I found this a couple of weeks ago at my local health food store, Sprouts, and it is AMAZING!!!  I tried the chocolate peanut butter flavor and I love it.  They also have chocolate, vanilla, strawberry banana, and chocolate mint (which I have been on the hunt for about 3 weeks and yet to find 😦 ).  So the first ingredient is water, which made me think that it would be really icy, but it is not.  I have found its more creamy if you defrost it in the microwave for about 20 seconds.  And did you notice it is 32 calories for 1/2 cup?!?!  LOVE!

I also looked up where else it is sold.  They have it at Market Street and it is also sold on Amazon.  It’s obviously a little more expensive from amazon since they have to ship it with dry ice, but well worth it!  FYI:  this is not a product review, I found and bought this on my own; I just needed to share the greatness with all of you!  The website is myarcticzero.com for more info and that is where the nutrition facts are from.

I will fill you all in on the rest of my life soon, it has been crazy busy, but I thought it was imperative to post this great ice cream substitute while I remembered.  See y’all soon!

 

A Few of My Favorite Things!!! February 23, 2010

1. NEW PB&J Larabar! These taste just like a peanut butter& jelly sandwich, but without the bread and convenient form.  I LOVE them and even found them at TJ Maxx the other day

2. Fage 2% yogurt- usually my breakfast with some cocoa and stevia, what can I say I wake up with a sweet tooth!  We recently found big containers (I think 20 ounces) at Whole Foods.  You save over $2 by buying the bigger containers  (I hope they come to Costco soon)!

3. Stevia extract- I was a big Splenda addict through my weight loss, not good :/  . But then I thought there could be something wrong with my adrenals after taking an oral steroid for my asthma and chemicals were then outlawed!  I tried no sweetener, but that did not work so Stevia it was.  I only like the Whole Foods brand, but they do count as a vitamin towards your vitamin card.

4.   Target flavored coffee-  as a dwindling Starbucks addict, cinnamon vanilla nut ground coffee is def a good replacement for my skinny cinnamon dulce latte.

5.  Cinnamon-  I swear this was my number one weight loss tool, I put it on everything.  It levels your blood sugar (a component of PCOS) and makes everything taste sweeter.

6.  Whey protein powder, I am now addicted to protein pancakes!  I currently use Jay Robb’s, but does anyone have any other faves?  I think I am ready for a new brand.

7.  ZUMBA!!! I just went to a class tonight!

8. Sriracha- I put it on stir fry, eggs, raw veggies… everything and anything.

9.  Stinging Nettles- the cure for all allergies, I have tried every allergy prescription and taking two nettles just does so much more.

10. Any Teavana tea, especially the raspberry green tea.
