Alcohol: To Buzz or not to Buzz
Well, first off, I am a VERY expensive drunk, Seriously! When I was younger…it took me many, many drinks to get that “feel good” feeling. Since I have NEVER liked drinking my calories…I never became much of a drinker.
As I’ve gotten older though, I have learned to love a glass of red wine with dinner. Granted, this is maybe only once a week but I do enjoy the relaxing feeling it gives me. Remember, I have teenagers!
Now I say, “I’ve learned” because I did not like red wine at first…I had to acquire that taste but I did so because I knew it was the healthiest choice out there and I now really enjoy trying new blends and names. It’s actually very fun to visit a winery and do a tasting with someone special.
The reason why red wine is the healthier choice is because it contains resveratrol. This is the key ingredient in that helps prevent damage to blood vessels, reduces “bad” cholesterol and prevents blood clots. Sound beneficial to me!!
Just like anything else out there…moderation, moderation, moderation AND if you are going to drink, why not make it something that could help your heart!
