*Okay so this Loving Lately post is a bit different as shingles knocked me out for three weeks this month. Seriously, I was a big old sickly, hot mess so I pretty much spent all my time sleeping or laying on the couch/in bed relaxing. Therefore, this Loving Lately is brought to you by three weeks of shingles and time in bed.*
The Great British Bake Off –
I read an article on the best NetFlix shows you should be watching and this topped the list. The contestants are all real people with real jobs who come in and bake every weekend for no big prize – just the joy and recognition of it all. Plus, they are not all catty like American reality show people, most of them seem genuinely nice and normal. And the food they make… oh dear heavens it is amazing and you just end up getting sucked into episode after episode. I may have watched all three seasons that are currently available on NetFlix during my three week shingles incident.
Trevor Noah: Afraid of the Dark –
I do not normally watch comedy, but Netflix kept suggesting this over and over. I like bits and pieces of what I have seen of Trevor since he took over the Daily Show for John Stewart, so I went for it. It was actually really good with some funny jokes. I have since tried to watch a few other NetFlix comedy specials and I did not like any of them as much as I liked this one. So, if you enjoy comedy go for it.
Woohoo – my local Harris Teeter, the grocery store I actually go to, started carrying Halo Top. They don’t carry all the flavors, there are 15 or more, but they do have a few in stock. If you know me you know that Ben & Jerry’s is my number one food of choice and that I believe a pint is a convenient little bowl, perfect serving size (Ben & Jerry do not seem to agree with this and think there are 4 servings in one pint – crazy!)
As I am trying to calm it down with the Ben & Jerry’s I was so happy to see Halo Top come into stock. My favorite flavor is the Mint Chip which has just 240 calories in the whole pint, instead of the 1,200ish in my favorite Ben & Jerry’s. Plus, it has 20ish grams of protein in a pint so it helps fill you up too. I will admit it is not quite the same as Ben & Jerry’s, but it is BY FAR the best low calorie ice cream I have tried. My goal now is to only buy this when I am craving ice cream and not other brands that pack on 3/4 times the calories.
Let me know –
