Are Cookies Good for You?

Sugar and butter — these pop into most people’s brains whenever they hear the word “cookie.” Before you start to feel guilty about your love for cookies, know that your all-time favorite snacks are actually good for you. To prove this point, check out the best reasons why enjoying your cookies isn’t such a bad idea after all.

1. They give you energy.

Instead of indulging in unhealthy snacks, consider snacking on cookies because they contain carbohydrates and sugar that can provide you with enough energy to start your day. The best part is, you get to satisfy your sweet tooth while you power yourself up with just 2 to 3 cookies in the morning.

2. They’re rich in protein.

Cookies have a rich protein content. Your body metabolizes the protein that you get from your favorite cookies and converts it into energy, which your body needs to develop new tissue and muscles. If you don’t get enough protein from your regular diet, eating cookies will make up for this.

3. Most of them are gluten-free.

Most cookies are usually made without gluten (an allergen, which is commonly found in wheat and oats) so it won’t cause an allergic reaction to people who are allergic to gluten. With that, you can eat it whenever you want — in the morning, afternoon, or evening for your midnight snack.

4. They improve bone health.

Calcium and potassium are the two main nutrients that play a big role in bone health. Cookie dough has a lot of potassium content. Enjoying your cookies and dunking them into a glass of warm milk will help you steer clear of osteoporosis or any bone-related issues down the road.

5. Baking them relieves stress.

Lastly, baking cookies is a great way to relieve stress. When you concentrate on measuring and kneading dough, the action helps your mind stay calm and focused. As your mind wanders away from the stresses of your everyday life, you become more relaxed and rejuvenated.

 

Use Your Clunker to Help Breast Cancer Patients

If baking and eating those mouth-watering cookies help relieve you of stress, how much more stress-free you’ll be if you get rid of your old car that has been giving you nothing but trouble? To make you feel even better, turn over that vehicle to us at Breast Cancer Car Donations and we’ll use it to help in the treatment of needy breast cancer patients in your community.

Once we get hold of your donation, we will sell it via auction. We’ll then use the generated funds to support the life-saving programs and services of our breast cancer-focused nonprofit partners.

Thanks to your gift, these IRS-determined 501(c)3 nonprofits will be able to deliver comprehensive breast health services to more of their beneficiaries. In particular, uninsured and destitute breast cancer patients will have a chance to get various types of cancer treatment and follow-up care for free. Other beneficiaries can take advantage of free cancer screening, and cancer prevention and education services that our charity partners provide as well.

Making a car donation to us is the simplest and most convenient way to dispose of an unwanted vehicle. You can make your donation in the comfort of your home with just a short phone call to us.

In exchange for your contribution, we’ll mail to you your 100% tax-deductible sales receipt a couple of weeks after your car gets sold. With this receipt, you can claim your top tax deduction in the next tax season.

We’ll also haul off your unwanted vehicle for free at a date, time, and place of your convenience. You can avail yourself of this service wherever you reside in the country since Breast Cancer Car Donations operates in all 50 states.

However, the best reward you’ll get is not a material thing. It’s the joy and satisfaction you’ll experience, knowing that your donation will be used to help save lives.

We accept nearly all types of vehicles, including one that is no longer in the best of shape.
