Healthy Margarita!

* Salt rim with Himalayan pink salt

* 1 shot of tequila

* 1 part Simply Limeade juice

* 1 part Simply Grapefruit juice

* Fresh lime

A healthy margarita is also known as a “skinny margarita” when you order at a restaurant. What makes it a skinny or healthy margarita? It’s the amount of ingredients that make up the drink. Most margaritas are made with a mix, and mixes are loaded with preservatives and sugars. Next time you order a margarita, ask for a skinny. They are typically made with fresh juice, tequila and agave and sea salt. Keep your drinks simple, like this one!

For the tequila I used CASAMIGOS and it was delicious! It’s the perfect tequila for sipping too.

I also look for a juice that is not made from concentrate. Simply brand uses real fruit juice with the least amount of ingredients as possible.

Leave me a comment below and let me know how it turned out for you! Enjoy!

The 1 secret I used to lose weight and lose the bloat

Lose the weight, lose the bloat, feel amazing! I created this drink after reading the benefits….. I’ve been drinking this for a few years now and it has changed my life! It’s now a habit, it’s my #1 healthy habit that I can’t live without. If you make this, let me know what you think! Tag me on Instagram @fitlifedee

If you’re not a fan of the fruit I use,,, use an orange or a grapefruit instead. I just use the fruit as added flavor.

I've been making this drink every morning for the past 3 years and it has forever changed how I look and feel. I drink this as soon as I get up. I drink this as I'm getting ready for work. I drink this before I drink coffee and before I eat breakfast.
