How Can Cookie Dough be Nutritious?
Who say's cookie dough or cookies can't be nutritious? Sara's Cosmic Cookie Dough puts this myth on its head. These nutritious cookies are delicious and good for you. Not only do they provide a great energy boost for an active on the go lifestyle, but they're packed with nutrients that our body's crave. This cookie dough suppresses appetite encouraging a healthy waistline, increases energy and boosts your metabolism. They also improve heart health and immune health while providing trace minerals and rich antioxidants. Here's why...
Made predominately from Almonds, Sara's Cosmic Cookie Dough has a good amount of healthy protein along with healthy fats. Did you know that almonds are a Superfood? They're low in carbohydrates, high in fiber, vitamins and minerals and a high source of protein. Often considered a natural powerhouse when it comes to blood sugar management, heart health and even fighting some types of cancer. Studies have also found that almonds are even better than complex carbohydrates when it comes to losing weight and maintaining a slimmer waistline. Who doesn't want that out of their cookies?
Sara's Cosmic Cookie Dough also contains everyone's favorite anti-oxidant rich Superfood, Dark Chocolate. Dark Chocolate is packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phytochemicals, not to mention all the free radical compounds that help your body fight against environmental toxins. The antioxidants found in dark chocolate are known to improve hearth health, improve cognitive function and decrease bad cholesterol (LDL) while increasing good cholesterol (HDL). It's no wonder so many protein bars have dark chocolate in them, it's nutrition is impressive!
Sara's Cosmic Cookie Dough also uses Cold-Pressed Organic Grapeseed Oil for its healthy fat which is rich in antioxidants, minerals and vitamin E. It also makes it a great fat for its low carb, high fiber content and is great for hair and skin. Studies have shown that Grapeseed Oil raises good (HDL) cholesterol, lowers bad (LDL) cholesterol and lowers triglycerides, the effects of which may lower your risk of cardiovascular disease and impotency. It's heart healthy, is anti-inflammatory, benefits diabetics and recent studies suggests it may help in preventing lung, prostate, colon, breast and stomach cancer. But don't be fooled, how it's processed matters A LOT and these health benefits can go out the door if it's not organic and cold-pressed.
Sara's Cosmic Cookie Dough is sweetened with organic dark Maple Syrup which as it turns out, is also a bit of a Superfood. While this is a sugar, when used in appropriate amounts, maple syrup has a lot of nutritional benefits... It contains 24 important antioxidants and minerals that we are often lacking in our food today. The darker the maple syrup, the more beneficial antioxidants you get. It supports heart health, cardiovascular health, fights inflammatory disease, improves male reproductive health, strengthens the immune system and is a good alternative to sugar for improved digestion. It also gets a lower score on the glycemic index.
Even the pink Himalayan salt in Sara's Cosmic Cookie Dough has many health benefits and should be consumed daily. Why? Because it's rich in 84 trace minerals which are becoming harder and harder to obtain from the foods we eat due to the lack of nutrient-rich soil. Himalayan salt is an excellent source of electrolytes, helps avoid dehydration and balances fluids, sharpens vital brain functions, muscle and nervous system function, aids in digestive health and helps your body absorb vitamins and minerals.
If you're into Sara's Cosmic Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, it would be amiss to leave out the health virtues of organic Oats... Since Oats are incredibly nutritious and among the healthiest grains on earth. They are a gluten-free whole grain packed with important vitamins, minerals, fiber and antioxidants. The health benefits of consuming oats include weight loss, lower blood sugar levels and a reduced risk of heart disease. Oats are also good for heart health and can lower cholesterol levels and protect LDL cholesterol from damage. They may also improve insulin sensitivity and help lower blood sugar levels.
Our Hot Chocolate Chip cookie dough is loaded with my favorite superfood, organic fair trade cacao. Raw organic cacao has 40 times the antioxidants of blueberries making it a powerhouse for fighting off damaging free radicals. It's also the highest plant-based source of iron, is full of magnesium and has more calcium than cows milk. These nutrients are important for a healthy heart, strong bones and turns glucose into energy helping your brain stay clear and focused. To top it off, it's also a natural anti-depressant and mood enhancer giving you feelings of well being and happiness.
So, you see, Sara's Cosmic Cookie Dough is as nutritious as it is delicious. It's a guilt-free cookie that fits a healthy lifestyle.// ]]>
