Tips for Smart Summer Travel

Be cocktail conscious.

Vacation often means being liberal on the alcohol. But before one fruity drink becomes several sugarific calorie-bombs (and the not-so-healthy snacks that come along with it), decide to sip smart instead. Stick to low-calorie options whenever possible (unless you decide to make it your daily splurge). A glass of wine or champagne comes to about 120 calories. A light beer or a shot of liquor mixed with club soda and a splash of fruit juice are each about 100 calories.

If you’re playing bartender in your own backyard give my Berkshire Iced Tea or Skinny Piña Colada a try.
