My Mundane Musings

Growing up I longed for the fast paced life of big city life and corporate America. Now I’m a stay at home mom of 4 in a small rural community! And I wouldn’t have it any other way! (At least for now).

A great snack… July 2, 2008

Filed under: food — Rebekah Sanders @ 11:35 am

So, yesterday was a tumultuous day. I ended up eating less than 1200 calories when all was said and done. When I’m stressed or upset, I just can’t eat. And if I do eat? Well, it’s not pretty.  I want to binge on things that will make me feel worse. Ice cream being the biggest thing!

And oh how I’m missing my ice cream. I love it. Absolutely adore a good ice cream treat. My favorite is Ben & Jerry’s Vermonty Python – coffee ice cream with cookie crumb swirls and little chocolate cows! Excuse me for a moment while I dry the drool off the keyboard!

Anyway – I knew that if I didn’t figure out some sort of healthy alternative, I was NEVER going to make it through my month of healthy eating. Ice cream would be my downfall. I could eat it EVERY day and not miss a beat. Well, not until I was too big to actually walk to the refrigerator to get it. But isn’t that what kids are for?

Ok, I know, I have issues.

Anyway, yesterday, we bought grapes. And these grapes are AMAZING! The perfect amount of juiciness and the perfect bit of tartness. I took half of them and promptly put them in the freezer.

After my walk this morning, I wanted something cold. I wanted ice cream. I was seriously contemplating a popsicle. But then I decided I would try some frozen grapes!

Oh my word! DELICIOUS!!! They satisfied that craving for something cold and sweet. AND it was good for me!!!

    If you get too big to walk to the fridge you could always get yourself a HoverRound.
    *shivers at the thought*

    My next door neighbor has suggested that too about the grapes but I haven’t tried it. Did you used red or green? I love doing that with blueberries! I can’t wait until I can get to out to pick some and freeze a bunch to last me through the winter.
