The 5 Food Groups
Thanks for all the great feedback on my last post! I’m thinking about having something similar every Wednesday. Maybe a workout Wednesday series? Hmmmmm…..something to think about….
But, today I wanted to talk about the 5 food groups in our house. These are not the regulated FDA food groups, trust me.
- Cereal – we should seriously buy stock in Kashi cereal – we eat a TON of it!
- Bread – does bread not make the world go round??
- Protein smoothies – I’ve been on a chocolate/banana/pb kick lately (it used to be strawberry/banana)!
- Roasted veggies – cauliflower, broccoli, green beans, squash, you name it – we LOVE it
And last, and most important……………….ICE CREAM!!!
Yes, I have designated ice cream as our #1 food group. I’m not ashamed. We only live once, people.
We all have our favorite: C likes his on a cone, J likes his in a giant bowl with not too many toppings, and I like mine in a small bowl with peanuts and chocolate sauce on top.
Ice cream is so prominent in our lives that last summer I had to instate a rule that if the boys wanted ice cream then we had to either walk or ride our bikes there, no driving (sadly, that rule didn’t last, but I tried!). This summer the rule is going to be in FULL EFFECT. And I say this because, there’s a new sweet spot in town!!
This new throw back ice cream/candy parlor is opening close enough to our house that I foresee this being a HUGE problem this summer. Heck, it’s going to be a problem as soon as they open this Saturday!
Lucky me, my BBF (best blogger friend), Allison, knows my love of sweets and invited me as her “plus one” to a special media preview of this fantastic shop last Saturday.
The inside is darling and decorated with that old school, 1950′s, classy ice cream parlor:
There are options for everyone!
On the right are pb sandwiches (bacon, marshmallow, nutella, or jelly)! O.M.G.
But my eye was on the ice cream.
Unfortunately I had my invisalign in so I didn’t partake in any of the ice cream tasting, but don’t you worry, you will be seeing plenty of this place in the next few months. There’s even a “Terminal Tower” on the menu (10 scoops!), so maybe it’s time for a new challenge when Mandy comes home??
What’s the #1 food group in your house?? Please tell me we’re not the only ones where sweets reign supreme!!
