When we consider getting in-shape and healthy, most of us focus on eating and exercising. While paying attention to what we eat, (single ingredient, pasture-raised, local, organic and wild food), and being involved in healthy, fun movement, (dancing, skiing, biking, running, walking in nature, yoga, bowling, tennis, rowing, kickball, gardening, etc.), are both important for great health and body reshaping, the buck doesn’t stop there.
Frequently, we forget to look at what we drink. I’m referring to both alcoholic as well as non-alcoholic beverages. So much of what we guzzle down is loaded with sugar, carbs and high, empty calories. (Empty calories, such as those in alcohol and sugar, offer no nutritional benefit and cause us to get fat.)
This article looks at certain alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages and their impact on us. My intention is to raise awareness of the sugar content in these beverages. Such knowledge will hopefully lead to a new drinking mindfulness as well as improved drinking options. My wish is for this information to support and assist in your quest for optimal health and body.
