Did you know that doctors listen to their patients for an average of just 11 seconds before interrupting them? If you were dealing with pain or an ailment for weeks, is 11 seconds enough time to explain your symptoms and express your concerns? Of course not! There are huge disparities in Black and Brown women’s healthcare and we knew this was an important topic to discuss.
What We’re Sipping On This Episode:
Simi – Sauvignon Blanc – We’ve been adding more whites to our list and this week we’re trying another Sauvignon Blanc. We hadn’t heard of this brand before but picked it out together. Described as “fresh, bright, and crisp; the wine opens with complex aromas of lime zest, Meyer lemon, pink grapefruit, lemongrass, freshly cut hay, honeysuckle, and a hint of wet stone. Fresh and forward, zesty flavors of grapefruit and citrus with subtle herbal notes meld beautifully with a vivid acidity.” Shara was immediately a fan while Sasha wasn’t sure how she felt about it. We both agreed that it was an easy-drinking wine and was almost like drinking juice. While Sasha didn’t taste the citrus fruit, she did taste the acidity of the wine. It’s of course, Sasha and Shara approved at 13.5% ABV.
