Low-Carb Healthified Egg Nog
“Tips For Surviving The Holidays-Avoid These Foods”.
One of the first foods they mentioned? Egg nog
No wonder why people have such a tough time during the holidays-back when I used to follow these types of recommedations, I was miserable!
Oh, I used to do OK for a little while, eating lettuce, low-fat dressing, super-lean chicken and meat (God-forbid any fat in them lol), and topped off with some type of ‘whole grain’ side. Always wondering, why was I so hungry and miserable all the time!
In fact, I rember getting to points (on more than one occasion) where I said “to heck with it-if eating cardboard and lettuce all day was what it would take to be healthy and slim, I’d rather be fat and eat what I want. And trust me, I had my share of eggnog!
Before I give you this recipe, however, it is important you know this; 9.9 times out of 10, most pre-made eggnog is not going to be healthy. But surprisingly, it’s not for the reasons the mainstream nutritional media brings up. The reasons they cite are because of the fat (particularly saturated), and the number of calories in egg nog.
Those cited reasons have absoultely nothing to do with premade eggnog being unhealthy. In fact, saturated fat in the forms of grass-fed butter and coconut oil are not only harmless, but actually very beneficial in a large number of metabolic processes the body needs to live a healthy life.
The real reasons why most egg-nog is unhealthy is the junk it’s made with: insulin-spiking, inflammatory high-fructose corn sweetener, factory-raised nutrient-deficient eggs, and dangerous preservatives.
Believe it or not, it’s very possible to get a delicious taste in eggnog, and simply make it with real food. Food that is designed to actually serve the body instead of damaging it. Yes, there’s plenty of fat in here. And if you’re not yet aware, the right types of fat are extremely healthy. The same types of fat found in this egg nog.
OK-that ends the preaching on my part. Here’s how to do it:
