Summer Sips + Sweets

July 22, 2013

I don’t know about you, but this never-ending sunshine is making happy hour come mighty easy ’round these parts! I’m trying to eat healthy and walk every night but there’s something about 5 o’clock (ok let’s be real, 4:00) that just begs for a cool sip…or two, if company’s around ;) I’ll have to reign it in at some point but thought I may as well send out a little shout-out to the decadent sips and sweets of summer before my serious workout regime begins. But come on, how refreshing do these cocktails look? Twist my rubber arm…

Yum, right? Do you find it easier to eat healthy in the warmer months? In some ways I do…lighter salads and fruit are always great for lunch and snacks…but I find I get pretty lazy around dinner time so it’s good to keep meat for the BBQ and fresh veggies on hand for last minute meals. Would love to hear your healthy eating tricks and tips! Have a great Monday :)

Whatever that drink is in the last picture in the mason jars has me intrigued…. I do find I choose to have more healthier snacks in the summer and find myself using my little mason jar drink dispenser more because it’s super pretty. Beer is my choice of drink too but as for a treat …… you can’t beat a smore and that picture is too sweet! :-)

Yummm! I definitely find that its easiest to eat healthier and lighter during summer. Being out and about in the sun, i tend to just crave some cold watermelon – my favourite summer treat!
Thanks for sharing!
