Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies
Yes you read it right, cookies!!! One cookie only has 82 calories not mention all the fiber, protein, and good carbohydrates you get. These are a delicious treat, I love to have munch on one with a cup of cold glass of milk. I wanna brag up milk for a minute. Milk so good for you, its one of the best recovery drinks you can drink right after you get done with a workout. Milk is naturally nutrient-rich and balanced with a unique proportion of carbs and protein – in addition to the bone-boosting calcium, phosphorous and vitamin D. Milk is perfect as an afternoon snack – a great balance of quality protein and carbohydrates, mildly sweet and lots of nutrition. One cup mid-afternoon is not only easy and filling, but picks up your energy and helps get you to dinner without devouring the contents of a co-worker’s candy dish.
