Staying Hydrated! Coconut Water & Raspberry Cocktail

Staying hydrated.  It’s one of the biggest things we preach to ourselves and our girlfriends when we go out for a night on the town with them!  I can hear myself telling my friend right now… “Oh honey, go home and drink a BIG glass of water, take two Advil and you’ll feel awesome tomorrow! No hangover, I promise!!”

So being that I’m a good friend, I’d like to share a little secret to the “not feeling like sh*t the next day” drinking trick.  Coconut Water.

Ok, stop laughing.  I’m serious! It’s like the fountain of superior hydration low in calorie fat free juices!  It’s filled with magnesium, calcium and vitamin C.  It’s rad and tastes good!

Coconut water seems to be one of those things that you’re seeing everywhere in the super-market.  Every corner you turn you see those eco-friendly boxes that are filled with the stuff!  At first I resisted. I mean, I like coconut, but what’s all the fuss about?  Then I caved in… hated it at first… then found a brand that I just loved and now I can’t get enough of the stuff!!! What a love story, right?  It’s a really mild flavor of coconut.  It’s not in your face BAM! Don’t go for the sweetened ones, go for unsweetened, it’s so much better for you.

Cures for Insomnia Through Food


Remember the days pre-kids when it was just so cool to be up at 2 a.m? You most likely were strolling in from a fantastic night out that probably involved dinner, dancing and a fancy dress.  Well,  I can say with certainty that nowadays when I’m looking at the clock and it says 2 a.m. I’m angry, annoyed and the only thing that’s dancing is my brain with the three thousand things that I have on the agenda of what I’m doing the next day!!

DETOX JUICE… Cleanse! Energize! Rejuvenate!


So here we are… full swing into the summer.  The kids have been home for what seems like an eternity and I can tell you this much… as hard as I’ve tried,  I know I haven’t been eating as healthy as I could be.  Call it a case of “the-kids-are-home-and-are-making-me-eat-more-junk-food-snacks-itis.”  Yes, I have a serious case of it going on right now!  So what’s a better time than now to think about doing a little detox juice cleanse… and do I have the perfect recipe for you!

What’s great about this recipe is that it’s a perfect way to recharge, rejuvenate and renew your body and flush out the toxins and jump start yourself to get back on the healthy train! It’s high in fiber… low in fat!

Now I’m not talking about doing a fasting cleanse… by all means I’m not saying drink this and don’t eat… I’m talking about making a fresh pressed  juice that is full of vitamins, minerals, fiber, antioxidants and all of the things that can keep you going and active throughout the day!

Sweet N Low Cosmo

Kinda loving this twist on the classic Cosmo recipe right now.  I stand behind any drink that’s half the calories, tastes just as good as the original and does the trick!

Sweet N Low Cosmo

  • 3 ounces seltzer water (or club soda)
  • 1 ounce vodka
  • 1 packet Sweet’N Low® zero calorie sweetener
  • 1 ounce cranberry juice
  • 1 lemon slice or mint sprig, for garnish, optional

In a chilled shaker, mix the cranberry juice, vodka, Sweet’N Low, and seltzer water. Add ice and shake vigorously. Strain and serve chilled. Garnish with lemon slice or mint sprig, if desired.

Moms Gone Zen Sweet N Low Cosmo

The Moms Gone Zen twist… serve over crushed ice.  It’s almost like a grown up cosmo-slurpee! We like.
