As you know, we rarely eat processed foods. We cook almost all of our meals from scratch. We buy organic and local as often as possible.
We do these things because it makes us feel better - stronger, more energetic, less ill, smarter, happier - all of that and more. I'm not pulling your leg. Food is medicine...for your body, heart, and mind.
I should point out, though, that we still go to ice cream shops from time-to-time. Our girls inevitably pick the most unnatural and neon-colored ice cream of all - bubble gum or birthday cake or something like that. And we let them enjoy it.
We also like self-serve frozen yogurt shops. Have you tried mango or raspberry? So delicious. We usually forgo toppings because it's so good exactly as-is.
Also - gelato is very good. I hear it's healthier than regular ice cream, but I'm not exactly sure why.
I'd like to see bigger ice cream brands (Breyers, Dreyer's, Blue Bunny, Blue Bell, Ben & Jerry's, etc.) focus on creating higher quality products with fewer ingredients. The Five line by Haagen Dazs is like this. It's pricey, but good.
My favorite flavors of ice cream are vanilla, mint, coffee, and peach. For gelato, I like cheesecake. But frozen yogurt is my favorite.
Do you prefer ice cream, gelato, or frozen yogurt? What are your favorite flavors?
