This Raw Gelato Just Might Be Worth $9 A Pint...

Wow. Hello, Organic Nectars. I'm Mandy. I have a crush on you.

This stuff may be a revelation. Honestly, it is as good as some of the best ice cream I've ever had. Now, it doesn't necessarily feel exactly like ice cream, but it is independently just a wonderful, wonderful product. Creamy, thick, beautiful vanilla flavor. And at 105 calories per serving...unbelievable. I may go broke, but I will not be fat.

I had two servings (1 cup) with 1 cup of crushed Peanut Butter Puffins. I tell you, who's gonna miss a Dairy Queen Blizzard (at 800 calories, at least)? This was 360 calories and felt like pure decadence. This is EXACTLY what I will strive to deliver with my baked goods. So inspiring!

In other news, I have a confession to make. I am a rusher. I rush to finish something so I can hurry up and rush through the next thing. Whenever a task begins to feel challenging (and most tasks, at some point, do) I go into either "fuck it" mode or "just get through it" mode. Which means that most of the time I am not doing my best work. This fact scares me. A lot. It scares me that I know this about myself, have "learned my lesson" a number of times and yet, I still rush. I'm scared that I will lose valuable opportunities as a result of said rushing, or that I will be judged as mediocre because I won't take the time to make anything great.

I want to be great, like Organic Nectars Raw Agave Gelato great!

Thanks for listening.
