Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

You may already know this, but I love desserts. Like, a lot. I am the happiest version of myself when I’m in the kitchen, around chocolate chips, surrounded by flour and sugar, etc. Life is good.

My love for dessert runs so deep that growing up I would eat a chocolate Nutella sandwich for lunch every day — that is until my parent realized that feeding their child a chocolate sandwich every day was not healthy. I was a chubby kid.

This brings me to a question people always ask me: how do I enjoy desserts and maintain a healthy lifestyle?

My food philosophy can be summarized into one word: moderation. Eat what you love in moderation. Do you want that brownie? Go ahead, have some — but not the whole pan.

Aside from my dessert-addiction, I always fuel my body with real foods. I eat whole fruits & vegetables every day, water is the only drink I like, and working out (though not always fun) is a part of my daily routine. I feel good when I make sure to take care of my body. I’m sometimes called a health-freak, but this is my only body — I have to take care of it.

BUT, I do eat dessert every single day. Yes. Every. Day. Life’s too short for restrictions. Remember: moderation is key. 🙂

Now, make these cookies, but don’t eat all of them — tip: to stop yourself from eating all of your _____ share them with friends.
