Current Faves: Food and Drink

My food and drink obsessions definitely change with the seasons.
I usually crave light, airy, fruity and easy foods and drinks this time of the year.
Here are some things I am loving this summer.

Food

1. Cool Mint Clif Bars
I discovered these once I started running.
They taste just like thin mints and have protein.
Win win in my opinion.
2. Diet Sunkist
We all know I am a Diet Coke girl through and through 
but sometimes I like to switch it up a little.
Diet Sunkist really hits the spot on those days.
3. Fresh Fruit
I think I have eaten my body weight in grapes, peaches,
 apples and cantalopethis summer.
I just can't get enough!
4. Blue Moon Margaritas
These are perfect for sitting by the pool or out on the lake
and simple to boot.
When we make them we do one part frozen mango margarita
 and the rest Blue Moon
There's a more detailed recipe here
5. Fire Crackers
This mix is perfect for munching on while by the pool
I'll do a recipe post on it soon!
I made it a few weekends ago and we could not stop eating it!

My husband just got me loving Diet Sunkist about a month ago- it's one of his faves and I like it now too!

And I definitely up my fruit consumption in the summer lol. I always eat fruit, but I can't get enough of it as snacks, in my lunches, etc!
