Raise Your Glass to Healthy Ideas
When watching portion size or cutting calories, it’s easy to forget that sugary drinks can put as much of a dent in your diet as heavy sides and rich desserts. This holiday season, fill your glass with these Healthy Ideas:
- Ditch fat, not flavor. Instead of regular eggnog that’s packed with fat and calories, opt for eggnog flavored coffee or tea.
- Sip on a guilt-free drink like flavored seltzer or add a splash to your wine or cocktail.
- Cut the cream. Sprinkle hot chocolate with cinnamon and shaved chocolate instead of whipped cream. You’ll save 100 calories or more!
Regardless of the beverage you choose, sip slowly and try to be aware of how many calories you’re drinking. Minimize your total intake by always alternating high-calorie cocktails with a large glass of water.
