Here at Vegetariant, we fully support a good, healthy lifestyle that includes nutrient rich food, regular exercise, and lots of fun! That vague “definition” for healthy lifestyle can be interpreted in many ways and it should be. We all live our lives differently and we enjoy different things. For us, nutrient rich food includes vegetarian and pescatarian dishes. Regular exercise can be anything that gets you moving, whether it’s a gym class, working out with weights, running with your dog, or jumping on a trampoline. Do what you like and you’ll be motivated to keep exercise as a regular (and hopefully) daily part of your life. Finally, have fun! Fun comes in a vast variety of forms…it can be the food you make or eat, it can be your daily exercise, it can be a simple as a watching a comedy or hanging out with friends. What does this have to do with Oreos? Well, today is National Oreo Cookie Day, so we thought we’d celebrate and share 11 Reasons to LOVE Oreo Cookies!
Living a healthy lifestyle means maintaining balance in what you eat and what you do, as we discussed above. For us, part of being healthy means that you still indulge in things like desserts. That might mean that you consume fewer calories for the day and/or that you exercise more. Remember, it’s all about balance. One of our favorite desserts are Oreo Thins! Not only are they indulgent, but four cookies are only 140 calories. You can’t beat that! Furthermore, we think they’re the perfect cookie to creme ratio. There, we said it! Sorry Double Stuff Oreos, your cookie to creme ratios are way off.
