Today is Cinco De Mayo and just because you have made your health a priority does not mean your social life has to become extinct.
Here is some great advice on how to drink responsibly and not feel like you have completely sabotaged your goals in the process.
I personally have used these tips when going out, and I never feel hungover, too drunk, or unhealthy. So try it out for yourself, and feel what a difference tequila and soda water make!
# 1 Act like a Fine Wine: – red wine in particular. Because of antioxidants such as resveratrol, which can help prevent damage to blood vessels, lower “bad” cholesterol, and prevent blood clots, when consumed in moderation, red wine is often considered to be a healthy alcoholic option!
A tip I like to use it drink a glass of water before I order and after I finish my glass. Now I am drinking two to three glasses of water for every 1 glass of wine and keeping my body hydrated.
#2 Add Soda Water and Lime to Tequila – This has a low sugar content, very refreshing, and keeps you hydrated and satisfied! This is a Fit Chic Margarita that will leave you feeling festive not foggy.
# 3 Avoid Beers and Stick to Low Sugar Ciders – Beer is made from wheat, barley, and hops which inflames us, bloats us, and gives us a gut that isn’t healthy for us. Try Cider Beers which are fermented beer from apples and or pears.
Watch out for Cider Beers that are high sugar content and stick to the following brands below: Crispin Cider
# 4 Stick to clear booze and add a splash– like vodka (derived from potatoes), or bacardi (white rum),. I love the Bacardi O and soda water with fresh oranges. You can do lemon vodka and fresh lemons with water or soda water. You can also tell your bartender to make a vodka soda water and add a splash of cranberry. Now you are getting the cranberry taste without the loaded sugars and calories.
Also the key is to drink earlier in the day that way by 9,10 o’clock you will be ready for bed, just when your body and mind are ready for bed too. The more sleep that you get, the better your body will feel!
So try it out for yourself, and feel what a difference tequila and soda water make!
Happy Cinco De Drinko!!!
