Chewy Paleo Vegan Cookies that melt in your mouth! Made with cashew butter (or your favorite nut butter), flaxseed and just a bit of coconut flour!
Hidy Ho from Chicago! I’m hanging with blogging friends turned real life friends Jess and Erin for the weekend. WOOT. MAN does it feel good to take a little break and just have some fun this weekend. House painting, moving, work, LIFE is all catching up with me and this break could not have come at a better time. I feel like this spring season has just been crazy, anyone else?!
I mean, the fact that I may have eaten four of these vegan cookies while photographing them kind of has to do with stress… Not an exaggeration. I mean they are smaller so I suppose if I were going to make myself feel better about the situation, I could equate four smaller cookies to two regular cookies and that is pretty normal… Right? Just agree.
I typically have some pretty good self control but these days I have been a little all over the place. And that is okay, I’m not worried about it. I’m not trying to get in more exercise or ban cookies for a week–F that shi. Those days are long gone. Do I try to get more greens in throughout the day then? Yes. Drink more water? Yes. Restrict certain foods? NOPE. A few years ago I would have likely forced myself to get in a workout and not eat any more sweets for the rest of the week. Fortunately we’re past that. And I hope most of you are too. What I am trying to say is life is too short to worry about those things. And when you’re in the thick of it, it is hard to realize that there is another way to function–I do get that. But I think it’s great there is this movement around wellness and feeling good from within, but also remember that looks different for everyone. The more you consume all of this information on the internet and social media, the easier it is to compare what you’re doing to what everyone else is doing. I’m sure we’ve all been there. Having that self-awareness plays a huge role in being able to catch yourself comparing, as well as just telling yourself that what you’re doing is good enough. And you are good enough in this very moment.
ANYWAYS… On to these chewy vegan cookies! [Read More…]
