Hi everyone! I hope you had a great and relaxing weekend and are gearing up for the week to come. Sundays are usually my day to run errands, meal prep a little and get everything ready for the week to come, it’s possibly my most productive day! Plus Game of Thrones is on, and even though there were a lot of spoilers out this week I am SOOO excited about tonight’s episode!
This weekend I treated myself a bit, I finally got to try FitVine wine! I have been dying to try it so when I saw that I could pick it up a couple towns over from me I ran to the store. I tried the Chardonnay (my favorite type of wine) and the Cabernet Sauvignon, both were totally worth the wait!
The Chardonnay was so lite and refreshing, it is a perfect summer night wine. It has little hints of pears and citrus in it that I really loved, it is going to be a staple in my wine fridge. The best part of this wine is that a 5oz glass is about 90 calories and only 3g of carbs!
The Cabernet Sauvinon was also really good. I am not much of a red wine drinker, but I have to say this one will find it’s self in my wine fridge pretty regularly too. I was surprised how smooth this one was! And again per 5oz glass it is about 95 calories and 3.4g of carbs! I was so stoked to wake up this morning and not feel too guilty about having a drink (or two in this case)!
I also made a fun little strawberry dessert! I used really fresh strawberries to make a topping that would be really good on ice cream or on top of a piece of sponge cake (which is what I did)!
Strawberries with fresh mint
- 12-14 strawberries, quartered
- 2 Tbsp raspberry jam
- 1 Tbsp agave
- 1 Tbsp fresh mint, thinly sliced plus extra for garnish if desired
- In a medium sized Tupperware container add the strawberries, raspberry jam, agave, and mint. Gently mix well and refrigerate for at least an hour.
- Serve over ice cream, yogurt, or really anything you’d like and enjoy!
