Exclamation Too Many Oreos!

Hello!
So Since going vegan (again) I noticed I keep eating oreos because they're like the only junk food in my house that's vegan... And like it'd be fine if I had like 1 oreos every few days maybe but I have like 4 a day and I find it embarrassing but they're the only thing that settles my craving of chocolate or cookies or cream or something like that. And I even have some vegan chocolate but like Oreos just do the trick and I crave them so much now what should I do XD

Hi Kaitlyn,

Assuming that you're only eating 4 Oreo cookies per day, and no other junk food, I'd say it's perfectly OK!

Here is the nutrition data for Oreo cookies: https://www.fatsecret.com/calories-n...ndwich-cookies

The nutrition data is for 3 cookies - just multiply by 1.33 to see totals for 4 cookies.

Calories aren't too bad. The 4 Oreos contain a total of 212 calories. Assuming that you're eating at least 1800 calories per day, the 212 calories are only 12% of your daily calories. Not too bad.

Saturated fat also looks OK. The 4 Oreos together contain about 2.7 grams of saturated fat. The American Heart Association recommends that you get less than 6% of calories from saturated fat: https://healthyforgood.heart.org/Eat...Saturated-Fats . For an 1800 calorie diet, this is less than 12 grams of saturated fat per day.

Aren't you the one who was eating the Food For Life chocolate bars? I have them for a treat once in a great while and find they satisfy my chocolate cravings. Last week I whipped up some frozen banana, cocoa powder (the kind you find in the baking section of most groceries, which is totally vegan though not always ethically sourced), maple syrup, and almond milk and water for a chocolate smoothie and that was pretty good!

When I first went vegan, Vegweb was a happening site with a great forum and recipes. The recipe index is still there, and here is a very easy recipe I used to make to satisfy my chocolate cravings. The key is the peanut butter which makes the chocolate more rich and creamy like milk chocolate and less bitter like dark chocolate can be. I couldn't always find vegan chocolate chips back then, so would sometimes leave that out and just use the cocoa powder in the recipe and it still came out fantastic!

Who eats only 4 Oreo cookies, that's like eating only 5 potato chips out of the bag

When I found that Oreos were vegan, I bought some of the thin style ones last week. I ate the whole package in two days, unfortunately, just could not stop.

Yeah, I can't buy oreos because if I do, I run out of both oreos and Almond milk overnight.

Seriously, enjoy your oreos. You'll probably get tired of them before to much longer and move on to Ben & Jerry's vegan Almond brittle ice cream!

I went through a huge Oreo phase a couple years ago and now I'm sick of them at least for now, maybe you'll burn out on them eventually?
