What are all of you going to drink this weekend? Will it be a glass of Wine, a Beer, a mixed drink perhaps? All of us like to unwind when it comes to the weekend. Alcoholic beverages tend to be at the top of the list after a hard work week. What if you’re trying to cut calories on your new diet and find it challenging in a social setting? I mean who wants to be left out when it comes to hosting a party at your own house! I was speaking to a friend not too long ago who was trying to clean up her diet. I asked her what she thought to be her most difficult obstacle in preventing success with her health. She mentioned that her and her husband have the neighbors over often and a lot of the women easily drink at least a bottle of wine in one night on their own. I couldn’t believe it when she told me. I would literally be under the table if I drank that much wine. My body would also pay for it the rest of the week by feeling fatigued and bloated. Who wants to feel like that?
We all know there’s a ton of calories in alcoholic beverages. Most people don’t stop at just one drink either. One glass of wine can carry up to 225 calories depending on the size of the glass. Mixed drinks can have 3 times as much and are loaded with sugar and chemicals. So what can you do to still be the life of the party and not seem like a big prude? I have a trick for you…..
You can make everyone think you’re drinking by making yourself Jaime’s famous Watertini! I believe a lot of eating and drinking is social, and half the time we really don’t want to be drinking what we’re drinking. It’s all about the presentation too.
Grab yourself a really cool Wine Glass, or Martini Glass… and write down the simple ingredients below. Start saving yourself some calories now. If you consumed 3 glasses of wine every weekend for two months…..that’s almost 3,000 calories a month….that’s almost 2 pounds of added weight in 8 weeks. I’m not even counting how much it’s causing your Liver to slow down either. Think about that.
1 small glass of Evian Water
1/2 teaspoon of Raw Organic Honey
1 1/2 of fresh Organic Mint chopped or whole
1/2 Organic Lime squeezed
Mint is an herb that you can purchase in your produce section of your grocery store. Mint actually promotes healthy digestion and weight loss. It also can freshen your breath. The Organic Raw Honey is loaded with enzymes and minerals. Fresh Organic Lime also helps with digestion, urinary disorders and ulcers.
There you have it my friends. Try it out and see how your night goes. I bet your skin will look better, your waistline will be trimmer and your budget will be tighter with a WATERTINI!
