Low-calorie holiday drink: Mulled wine



Hey ya’ll!

We all love a little holiday ‘spirit,’ #amiright.

The kcals, though – they do add up. Yes, liquids count. #hipsdontlie.

Here is a recipe from a group I discovered called Tops. It’s a nonprofit weight loss club that’s been around since 1948. Never heard of it. Probably because it’s just so darn sensible and non-extreme.

With permission from the reasonable people of Tops, here is a tasty recipe for mulled wine, a spirit that comes in at 70 calories a serving.

Here’s the recipe. Try it, Pin it, and tell me if you like it. I’m going to give it a go this weekend.

We’re doing the Healthy 65. It’s a 65-day wellness challenge. Participants are encouraged to pick a simple goal and keep it up from Nov. 30, 2015 through Groundhog Day, Feb. 2.

Share your healthy effort by using the hashtag #healthy65 on Twitter or Instagram.

Make sure to look for Healthy 65 posts on NewsOK.com, too, in a special spot on the sidebar at the right side of the page.

What will your goal be?

Mine is strength – physical and mental. Translation: weights and yoga.

I started the Healthy 65 to help her son Eli stay well. He has a chronic and life-threatening lung illness called cystic fibrosis. Children have a hard time pronouncing the disease and sometimes call it “65 roses.” This blog documents my family’s experiences raising a child with CF.
