Eggnog: Love It or Leave It?

The season of eggnog comes but once a year, which you will probably think is a good thing once you learn the nutritional stats on this holiday beverage. One cup of eggnog contains about 350 calories along with 11 grams of saturated fat. The hearty drink does provide a hefty dose of protein, about nine grams.

Aside from being a calorie bomb, there are food safety issues with this form of holiday cheer. Although commercial varieties of eggnog are pasteurized, homemade versions are usually made with raw eggs, which presents the possibility of contamination from salmonella. The good news is that fortifying your eggnog with alcohol can decrease the risk of food poisoning

With all this in mind, I am curious how you feel about eggnog.
