I have recently joined a challenge at my work on who can lose the biggest percentage of weight.   I am always up for a challenge and I might as well lose a few unwanted pounds while I am at.

EAS is a protein supplement that can be added to a healthy lifestyle.  I always knew protein was a great way to help with weight loss but I never realized how much I needed and my muscles needed after a really great work out.

Author:
Serves: Approx 5 servings
Ingredients
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 bottle red wine (I used pinot noir)
  • 1 cup cherry juice (not tart)
  • 2 cups frozen sweet cherries
  • 1 apple or pear, chopped
  • ½ orange, sliced
Instructions
  1. Start by making a simple syrup: combine sugar and ½ cup water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for several minutes, until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture has thickened slightly. Set aside to cool.
  2. Combine remaining ingredients in a large pitcher. Add simple syrup to taste. Refrigerate for several hours to allow the flavors to blend. Serve over ice, if desired.

Watermelon Slush

Today me and little man had really big plans!!   We played and played in the backyard with our little kiddie pool and splash table for hours!   It was our first 90+ degree weather for the year and I can’t think of another way then spending the day with my little guy!

Since it was hotter the crap outside we needed to have a quick refresher.    We just so happen to have lots of watermelon left over from Memorial weekend.  So I got to thinking  how great watermelon would taste in slushy.   So ladies and gentlemen that is how the Watermelon Slush was born!!   Even my little 2 year old gulped it down!

It was so simple, so easy, so tasty and so refreshing everyone will love it!!!
