You guyssss! It’s officially summer (Insert happy dance here) 🙂

It always feels like summer is real when my number one priority becomes finding and enjoying allllll the delicious drinks. Who can relate? IMHO yummy drinks = one of life’s greatest joys. Especially during the heat of the summer 🔥

Give me sparkling water with a big ol’ wedge of lemon, fresh pressed juices every color of the rainbow, maple sweetened vanilla cold brew by the gallon (finally this year-round-cold-brew drinker can enjoy it without all the weird looks! 😛) and I am happy as can be.

And because of that stunner of a drink right up there ⬆ I’m also definitely adding some refreshing vinegar based fruit shrubs to the mix this summer too 

Have you guys every tried a fruit and vinegar shrub?!

They are SO good. 

This naturally sweetened strawberry mint shrub is:

 
The PERFECT balance of tart + sweet

MEGA Refreshing

PACKED with juicy strawberry flavor

a SERIOUSLY pretty shade of ruby red (that matters, right?!)

I honestly don’t know how you could not love it. Even P (my love), who is not at all a fan of anything remotely “vinegary” is super into it!

Basically what I’m trying to say is this shrub = summer hydration goals.

Fried eggs + salad = pretty much every weekend breakfast for me ever.

Okay maybe not every one ever… (case in point – I do sometimes go for pancakes, too). But it is my go-to, tried and true breakfast for whenever I have more time than to make a smoothie or grab a couple of hard boiled eggs.

So every Friday when I stock up my refrigerator for the weekend I alllllways make sure I have eggs and salad ingredients. It’s seriously the easiest most versatile breakfast that I am never not in the mood for. It’s healthy, quick, and very delicious (<– the most important things).

And while I don’t usually like to tell people what to do, I definitely think you guys should give the formula a try this weekend 😉 The beauty of it is in the delicious simplicity. Salad of your favorite seasonal ingredients + fried eggs is an equation that never tastes bad.
