Ice Cream Vs. Yogurt

My Fibromyalgia flare-up leaves me exhausted, and sometimes exhaustion leads to doing dumb things like drinking burning hot beverages and ruining all appetite for foods with texture while the burn heals.

So yesterday for lunch I had ice cream, and today I had yogurt.  Which is better?

Looks like ice cream has it in the normal case, but perhaps while I'm healing the protein counts for more.  The total calories in one container of Haagen Daz was a bit high, perhaps I could look at some of the smaller container sizes.  Secondary note here is that not all flavors are equal.  I already knew that different Oikos flavors have different additives, apparently they have different nutrition profiles as well.
