Many of us (myself included) are getting ready to board planes, trains, or automobiles and head off for the holidays. Inevitably we will eat far too many sweets (we all know I do!), probably catch a cold from traveling, and be in much need of a warm soothing drink.
As a treat to your waste line this holiday season, I (at the behest of Sweet'N Low) have come up with a lower cal and low sugar hot toddy! Normally this recipe would have one tablespoons of honey but at 60 calories and 16 grams of sugar it's not exactly a friend to a New Years resolutions! Most hot toddies will run you 175 calories and 16 grams of sugar but with just with a small switch of liquors and replacing honey with a packet of Sweet'N Low we're now down to 110 calories and just 6 grams of sugar! Just think: you have to do 5 sit ups to burn 1 calorie, so that small switch saves you the 325 sit ups it would take to burn it off!
Happy holidays and happy travels!
