SMART Girls Guide To: Eating Right on Holiday Weekend

“I really want to lose 3 lbs”

Long weekend is here and mimosas’s are being chugged like cold water on a hot Summer’s day and hot dogs are consumed more than the Hot Dog Eating Contest.

Aside from throwing back glass after glass of mimosas, you’re probably not thinking of how much sugar you’re ingesting, and thinking that munching on prosciutto wrapped melon thinking it will somehow cancel the calories.

Wishful thinking. Continue reading “SMART Girls Guide To: Eating Right on Holiday Weekend”

Lazy Girls Guide To: Summer Salad

We’re cool for the Summer.

Basically the only way of making a fun and Instagram worthy salad. All you need is a pineapple, cucumber, avocado, arugula, dried cranberries and nuts! It’s that easy. And you will end up making snaps of it and hashtagging “pineapple goals”, “healthy eating”, “can’t believe I made this”, “that fit life be like”, etc.

If you’re deciding to host brunch or attend one–which you probably will, Summer is THE season for brunching ( just kidding, every season is brunching season!) this is what you’d want to bring!

The Cool Salad is very easy to make: cut the pineapple in half, carve out the fruit and just add all of the items above all diced up, including the diced pineapples. Very fresh and light, something that Blair Waldorf would end up eating (but not making, let’s be honest).

Enjoy!

Cus It’s Summertime

Today is officially Summer. The official time for the sun to shine brighter, skin gets darker, and nights get longer. So how to celebrate the most anticipated season of all? Hitting the beach, tanning, being outside and just taking everything in. But, if you’re anything like me, you’re probably just tanning outside trying to get some color in that tush.

With that being said, I present the freshest healthy drink to keep that tan glowin’ for the entire season. If you don’t know—know you know: carrots emphasizes the glow of your skin, so keep that veggie on the go.

My favorite summer homemade juice is Carrot & Orange Cool Splitz—totally made that name up, but it’s not only refreshingly good, it’s my go-to pre/post tanning sesh juice.

Here’s what you need:

  • 2 Carrots

  • 1 Fresh orange

  • ½ cup of O.J

  • Fresh mint

  • ½ lemon

  • Water

Blend it all together with ice. Once done add a hint of sparkling water and you are good to glow!

Lay back and unwind ’cause, nothing else matters, for the summertime.Oh Aaron.
