My First Beast

Wednesday night. I had my first beast.

Or at least, that’s what The Fitnessista has dubbed ginormous salads. I discovered The Fitnessista as I began searching blog world for healthy eating tips and advice. I am really enjoying her entertaining blog and I really want to try one of her RAD workouts. I haven’t read back far enough to know for 100% that a beast is a ginormous salad, but I think that’s the gist of it.

I had also had my first Super Doubles experience. And, I had a coupon for this stuff.

I had seen Purely Decadent raved about on some blogs I’ve been reading and wanted to try it so I said “super doubles, I’ve got a coupon, why, not!?” I do love ice cream so something on the better for you side of ice cream’s not a bad idea.

I scooped out two spoonfuls and gave it a whirl.

Verdict: Okay. It was a strong coconut taste sorta like a Pina Colada flavored ice cream. Which on the flipside, might not be too bad because I don’t think I can eat more than a scoop or two in one sitting.

Do you have any low cal ice cream substitute recommendations?

I love that you're doing this! V. interesting. I don't know that it is low calorie, but the Breyer's Sugar Free Vanilla isn't bad. I like it with warm berries on top. I just get the frozen bag of mixed berries and microwave them.

I love Purely Decadent coconut milk ice cream! But it took me awhile to fall in love with the vanilla flavor. Try the turtle trails, chocolate or mint chip flavors. You'll be in heaven!
