I just saw a Facebook post from our favorite Italian restaurant… it’s Date Night tonight! What that means is that each couple can share a large appetizer, have soup or salad, an entree, dessert AND a bottle of good wine for only $50! A very small price to pay for such delicious food! BUT what will we pay for in carbs “masquerading” as wine?
Wine Folly tells us
“Wine is low-carb by nature but that doesn’t mean you’re off the hook! Our bodies metabolize alcohol a little differently than other foods.”
They make a solid case, just as I mentioned in my article on Low-Carb Cocktails. Their infographic below helps visualize carb count and you can read more in their “The Reality About Carbs in Wine” article.
When deciding on which beverage to enjoy with dinner it’s good to know what you’re dealing with ahead of time so you can adjust your daily carb count to allow for those extra carbohydrates.
Which is your drink of choice? Is it worth the extra carbs? I’d love to hear with your comment below!
In the meantime, enjoy that dinner out, give take a minute and give this article a thumbs up and ciao for now!
