Ways to do a Chinese New Year Detox & Still Drink Wine!
Chinese New Year is a time of indulgence. There are few points on how wine can actually help out a healthy and start of the year lifestyle.
i. Know your wine’s calories
Wine contains calories and knowing how many are in your glass could help you drink healthier. High alcohol generally also means high calories and sugar. However, wine has less calories than beer.
ii. Know your food
For serious wine drinkers, the perfect pairings will be cheese and red meat, fish and seafood. This will pose diet problems!!! Try pairing your whites and sparkling with bites of fresh fruit instead, or your reds with richly seasoned grilled vegetables.
iii. Size Matter
At least when it comes to servings. One way to get yourself drinking a more moderate amount of wine is to stop filling the glass as far as it will go and start going for a standard pour, which for the record is around 5oz/15cl or around a fifth of the bottle.
iv. Don’t drink before you eat
Drinking wine before a meal will only serve to increase to your appetite and lead to the kind of overindulgence you’re trying to avoid. Start drinking with your meal and you won’t have the same problem.
v. Drink Water
Health Benefits of Alcohol
