If left to my devices, I would drink wine with most meals. Growing up in a family that celebrated everything, it’s pretty much part of my DNA. A good glass of wine can easily lead to 3, so for the Clean 19 challenge, I’m cutting out this calorically loaded treat, and opting for an evening spritzer instead. Attached are a couple recipes that can help you wine lovers wind down without the vino!
