So DELICIOUS is right!

It’s summer time & I LOVE ICE CREAM! I grew up in Myrtle Beach where ice cream was a part of your daily meal plan.  When we moved to Cornelius NC the summer I turned 12, I remember the ice cream shop I would ride my bike to. I would always order the same thing. A two scoop cone with cookies & cream on the bottom & mint chocolate chip on the top.

As an adult I have learned some things & pay a little more attention to what I put in my body but I don’t want to sacrifice TASTE! If it tastes bad I WILL NOT EAT IT! Now I have a healthy alternative.

Erythritol is the sweetener used instead of sugar in coconut milk ice cream. It isn’t nearly as weird or bad as it sounds, and can be derived from non-GMO, ethically sourced plants. So Delicious made a “no sugar added” line right, and went with a safe, low-glycemic sweetener. SWEET!!!

There is no funny after taste….. this stuff is just good! YOUR WELCOME! ;p


Homemade Salad Dressing

Don’t ruin your healthy salad with bad dressing. Make your own so you know what’s in there.

Work Out Bands!

Currently I am doing several different at home workout programs from Beachbody. This little tip came from my P90X3 workouts. I love these things! Thank you Tony Horton!!!!

You slip the band adapter over the hinge, between the door jam & close the door! Bam!!! Depending on where you place the adapter & the range of motion you use, depends on the workout you get.

In the picture I am working my chest…. ladies this is a great way to build up cleavage and from the privacy of your own home.

I got this adapter for $5 at Play It Again Sports. The bands came with my T25 workout program.


Hope you enjoy this tip. Feel free to leave a comment below. Thank you for visiting a day in my world!
