Breyers Ice cream that I can eat and not feel guilty about!

I scream you scream we all scream for ice cream!  That was the popular chant when I was a kid growing up!  Now that summer is in full swing, ice cream is something my kids have to have in the freezer at all times!  As I sit and watch my kids devour their ice cream which I have decided I do not need because I am trying to lose weight.  All I can think of is I want some!  But I do not want to have to add an extra workout to my 5 workouts a week to burn off the extra calories I take in from a small bowl of my favorite full fat ice cream.  Well I can now rest assured because Breyers aka my new best friend has come out with a great ice cream novelty that will aid in my calorie counting so i can be happy with ice cream again!  wohooooooo!

So here is the skinny:   Breyers Smooth and Dreamy ice cream bars and sandwiches

from the Breyers website http://www.smoothanddreamy.com 

Bars and Sandwiches that are so delicious and indulgent, you'll be amazed that
they have less fat and calories than regular ice cream bars and sandwiches. That's
right, flash that big happy smile because we’re bringing back the joy!

I searched every package in the store and found that they use real sugar not some splenda that tastes awful or some other fake sweetener!  That is why I have not been eating the ice cream or if I did splurge it was a 90 calorie bite size version of another ice cream novelty!  Now that I have tasted these ice cream sandwiches and I got the Chocolate Carmel Brownie Sandwiches and they were so good!  They tasted like they were full fat ice cream bars and they weren't!  I love them so much and i want you to love them too!  That is why I am giving away 5 coupons for the smooth and dreamy ice cream bars and sandwiches to 5 lucky readers of my blog!  So leave a comment on the bottom of the post for one entry and tell me what flavor you are looking forward to trying out or one entry.  For additional entries follow me on twitter, or subscribe to my newsfeed.  if you do the addtional entries make sure you leave another comment for each thing you do.

The contest is over August 20th and I will use random.org to draw the winners :)

Wow I love this new Eggo product that is out

Eggo is one of the many things you will find in my freezer on any given day of the week.  Waffles are a common staple in the house and daddy has sometimes come to make them for dinner while mommy is at the gym :). 

Anyway, there is a new addition to the Eggo line of products:  Eggo Real Fruit Pizza!  Wow!  I know what you all are thinking, Whats on this pizza for breakfast?  Well they have fruit, granola and are on top of a cinnamon maple crust!  just think Cereal bar meets granola!  I was sent a sample of the two flavors that you will find out on the market and i can say they were good!  I loved the strawberry granola with only 400 calories which i am counting mine to lose the baby fat! The mixed berry was good too and has 390 calories!  My daughter loved this mixed berry one and my twins loved it too!  you totally need to check this out by going to the Eggo website and checking out what is new and signing up for updates on new products :).  i hope you guys enjoy them as much as we did because they are just so yummy!  Plus they have fruit in them and they are big pieces of fruit not some freeze dried fruit you find in your breakfast cereals.

Shamu and you walk thermometer

So i bet you were wondering about my Shamu and you walk thermometer on the right side of my page

Well here is the thing: 

last year a friend of ours baby had suffered major head trauma while in daycare and was in the hospital for months.  That hospital saved our friends baby seriously.  i do not want to comment too much about it because i want to respect our friends privacy.  However, we are doing the walk because it is a casue we believe in and we want to help out Rady's Childrens hospital San Diego anyway we can and we were asked to participate by our friend and we are on their team which makes it even sweeter.  So please donate or do a virtual walk to even post a link to my blog on your blog so others can help the cause.  for more info on the Shamu and you walk just click on my thermometer and you can read more
