my favorite skinny margarita

I may be mistaken to be younger than my 18 year old sister quite often (I swear it’s just the height difference!!) BUT I am of legal drinking age. Lately, I have been sippin on these homemade skinny girl margaritas! I promise you, you will not miss the preservative-filled, high-sugar, 500 calorie per serving (could be a bit of an exaggeration) sweet and sour mix that is used in most margaritas!

Blondie’s Skinny Girl Margarita

makes 1

2 squeezed limes

2 oz. tequila (I like patron, but let’s be real…I’m a college student so that only happens when I go home!)

touch of agave nectar (I get this at trader joes)

Shake up and serve over ice with a slice of lime! So refreshing and perfect with a yummy fajita night dinner!

hi!

I’m alive!!

Keeping up with the blog while in college, working and having an internship has been tough, so my posts may be sporadical but I’m not going to give up on it!

I am now finishing up my last year of college and in the process of figuring out what I’m going to do with the rest of my life! Ahh! It’s scary, but so exciting. Even if I don’t end up doing something in the field of nutrition, it will continue to be one of my biggest passions!

In other news, my sister and I have started a healthy lifestyle Instagram! Follow us at @keepit_klean. We often post recipes, inspirational quotes and workout ideas! Below is a little taste of what will be on the Instagram account.
