Butter Cookies for Loading days …

Loading is so important to do. Those who don’t load correctly have hunger for the first 3-4 days while those who load well report low-to-no hunger. Read more on loading on a recent post. One item that is good to load with is butter but it’s hard to get a lot of that into your system unless you load up the butter of veggies or bread (not popular on loading days) so here a way to get butter in! Eat to capacity! Good for those on the run or something to nibble on to help get loaded.

Butter Cookies
1/2 lb butter
1 C. Sugar
2 C. Flour
1/2 tsp soda
1/2 tsp Almond or lemon extract
Preheat oven to 350* Mix ingredients in order given. Make in balls the size of walnuts and press down. Bake until light brown.

Thank you Lisa for this recipe. Glad it worked well for you!

    I am finding conflicting information on the loading phase. One area on this site says not to eat carbs and sugar during loading, but rather high healthy fat. Another area says to eat all of the pizza and ice cream etc you can. This recipe uses flour, can someone clarify why the resources are conflicting? Thanks!

      There are no rules to loading. Some prefer healthy loading especially if they are further along in their weight loss and are eating mostly processed free. You can load on high fats too capacity is the general rule. Whether those are healthy fats or not is up to your loading plan.. The key is to capacity. 🙂
