Ahhh yes! Spring is approaching... the weather is getting warmer...we are able to step outside again... and all is getting right with the world... except for one thing... BATHING SUIT SEASON! Yikes!
It's that time of year when we have to burn that extra insulated winter fat we put on from staying tucked inside the warm house. I turned 40 this year and this is NO JOKE!!! Love handles have come out of nowhere and rolls have developed in places I didn't know were possible. What the ????
That obnoxious quote, "A moment on the lips, a lifetime on the hips." is now becoming my new truth. And I swear the bathing suits get tinier and tinier just when I need more coverage.... I love my wine and food... what's a girl to do?
I will give up a lot of things for health and well-being, but I am sorry; wine isn't one of them. FORTUNATELY, I came across FitVine Wine.
One night my beautiful, lovely, half-marathon runner friend, Jan brought over a bottle of their wine to try. She is a health nut and I am always tempting her with some wicked indulgences such as Coconut Cream Poke Cake or Chocolate Fudge Brownies. (I know... I am slightly evil.)
Anyways.... I was actually behaving that night making her and her husband my Spinach Crust Pizza. Jan opened a bottle of FitVine's Cabernet Sauvignon. We were so impressed. It was full flavored and smooth... Nothing like you would expect for a "healthy" wine. We loved it. I mean, we really loved it.
I new at that moment I had to try ALL OF THEIR WINE!!!
Here is the skinny on the skinny...FitVine wines are doubled filtered with a dry fermenting process yielding higher antioxidants but less of the bad stuff like sugar, carbs, SULFITES, and calories. They are also NON GMO! In other words... a moment on the lips doesn't mean a lifetime on the hips!! YAY!
Therefore, like a crazy stalker, I tracked down FitVine Wines personally and begged to collaborate with them. I was like, "If you send me a case, I will share it with all my health-nut, work-out friends, and tell the world about you...." And wonderfully, they did!
Thanks to FitVine Wine, I became the most awesome friend ever, creating a beautiful healthy Mediterranean Dinner paired with sampling all of the FitVine wine collection. My friends and I enjoyed the wine and food. Their top favorites were Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc, the Cabernet Sauvignon.
White Wine Skinny Mojito
FitVine's Pinot Grigio is very dry, clean, and crisp. It's natural hints of citrus and goes beautifully with lime and mint. At only 90 calories, .2 grams of sugar, and 3 carbs, this Skinny Mojito is a girls new BFF! Just chill the wine (Or add ice if you like), muddle a few mint leaves, and squeeze some fresh lime wedges. Out comes a refreshing, light, skinny mojito!!
I am not a fan of sweet drinks... and this drink is very dry. For those who want a traditional "sweet" tasting mojito, you can add in Stevia or agave nectar. Me, myself, and I will drink it dry. Cheers! xoxo
