Eat This! Not That! Holiday Cookie Intuitive Eating Edition

Eat This! Not That! Intuitive Eating Christmas Edition

Hanukkah has passed and it’s almost Christmas which means you’ve most likely already encountered holiday cookies. If you’re lucky, you’ve been somewhere there’s an assortment of cookies. You may be wondering which cookies are “best” to eat. That’s quite simple! The best cookies to eat are the ones you enjoy! It doesn’t matter if they have frosting, are chocolate, or have refined sugar in them. A lower calorie option that you don’t prefer isn’t going to satisfy you and can lead to a binge later on. You may end up eating multiple lower calorie cookies when one regular cookie may have satisfied you.
We generally don’t eat cookies because we’re hungry or looking to get vitamins and minerals. We eat cookies because they taste good and make us feel good. We may bake cookies during the holidays as a family tradition and a way to get closer to our loved ones.
