Coping with the Black Hole of Calcutta

A funnel cake

Well my husband has been away for a couple of weeks and I have basically been held hostage by two of the most manipulative little so and so's on the planet. They have exploited my weak nature and taken me for every penny in treats, shopping expeditions, cinema trips, trips to have pedicures etc. Especially in respect to procuring junk food from me they have been remarkably successful. My husband usually limits takeouts to once a week but I'm afraid in his absence that we have rather been keeping the local Chinese takeaway in business.


We all have our list of devil foods as far as nutrition is concerned - a donut being the unhealthiest food in the world or maybe a funnel cake (deep fried batter sprinkled with sugar if you're interested) - and even if the kids beg and howl I don't really cave to buying chocolate, candy or ice cream.

But like many poor suckers I am seduced by posters of healthy looking people jogging amongst large berries such as in the TCBY campaigan. So the kiddos have found my soft spot to buying them crap: if they ask for frozen yogurt they know I can't really say no. And while frozen yogurt like TCBY has 98 percent fat free vanilla, which weighs in at 120 calories, 2g fat and 17g of sugar the reality is that Ben & Jerry's frozen yogurt is basically on par with 130 calories, 1.5g fat and 16g of sugar in half a cup of their vanilla frozen yogurt. Which is okay I suppose. But throw on sliced banana and a sprinkling of shredded coconut and you're looking at 530 calories. That's more than an entire pint of Ben & Jerry's vanilla frozen yogurt (520 calories)!!!
