If you know me at all you know I love me some good ice cream! I grew up eating ice cream almost daily and apparently I grew up on extremely larger than normal size servings of the stuff. We would get a bowl and fill it to the rim and I never knew that wasn’t the norm nor did I ever question if this was good for me or not, I just ate it and enjoyed myself. Well my love for ice cream hasn’t stopped, but I am now fully aware that it isn’t the best thing for me to eat every single night before I go to bed… how do I know you may ask? Well I think it was my pants who told me first, It seems the older I get the more I can’t keep up with my terrible eating habits quite like I used to 😦 But I have tried to quit all things yummy or bad for me cold turkey before and that got me all kinds of ornery, crazy sad, and depressed. But I have also been steadily putting on the pounds over the last year and it’s really starting to get to me. I am trying to figure out how to manage things without going on some crazy diet. I made a promise to myself I wouldn’t go out and do the next fad diet again, I am SOO over dieting! So I decided it was time to crack down just a little and be a little more aware of what I am eating. I will never deprive myself of the good things in life, I just need to learn to not eat them so often and not as much either!
I saw a commercial for Blue Bunny, Bunny Snacks and I thought this is probably the size of ice cream I should be eating and these probably wont be very good, but I will give them a try. I am willing to try almost anything at least once:P ( well, treat wise at least) So I bought the vanilla Brownie and Salted Caramel Pretzel ones fully expecting to be disappointed and I was pleasantly surprised! These little things are delicious and although small, they seem to curb my ice cream craving without totally messing up my whole days calorie count…If i was actually counting them that is 😛
Yes they still have fat and carbs and all the other things that people freak out about, but at 170 calories, I feel good about eating one of these when the mood strikes, and I don’t feel guilty at all! If you have a sweet tooth like I do, you should totally give these a try! Now the only hard part is trying to not grab a second one! LOL Why do I have such a sweet tooth???
