We’ve officially (almost) made it to the weekend!
This was my first week working at Perfect Bar and to say I’m exhausted would be an understatement. This isn’t just another new job for me this is an actual career! Working for Perfect Bar is a dream come true and I’ve put 110% of my heart and soul into this first week.
Normally I’d say bring on a glass or ummm BOTTLE of wine to celebrate and relax but I’m holding strong to my no booze until after my marathon promise.
SO…option #2: A guilt free protein ice cream sandwich instead???
I actually can’t take any credit for thinking up this incredible protein ice cream sandwich.
My good friend Harvey who first introduced me to Halo Top ice cream came up with this combination.
Let me tell you guys a quick story on how this all came to be. I posted a picture of me eating Halo Top on Snapchat and then Harvey messaged me saying “put that between 2 Complete Cookies for the best treat ever”. The end.
Not the most exciting story ever but when you’re a psycho foodie like me hearing of new food combinations can make my whole day!
But seriously if you had an exhausting week like me NOW is the time to treat yourself!
It really doesn’t get much better!
If you’ve never heard of The Complete Cookie by Lenny & Larry I’m so glad you’re still reading this post!
Each cookie has 16 g of protein and 8 g of fiber. In addition to that these cookies contain:
- No genetically modified organisms
- No soy
- No high fructose corn syrup
- No cholesterol
- No trans fat
- No artificial sweeteners
- No sugar alcohols
- No dairy
- No eggs
And most important to add to that list is that they actually taste GREAT! For this protein ice cream sandwich I used the Double Chocolate and Double Chocolate Peanut Butter.
For a full list of flavors and where to purchase visit their website.
So I may have kind of lied about the whole guilt free aspect of this protein ice cream sandwich.
While both Halo Top and The Complete Cookie are far better options than their fatty counterparts nothing is 100% guilt free.
Each Complete Cookie is about 400 calories so when you’re using 2 that’s a lot of calories adding up there really quickly.
They’re also just REALLY filling so to make this actually GUILT FREE cut it in half and split it with your boyfriend, your best friend, your girlfriend, your dog, your sister, your brother, your dad…whoever.
Or be a fatty like me and just eat the whole thing.
Anyway I’m brain dead and rambling. HAPPY FRIDAY everyone!
Have you tried Halo Top or a Complete Cookie?
If so, what’s your favorite flavor?
Any fun weekend plans?
