skinny chai tea latte

chai

 

For some reason I just love cozying up on the couch with a big mug of tea.  Chai tea is one of my favorites – vanilla chai to be exact.  Vanilla chai is the perfect blend of sweet and spicy.  If you’re not a big tea drinker, try making my favorite vanilla chai latte.

Ingredients:

Directions:

  • Combine the milk and water and heat to desired temperature.
  • Let tea bag soak for 3-5 minutes.
  • Sip away & enjoy!

Note:  You can add more or less milk depending on your taste.  I always try to add around ¼ cup and I think it’s the perfect amount.  This way, the drink is less than 30 calories if you use non-sweetened almond milk!  The more milk you add, the creamier your latte will be.  You can also add stevia if you like it sweeter.

Here are some of the benefits of Chai Tea – just one more reason why I love drinking it.

  • Contains antioxidants
  • Enhances the immune system
  • Improves digestion

Let me know what you think!

dining out: the right way

Just because you’re dining out, doesn’t mean you have to eat unhealthy.

We went out to brunch today with my brother & sister-in-law to one of my favorite restaurants in the city – Parc. What a beautiful day to eat outside!

As much as I would have loved to have the French toast or the chicken sandwich with fries, I stuck with the chicken paillard which was amazing: flattened chicken topped with a shaved vegetable salad. I used to feel like I had to splurge if I was dining out. I would always order a dish that came with French fries. (Fries are my weakness!) Skipping the fries is definitely hard but I know they’re so bad for you. Sigh.

I also had the iced mint latte. Yum! It wasn’t too sugary and the mint flavor was a nice, refreshing touch.

Hope you all had a nice weekend!
