Tofutti vs. Cream Cheese



Tofutti vs. Regular Cream Cheese

So this "cream cheese" chocolate frosting is "skinny" compared to a regular cream cheese frosting.  I thought this might be of interest to some of you.  I posted about this related to "cheesecake" and thought we were due for a reminder!
Cream Cheese Comparison: (info collected from caloriecounter.com)


                           Tofutti              vs.            Cream Cheese
serving size:      2 tablespoons                    1 ounce
calories:             85                                      100
cals from fat:     45                                      81
total fat:             5g                                      9g
saturated fat:      2g                                      6g
Cholesterol:       not listed                            35mg
total carbs:         9g                                       1g
sugars:               2g                                      not listed
protein:              1g                                       2g
Sodium:             160mg                              not listed

So one very important thing...1 tablespoon = 0.5 ounces soooo....these are comparable.  There are pros and cons to both.  If you're a diabetic the Tofutti would mean covering yourself with more insulin.  However, if you are a calories/fats person then the Tofutti wins.  To me...Tofutti looks healthier...but still definitely the definition of cream cheese, not so great for you but a nice treat :).

Also, just for shiggles I thought I would share what I came home from work to find:
Dinner.  The first year Jesse and I were together he took me fishing for my birthday.  It was great little rainy day and we had a lot of fun.  Even though I didn't get to go fishing today these little fish remind of that day.  We caught a few fish and ate them that day.  These little trout will be served with rice tonight and will be delicious :).
