Fun Food

"I want to have a good body, but not as much as I want dessert."- Jason Love

Chocolate and ice cream are two of my favorite comfort food and my appetite for them is insatiable. I can finish one pint of Haagen-Dazs creme brulee in one sitting just as fast as I can with a large bar of dark or bitter chocolate.

I've been lax with my Atkins diet lately and been taking in more carbs than I'm supposed to. As expected, I gained weight. In fact, I am 10 pounds heavier than I was a couple of months ago. Sometimes the runner stumbles. Arrrggh!

I usually buy Breyers Carb Smart ice cream (it comes in almond chocolate and plain chocolate flavors) because at 5 net grams per bar, it's carb friendly.

However, the carb-laden frozen delights is, sometimes, too tempting to resist. After being introduced to Cold Stone ice cream by my friend, Noemi, I was hooked. The Cold Stone creations do not only look irresistible, they also taste good. "The smell alone is pure nirvana."

Anybody want a 'mint mint chocolate chocolate chip' ?

"I had always thought that once you grew up you could do anything you wanted - stay up all night or eat ice cream out of the container." - Bill Bryson
