Home made Ice Cream

I make my own ice cream using skim milk and Splenda. If I want chocolate, I use unsweetened cocoa powder, or just put in fresh fruit.

Preparing for the week.

After I grocery shop, I force myself to clean all my fruits and veggies. I use small storage containers that are flat and stack easily. When I am looking to snack, I am more likely to grab something healthy because it is ready.
