Because summer is over, but not in LA…
Back in April I discovered FitVine wine (and some amazing lower back yoga stretches!) and I’ve been honestly hooked ever since. Last week (right before I met Gwen Stefani), I asked my neighbor Ashley if she wanted to go to the super cute park on our street and have some wine and healthy snacks; she said yes (duh) and we brought along FitVine’s brand new Pinot Grigio to sip on 🙂
A Healthy Mini Picnic in the Park
The slightly dry white wine is clean, crisp, and great tasting. It has floral notes on the nose and flavors of green apple and a hint of citrus. Now, I’m 100% a white wine lover and when I say this Pinot Grigio is good, I really mean it. Not to mention the amazing fact that FitVine’s version only has about 90 calories and 3g of carbohydrates at 13.4% alcohol & ~0.2g of sugar (per 5 oz. serving). If you read my last post on FitVine, then you know a normal glass of wine isn’t as healthy (about 100-125 calories per glass). So, you end up saving quite a bit of calories if you have a few glasses, like I normally do. There really is nothing better than healthy wine, in my opinion.
Since we always try to keep it healthy (at least 80% of the time, ha), I brought some fresh grapefruit and strawberries. I also bought my latest snack obsession: walnuts and coconut flakes! I know it sounds weird. But I first tried adding coconut flakes to nuts after the Tone It Up ladies recommended it. I was shocked how much flavor it really adds to nuts. I also top the mix with a little sea salt as well.
The pomegranates were picked from a tree inside the park- such a fun surprise.
Ashley and I were both shocked at how delicious FitVine’s Pinot Grigio tasted with the fruit and nut mix; it really was the perfect accompaniment.
