Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave may be an accountability coach with super-strict rules for herself and her clients, but that doesn't mean that The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills pal doesn't know how to let loose — within reason, of course. For example, you won't find her boozing it up on giant, sugary, rainbow-colored cocktails when she's on vacation somewhere nice and warm, but she makes it work with a fun substitute that won't derail all of her usual hard work.
"My favorite tropical drink — I go with a prosecco with just a splash of orange juice, just because I think it's yummy," she told The Feast in the above video.
She finds her go-to beverage makes her feel good instead of, well, the opposite.
"What I try to steer clear from is the piña colada, the strawberry daiquiri, the things that are filled with sugar, and then kind of make me feel full and tired, where this one, like, 'Whew!! Let’s go!'"
Teddi is definitely pro-fun, especially when you're taking a big break like a vacation.
"Really, if you’re going to be drinking, its all about balance," she said. "So drink what you love drinking, exercise, drink a lot of water, have some fun. When you’re on a trip — do you. But have some balance. If you’re going to drink, don't have dessert."
That's a compromise we can (maybe) accept.
