Skip the Ben & Jerry's... have Skinny Cow instead
First we must discuss the matter of the terrible name. "Skinny Cow" is, indeed, a truly terrible name. But if you can get past it, you're in for a treat. Literally. Because Skinny Cow ice cream sandwiches are freaking delicious. To make things even better, Skinny Cow's mint-flavored ice cream sandwiches are 150 calories, compared to 260 in a serving of Ben & Jerry's Mint Chocolate Cookie ice cream.
Plus, Skinny Cow's single-serve packaging makes it easier to stick to an actual serving size -- this is crucial for people who frequently find themselves scraping the bottom of the ice cream carton in a single sitting.
Skip the granola... have an English muffin instead
If you're a person who reaches for a box of granola in the cereal aisle in an attempt to be virtuous, knock that off. Granola, despite its reputation as a good-for you breakfast option, tends to be high in sugar and calories. Quaker Oats natural granola has 210 calories and 6g of fat compared to 120 calories and 1g of fat in a Thomas' English muffin. So feel free to splurge by spreading some jam in those nooks and crannies, and leave the granola for the hippies.
