Sometimes you just have to give in to a craving.  Even all of us crazy, healthy eating, athletic types splurge on a little sugar from time to time.  Today as I was driving home from a haircut (thank you plastic surgery rotation for providing me with the afternoon to pamper myself), I started thinking about how great some frozen yogurt would taste while sitting in the beautiful 70 degree weather.  So, without any hesitation, I dropped in the nearest TCBY and ate this amazing bowl of deliciousness.

Yes, it was 3:45 in the afternoon.  Yes, it probably spoiled my dinner.  And yes, the orange and almonds on my kitchen counter would have been the healthier snack.  However, sometimes you've got to get a little crazy and break out of the rules we create for ourselves.  Today, that meant having a big bowl of frozen yogurt BEFORE dinner just because I could.  As I sat there devouring savoring each bite, it reminded me of when my brother and I were kids and would convince our parents to let us have "backwards dinner".
Gingerbread and Eggnog frozen yogurt, vanilla wafers, health bar, candy corn, and hot caramel 
When was the last time you took a walk on the wild side?

  1. YES to honoring cravings. I love froyo. Nuts + orange have a place in a diet but not when all you want is some sweet dessert :)
