It’s officially after Christmas now so we ALL need to go on a diet and lose all those pounds we gained on the 25th. We all need to do fasted cardio, eat romaine lettuce with mustard sauce and replace our milk in smoothies with diet coke. We then will replace our snacks with chewing gum and do 1000 burpees every hour, on the hour. Before we sleep, we’ll quote fitness idol ‘Kate Moss’ and say-
“Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels.”
The above paragraph, my friends is a load of rubbish. Let’s not even get started on that statement from Kate Moss either….

So which ‘superfoods’ did I pick?
Pumpkin seeds- Because I’m over canned pumpkin, but not their seedy counterparts.
Cranberries- Because Goji berries tried to steal their thunder.
Rolled oats- Because Ryan Gosling was quoted saying he ate oats for breakfast.
Shredded coconut- Because anything coconut clearly means it’s superior to everything out there.
Chocolate chips- Because my sister said in the movie ‘Legally Blonde’, the main character said that chocolate has endorphins and endorphins make you happy.
Please don’t judge my sister on her movie taste. She was deprived as a child.
These all combined in a delicious, no bake cookie form = Healthy no bake superfoods breakfast cookies!
