Nutrition Rule #1: Never Eat Ice Cream Out of the Carton!!!!


I thought today's lunch was going to be mega-healthy! I had a home-made 5-layer burrito on a whole wheat tortilla that included:

  • 1/2 cup brown rice
  • 1/2 cup pinto beans
  • 1/4 cup tomatoes
  • 1/4 avocado
  • 1 oz cheese

I paired that with a red plum and I felt pretty satisfied.

Enter a little thought in my mind, "hmmm, a spoonful of that cookies 'n cream ice cream would sure be good right now. After all, it's Friday!"

So I did it, I gave in into temptation. The worst part is that I know not to eat out of the carton, I knew what I was doing was not right. Half a cup later (that's my story and I'm sticking to it), I placed the carton back as both my doggies were giving me the look of "shame, shame, shame!"

The thing is, I enjoyed the ice cream, but I probably would have enjoyed it so much better if it was on a cone, or in a nice bowl.

So ladies & gentlemen, the first nutrition rule that I will try to follow from now on will be:

1. Never eat ice cream out of the carton!!!
