Ice cream is probably the most heavenly substance on the face of this big blue planet of ours. It’s cold, refreshing, sweet, and basically perfect in every way. Whether it’s a rich chocolate, a smooth vanilla, or a satisfying cookie dough, every flavor has its benefits.
Seriously, if it were acceptable to eat ice cream for every meal, I would. The thing is, as delicious as ice cream is, it isn’t really the best thing for you. There is a lot of fat and sugar in it, and not a lot of protein or any of those other substantial things you need to live a healthy life. But as a treat, nothing will ever beat it.
Even though we all have our own favorite flavors, many of us are willing to try those “low-fat” options that we see. Maybe if it’s still delicious, then we won’t have to restrict how much we eat! However, every time we try out these so-called “healthier alternatives” we find ourselves returning to the higher fat options, because obviously they are just better. Or so we thought.
Scientists have done a study where people were given the option of a low-fat and a high-fat version of ice cream, and participants couldn’t actually tell the difference. But how can this possibly be true?
