David Kirsch's Recipe For Egg Nog

David Kirsch Indulges Too!

The following post was written by New York-based trainer David Kirsch.

If there's ever a time where we are more susceptible to overindulging, the Christmas to New Year week is one of them! But did you know you can savor something without regretting it?

This is a healthy twist on an old Christmas classic. It delivers all the flavor of the classic eggnog but without the calories, sugar, or fat. In fact, you'll save yourself 100 calories and 6 grams of fat. That's the equivalent of having to do a 25-minute walk to burn off the nog instead of a 45-minute walk.
