Two Sides of Sweets

A photo I posted yesterday to the TravelnWrite Facebook page was so overwhelmingly popular that it took me by surprise.  I thought I’d include it here for those of you who don’t follow us on FB:

This was served to us at  Maui’s Kaanapali Beach Hula Grill Restaurant after the waitress told us that our Marriott guest card qualified us for “a free ice cream sandwich.” We expected to have a couple bites of some small cooler.

It was served after we’d each consumed a fish burger and the macadamia nut salad that came with it.
Let me assure you that when you travel as much as we do, we can't eat like this all the time. Those of you following the blog know that we’ve followed a diet that pretty much eliminates both sugar and carbs (links to our Diet to Go posts can be found on our homepage).

This meal was an exception. (And in all truthfulness, even though we shared the dessert and didn’t finish it, that much sugar was enough to upset our tummies for a few hours afterwards).

So to show you the other – more normal view - of our sweet treats, I am adding this photo. This is how we start our days around here: locally grown pineapple and bananas topped with a locally produced mango yogurt – now that’s a ‘sweet treat’ we could eat every day. . .in fact we do!

  1. It all looks good - and I adore mango yogurt - really anything with mango. But the fish and salad are making me hungry too (while I sit at the airport contemplating a sandwich for dinner.) Sounds like you're enjoying winter so far.

  2. That is a very fancy ice cream sandwich. Unfortunately, my tummy is well conditioned to processing sugar, so I'm sure it wouldn't bother me one bit. The local mango yogurt sounds delicious, too.

  3. That does look good, Jackie! But I'm with you -- I'd go for the pineapple and banana or any fresh fruit all the time.
    Thanks for linking up this week!


We have been having problems in recent weeks with our comment section and I am not quite sure how to fix it. Thanks for letting us know. Some comments have been coming in as emails, so I will respond to those as I get them.
