I’m not a naturally thin person. I don’t naturally eat like a bird nor do I have the metabolism of a race horse. I love food and it, sadly, loves my thighs. I’ve said it over and over on this blog, I keep my diet and waistline in check by planning. I try to surround myself with food and drinks that won’t derail me. I haven’t always been a success in this regard, due to some sumptuous Indian snacks that have grown on me quite recently (you can find more about them in the link provided).
However, I consider myself a busy person and if I don’t plan my meals and snacks I eat things I shouldn’t and usually to much. But when I plan my eating is spot on.
I have been a H-U-G-E fan of Skinnygirl products since the launch of the Skinnygirl Margarita. A low calorie margarita that didn’t taste like garbage….GENIUS!!!! Hats off Bethenny Frankel, hats off. Needless to say it was love at first sip. Since then I have tried many Skinnygirl product and they have never disappointed (FYI…the Salt and Lime popcorn..THE BOMB with a Skinnygirl Watermelon Margarita and an episode of Real Housewives of New York) . I love the Skinnygirl brand concept, high quality products that allow for healthy indulgences. Yes…indulgences because at the end of the day it’s all about portion controls.
Needless to say when I was offered the opportunity to try Bethenny Frankel’s new line of Sparklers, Liquid Water Enhancers, chocolates, mints and coffee I jumped at the opportunity.
I drink a lot of water, but every so often you want a flavored beverage. The Skinnygirl Sparkles are my go to choice sweetened with all natural fruit juices, honey, cane sugar and Sucralose. They only have 5 calories and come in great flavors. I love the black raspberry. (another FYI, it pair really well with my Spinach Salad for a light flavorful lunch).
Skinnygirl Liquid Water Enhancers
I like to pack light so always carrying Skinnygirl Sparklers with me isn’t realistic. Skinnygirl Water Enhances come in a tiny bottle and with just a squeeze you can turn water into a fruity drink. I actually carry the enhancers in my purse. The water enhances are naturally sweetened with sugar and stevia and just 5 calories. They are available in Pineapple Coconut, White Cherry, Tangerine Pink Grapefruit and Blueberry Acai. (yet another FYI, White Cherry Water Enhancer, Club Soda, Vodka garnished with a slice of lemon. You can thank me later)
Skinnygirl Sugar Free Mints
Nothing is worse than dragon breath. Nothing is worse than a bunch of mints randomly running amuck in the bottom of your purse. Skinnygirl mints solve both of those problems. I have to say the packing on Skinnygirl products is amazing. The mints are probably my favorite not only do they come in a little metal container they have a dispensing “thing” that keeps the mints from all falling out at once. LOVE.
Skinnygirl Chocolate Candy
I’m not sure I need to say much more here than DELICIOUS! 100 calories of heavenly chocolate. Skinnygirl chocolate is natural, made with organic coconut oil, have no preservatives and no trans fat. The portion of the Chocolate Pistachio Caramel is substantial. You feel like you’re getting more than just taste. And how cute is that candy bar???
Sometimes I do just want a taste. The sea salt toffees are perfect. I normally split the two pack with Charlie. But when he is not home I save one for later. (yep…another FYI, pop the these in the freezer. They taste awesome frozen)
I’m a total coffee snob and I have to say not bad Skinnygirl, not bad.
