Eat This/Not That: Ice cream!

Ice Cream has to be one of the most amazing and worst things ever invented! Most amazing-because it’s my favorite food, and worst because I always crave it when I want to eat healthy 🙂 Anyways, this EAT THIS/NOT THAT post is about fast-food ice cream treats! Always be on the look out for those sneaky calorie bombs and diet busters-some treats can go over one thousand calories! (Especially shakes and blizzard treats) My favorite low calorie options include frozen yogurt, Oreo treats over m & m or Reese’s mix-ins to cut the calories; there are better options, but a girl has to have chocolate time to time!

  1. I often don’t count calories whilst I am eating a treat. It’s just amazing how many calories a cup of ice-cream contains! 🙁
    Amazing post. Looking forward to more from you 🙂

    1. It is pretty crazy :/. i find frozen yogurt has the best taste and nutrition, so i love indulging at self serve froyo places 🙂 I hope you have an awesome day and am glad you enjoy the post!

  2. I saw this link today in my inbox from Eat This Not That – they always have super helpful hints! I discovered an awesome ice cream alternative at Central Market to satiate my sweet tooth – it’s a line called Savoy Sorbet. Try it in Hibiscus Flower – SO yummy and sweet and all natural, to boot!

  3. Not sure how I feel about Eat This Not That sometimes…kinda torn because I almost want to call it “Just don’t eat this at all!” HA! But I don’t want to be Debbie Downer Food Police…plus it probably helps that I’m not a huge ice cream fan. 😛

    1. completely agree. I never crave greasy fried foods, it’s always the sweet taste of ice cream. Frozen yogurt is the easiest way to get by for a “healthy version,” if you don’t load on tons of toppings 🙂 Have an awesome day!
