Cookies are a Health Food.

Cookies are a health food.

Yup.

Think I’m crazy?

Well, I might be.

Cookies are a health food.

To me, being healthy is about both HOW you eat the food and WHAT food you eat.

Being healthy is having a good relationship with food.

What does that mean?

It’s means that you don’t let food control your life. That you enjoy to eat and you don’t worry about what you’re putting into your mouth.

That you think of food (mostly) as fuel for living your life and doing the things that you love.

That you don’t feel guilt after eating cookies.

That you enjoy eating cookies.

That the cookies don’t own you.

So, you see– cookies can be a health food.

A part of a healthy food routine.

Cookies become a junk food when you have a bad relationship with food.

When you feel guilty about eating them.

When you regret eating them.

When you take drastic measures to make up for eating them.

Cookies are a health food when they are a part of a balanced food routine.

Being obsessed with dieting and not eating cookies is, in my opinion, more unhealthy than just eating the cookies.

There’s much more that goes into a healthy food routine than just the food itself.

If you’re eating ALL healthy foods, but you’re not happy or you feel restricted, that’s not a healthy food routine.

If you’re eating foods that help you feel healthy and happy and have a balanced approach to “not-as-healthy” foods, that, to me, is a healthy food routine.
