Shocker: I love wine. Let’s be honest: I mean, enjoying a beautiful, pricy glass of a Bordeaux 2007 vintage while I’m staring off into the sunset is my favorite hobby ever…
Uhhh…reality check! How often does that scenario happen? BA!
Life is cray, so when it comes to wine I’m not too much of a snob. For instance, Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio gets the job done; it’s light, crisp, & delish.
Next time you’re sippin’, try this: add a bunch of ice/reusable ice cubes to your white wine.
Why? Because it takes longer to drink, you’ll consume less [ meaning less calories/sugar/carbs ], & adding ice promotes hydration [ ice= water= no hangover= winning ].
Unless you’re a profesh wine sommelier, this tip is the.best.evs. Esp for the holidays.

Normally, I am a fan of Jimbo’s, Sprouts Farmer’s Market or Trader Joe’s, but when I am in a bind I’ll settle for Ralph’s. When my friend, Brittany, recommended that I share my personal picks from a regular grocery store chain, I got excited!
I try & tackle my grocery shopping after I’ve eaten, otherwise I end up buying way toooo much food. My personal favorite in the cart? Jalapeño hummus [ which goes perf with Belgian Endive lettuce instead of chips ].
