Smart For Life Cookie

Thanks to Smart for Life for sending me their chocolate chip cookies to sample. Smart for Life is known for their "cookie" and "cupcake" diets. To be quite honest, I am not a fan of the so-called "cookie" diets or other fad diets out there. I would probably not last a day on these types of diets. As you can see from the picture below, the cookies are only 100 calories each and they are very small (smaller than my palm), so I personally could never eat these as a meal and feel full... I couldn't probably eat them as a snack either. However, I ate these cookies as part of a snack today with my protein shake and they are delicious treat to enjoy... and a much healthier alternative to the traditional chocolate chip cookie. They are all natural, 60% organic and contain 6 grams of protein per cookie!

The cookies come in two flavors:
* chocolate chip- they sent me this flavor.
* oatmeal raisin
