The Super Bowl is this weekend and many love to celebrate with their favorite drinks. Obviously these includes an adult beverage (so if you’re under 21 you need to stop reading now) and usually that beverage is a nice cold beer. But this year I’m shaking things up with a Mexican theme and celebrating in style with this Skinny Margarita.

In an effort to bring lighter fare to the menu for our Super Bowl shindig and to cater to my Weight Watchers lifestyle, we’ve whipped up some delicious skinny margaritas that are sure to be a crowd-pleaser. Especially when paired with the street tacos I have planned.

With a simple ingredient list, easy directions, and a great taste, this is the perfect recipe to replace your cold one this Sunday.

partida skinny margarita tequila

From the gorgeous, sleek bottles, to the smooth taste, Partida Tequila is a delicious addition to any football party.

Now I’m no tequila connoisseur but living in San Diego I’ve had a shot or two south of the border and I have to say that Partida tequila is something that would be kept in my cupboards.

And now that I have this delicious, calorie friendly alternative to my favorite margarita, I may be seeing more of Partida in the near future. Responsibly, of course.

Skinny Limits Juice Cleanse: Finding My Balance

Disclaimer - Review Posts
skinny limits juice cleanse - standard cleanse

It’s been almost a month since I rejoined Weight Watchers and have started again on my path to a healthier me. So after completing the 2 weeks on Simple Start I thought it’d be good to try a juice cleanse like the Skinny Limits juice cleanse before jumping in to my normal Weight Watchers lifestyle.

I had every intention of completing the juice cleanse as it was intended (juice only) however after my juice was delivered my body decided on something else. I came down with a sinus infection that left my body weak and drained.

Since the juice is completely natural and raw, made without pasteurization or processing, it needs to be consumed within four days of receiving it so I had to modify my plan a bit due to my illness. But luckily, with the help of the juices (in my opinion), I not only finished the cleanse but the worst of my sinus infection is now gone! [Read more…]

Green Monster Protein Smoothie {6 WW+}

Green Monster Protein SmoothieThere’s one thing I’ve been obsessed about for months. Something that’s healthy for me that I actually crave at times. And you’ll think I’m crazy, but they really are good. What am I talking about? This green monster protein smoothie.

No, seriously… this protein-packed green machine is something I blend up in the morning and enjoy sipping until the very end. I have to thank the frozen banana and teaspoon of PB2 for that.

Haven’t heard of PB2? Well it’s basically powdered peanut butter and is much more calorie friendly than your typical jar of Skippy or Jif. You can find it on Amazon or on select store shelves. You can also find another version from Just Great Stuff that tastes very similar. And? It also comes in chocolate peanut butter form too!

I’ve spotted the Just Great Stuff brand at Target and Whole Foods but there are specialty stores around town that carry PB2 as well. And the protein powder? I pick up the Whole Foods generic brand, 365. It was recommended by a few people and I enjoy the taste.

Oh, and this whole huge 24oz cup? 6 WW+ points! How awesome is that? Definitely a breakfast I can dig before a workout. Then, when I have more time at lunch, I enjoy some scrambled eggs after my workouts. [Read more…]

Enjoy Each Month with Cycle Ease Tea from Anna Naturals

Cycle Ease Tea from Anna Naturals

One thing I absolutely hate about being a woman is that time of the month. I feel icky, bloated, crampy, and just overall out of sorts. But for the past two months I’ve been able to enjoy it a little more with the help of Cycle Ease tea from Anna Naturals.

Cycle Ease is an herbal tea that combines a premium blend of herbs like red raspberry leaf, organic cramp bark, and juniper berries with hibiscus and strawberry to create a delicious, refreshing tea that helps alleviate menstrual cramps and other cyclical discomforts.

I was a bit skeptical at first but I have to say that I do feel better after drinking it. And not only when it’s that time of the month… it also helps with the cramping I get during ovulation too! Double score. What? You don’t cramp when you ovulate? Lucky you! [Read more…]

Handcraft Wines uncorked

Have you heard of HandCraft Wines? If not, then you need to!

I received two bottles to try out: the Inspiration Red and the Inspiration White. And I have to say both were enjoyed by all who tasted them.

Now tasting the wine was fun. And getting my friends opinions on the wine was even more fun. But the best part about HandCraft Wines is the passion they have for fighting breast cancer through their HandCraft Heros campaign. [Read more…]

Juicing Recipes: Green Monster Juice

green monster juice benefits of juicingAbout a month or two ago I received a new toy for review. The NutriPro Juicer arrived at my doorstep all shiny and new and I couldn’t wait to bust it open and start using it.

The first juice I made with my juicer was a simple carrot juice. But I found that just because there was only one ingredient didn’t mean it’d be easy to get a full glass of juice! So I branched out into more complex juice recipes to find a green juice I love.

And this green monster juice hits the spot! There’s no need for any fruit other than the lime but if you’d like you can add 1/2 an apple. I chose not to so that I don’t have to figure out the calories, etc for my Nutrisystem program.

I’m using these juices as a way to get in more servings of veggies on top of the 4 I already get. And I’m having a lot of fun figuring out different variations with the veggies we have on hand!
