Day drinking is fun. Especially on a beautiful Saturday when it’s eighty degrees outside and you’re surrounded by friends & the beach. Unfortunately, it also can make you overeat, become extremely dehydrated, & often times is accompanied by a late night pounding headache. Here are some of my tips that I swear by when I am downing afternoon bubbly:

Day Drinking 101:

+ For every cocktail, drink a glass of water [ << this one's important ].

+ Eat protein while drinking [ Saturday's choice? Spinach, mushroom & zucchini egg omelette w/ fruit ].

+ Try not to mix…too much [ I mixed champagne + one spicy Bloody Mary ].

+ Carry snacks [ ideas: 100 calorie packs, dried fruit, & nuts ].

+ Do not party into the night [ if this happens, at least change clothes & brush your hair ].

+ Don’t overdrink, no one likes a sloppy drunk.

+ Use water, instead of bloating soda water for mixed drinks [ ex. vodka & water w/ a lemon ].

+ Order appetizers, not meals.

Lastly, if you’re going to choose to drink, at least eat right. Balance it out. There’s absolutely no reason to mack down a medium pizza & fries.

P.S. The winner to the goodie bag & Starbucks card giveaway is: Blair Allen [ picked by Random.org ]. Congrats!

Pesto Spaghetti Squash

Let’s face it, bigger veggies [ think eggplant, squash, radishes, etc. ] can be rather intimidating, especially to cook with. My girlfriend, Casey, requested that I post an easy recipe with a large, discouraging vegetable. Thanks to my step-mom I absolutely adore spaghetti squash.

Entirely nervous to undergo this recipe on my own, would be an understatement. Useful discovery? It was ridiculously easy. I promise you’ll be surprised how effortlessly the squash falls out, forming itself in to perfect shape of “spaghetti.” Best part: 12 carbs & 5 grams of protein per serving. Honestly, I could eat this every night.

After a day of cocktails by the beach, I am slightly hungover & not feeling so hot. This afternoon I took a cat nap, drank an embarrassing amount of water & ate a lot of greens. I am slowly starting to feel better. Tonight’s itinerary: ordering in healthy Mexican food [ black bean chili rellenos with extra corn ], watching Shameless & spooning Pixy. Happy Sunday!
