How to Counteract a Face Collision with Oreos

For the most part, many of our efforts are concentrated on being healthy and working toward living the best life we possibly can.

There are times however, where the new Spring Oreo Cookies get in the way of those efforts, and we eat a few too many (completely hypothetical situation).

According to SELF.com, the best way to counteract a binge is as follows. Something to keep in mind I guess, for all of you who cannot control your impulse to eat an insane amount of daffodil-colored icing sandwiched between two chocolate wafers. I, for one, am not one of those people.

“You overdid it on sugary carbs like cake and cookies, and now you’ve got the shakes. To feel better fast, nibble on foods high in protein and complex carbs such as yogurt and berries; these take longer to digest and are released slowly into the bloodstream, which helps your blood sugar even out.”

Looks like I may be eating a lot of chicken today …

    I seemed to remember shopping with my daughters yesterday only to purchase the new Spring Oreo Cookies for my sons and tons of greens to make juice. Here’s how I remember the day…we dropped Amanda off at her apartment because she’s finishing up the semester and her college days, we went to your apartment to make juice when you said,”we better not leave these in the car they may melt” (yeah okay!!)….well after a bunch of juicing you said, “I may have to steal one of those cookies from you”(I’m sure your plan all along!!). I left you a baggie as you kept saying “no really mommy only a few!” I said, “well share some with Dan” (I wonder how many he got!!). I no sooner left your apartment when I received a picture of my lovely daughter, an oreo in her mouth and chocolate all over her face!! I’m curious why that wasn’t the photo you used for this post??! I went home, unpacked the groceries and left again to pick Isaac up from track. I no sooner got in the door when Luke said, “mom look at these cookies!! I swear I only had two!!” I laughed so hard and then told him that YOU were the thief!! I love you!!

    So true about the oreos. I can’t even buy them, or else they are gone in a day. Of course i like to blame my husband for the empty container 🙂 But in reality it is me 😦 Those things are addicting. They must put something in that yellow icing!

  3. I found your blog today via Blog Her. I really like it. I look forward to coming back for more.

  7. Emily — I agree!!! What the heck could it be?! Hmmm….I always put the blame on someone else, too! Good thinking. (;

    Erin— Thanks so much for reading! I am glad you are enjoying it.

    Tatum— I will definitely have to look into that. Thank you for the suggestion, and thanks for reading!

    Colleen— Aren’t they just the best?!

    Amanda — Stay outta this. You are just an unknowing, sister-bystander, so SHHH! (Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha….)

    Why is it that when the icing is a different color, they taste better? I never buy cookies and snacks on a regular basis,only as a treat. And the funny thing is that I treated my family to oreos this week (they were on sale, 4 for $10). Oreos last an average of 48 hours in my home. We got a few extra hours out of this package, I bought them tues. morning and they lasted until Thurs. afternoon. Can you imagine if I did buy them on a regular basis?

    Actullay if you read any of Paul Pilsners books, an economist, articles regarding food science you will no longer be amazed and realize marketing and food science strategy’s that the oreo cookie is made with additives that make you crave more intentionally.
