"C is for cookie. That's good enough for me." - Cookie Monster
We probably couldn't live on cookies alone like our favorite blue monster, but wouldn't it be a childhood dream come true to at least give it a shot?
There are dozens of varieties of Oreos and Chips Ahoy! There are cookies as big as pizzas at every supermarket. You can get warm cookies delivered right to you any time of day. You can even get right down to business with some edible cookie dough - all the glory of raw cookie dough, without the fear of tossing your cookies because you ate uncooked ingredients.
There's also another famous saying, though - A moment on the lips, a lifetime on the hips. This is an unfortunate reality of an all-cookie diet.
At The Lift Box
, we're always looking for the responsible option that's a win-win. You can have your tasty snacks, but without all the guilt.
Sure, you potentially lose out on the stroll down the cookie aisle, plus all the wondering about how much Swedish Fish Oreos really taste like Swedish Fish. But there's still the rush of getting your Lift Box shipping notification and wondering what tasty treats will appear on your doorstep.
In May, Lift Box subscribers were treated to two varieties of protein cookies from Shrewd Food
for a mindboggling and taste bud-tantalizing snacking experience.
Somehow, the folks at Shrewd Food figured out a way to turn seven fruits and vegetables (equivalent to one serving) into their bite-size Oat & Chip Protein Cookies, complete with probiotics and prebiotics to keep your digestive health in check, too.
The cookies are free of artificial flavors, colors and preservatives. They're packed with 8g of protein per serving, with just 200 calories. Even better, they're great for the whole family and a clever way to sneak in some extra fruits and veggies. Shhhhhh.
If chocolate chip isn't your thing, the Oat & Berry Protein Cookies give you a similar flavorful crunch with a different type of sweetness, plus the nutritional benefits of 10 different fruits and vegetables, again with 8g of protein and just 200 calories per serving.
Imagine - something that's high-protein, low-carb, low-sugar and low-calorie but tastes awesome and will satisfy your sweet tooth, whether you're just trying to be responsible, following a low-carb diet or need to skip the dessert table for other health reasons.
All Lift Box subscribers in May got two 1.65-ounce bags of cookies. That's the whole premise of the monthly box, of course. It's your chance to try some great snacks, supplements and accessories you may not have heard about or tried otherwise. If you don't love them, now you know. If you do, you know that, too, and you can order more.
If you like the cookies as much as we did, visit shrewdfood.com
to order more. You can make a one-time order or choose from a variety of subscription options to keep them coming!
But wait, there's more.
The Shrewd Food menu doesn't end with cookies. Well, technically, that would be a delightful end to any delicious day, but the Shrewd crew has all your snack needs covered, well before it's time to wind down with some milk and cookies.
Shrewd Food also offers seven flavors of Protein Puffs (Brick Oven Pizza, Baked Cheddar, Siracha Cheddar, Nacho Cheese, Sour Cream & Onion, Strawberries & Cream and Cookies & Cream). All you have to do is choose between sweet or savory. Or just get both!
The Keto-friendly puffs have 90 calories and 12-13g of protein per serving. They're gluten-free, non-GMO, soy-free, egg-free, Kosher dairy, free of peanuts and tree-nuts and void of artificial flavors, colors and preservatives. You can get eight single-serving bags for $14.99 or go for the subscription.
If you've got a few more calories left for the day or need an extra level of sweetness, Shrewd Food has taken their delicious puffs and dipped them in chocolate - milk or dark. Protein Dippers. Wowza. There's even a Keto-friendly version made with sugar-free chocolate. Did they think of everything?
Finally, because, why not, there's Protein Croutons (Parmesan Herb) to turn any meal up a notch or two. A great addition to, well, anything, the croutons also are low-calorie and low-carb. Honestly, you may just want to skip the salad and have the croutons for lunch. We won't judge. As long as you share.
The May offerings from Shrewd Food are just two examples of the hundreds of snacks and products that have been featured in The Lift Box. It's the ultimate try-before-you-buy opportunity.
Insider tip: If you liked the May offerings from Shrewd Food, or you're curious about their protein puffs, make sure to get your order in for the June 2021 edition of The Lift Box. The puffs will be making an appearance!
Everything that appears in the monthly box has been tested and vetted by the Lift Box staff for taste, quality, comfort and durability, but it is feedback and suggestions from subscribers that often dictates what some of the products might be.
A monthly subscription to The Lift Box
is $39.95. Each box includes a shirt and a variety of items to help make every workout a personal best.
