Warmest wishes for 2011!
With the holidays behind us, I need to lighten up. So I have seized the opportunity to start the year off right by beginning my diet on the quintessentially cliche January 1st. If it’s your plan to do the same [and with me to suffer along with you] let’s start off the new year together with some skinnier recipes. You can find them here… that is, until my jeans once again slip effortlessly over my bum. I will be sipping this spritzer as a way to stay hydrated without the constant reminder that pounding water all day brings. This light and bright beverage sends a message that we are treating ourselves well rather than living in deprivation.
Seasonal Skinny Spritzer:
juice of 4 blood oranges and a dozen Meyer lemons + 1/4 cup Truvia or Splenda granules
3 bottles Pellegrino or sparkling water of your choice.
Keep the juice mixture in an airtight pitcher in the fridge. To enjoy – pour approx 1 1/2 inches of sweetened juice in bottom of tall glass and fill to top with sparkling water (If you combine in advance, your beverage will lose its bubbles).
