You know, vanilla ice cream isn't BAD. Actually, I used to use it to boost my calories a bit when I wasn't quite making it into my caloric range for the day.
The trick is to know how much to eat. Learn what a serving looks like. Check out the calories and serving size on the container. You might be surprised!
Of course, when I did indulge in vanilla ice cream, I made sure it was GOOD vanilla ice cream. I didn't want to eat some crappy generic brand that was filled with high fructose corn syrup and nasty junk. So, I'd get a good, organic, locally made brand, with a very short ingredient list, that didn't have anything in it that I couldn't recognize. (No mystery chemicals, please.)
If vanilla ice cream is truly your favorite, make a place for it in your life, but like I said make sure you you eat a serving...not three servings (even though three servings would be awesome).
