Sweet Tooth: Go ahead. You know you want to.
Conscience: Don’t do it. There’s nothing in there that’s good for you. Plus, you know what they say: Once on the lips, forever on the hips.
Sweet Tooth: Oh, come on. It can’t be that bad.
Conscience: Remember your new skinny jeans?
Sweet Tooth: Wait a sec. There must be a smidge of fiber in that apple pie.
Before you start to wallow in regret, know this: There’s a way to please both your cravings and your conscience: The Protein Bakery.
Just like the name implies, each cookie or brownie is packed with protein — at least six grams. They’re also made with fiber, rolled oat flour, organic brown sugar, and other high-quality ingredients, so these little powerhouses can really flex some muscle.
But it’s the scrumptious flavors like classic chocolate chip, peanut butter, oatmeal cranberry, and chocolate cherry that are the icing on the cake. (Well, so to speak.)
That ought to keep both voices happy. No matter how you slice it.
