Summer is (slowly) approaching and if you’re anything like me, it involves a lot more soda, juice, cocktails and ice cream than it should!
Below are a few facts and tips to help keep you cool without adding too many calories You’re welcome
It isn’t really summer without ice cream hey? No. But I don’t think I need to tell you that we probably need to go a bit slower on ice cream.
Good news – there are healthier alternative which are equally as yummy!
1. Frozen yoghurt
Personally, I’m a huge fan.
I do however feel that sometimes it’s marketed as like this miracle zero fat zero calorie really tasty stuff, which is only partly true. A small part. The tasty part.
Based on Wakaberry’s nutritional info:
Compared to a soft serve from Steers:
100g ice cream
So you see how frozen yoghurt is a little better
PS: Beware of the toppings! They don’t even pretend to be fat free!
Another favourite – Fruttare. Love these things! If you don’t know what they are all I can say is that you’re missing out!
They are less than 270kJ a pop, made with fruit and simply yum
Opt for fruit ice lollies instead of the ice cream chocolatey ones like Magnum/King Cone etc.
I have mentioned this in a previous post (go read it!) but don’t be fooled by fruit juice. It usually contains more sugar than your fizzy drinks so it isn’t necessarily the better option.
It’s always a good habit to dilute your fruit juice with water. Everyone who knows me knows that I always do this.
You can also try making some drinks at home like flavoring water with fruit slices or homemade ice tea. Those are good alternatives to sodas and juices.
Use Sprite Zero in place of lemonade when making punch. This helps to cut down the sugar!
Drink lots of water
I’m sure you already know this, but maybe you just needed a reminder
Like I always say, there’s more to life than counting calories, but let’s not be too silly this season
Health and happiness always
