf’s request.  Because this brand seemed to be the only option at the co-op, I started to weigh my options and found that the only thing outrageous about this cookie is that it’s 480 calories a pop - that’s like my whole lunch!  

Moral of the story - if you’re going to indulge, make sure it feels like you’re indulging.  Half an oatmeal cookie doesn’t even register as dessert for me.  ALWAYS READ THE LABEL! (and one cookie should never = 2 servings you silly cookie makers)
