Way back when, when I was an actress, there was a gal in our theatre group who was in the most amazing shape. She was fit, and toned, and radiated good health. I couldn’t help myself – I had to ask her what her secret was.
She told me that her secret was discipline. She never missed a workout, she ate a diet filled with fresh vegetables, lean, clean protein, avoided starches and empty calories, drank plenty of water … you know the story, right?
But then she told me what her secret for staying disciplined was. Every afternoon she bought and ate a big Mrs. Fields Chocolate Chip Cookie. She explained that by knowing she had this treat waiting for her, it made it easier to do those last few reps at the gym or avoid pasta with cream sauce.
There is something to be said for her “strategy.” And hey, it worked for her!
I set out to create as best I could a gluten free duplicate to those famous chocolate chip cookies. Is it an exact replica? Who knows?
