Jello

Today's post is brought to you by an old forgotten favourite sweet snack.


Mmmmm ... jello!  Or more specifically ....


Jello and light whip cream!

Last night I was still being beaten down by the sleep deprivation and chose to skip my run for the night and go to bed early.  But FIRST ... I decided to plan ahead and make a little sweet snack that I could have in moderation.  Four 1/2 cup containers, plus extra for the fam.  This is the full strength stuff - no aspartame crap for me!

I'm thinking maybe I need to stop worrying about the fact that I eat something sweet EVERY day.  Trying to avoid it just leads to me seeking it out, and usually eating more than I should.  Instead I just need to plan for it and just have it each day and enjoy it.  No guilt!

What's your favourite healthy sweet snack?

I love sticking a 60 calorie cup of chocolate pudding in the freezer, then when it's frozen, let it sit on the counter for 10 minutes. It is my favorite snack of all time, it's like eating icecream without the guilt!

I think it's perfectly healthy to allow for something sweet every day. When I deprive myself, I end up making up for it (and over-compensating) on other things. I love a hot chocolate at night in the winter!

Thanks for posting about the giveaway! :)

I have something sweet everyday and it is usually not that healthy, but I only have a bit. Like a piece of chocolate. I think the last time I had jello, it was in the form of a shot :D oops

I love the VitaBrownie's and Vitatop's. I will also have the individual servings of Skinny Cow ice cream- fudge brownie is my favorite!

Vitatops and Clemantines. Cuties are crazy good at stopping my sweet tooth somehow!

I love SF jello with light whipped cream. Oh, and frozen yogurt - yum! I made my own last year and it was fabulous! :)

Fran said...

Would you believe it if I said I never had jello in my life?

I never eat aspartame sweets, they just don't taste that good. I prefer the real stuff but eat less of it.

Favorite snack but not healthy: very dark chocolate with little crips of caramel in it.

JELLLO!! Love this! I started eating a juicy orange when I get sweet cravings and it has helped a lot. I know it's not as good as chocolate but it has helped me.

Jello does make for a tasty, low-cal, sweet treat! Good idea!
