Summer’s comingggggg! Yaaayyy! I’m so excited to get my hands on all of the colorful, delicious summertime fruit. I mean, who doesn’t like throwing frozen grapes in some bubbly while lounging poolside?

Obviously I do ; ).

Anyway here’s some easy, quick skinny snacks with summer fruit:

+ Berries ( black/boysen/raspb/straw ):

  • Add them to Greek yogurt.
  • Make this 5 second, fresh au naturel jam.
  • Throw a medley of berries into Ezekiel cereal ( or any sprouted cereal ).
  • Stuff raspberries with dark chocolate pieces ( more info here ).
  • Dip strawberries in dark chocolate for a quick, easy dessert. Watch our tutorial here.
  • Dressing: put any berries through a sieve to remove the seeds. Add a bit of olive oil & some fresh squeezed lemon juice. Add pinch of sea salt & black pepper & toss into a salad.
  • Smoothies!! Duh. Everyone loves a berry smoothie. My favorite: a banana, spinach leaves, raspberries, water, & hemp seeds. Cheers!

+ Green grapes:

  • They’re THE best frozen treat. After they’re frozen use them as ice cubes in your wine! Check out this post.
  • Eat them with a slice of jalapeño cheese! YUM.
  • I am obsessed with grapes + low fat cottage cheese.
  • Add sliced grapes to tuna or chicken salad.
  • Stomp them into wine. Kidding. Kind of.

+ Tangerines ( aka ‘Cuties’ &/or clementines )

  • Literally the perfect ‘purse snack.’ I may or may not carry three in my oversized handbag on the reg.
  • These cutie tangy’s are delish in any fruit salad. I am obsessed with this salad.
  • This may sound weird. But I’m seriously, serious when I say I always dip tangerine slices into hummus.
  • Add sliced tangerines to any chicken dish. The flavors pair well together.
  • Use the zest of a tangerine peel ( in substitution of a lemon twist ) in any poolside cocktail.

What’s your favorite way to use summer fruit? xx.L

DIY Fiber-Filled Cereal…Because Honey Smacks Isn’t Cutting It

I’m a hugggge fan of cereal. It’s quick, effortless, & super filling.

However cereals like Lucky Charms & Fruity Pebbles do absolutely nothing for you besides adding blubber to your ass.

There are some brands that are packed with fiber ( examples: Ezekiel’s cereal, Fiber One, & original Shredded Wheat ) but I prefer to DIM ( do it myself ).

Why wouldn’t I? This mixture takes a total of two minutes & I love knowing exactly what I’m putting in my body. Chemical-filled, sickie cereals just don’t do it for me.

Extra additions: almond milk, rice milk, or Greek yogurt. And a sprinkle of cinnamon/nutmeg/pumpkin pie spice is real mouth party too.

Quick skinny tip: use bowls that are this size when you’re wolfing down any kind of cereal. Think: portion control, portion control, portion control!

Love.L

What time is it in Cali? LOL. No, really. I’m exhausted.

We’re in Florida working a trade show for NBAA [ last year's post can be found here ] & each day we’re in full work mode- work, eat, work, work, workout, read, work, blog, work, wine, work. Fun shit.

For anyone who works trade shows on the reg: how do you eat healthy? It’s HARD. There’s very little options. Luckily I came prepared with snacks.

Even though it’s exhausting after the show, I try to squeeze in an hour on the Elliptical..because getting the endorphins going feels so much better than laying around like a lazy slob. Right?!

Love.L
