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!!!
