Some of the most common New Year’s Resolutions have to do with health, food, and exercise. We promise ourselves we’ll lose weight, we promise ourselves we’ll start exercising, or we promise to cut out unhealthy foods. If only there were a naturally healthy cookie that would fit in with all of these resolutions!
The stroopwafel is just maybe the healthy cookie you are looking for. First, it isn’t strictly made to be healthy. That means it will actually taste good. Our stroopwafels have only 150 calories. They are low in sugar (10 g) and fat (7 percent).
Stroopwafels are favored by people who want to eat lean and still get the calories they need for serious exercise. In Bicycling, the online magazine, an article discusses how the stroopwafel has become a favorite of those who ride professionally in the Tour de France.
It’s no wonder that stroopwafels are considered a good choice for an athlete’s diet. They are delicious and won’t weigh you down.
If you are in a marathon, you are consuming 965 calories per hour (estimated for a 185-pound individual). If you are bicycling, that same person would burn 710 calories per hour. These athletes need to recharge and do it fast.
Other high-impact activities burn a lot of calories as well. Hiking earns an estimated 503 calories. Jogging or swimming burns about 590 calories. When you are in training for these activities, you have to learn how to keep your energy up.
If you are on the go, you need food that can go with you. Stroopwafels like ours are a great choice. Freshly baked, our stroopwafels don’t have the preservatives found in so many packaged foods. Yet we do offer them individually wrapped. This makes them easy to take with you when running, cycling, hiking, or just jogging.
When it comes to calories, fat, and all the other things that make people frown at foods, the stroopwafel is healthier than many alternatives. It is certainly healthier than that old standby, donuts. It has far less sugar than a typical muffin.
Good luck with all of your New Year’s resolutions! If you want a healthy cookie that is also delicious, you can try our stroopwafels. Cheers!
