Some days just call for chocolate chip cookies. Or tubs of peanut butter. Or both.
These cookies are meant for such days.
Simultaneously, imagine a peanut butter/banana/chocolate chip combo. They can certainly make one of the more perfect cookies in this world.

While peanut butter exists to make some of us personally happy, it unfortunately lands the bad rap of packing an overwhelming amount of calories. How are you supposed to eat it every day when it insists on behaving this way? Thankfully with this noodle salad, you can actually satisfy your peanut butter cravings without going on an all-out calorie binge. These noodles are bulked up with tons of vegetables – bell pepper, bok choy, and edamame so that you get all of the delicious flavor of peanut sauce without quite as many calories. Definitely a win/win lunch or dinner.

So, whilst I like to be healthy most of the time, there is always room for a little sugar in my life. In my opinion, if you regularly deny yourself something (in this case sugar) you’ll end up craving it even more than you would normally. Therefore, I follow the mantra of ‘a little now and again’ and that seems to keep any major sugar cravings at bay. Read More
