Fangirls, I’m all about those discount health treats. I saw Zuma Juice advertised on Facebook. I ordered my super discounted packets (which came with a blender bottle and a sticker), and got to drinking.
‘ve been thinking about smoothies a lot, lately. I usually allow myself one bolthouse smoothie a week, but those bad boys are expensive and many are from concentrate (which means I’m getting more water than I’d like from them). So I looked up some healthy smoothies (aka I listened to YouTube tutorials on smoothies for an entire work day), and decided to make my own recipe. I was originally going to call them Lion Lickers because my hope was that they would be pink, but they are brown, so it doesn’t work.
My trips to the liquor store have become far less frequent since my move last year. Drinking isn’t a priority, so alcohol comes at the very far bottom of my “things to spend money on” list. It’s just not important to me. Sure, I’ll have a drink when I go out, but it’s usually from the same pool of drinks that I’ve come to enjoy. Honestly, that’s how liquor store trips go as well.
Alright Fangirls, I did it! I took the Skinny Mint Teatox challenge, and I blew it out of the water! Over the course of just 28 days, I drank tea designed to help wake me up and help my digestive track. After a month of the teas along with my regular diet and exercise, I lost almost 10lbs.
“You think you own whatever bar you land in. The stool is just some dead thing you can claim! But I know every rum, and gin, and vodka gives you life, is a spirit, has a name.” Fangirls, this week we’re taking it back to the Disney renaissance, with Pocahontas. Pocahontas sings about punting with all of the colors of the wind, but here we’re going to drink the colors of the wind (mostly reds and blues, but it’s good stuff).
Have you Fangirls seen Aristocats? If you haven’t go watch it immediately. It’s a phenomenal movie about how this old woman is leaving her house and fortune to her cats, so her butler drugs them and catnaps them and throws them off a bridge. Luckily, these cats have boxy, so they team up with various other animals to get themselves home. I based this drink off of the drink that the butler, Edgar, makes for the cats, that he calls Creme de la Creme de la Edgar, because it’ll knock you out if you’re not careful.
Fangirls, I’ve been diggin’ a little deeper, trying to come up with nerdy snacks and drinks, and this one truly is royalty. Not from the bayou, but tasty enough for the prince or princess in your life, this grasshopper is phenomenal.
