I honestly try to eat well. Maybe not hard enough, but I start most days with what I think is on the right track. Every morning after a good brisk walk or a light workout I crack, whip and cook up 3 eggs and chase it down with a delicious fruit smoothie with nothing but frozen and fresh fruit combined with pure fruit juice. The recipe changes daily. And from there I do my best to make smart food choices for lunch and dinner (most days). My weakness - quantity!
However I do like to indulge periodically and one of my favourite treats is ice cream.
Now if I am going to have an ice cream - it might as well be fantastic. Here are some of my favourite hideouts.
