I try to maintain a balance of putting a large amount of nutrient-rich, alkaline foods into my body along with indulging occasionally on my favorite foods. Brands that make that “splurging” and sweet-tooth-satisfying healthy, mindful and power packed don’t go unseen by me. I so much appreciate what Hail Merry is doing here. To sum it up, right off the bat, I can’t think of a sweet, healthy treat I’d rather reach for than these Hail Merry Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Macaroons. Words don’t do them justice. They are an EXPERIENCE. Despite the fact that they are a “treat”, they are pretty macro balanced. These macaroons have 10g of fat, 9g of carbs (6g of sugar) and 2 g of protein per 2 macaroons (1 serving). They are dense little bundles of pure goodness. They’re also rife with organic & raw ingredients. Organic & Raw are king in my world! Low in sugar is also something that I search for and am pretty mindful of. I don’t consciously count calories or sugar grams, but I know how my body feels with I overload it with sugar–so I stay tuned into that. I see these macaroons as the best option I’ve seen out there for a satisfying, alive (not packed with highly-processed, heated crud), healthy treats. I can grab a bag of these and feel really good about the ingredients. If I were making these at home to snack on, I would cut the sugar content in half and add some protein powder (Hey Hail Merry, next product?!) 🙂 For the dessert use, though, they are healthful, tasty perfection.
