Holiday “Think Your Drink”
Holiday festivities are not just about good food, friends and family.
You probably have at least one favorite beverage that you associate
with holiday tradition. For a healthier holiday, be aware that the fat and
calories in holiday drinks can add up just as fast as that in cookies and pie.
Think about how you can enjoy holiday drinks in a healthier way:
Look for drinks labeled “light” or “diet”.
Choose a smaller size of your favorite high-calorie drink.
Choose clear over creamy; a glass of sparkling grape juice over eggnog.
Ordering up a holiday drink? Skip the whip cream and choose skim milk.
Choose wine or champagne glasses instead of large drinking glasses; 8 ounces will
seem like more in these glasses than in a standard 12-ounce drinking glass.
If you’ve ever wondered just what’s in those delicious holiday drinks, take a look at these
popular non-alcoholic examples. Enjoy your favorites in moderation!
