Fixation Friday

I would like to present my new weekly update of things I’m obsessed with….I’m obsessed with a lot of stuff, so this might turn into a three-part weekly series.

This week- Cheribundi

The beginning of the obsession: Amidst the chaos of the Rock N’ Roll Las Vegas Marathon Expo, there was one place of refuge…the Cheribundi booth. I typically don’t try drinks out expos, something about germs and too many people grabbing at the tiny cups, but when I saw this fresh cherry drink I had to stop. Thank God I did, because even as I was clubbing it up at the Wynn the next night, I caught myself dreaming about the cherry goodness of the Cheribundi drink.

Cheribundi tastes like a bundle of cherries (hence the name) freshly squeezed in your mouth. It’s tart, yet sweet, and satisfies any sugar cravings you are having. As soon as I got back to the Valley of the Sun, I scoured the valley searching for the drink with no success. I finally broke down and ordered a case off the Cheribundi website to satisfy my cravings.


The obsession still continues to this day. I buy these on a regular basis, have sent cases to friends, and wake up in the middle of the night for a quick chug of cherry goodness. I even made martinis with Cheribundi during Christmas time!



Product Details: 

  • Five different flavors (Regular, Skinny Version, Ginger, Chocolate, and Protein spiked)
  • The regular Cheribundi is a mixture of pressed cherries and apple juice (not from concentrate). So it’s 100% juice!


  • The skinny version is 65% juice with water and stevia included.


  • There are approximately 50 cherries per 8 fluid ounces in the regular Cheribundi.
  • Move over pomegranate, Cherry is the next super fruit.  Research shows that cherries can help you recover from exercise faster, sleep better, have anti-inflammatory benefits, can reduce pain from arthritis, and are heart health. Don’t believe me? Click here to read more about cherries.
  • Are available at Sprouts, Safeway, Whole Foods, and other local vendors. I finally have found this ruby gems at my local Safeway for $2.50 a bottle (occasionally on sale for $1).

Question – What are you obsessed with right now?


I Want to Suck Your Blood


To kick start day one of getting Phylli back into Phyllin’ Phat shape, I decided to juice it up. Today’s juice – True Blood

My non-blood juice concoction consists of apples and blood-red beets. Beets are CRAZY good for you, here some of their benefits:

  • Loaded with antioxidants
  • Studies have found beets are beneficial in lowering cholesterol and blood pressure.
  • Cancer fighter! Lots of research on how beets can prevent some cancers
  • Betaine, found in beets, help cleanse the liver of wastes and can prevent chemical-induce liver cancer. Now pour me another Gin and Tonic.
  • In conjunction with carrots and cucumbers, studies have found beets can cleanse the kidney of kidney stones.
  • Loaded with iron, beets can help with anemia


Step 1: Don cape, talk in bad Mississippi Bayou accent, and apply extra glittery lotion to exposed skin.

Step 2: Use Juicer or Blender to juice 2 beets and 2 Granny Smith Apples (this makes about two servings of juice).



Step 3: Pour juice in container and hit it with a splash of fresh squeezed lemon juice.



Step 4: Put in fake vampire teeth, pour some of the juice on your fingers, scream bloody murder, and freak out your boyfriend. Smile

Step 5: Taste!! I’ve never had beets before, their appearance has always offended me, but this juice is pretty darn good! I’m not sure if beets are suppose to taste like dirt, but before the added apples and lemon juice it tasted like I was eating red stained mud water (mmmm…makes you want to try it, right!)
