I spent a great majority of my time writing Friday (from what I can remember).
I've made some discoveries concerning what you can eat on a low carb diet that actually tastes good.
Writing the Ben and Jerry's review would have been torturous had it not been for the fact that I've discovered a dessert to curb my cravings that is NOT too shabby at all.
1/2 cup ricotta cheese--full fat
1-2 tbl of vanilla flavoring
1 packet Splenda
1 square graham cracker
What you have when you mix this all together is a cheesecake taste-alike that is low in both carbs and fat. It tastes good and you can sub the vanilla for any similar flavoring like lemon, almond, or coconut etc.

There is also something to be said for the Atkins Diet (which is low carb but not low fat) in that you can still eat Mexican food. I am doing a semi-South Beach/semi-Atkins in that I am really trying to do low carb while concentrating the MOST on getting exercise.
Friday night I had an order of shrimp from La Carreta with cheese dip and a Miller Lite brat from the fridge.
Later on, I watched Sister Act (I love that movie) with Erik and lifted weights. I am really proud that even if I am not doing a 5K run every day, doing SOMETHING is better than NOTHING.
Right now--I think because of doing push-ups--my wrists hurt so I have gone light on the weights, but I have still managed to do them!
I would really like others to try this recipe for "Low Carb Mock Cheesecake." To show my support of the low carb diet I would like to give a set of three McCormick's flavorings to one lucky reader.
