    I usually do have something sweet every night. I try to pick pre-packaged things though so I limit my serving because tubs of ice cream normally have 12 – 16 servings and its always gone in 4ish for me, so single serving work better for me (but not the environment!). My latest treat is last night I bought mango italian ice. They are only 100 calories and are delicious. Plus they take a little while to eat since they’re hard – perfect!

      I’m glad I’m not the only one that eats too much ice cream. 😉 And yes, 16 servings in a tub usually only lasts for half of that!

    I eat a snack every night, but I don’t necessarily call it dessert. It is usually on the sweeter side, though. Sometimes it is fruit and cheese, or a Balance bar, or pumpkin souffle.

    Not to say the occasional chocolate chip binge doesn’t sneak in there from time to time LOL!

      I love having chocolate chips as a treat. I eat less of them!

    Sadly (or perhaps happily), I seem to have consumed my lifetime allotment of sugar. So, for my serenity and sanity, I no longer have a food if sugar is one of the first 5 ingredients. But I am not mourning the loss because I have so many sweet choices in alternative sweeteners such as Splenda, Truvia , and fruits such as dates. If you have had a Lara Bar you will understand about the joy of dates.

    I have a sweet treat once a week. There do go weeks where I skip the once a week treat and it does not bother me much. Sweet things now mostly consists of things like fruit or honey in my yogurt.
