Frozen yogurt is healthy, right?

frozen-yogurt

Frozen yogurt is healthy, right?  So ending a long walk around the neighbourhood with a visit to the frozen yogurt place is actually adding more ‘healthy’ onto an already healthy activity, right?

Lucky me… on Thursday nights, there is this great special.  You only pay $5 no matter how much yogurt is in the cup!  So, of course, I choose the largest cup size available because I am a very bargain conscious shopper, and because yogurt is so very healthy.  More yogurt must equal more ‘healthy’, right?

I add strawberries to my yogurt because fruit is very healthy.  I also add brownie bits and salted peanuts, sweetened coconut slivers and tiny balls of cookie dough, an ever-so-reasonable squirt (or 3) of hot fudge sauce and a practically-not-even-there dollop (or 3) of whipped cream.  And a maraschino cherry (because it’s only one sugar-soaked cherry, for God’s sake).  And some chocolate sprinkles (just for decoration).

So now I have a tummy ache.  Perhaps it was the maraschino cherry.  Perhaps I am lactose-intolerant.  It couldn’t be the yogurt.  The staff at the yogurt place all wear yoga pants and there are ‘low fat’ stickers on almost every flavour.  Yogurt is so healthy…

  1. I dunno, maybe the walking gave your innards some torsion it didn’t like. Next time, try the same thing, without the walking? … 🙂
    This reminds me of my older sister’s “diet” root beer float. Take the biggest glass in the house (about the size of a child’s sand bucket). Fill it with real, French vanilla ice cream. I mean, fill it. Then complete it with enough diet root beer to make the iceberg of 1/2 gal of ice cream, float. (Sadly, she did this with no irony.)

      1. Yes, but if you want a treat, tell the person “no thanks” and see how they react. “But, it only 25 cents more, they may say.” I usually tell them “I would only eat it and do not need that much.”
