I’d always had a somewhat tumultuous relationship with carbs. We’d been on-again-off-again for years: When I tried cutting them out completely, I felt cranky, weak, and tired. When I ate too many, I felt sleepy, bloated, and generally not-so-well. Until a trip to Australia and a daily habit of scrambled eggs on thick slices of sourdough bread changed everything.
Frozen cocktails scream summertime almost as much as ice cream. One thing both have in common? They’re often loaded with sugar. The good news is low-sugar versions of your favorite frozen cocktails exist.
Put down the wine (or beer or cocktail). And pick up one of these healthful and delightful afternoon drinks instead. These fruity, fizzy beverages with benefits are just the thing for when it’s too late for coffee, but too early for booze.
