Hi, friends! So, like I promised in the last post where I shared my best tips on how to Look Great When You’re Tired – here’s that Healthy Low Calorie Chocolate Cookies Recipe!
Oh, and I so hope that these cookies will make you smile and will uplift your spirits! Because they’re only 56 calories, all-natural, healthy and only take 10 minutes to make (ok, and the 15 extra to bake)! So, what do you say about that? 🙂 I say… yes! Hmmm… especially for those days that go kind of blah… and you NEED a mood boost! 🙂
Well… although it’s usually rare for someone to have days and days of not feeling well (it’d probably mean that you’re just sick and need to rest no matter what), everyone certainly has the TIMES in a day when they are low energy or… well – just not in their best moods!
For instance for me that “blah time” begins at around 4-5 pm! At that time the day is ALMOST done, but hey – it’s not yet time to go to bed for good, right? So although I kind of KNOW that I need to stay up and be productive, my energy levels aren’t as high at this point as they were, say – in the morning! Another thing about this time is that unlike in the morning I don’t usually drink any coffee after lunch! I won’t go to sleep on-time if I do!
The Low-Calorie Chocolate Cookies!
But cookies like these, a cup of warm tea and a few minutes to myself (browsing online for the recipes 🙂 ) is usually enough to lift my spirits up and bring back the energy to do things that have to be done!
And how about you? What is your low-time during the day? And how do you lift up your spirits?
