Pour Some Sugar on Me…

Swimsuit season is around the corner and every magazine I open has some new diet “secret” or workout plan to get into swimsuit shape. But what if you’re addicted to sugar?

HOT+bodies+2011+US+magazine
Nooo….It’s that time of year again when these covers start showing up everywhere!

Every night after dinner, I HAVE to eat dessert. I’ll eat a handful of sugar cubes if it’s the only sweet in sight. Luckily, I have a few dessert options I love and they’re low-cal because I think it’s so annoying and unrealistic when these magazines advise people to cut out ALL sugary sweets from their diet.

Here are my favorite desserts at home. You can find them in your grocer’s freezer. icon wink
(ALL of them are UNDER 150 calories each)

Mini+drumsticks
Just 110 cals each, much less than the normal Drumstick. Lucerne (Safeway brand) is just as good!

Creamsicle+Rasberry+and+Orange
The Classic Creamsicle comes in Rasberry too (100 calories each)

                                                                         

Mochi
Trader Joe’s Mochi  ( I love Mango or Strawberry) Yummm! (115 calories each)
skinny cow ice cream
The tried and true Skinny Cow. These are SO good and the ice-cream doesn’t taste low cal (140 cals)

Occasionally, I run into people that say “I’m not really a sweet person actually,” or “I don’t have much of a sweet tooth.” If you’re not one of them, what’s your favorite dessert and do you have any halfway healthy options you want to share? icon smile

Hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend!

    Sweets is def something I can go without if I have to (although I don’t prefer to.) My carb-heavy vice is wine. But – I loooooooove skinny cows! They are probably one of my all time favorite desserts, and I love how low-call they are.

  2. Tanvi says:

    Incidentally I have decided to give up all things sugar (except fruits) for about 6 months starting 1st June!!!

    Wish me luck!!! I NEED IT!!!!!!!!

    omg i need dessert with EVERY MEAL, it’s an addiction!!!

    i just got these and they’re friggin good. don’t know if they’re that low cal/fat but they ARE weight watchers…

    http://www.walmart.com/ip/Weight-Watchers-English-Toffee-Crunch-12-Ct-Ice-Cream-Bar-21-oz/10898935

    i think if all i had to do for my job was sit on the beach and look good all day, go shopping, and then shoot a reality show, i’d cut the sugar. =P

    I think we share the same fridge!!! xoxo

  7. Leeann @ Join the Gossip says:

    I’m not a huge sweets fan, I’m more of a meal fan lol. Like I don’t snack on chips, I’d rather go for something bigger. Not a good thing! BUT I am loving the Weight Watchers icea cream bars. Vanilla with chocolate covering. So good :)

  8. Jenna Lee says:

    I LOVE DESSERT! “Now i have to start running because my love of chocolate for breakfast has caught up with me.

    Thank you for your sweet blog visit! Now following!

    What’s a mochi??? That looks so unique!
    Those mini drumsticks look super cute too haha.

  12. Dale says:

    @Becky: Mochi is a japanese candy made from rice and I’m not exactly sure how they do it, but the Trader Joes ones have ice-cream in the middle :)
    @Holly -The English Toffee ones sound good, thanks for letting me know

  13. travelkate says:

    I have such a sweet tooth-as I’m writing this I am eating chocolate chips, haha. Love these options-I’m a big fan of mochi and used to buy them from Trader Joe’s all the time, but they don’t have a Trader Joe’s in Dallas yet :(

  14. Jessie says:

    I love mochi, haven’t tried those from Trader Joe’s, must give it a try sometime. Thanks for following. Lovely blog, by the way, your newest follower!

    I’m not fond of chocolates but I love salad and tiramisu. yummy!

  16. I love sugar too. And salt. :-) I do a workout routine called p90x and insanity. Whipped me into shape and I can still eat whatever I want. You should look into it if you want to eat your sugar and get bikini ready! xo

  17. Jay says:

    ahaha, i often have an urge for the sweets, but luckily we often have lots of fruits at home (watermelons, bananas, etc.).

    and btw, those bodies… mmmm….

