Frozen yogurt and popcorn
Was this you too?
In college, we believed frozen yogurt and movie popcorn were good for us. “Diet” appropriate even. My girlfriends and I would skip dinner and consume a large fro-yo with granola and carob chips (also both supposedly diet friendly). Finishing it off with a large popcorn (sometimes even getting refills!!)! We would wonder why we couldn’t lose any weight.

Based on my research, for optimal blogging results, I have 500 words to get across who we are (I feel like I am writing a college common app essay, and that our whole future depends on this blog entry) so I will try not to go over my word count!
