Memorial Day is one of my favorite holidays, not only because America remembers the heroes who have served our country, but because it's a tradition that I spend it with my family. The weekend also kicks summer into high gear, and that calls for refreshing, fruity drinks! My fam gets together to make good food, drink, and have a good time!
Many of us like to partake in a few celebratory drinks to ring in the New Year, but hate the idea of spending New Year's Day nursing a hangover. According to a recent study released by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, the U.S. adult population consumes on average about 100 calories from alcohol per day. Though it can be particularly challenging to abstain from alcohol during the holidays, what better way to start out the New Year than keeping off those unwanted pounds. It all adds up! These mocktails are perfect for those who are pregnant this holiday season, yet still want to partake in bubbly.
Instead of reaching for the sugary treat when a sugar craving arrives, try drinking your dessert!
No, I am not referring to those drinkable “cookies and cream” milkshakes, or trying to pulverize a cheesecake in a blender so it can be drank through a straw; rather I am alluding to drinking coffee, or tea as an alternative to the normal dessert.
Yes, I am suggesting going to the coffee shop, instead of the ice cream shop, or reaching for the French roast at home instead of the French Vanilla.
I am very excited to say that this month, like millions of other folks, I am headed off to a warm locale. My plan for spring break involves a bathing suit, a good beach read, and my fair share of fruity cocktails. And as much as I love indulging on vacation, the empty calories in those cocktails can put a real hitch in my wellness journey. Here are a few of my favorite low-cal cocktails so we can all enjoy, without packing in the calories. Happy spring break!
