Love affair - ice cream

Tuesday, April 12, 2011

Ever since I got pregnant with my daughter, I have had an intense craving for sweets. Previously, I only wanted salty things, fries, chips, fried chicken, etc. The second I got pregnant I wanted ONLY sugar and sweets. This is how I knew it was DH's kid lol. Seriously though, DH and I went to Cold Stone Creamery probably 2-3 times per WEEK when I was pregnant, hence the disaster I am in.

I'm trying to moderate everything now, but I still have this love affair with ice cream. And GOOD ice cream. We've got a local place that has this flavor that is a mix of everything. Creamy vanilla ice cream as a base, heath bars crunched up, chocolate chips, and maybe some kind of nuts. It's a completely DIVINE mix of creamy sweet goodness with crunchy satisfacation.

Today, the craving hit, and hit BAD. Normally, this would push me over the edge calorie wise, but due to the awesome challenge of eating more fruits and veggies I happily went and got my ice cream....and stayed at the LOW end of my range no less.

    I've yet to find a good substitute for full fat ice cream. The best I've got is Tofuti but it doesn't taste like ice cream just fills the void... I tried to be a super good girl and get those little choco vanilla swirl cups but I ate 4 in one sitting and realized that is not the way to go... (what is it about a wooden spoon that makes for wonderful ice cream??)

    I've decided if I'm gonna get ice cream I'm going to get GOOD ice cream. Lol And you know... not every night... (man I miss being pregnant- but just for the food :))

    Good luck! Just remember not to deprive yourself entirely! emoticon

    Wow. Ice cream is my bad. I'm done with most processed foods. I gave up white flour and sugar and thus have no more craving for things I used to eat. But ice cream still beckons.
    So my allowed treats include ice cream that has only all natural ingredients. That is still a big improvement over what I used to eat.
    Good luck!
