Ok….let’s all be honest?! It’s too darn hot out there and one of the quickest and best cool offs in ICE CREAM! Since moving to Ohio, we have discovered Graeter’s! OH MY!!! Let’s look at the nutrition- we will use my favorite flavor, the Toffee Chip:
Notice that the serving size is 1/2 a cup?? There is always more than a 1/2 cup, and I am always inclinded to get a double scoop in a waffle cone. Which by the way has 160 calories , 4grams of fat, 29grams of carbs, and 70milligrams of sodium.
OH MY, again!!! We have soo busted the day with this one. That is 740 calories in one waffle cone with two scoops!!! And there is NO MENTION of the Calcium content. Therefore, it must be miniscule.
Jokingly, I have been heard saying, “Let’s have ice cream for dinner!” “I am getting my daily calcium!” What was I thinking?? I could’ve pigged out for those numbers. And, if one lower impact Zumba Fitness class burns 800 calories, then we are in a world of hurt. Seems we can’t just have ice cream for dinner, we have to make the ice cream our MEAL OF THE DAY! Just one meal…I think NOT!! Let’s look at the sorbet’s?
This is a better choice, but HOW do you walk into the Graeter’s Store and NOT buy that wonderful creamy ice cream? I think this would be a very hard challenge, but it is the best one. We could just avoid the place all together and while grocery shopping buy the best choice to satisfy your creamy cool off treat…FUDGESCICLES!!! I googled them and they are by far the best choice.
Being an eternal fat girl means I am constantly reading labels and assessing the nutrition and calories in every morsel I put in my mouth. This has been the hardest lifestyle change to date. In are society, we are over stimulated, given super sized portions and larger plates. The one and only thing I can control is what I put in my mouth. I guess this means I am heading to the local grocery store to buy some Fudgescicles!!! (And begging my husband not to mention the wonderland that I have discovered in Graeters…it will have to be reserved for VERY, VERY SPECIAL OCCASIONS!!!)
