Aisles to avoid at the grocery store – Ice Cream

These next several blogs are probably not going to score me a lot of brownie points with readers, but these aisles should be avoided at all cost when going to the grocery store.

The first aisle up on the list is the ice cream aisle. IMG_20140301_143351_952 This aisle is loaded with unnecessary calories,fats and sugars that your body doesn’t need.  If you must visit this aisle stick to frozen juice pops or frozen yogurt, which are both better for you than ice cream.

The best thing you can do is just avoid the aisle all together, which is what I do.  As I like to say, out of sight, out of mind.  Wanting something and needing something are two totally different things.  You don’t need ice cream…you want ice cream.  Not the same thing.  Remember that.

Here are a couple of suggestions for homemade frozen treats that are a much better alternative than hitting up the ice cream aisle.  These have far less calories and sugar plus they would be something fun to make with your family.

Strawberry Lemonade Ice Pops

Watermelon-Kiwi Pops
