Don’t Drink A Cheeseburger’s Worth Of Calories This Holiday Season!Nov

It’s the holidays, you’re all dolled up for a Saturday night cocktail party, feeling hot and looking good. Everyone’s celebrating, the music is pumping, the cocktails are flowing. Who are you to say no to a free drink? But did you know that little, innocent-looking glass of eggnog packs more calories and fat than one-and-a-quarter Snickers bars? And 21 times the cholesterol. And the toasty Pumpkin Spice Latte you pick up on your way to work the next morning? A Burger King Whopper Jr. would be less damaging to your waistline!
Your well-fitting wardrobe is just one reason to consider making our new seasonal kefir your holiday standby. Lifeway Foods has just launched our first ever seasonal flavor, Cranberry Creme Brulee Kefir. Imagine a blend of rich, creamy vanilla custard, caramelized sugar, and tangy cranberry…but with only 160 calories, 2 grams of fat, and 10mg of cholesterol per serving. And unlike the White Russian or bottle of champagne you’re likely to be offered time and time again, kefir offers 10 live and active cultures to help your immune system stay strong during Swine Flu season.
