Food Marathon Counter-Programming

Food marathoning can take its physical toll. I’ve been blessed with a fast metabolism but certain 3,000 calorie binge days slow the heart down a bit. That’s why I counter my monthly weekend marathons with light/healthy weekday meals. Besides the occasional tom yum soup from Jitlada I tend to eat turkey sandwiches from Subway (no cheese, no mayo). Another standby is Mickey and Sam’s Ice Cream Plus. It’s a no frills ice cream shop that serves salads, soup and sandwiches exactly how you would make them at home. Regular old iceberg lettuce, store-bought wheat bread, brown rice, microwaveable tofu, jarred sauces… it’s really nothing special at all. It’s healthy, inexpensive, easy and then there’s the dessert. There’s yogurt, gelato, sorbet, fat free, low fat, sugar free, low sugar and different combinations. Flavors range from cinnamon to lemon, raspberry ice tea to peanut butter. This one is banana and chocolate hazelnut.For around $10 it’s my go to weekday spot for lunch and/or dinner.
