Every day, you wake up with an endless list of choices to make. You’re busy, you’re driven, you’re staying on track with fitness, nutrition, health, and the like. Sometimes the right choices are easy: fresh fruit over packaged chemically-enhanced candy; a fun new exercise program over a technique you know you hate, etc. But sometimes there are the “bad” choices that just seem so good (except once you make them, you instantly regret them and they can sometimes totally derail you from your healthy path).
What exactly am I getting at here? Cookie dough. That’s right. Gooey, chocolate-chippy, mouth-watering cookie dough. Look at it:
How can you say no? Easy. Don’t. Say yes–just doctor the recipe up a bit. We’ve created a version of this deliciousness that incorporates only healthy (but still yummy) ingredients into the recipe, including Shakeology. Why not add superfood nutrition into something usually consisting of fats, sugars, and processed ingredients? This Shakeology Cookie Dough recipe has been tried and tested (several times, for science) by all of us at Beachbody and can safely say this is our new favorite snack.
