Tasty Weight Management
Now that I am officially done having children (4 children is plenty!!) I am seriously cracking down on my health and weight management. After having 3 kids consecutively and feeling as if I had been pregnant and glutenous f o r e v e r, I am looking forward to slimming down and being the healthiest I can be. One significant way to reduce calorie intake daily is by reducing the amount of beverage calories. Filling up on empty beverage calories is silly, but plain water can get dull after a while. Therefore, I am always on the lookout for tasty flavored low calorie drinks. Crystal Light lets you have it all, tasty flavor for your water with just 5 little calories per serving. It’s a thirst quenching, body conscious win!
A Perfect Pairing…That Rocks
One of my absolute favorite herbs is basil, I love the earthy, fresh taste that it has. Even though it is most commonly used in Italian cooking, basil can be used in almost anything. Since it is from the mint herb family, basil provides a rich, pungent zap in sweet drinks that is not overpowering. I usually always have a fresh basil plant in my kitchen, someday I will have an herb garden full of it. I have chosen to create a Crystal Light pink lemonade and basil drink recipe that is low-calorie, super delicious and honestly, my new favorite drink. The basil and sweet lemonade pairs so perfectly together it rocks.
Crystal Light Pink Lemonade and Basil Drink Recipe
2 cups of water
1 Crystal Light Natural Pink Lemonade on-the-go packet
3-4 Small Fresh Basil Leaves
Mix water and Crystal Light in glass
Slightly pinch 3-4 small basil leaves with your fingers to release scent from leaf. Add to drink and stir gently.
Let drink set for 3-4 minutes to allow Basil to blend

It was 6 o’clock in the morning. Missy is on this dress-up kick where she has to wear these large, elaborate dresses during the waking hours -that explains the holiday dress.
