Mint Chocolate Chip Yogurt

I found this yogurt at the store on Friday – Breyer’s Mint Chocolate Chip, and had to try it. I love mint & chip ice cream and hoped this would be as tasty. I knew it would be a reach, but I thought I’d take a shot.

It was okay. It tastes a little artificial, and it’s not ice cream, but it’s a portion controlled alternative.

Topped with granola – amazing!IMG 2285 225x300 Mint Chocolate Chip Yogurt

Dinner was good too – mac n’ cheese. I just made a box of Annie’s mac and added artichoke hearts and cottage cheese. I love having Ben around because I have to share. If it wasn’t for him I’d have eaten the whole thing! IMG 2284 300x225 Mint Chocolate Chip Yogurt

Intuitive Eating – Tonight after dinner I had the shake and a few cookies. I wasn’t hungry, but really wanted something sweet. Outside of  today, I’ve been doing really well with I.E. I am finally, albeit slowly, learning to read my hunger signals. This is a lot harder than just printing out a meal plan from some random diet and following that. Our bodies are complicated (especially when years of dieting and overeating has mess you up!).

I am so determined to be an Intuitive Eating weight loss success story!

Since watching Twilight the other day I keep talking about it. Ben thinks this means I like vampire movies and is making me watch Underworld as I type. Great. I don’t like dark or scary movies. I’m going to have to pretend to be blogging for the next hour so I don’t have to pay attention to it.

    Great blog!! I agree about the yogurt – I hate when I try different ‘healthier’ options …but it just ain’t ice cream! I’ll take the real thing :). Breyers does have great all-natural vanilla and french vanilla though too – yum!
    Good luck with the I.E – I am failing – I just eat and eat and eat beyone stuffed feelings…chocolate every night after dinner and dessert…and …always an and – I want it and just can’t stop..but stomach and mind hates me for it .

    love your honesty monica :) IE eating is something I think we all aspire to be successful at…and I think by just listening to your body, and eating what you want, be a cookie or a carrot is amazing…keep trying to just listen :) love u girl!

    Underworld and Twilight are very different. I like Underworld.
    Great job with the IE. It’s tough, but I think you’re doing a great job at listening to your body. That’s what a healthy diet should be, not some fad diet where you have to starve yourself. Have a great week :)

    I think you’re doing great with intuitive eating. Not every day will go well, but you are listening to your hunger more and that in itself is a success!

    Congratulations on going back to school for more classes. I am loving being back in the classroom…but boy, is it tough!
