Girl Scout cookies

I LOVE a good GSC...especially Thin Mints! I actually freeze them. They freeze really well and they stay for a long time. Keeps me from eating to many of them.

Anyways, while they are my favorites, I won't discriminate against the Tag-a longs. I mean, who doesn't love chocolate and peanut butter? I was in the kitchen at my office washing my lunch bowl when I noticed the box of tag a longs on the table. So I thought,"One won't hurt right? Maybe two...". So, since I was obviously craving I decided to look at the side of the box. A serving size is 2 cookies and one serving has 140 calories. Now, that isn't an awful thing, but I really don't need it. So I decided to check a cup of my sugar free vanilla/chocolate pudding. 60 calories. I can have 2 1/4 cups of pudding for the same calories as 2 small cookies!

I went with 1 cup of pudding and called it a day!

I'm all for getting more volume in my foods. That is why I Like the Hungry Girl recipes. She always is looking for ways to increase volume and reduce calories.

I like that you (Jenn) are looking at serving sizes, too. You got to be a reader to keep the weight off.

Also, finding ways to feed our cravings. Instead of the cookies have the pudding. You won that one!

Lets do IT!!!

Great job, Jenn! Did you know that Dreyers makes a GSC Samoa ice cream? OMG...I had to try it! But, I did good and only put a little bit in a coffee cup instead of a bowl. Took my time eating it and enjoying every last drop. I got my little fix and then my kids devoured the rest in minutes so the temptation was removed! Because sometimes...if it's in within reach I give in.

Well, I'm glad that is my least favorite one! Thin Mints are my ultimate weakness. I make a really good milkshake out of them!
