This isn’t bragging, this is quantum physics, let me explain: in a nutshell we, or rather everything, is energy based, we are conditioned over time to believe certain things, and this creates our belief system, which then creates our expectations, which then realize themselves in the physical world. Positive energy, feeling good about yourself, telling yourself ‘good stories’ about people, places, food, etc. means positive outcomes by chancing your belief system, and thus your expectations (no Debbie Downers allowed here). So brag about yourself and this fabulous ice cream you’re about to serve your friends, it’s not arrogance, it’s called self-love and that makes for a good life, so rub it in all you like! (note: I am no scientist here, so please do not send me any hate mail or further questions on the details of quantum physics, this is just my layman interpretation).
This is not just a kick ass way to beat the heat, it’s more like a kung-fu kick to blazin’ temps with the boat load of potassium from the figs to keep your blood pressure low (as the mercury rises), while as being a fruit source of calcium to keep your bones strong. Now don’t get me started on the walnuts, we all know that they are a powerhouse for nutrients, with its particular form of vitamin E, high levels of omega 3’s, not to mention its proven benefits in cardiovascular and respiratory health.
So now that we know that this is definitely ‘good for you’ ice cream – get your sexiness in the kitchen and whip up some ice cream because this ice cream will not ‘make you look fat in that dress’, just the opposite can be said, you’ll be lookin’ even more show stoppin’ in that!
Note: for those who do not have an ice cream maker, I promise to post some ice cream recipes soon that do not require one!
