Here's what I ate at the Minnesota State Fair this year:
Perfect Pickle (deep fried pickle slices - about 8 )
1/2 Strawberry smoothie (sweetened strawberries, protein powder, ice)
1/2 dish of vanilla Nitro Ice Cream (no toppings)
That's it! Nothing else fried, nothing on a stick, nothing with chocolate or gooey-ness, nothing laden with fat (ok...thedeep fried pickles have fat, but compared to the deep fried cheese curds, they are a health food!).
To top that off, we walked about 8 miles at the fair (over 16,000 steps!). It also the first time that my fair experience wasn't all about food and it was one of my best fair visits ever!
Gee....old dogs can learn new tricks!
