Bubbles? Yes, bubbles!
Girls, we should drink more bubbles! I am not talking about sodas or beer of course…I am talking about Champagne, Cremants, Prosecco, Asti, Cava, Sekt, Vinho Verde, Cap Classique, etc… The main reason that I share this with you is because of the number of calories in each drink. Let me clarify something first: No, I am not a nutritionist and do not understand much about that. What I have been researching is for my own drinking enjoyment and it was all done online. Since March of 2014, I have been working out 4 days a week and drinking once or twice a week. However, when I go out and have 2 drinks, I want to be wise about it and try to gain as “less” weight as possible since I enjoy going out with my friends! This post is for people that like drinking…if you don’t drink do not read this, as I am NOT encouraging you to start now. For some of you that enjoy an adult beverage from time to time, here are my nutritional fact discoveries:
Most draft beers = over 140 Calories*
Vodka Tonic = 169 Calories*
1 Glass of Red Wine = 129 Calories*
1 Glass of white wine = 121 Calories*
1 Glass of Champagne = 87 Calories*
1 Glass of Prosecco = 69 Calories*
My drink of choice has always been and will always be red wine, however, after learning more about the calories difference and living in Florida (where is always steaming hot ) I have been liking Prosecco a LOT more! The 3 main reasons are: It is a little sweeter than Champagne, it is more affordable and has fewer calories = win, win, win in my book! A glass of Prosecco is almost the same price as a glass of wine and it is available at most restaurants.
Here is a list of some Proseccos available at most supermarkets.
