This is something I did 2 years ago:
I love ice cream. I always have and always will. However, I also like being healthy and not fat. Due to this paradox, I have had to come up with some creative ways to incorporate ice cream into my healthy way of eating. I have 3 ways that I eat ice cream throughout the week. Maybe one or all of these ways can also help you achieve your goals.
The first way I use ice cream in my diet is DAILY. That's right! I am currently doing a variation of the Anabolic Diet which is high protein, high fat, and low carb. Six days per week I am currently consuming around 3000kcal, 300g Protein, 200g Fat, 30 or less net grams of carbs (net carbs is Total Carbs minus Fiber). A large portion of my calories is my Anabolic Diet Super Shake. The ingredients are listed here:
1.5 cups of Organic Whole Milk
12 Medium Eggs
4 scoops of Whey Protein Isolate
3 Tbsp of Macadamia Nut Oil
2 Tbsp of Olive Oil
Salt and 10g Creatine Monohydrate
*I will also take 10g of Fish Oil and 2600mg of Evening Primrose Oil
As you can see, tons of protein and healthy fats. Where does the ice cream come in? I pour half (or all) of this mixture into my ice cream mixer! It comes out almost exactly like a chocolate Frosty from Wendy's!
*For those interested, the rest of my daily calories come from a low carb "taco salad" composed of the following:
10oz cooked 73/27 Ground Beef
2 cups of Spinach
4 Tbsp of sugar free Salsa
1/4 cups of peppers, mushrooms, and onions
I may split the shake/ice cream into 2-4 servings and the taco salad into 1 or 2 servings.