  18. ChaosButterfly says:

    Ahhh I am addicted to sugar too!!
    I tried to go a month with no sugary sweets and two days in, I was grouchy as a momoflucka. Like godzilla after it got shot or something. -___-

    But I love to eat the skinny cow ice creams and the Edy’s Frozen Fruit Bars. Especially the fruit bars, because they have real chunks of fruit in them.
    Fresh fruit with greek yogurt is also really good for a sweet dessert. Or del monte tropical fruit salad in the can. And Ben and Jerry’s Fro-yo Half Baked. And if I’m not in the mood for sweet stuff, I’ll just have some trail mix with cheese popcorn. Oooh me gusta.

  19. ed says:

    best way to diet is not stock these sweets in your fridge

  20. mary louise says:

    i love mochi! great post – very realistic.

  21. Bobbi says:

    Hi, my name is Bobbi and I am a sugaraholic!
    I’m the exact same way. I have to have something sweet, even if it’s just chocolate milk.

  22. the Honey B says:

    this post is absolutely delicious! I would kill someone for those mini drumsticks right now! LOL

  23. Shop N' Chomp says:

    I’m the same way! I have to have sugar even if it’s just a bit. I really love those Skinny Cow sandwiches!

    I always think I’m not a sweet tooth… But in fact, I think I just love all food! I wish we had Skinny Cow in NZ.. sigh. I’m a sucker for cake… any cake (unfortunately there aren’t many low-cal versions!).

    Just discovered your blog, would love it if you popped by mine sometime.

    It looks so yummi!

  28. Jonna says:

    I think no one should stop eating sweets or reducind their sweet eating just because they want to have such a perfect body they can see on magazine covers etc.. If you try to control it, you just want it more ;D I think we should eat as much as we want, but do some sports more!
    (or if you’re too lazy like me, just eat and don’t do spors, but don’t care too much! XD hahh)

  29. Raquel Fernandes says:

    My secret for losing weight and keep the good shape is never but never eat after dinner. I eat a soop and a grilled steak, sometimes a piece of bread about 8pm. I go to sleep about 1 am so i’m always so hungry but I struggle not to eat and I can see results ;)

  42. Jennifer Fabulous says:

    OMG you may have just saved my life! I also am addicted to dessert and trying to diet the past few months has been HORRIBLE. These will help immensely. :)

  43. Sam says:

    Fruits definitely help with my sweet tooth! Also, I basically have the whole mantra of how moderation is key. It’s a fact (can’t find the article where I read it) wherein if you prohibit your body something, you’ll crave for it more, and if you don’t get it, you’re body will try to find alternatives for it which may cause you to eat more.

    This is such a great list! i want skinny cow!!!

  44. Jessica French says:

    Thank you for you’re lovely comments on my blog :) I love this post and can relate to you on this one… We have these mini lollys in the UK called Twister and they are only 40 calories! amazing! Not sure if you have them in the US but you should definitely look out for them :) Following you too, Hope you’re well coco

  45. Melissa: Write it in Lipstick says:

    i use to be the same way now I just drink lots of water to fight the craving

  46. heatherheartsfashion says:

    i am inexplicably jealous of people who do not have hardcore sweet cravings!! it is my only weakness when it basically comes to food (not a big meat eater and i love healthy food) but it is a baaadd weakness. i am a chocoholic till death.

  47. Shasie says:

    Girl sweets are my downfall! I can give up chips, and junk and fast food, but I crave sweet and sugar

    Everything looks amazing. I may have drooled all over my computer a little bit >.< lol Anyways, thanks for sharing! These sweets are definitely something I can go without, but I choose not to. Sweets are obviously addicting, but it is something you can treat yourself and still lose weight instead of depriving yourself of them.

  54. haha, I’m not addicted to sugar, but I do love fast food! which is equally bad!

    I dont really have much of a sweet tooth but I have to admit, all of these desserts are making me crave one :) We don’t have Trader Joes in Canada, but based on these mochi alone I wish we did!
    Mostly though I prefer to eat more of my meal than to save room for dessert..

A healthy kinda sweet I would say fruit? Like strawberry, pineapple,… It can be pretty sweet but healthy
