Cookie Dough Bites
If you find yourself constantly trying to prove your worth to someone, you have already forgotten your value ~Unknown
Mic drop quote up there. I don’t know about you, however, at one time I struggled with trying to prove what others expected me to be. I would constantly try to show that I’m this image that others have made me in to be, while in actuality, I was not happy with who I was. I knew who I wanted to be, but I was too scared to step out of the “norm”, which in the long run, did not leave me feeling very valuable.
That’s not a fun place to be. What is a fun place to be, is realizing your worth and value are not found in the approval of others. Which in turn leads to a much happier lifestyle. Stop trying to constantly show others what you’re worth. If you are YOU, then those people who truly matter in your life, will automatically see it, and respect you even more for it.
That’s my motivational soap box moment that I hope helps someone who may feel like they have to prove their worth. Now let me tell you about these cookie dough bites.
I wasn’t sure what to call these, but I think this is a decent name because these are pretty much two bites worth. What I like about the cookie dough bites, these are a nice little sweet treat, they are a serving of healthy fats per ball (so you won’t feel bad about eating one…or two), and it’s only six ingredients. Another plus, the cookie dough bites are husband approved. I have a major sweet tooth, if you have not noticed just from looking around the blog, and while I wish I could eat everything cake, and not reap the results of eating everything cake, my waist does not agree with me. I like to keep some kind of healthier sweet treat around the house, especially with the holidays approaching. Healthier treats help me stay on track, so I do not over indulge in the sugar filled desserts that will be all over the place very soon. Notice I say “over indulge”, I’m human, a small piece or a bite is not going to kill me or my progress. Keep that in mind during the holidays.
