I’ve kept 20 pounds off for several months – and that’s a RECORD for me! In the past I was the quintessential yo-yo dieter, making bargains with myself that I will get back on the horse, but when I start to climb the ladder to mount the horse, I slip and land on the proverbial ground instead. Keto is different – it’s less of a traditional diet and more of a lifestyle change that uses common horse sense instead of rules, regulations and restrictions. It’s a smart way of eating. Yes, there’s portion control – there has to be – but I have not felt deprived like I have before. I’m never hungry. If I feel hungry, I can have all the fresh vegetables I want. I get keto friendly veggie dip – and have a virtual feast at snack time!
But… what about ice cream – for breakfast??? Hmm… Lucinda thinks it’s perfect! 😉
Thanks first to my Heavenly Father, of course, for without HIM – well – I’d not get anything done! I’m thankful to my friend Dana for adding me to a great group on facebook called Keto 2nd Breakfast – and all the other meals! I’ve gotten such help and support there – and then I turn around and share what I learn in my group (which is more or less health-related – well, we try)… A Second Helping of Wellness… with a Dash of Humor & a Pinch of Faith.
Then, I’d like to thank the academy, and all the little people, for without the little people, I would not have had the stick-to-it-tive-ness to achieve success! Okay, now I’m being silly. Too much coffee maybe? Oh… surely not! There’s no such thing!!!
Of all the foods that are on the high carb side – I miss ice cream the most. I pass the Braum’s store and nearly have a fit – I want ice cream – well, a twist frozen yogurt, to be exact… so bad!!! But I think there’s a wonderful solution – and I found a post from Amanda Balster in the group – about Halo Top. I’ve decided that’s a great name for it, because it feels as though Halo Top is Heaven sent!
A 1/2 cup serving is 80 calories, 2.5g fat, 7g net carbs, and 6g of protein. I call that a WIN!
Thanks Amanda for these photos! 🙂
Everyone says that all the flavors are good – except lemon. I don’t know because I’ve not tried it yet. I’m blogging without trying the product first hand, which I rarely do, but I trust my friends to steer me in the right direction – they always have. Shoot, I’m just happy to hear about a legal ice cream alternative! 😀
