Bethenny Frankel Talks SkinnyGirl

As part of my "real" job, I had the opportunity to spend the day with one of the women I admire most, Bethenny Frankel! Bethenny is not only a super mom, dedicated wife, natural foods chef, author, and TV personality (should I go on?) she also founded SkinnyGirl, an entire line of products aimed at providing solutions for women's everyday needs. My personal favorite... the SkinnyGirl margarita (she even hooked me up with a bottle on my way out tonight).

For those who haven't tried it, the SkinnyGirl margarita is a great alternative to the frequently calorie-loaded bevi. This concoction is made of tequila, triple sec and agave nectar so it keeps the sugar count down while still offering the delish, but refreshing citrus taste you crave.

What's even better? Bethenny tipped me off that the SkinnyGirl line is expanding this Spring - be on the lookout for Pom-opolitans, Vodka Iced Tea and (drum roll, please) Sangria! In the meantime, check out how you can whip up your own SkinnyGirl Red Sangria here. All you need is:
  • 8 peaches, pitted and sliced
  • 4 white plums, pitted and sliced
  • 1 pound green grapes, cut in half
  • 3 bottles Prosecco
  • One 12-ox can Fresca
  • One 12-oz can club soda
Another thing I envy about Bethenny is her ability to do it all, while staying so fit. Can I get some of those genes? Curiosity killed the cat so I asked her if she had any tips to keep from over indulging and she told me that times she's out on the social scene, "I drink 2-3 glasses of wine. It's fine to indulge yourself, just don't get too sloppy. You shouldn't need anything more than those 2 to 3 glasses."

I guess my problem is I drink 2 to 3 bottles.... woops! ;-)
