I would love to introduce you to my new favorite post-workout snack: NuGo Protein Cookies! I was introduced to NuGo Nutrition at a wellness event in the Hamptons this past June. Ever since my first bite shortly after the event, I was hooked. The dense, delicious cookie taste had me ordering a box that same day. My husband also loved them as did a few close friends who also had the opportunity to try them. Available on Amazon here.
Everyone can enjoy NuGo Protein Cookies, whether you are vegetarian or vegan. Though I am neither, I do prefer to have certain vegan-friendly foods more often than not. The cookies are also gluten-free!
I like to enjoy my NuGo cookies post-workouts in the late mornings or afternoons after SUP. They really hit the spot after an invigorating Spinning class or a hot kettlebell boot camp. They come in four flavors: Double Chocolate Chip, Dark Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter Chocolate, and Oatmeal Raisin. My favorite? Double Chocolate Chip!
These chewy, delicious cookies are quite big! I usually split them in half and enjoy one half in the morning, and the other half after a lite dinner. Each cookie has about 12 grams of fiber and 16 grams of protein, and do not contain soy, eggs, dairy, artificial sweeteners, palm oil, or margarine. To make things even sweeter, the cookies are packed with great taste and the Double Chocolate Chip and Dark Chocolate Chip are loaded with mini chocolate chips.
A little tip I recommend (I will be doing this more during the warmer months), is heating your cookie in the microwave for twenty seconds. If I am feeling a little extra hungry, I pair my cookies with sliced bananas or a teaspoon of almond butter with chia seeds.
