I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf ofSkinnygirl. I received a product sample and a promotional item to facilitate my review.
I thought it was impossible for me to love Bethenny Frankel any more, but she’s proven me wrong (as she does). I’ve always admired her for her no-nonsense attitude, her transparency, and her business savvy. As a working mom, I have to admit that I idolize other successful women entrepreneurs a bit, and she’s definitely one of my faves. Not only has she created a smash hit with her Skinnygirl brand, she’s made it her mission to show that you can have it all — go out with the girls, but do it without ruining your hard work that you’ve put in all week on your diet.
Can you tell I kind of like her? I like her.
And now I like her even more. ‘Cause girlfriend came out with HUMMUS. SKINNYGIRL. HUMMUS. This is enough for me to nominate her for sainthood, pretty much. Once I caught Maisy, age 3, standing in the middle of the kitchen, licking hummus straight out of the tub. I couldn’t even be mad. I know the feeling. The hummus force is strong.
I usually don’t eat it straight from the tub (…and I stress “usually”), and my go-to dipper is whole wheat pita bread or veggies — carrots, celery, even cukes sometimes. Sometimes I’m forced to skip the pita, though, because I don’t have the room in my diet for that day. But dudes, Saint Frankel heard my prayers and gave us a hummus that’s made with non-fat Greek yogurt, is reduced calorie, all-natural, gluten-free and kosher. BOSS.
So I was sent a container of Roasted Red Pepper to try, and I’m the first to admit that I have a crazy aversion to bell peppers. I don’t know what it is, but they’re not my thing. But you know who’s thing it is? MAISY’S. I put a dollop on her plate and gave her a few pita triangles. She went to town! I’m taking some in my lunch this week, because even if I’m not the biggest Red Pepper fan, I’m a hummus fan and I’m not about to turn my back on some hummus that’s only 50 calories per serving. That would be sacrilegious. I’m definitely picking up a few containers of the other flavors though: Classic, Cilantra Jalapeno, and Roasted Garlic.
Where to buy:
- Fairway Market
- Bristol Farms
Bonus points for Skinnygirl because I have a coupon for you, too!
If you guys try it, let me know what you think! I’m so eager to try the Roasted Garlic flavor that I might burst.
