As someone with Hypothyroidism, losing weight is hard, but gaining weight is a piece of cake. That means my diet and fitness routine has to be over the top most days of the week. When I turned 25, my thyroid spiraled out of control. I gained nearly 50 pounds in just a few short months. I was so upset with the way that I looked that I turned to crash diets and fads before finally figuring out what went wrong. Now that I’m on a healthier path to keep my weight in check, I’m looking for every opportunity to enjoy the things that I eat.
As a suggestion from my doctor, I cut out most dairy products from my diet. With so many dairy-free alternatives on the market today, I never miss it. Except when I’m looking for dessert. I’ve tried those soy milk shakes and smoothies, but nothing really pleases my appetite for chocolaty goodness. I don’t mind limiting my grain or gluten intake, but when it comes to ice cream, I’m a sucker. I used to just give into every craving. I would do so well all week long only to ruin it with frozen yogurt or a big scoop of rocky road. I love comfort food, and ice cream keeps me pretty comfortable.
Perfectly Free is a Life (and Diet) Saver
Knowing my love of sweets, my husband suggested I start looking for some healthier and dairy-free alternative to my ice cream addiction. I tried fruit bars, frozen berries, and pretty much everything in that section of the frozen foods. Nothing satisfied me the same way a big, creamy, delicious scoop of vanilla caramel did. That is, until we stumbled across Perfectly Free. I was skeptical, of course. Fool me once, shame on you, but fool me twice… you get the idea. Reluctantly, I purchased them. I opted to get the salted caramel and vanilla and the cocoa and vanilla.
As soon as we got home from the grocery store, I popped one in my mouth and was absolutely taken aback. It was creamy. Check. Chocolaty. Check. Delicious. Check. After months of searching for a healthy alternative, I had finally found my dairy-free ice cream treat. With a creamy vanilla center and coated outside, I was getting a hot fudge sundae without all the calories. Perfectly Free isn’t just dairy free. After doing some more snooping, I realized they were free of most major allergens. Each flavor is completely dairy, gluten, wheat, soy, egg, peanut, almond, cashew, fish, and shellfish free. Not to mention, each serving only has 35 calories or less and not enough fat to turn your nose up at!
Choose From Four Great Perfectly Free Flavors
With four amazing flavors (I can vouch for the cocoa and salted caramel), you’ll never get bored. Switch it up between the sweet caramel and chocolate or the more tart cherry and blueberry flavors. Regardless of which flavor you choose, they’re all only 35 calories or less. When you’re craving dessert, these are the perfect things to reach for. Not only will they not take up all your daily calories, but everyone in the family will love them. If you have a food allergy, these are the best way to enjoy a great dessert without forgetting about your food restrictions. When you’re ready to live Perfectly Free, visit Star Market, Big Y, Donelan’s, Crosby’s Marketplace, or Market Basket to purchase your delicious and diet approved dessert!
