Cheers to those low-calorie wines we all need right now
Updated: Apr 14
Admit it. You are drinking more.
It’s ok, I am too. I’ve discovered that a glass of chardonnay pairs well with Dr. Phil at 3 p.m. every day.
I’ve also discovered that all those extra calories from my additional wine and snack consumption can really add up.
(My scale shows I’ve gained four pounds since quarantine began.)
I have tried to back off on the eating and drinking, but frankly, I’m just not strong enough.
So aside from increasing my morning walks (and a few sit ups this morning), I’m beginning to lean on my new favorite thing: Low-calorie wine.
And the best part? They’re actually pretty good.
Not 5-star-restaurant-good, but it’s-a-Monday-and-I-can’t-leave-the-house-kind-of-good.
You get my drift?
FitVine comes in tons of variations: Cabernet Sauvignon, Rose, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Pinot Grigio, Prosecco, Chenin Blanc and Chardonnay.
The price point isn’t bad either.
A bottle will set you back about $16-20.
Skinnygirl sells Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, a California Red Blend, Moscato, Pinot Grigio and a California White Blend for about $10-$13 per bottle.
Wondering how the calories stack up against the competition? Take a look at this:
5-ounce glass of FitVine chardonnay – 95 calories.
5-ounce glass of SkinnyGirl chardonnay – 100 calories.
5-ounce glass of Kendall Jackson chardonnay – 140 calories.
See what I mean? You can save about 40 calories per glass by drinking these low-calorie wines, and who doesn’t love that?
If you enjoy wine as much as I do, give these labels a try. You won’t be sorry.
But hey, I gotta run. Phil’s about to come on TV.
Tell me about your favorite wine!
