It’s Girl Scout Cookie time, and while that would usually have me singing at the top of my lungs, this year not so much. I have put on a bit of pudding and need to lose about ten pounds. Now, I am not saying not to buy these scrumptious cookies, quite the opposite. I believe in the organization, I was a Girl Scout, and I believe it’s important to support them. But, I have a problem. You see, I can not eat just one cookie. No, I eat an entire box. I love them so much. Luckily, I have found a delicious alternative, and they are really good.
So, what is my solution? Luna Bars! These bars are made for women by women (the Girl Scouts would be so proud) and they are the best. They contain 70% organic ingredients and vitamins that meet the special needs of a woman’s body, and are available in yummy flavors. Here’s how they compare to my beloved scout cookies.
Surprisingly, the cookies have less calories than the bars, but Luna does offer more nutritional value. I was very surprised how much the Luna bars tasted like their Girl Scout cookie counterparts. I will still buy some Girl Scout cookies (the hubby can eat them) because I do think it’s a great thing to empower these girls and help them reach their goals. But, it’s nice to know there is an option out there that fills my craving for the most delicious cookies in the world.

Luna bars are sold individually or in boxes. I got these at Target for $5.89 per box (6 bars). The individual price was $1.09.
available at major drug and grocery stores.
And remember, you can support the Girl Scouts and still be healthy. Everything in moderation. Unfortunately, I have no self control when it comes to these iconic treats. But if you do, enjoy!
