Flickr photo by Mr. T in DCI have a confession. I ate ice cream for breakfast.
But in my defense, we were out of cereal. And eggs. And Mr. Ben and Mr. Jerry were taunting me (you know how persuasive those two can be).
I know, I know, shame on me. I did put strawberries on it, so that gives me healthy points. Okay, so it was strawberry syrup, but still ...
In trying to clear my guilty food conscience, I've come up with a theory. Ice cream is fattening, we all know that. But how is eating it in the morning any worse than eating it at night? In fact, it's better to eat it in the morning because you have all day to burn off those calories, which you can't do when you eat a bowl and then hit the bed for the next seven five hours.
Wow, clearly I'm on a sugar high. But it's going to be a good day because I started it off with a big bowl of Chunky Monkey.
Do you ever eat ice cream for breakfast? Would you ever let your kids? What's your favorite flavor?
