Because, well…healthy, shmealthy!!!
Sometimes, and particularly in the midst of a heatwave, even the nutrition narrative isn’t so important as keeping cool, by whatever means possible!
Ice cream might not have any nutrition credentials to speak of, but in 30 plus degree temperatures, there’s no arguing with what it DOES bring to the table.
Specifically… a thermoregulating sugar rush, generously sprinkled with happiness, mindfulness, normality and nostalgia!
Yes, the joy of ice cream officially runs deep…and maybe even more so now, in this world where gratification is at a premium!
It goes without saying, of course, that the importance of moderation in all things still stands. There is, sadly, such a thing as too much of a good thing, and ice cream is no exception.
What recognising and practicing the principles of variety and balance affords, however, is the freedom to - on occasion at least - take ‘clean eating’ with a pinch of salt… and caramel!
