Prosciutto Wrapped Grilled Figs- Recipe

This recipe is one of my favorites to make during the summer. It’s everything you want in a few bites. Salty, sweet, bitter, sour. All you need are some good figs, honey, prosciutto, balsamic vinegar and pepper. Read more down below to find out how to make this super easy yet delicious summer dish. Enjoy!

  1. Wash your figs lightly and then cut them in half, longways.
  2. Brush the inside of the halves with a little bit of honey, just enough to cover it all.
  3. Put the figs in a pan with a little bit of butter and cook on medium for about 8 minutes, or until the honey begins to caramelize.
  4. Once the figs are cooked, let them cool for about 10 minutes then wrap each half in one piece of prosciutto.
  5. Right before serving, drizzle a tad of balsamic and crack a bit of pepper over the top and your summer appetizer is all good to go.

My Newest Adventure- The Beach Bum Lifestyle Program

For those of you who follow me on Instagram (@swimeatlove), I announced a couple of weeks ago that I had joined the Beach Bum Lifestyle Program team as their newest ambassador. After discovering their Instagram account and website, I immediately fell in love. I was amazed at how similar their goals and passions are to mine. The BB Program isn’t a crash course on dieting or a 10 day fix to get your ideal body, but it truly is a community of amazing, inspiring ladies who are all striving to become the best versions of themselves they can possible be.

The Beach Bum Mission:

“You’ve tried every cleanse, fitness, and nutrition program out there and have come up short in being able to maintain your results. Look no further babe, we’ve got you covered! We’re here to provide you with the tools you need to feel and look your best for life! Re-energize, get fit, show yourself so much love, and stay accountable… in a way that feels easy, and oh-so-good!
This program encompasses the nutrition, beauty, friendship, inspiration, joy, and all of the things that give you an unmistakable glow!”

Looking to take what I do to the next level, I thought that joining the team would be the perfect next step. With my goal to inspire and motivate as many people as possible to live a happier and healthier life, I felt that Beach Bum gave me the perfect platform to connect with so many more amazing people. As time goes on, I hope working with Beach Bum gives me the platform to reach out and connect with so many different people.

One of the cool parts about this program is their partnership with Usana. Usana makes everything from shakes and supplements, to an amazing skincare line (Celavie). I’ve started on the Beach Bum Kit, consisting of cellsentials (supplements) and their Nutrimeal shakes, along with the Celavie skincare products. I have loved everything about using the products and the way it makes me feel. It’s a great way to supplement the life I am living.

If you are interested in being part of the Beach Bum program/community or are interesting in trying out some of the Usana products, please feel free to reach out to me however you feel comfortable.

#fitgirllife- Eating Clean in College

One of my biggest fears going into college was food. Not necessarily how good it was going to be (though that was something this foodie worried about), but how hard it was going to be to eat healthy. I had heard so much about “freshman 15” and seen so many friends come back from their first year having gained a lot of weight. Once I got to college, I scoped out the food situation and quickly figured out how to eat healthy and clean. I wrote down everything I ate for 3 days, and have it all down below for you to reference. Please keep in mind that on all three of these days, I had 3- 3 1/2 hours of hard workouts, so the calories (though I don’t count them) and quantity may seem a little high. I hope this helps and gives you some ideas about how to eat healthy in college!
