National Ice Cream for Breakfast Day

Wednesday, March 21, 2012

My breakfast this morning....
Life is short... eat dessert first. What better opportunity than National Ice Cream for breakfast day. In memory of Bruce Rosenberg and all others who have fought for their lives, we started our day with waffles and ice cream, and gratitude.
 
From the Ice Cream for Breakfast facebook page:
On March 21st, 2011, Bruce Rosenberg was diagnosed with Cancer. It turns out that it was Stage 4 Metastatic Melanoma. One of the things that came to mind was "Have Ice Cream for breakfast". It was a mantra of sorts, a metaphor for living life. As sad as it is to have such... an epiphany about life only when faced with something that threatens it, it would be sadder still if others didn't understand before they too faced some crisis themselves. He felt that March 21st should be Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day as much as a show of support as an affirmation that everyone will vow to live life and not take even the small things for granted.
 
Bruce lost his battle with melanoma just 9 days short of March 21 this year. In his memory, let's honor his wishes and eat ice cream (or sorbet or frozen yogurt or whatever indulgence you want!) for breakfast on March 21.

My cousin Karon would've loved this day, that's for sure. She never met an ice cream she didn't like. :) Thanks for making me smile today.

Ice cream for breakfast? Not something I would do :)

@ Blackhuff... then you are missing out. It's not about the ice cream, it's about making a special effort to enjoy your life that you have, and honor those who are fighting for theirs. And nutritionally speaking: a half-cup scoop of ice cream has 120 calories and 12 grams of sugar. A quarter cup of syrup has 200 calories and 32 grams of sugar. Which sounds healthier on a waffle? So live a little, and don't judge until you've tried it!

Absolutely! Ice Cream is a very healthy snack.... especially if it's home-made and made with raw heavy cream and grade B maple syrup.
