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 Drink Recipes #PlatniumPoints #shop
