La Croix Sparkling Water

This water is just perfect for the times when I want to drink something carbonated, and it is a much healthier alternative to soda.  It comes in a variety of flavors.  My favorites are berry and coconut.

Half Naked Popcorn

I recently blogged about this popcorn, and I still eat it daily.  It is air-popped, GMO-free, and makes for a convenient fiber-filled snack.

Kombucha

Since women are not advised to drink kombucha while pregnant, it had been a long while since I bought it, but I have been making up for lost time.  I need to learn how to make it at home though because this stuff is pricey!

Skinny Girl Sangria

This isn’t exactly nutritious, but it is much lighter than regular sangria.  It is the first bottle of alcohol from this line by Bethenny Frankel that I have tried, and I predict that i will be drinking this a lot over the summer.

Bubba 32-ounce water bottle

I was so incredibly good about drinking tons of water while I was pregnant, but I slacked off a tiny bit in that area after Addison was born.  In order to make sure that I stay hydrated, I have been filling this water bottle twice a day, and it has really been helping.  And the fact that it is pink makes me happy.

Dynamic Health Lactobacillus Acidophilus Papaya

The title of this is kind of a mouthful, isn’t it?  I’d probably never be able to recall the name of it without looking at the bottle, but I do know that it is rich in probiotics and helps to restore good bacteria within the body.  It is supposed to enhance the immune system, improve digestion, and even reduce yeast infections.  The taste is actually not bad, and I have already polished off an entire bottle.

Cauliflower

It feels kind of random to just throw cauliflower on the list, but I have been really loving it lately (even though it was never a favorite of mine in the past).  My preferred way to eat it is just by roasting it in the oven with grapeseed oil, garlic salt, and pepper.  Because it doesn’t really have a strong taste, it really takes on the flavor of whatever seasonings are used.  For recipes involving cauliflower, check out the piece that I wrote for Scoop Charlotte back in March.

    I haven’t had cherries in awhile. Now I have a major craving for them! Haha. Hope you’re having a great weekend. :)

  2. I love La Croix, too! I have pretty much quit drinking soft drinks but sometimes like a little “fizz.” I was looking at Skinny Girl vodka the other night. I need to try the Sangria! Visiting vis SITS Girls from Nashville. :)

    Thank you for visiting, Jamie! I haven’t tried the Skinny Girl vodka yet, but it is on my list. I found the sangria at CVS, in case you are still trying to find it. :)

    I love La Croix! It is perfect for when I want a fizzy drink. I haven’t tried the popcorn yet, but it is definitely on my grocery list!

  4. I’m really loving fruit at the moment.

    It seems like everytime the weather warms up I always crave fruit.

    Oh and I too love Kombucha, but you’re right its expensive.

    I’d love to learn how to make it at home as well.

    Maybe you should learn and then do a post on it :).

    Best,

    Leigh

  5. Anything with ‘skinny’ and ‘sangria’ in the same sentence, I’m into! Haha. Thanks for the share!
