We Won't Give Up Sweets

Jay and I like to think we are fairly healthy individuals. We do our best to stick to exercise routines, we try to eat whole foods and whole grains, and in general believe that all is well in moderation. But one item we struggle with is sweets. It's been our weakness for as far back as I can remember.

We love dessert and aren't willing to give up our sweet tooth. So we've decided to get on board with Michael Pollan's food rule #39, "Eat all the junk food you want as long as you cook it yourself". He basically says, there's nothing wrong with eating sweets or pastries, as long as you are willing to prepare them because chances are good, it won't be every day.

For our first attempt, we tried our hand at salted chocolate chip cookies (using this recipe from Stonesoup). To our surprise, it was really quite easy and extremely satisfying. The cookies not only tasted like heaven, but it felt incredibly fulfilling to have a successful baking experience!

We made it and we ate it!
