eggnog, white, red, Christmas, drinkI'm looking for justification to indulge in some eggnog.

One cup means 342 calories and 21 grams of sugar--bam, just like that. And so far, no major nutritional perks. The best it can do is give 33% of the calcium I need in a day. Not bad... not great.

Sure, Silk makes dairy free Soy Nog at 90 calories and 2 grams of fat, but all the descriptions I read go on and on about how light and fresh it tastes. That doesn't sound like eggnog at all. I dig soy, but as it's own drink. It doesn't work for me as a substitute.

Nope, I think there is no justification for drinking what is basically liquid custard. This is going to have to be one of those 'just because I wanna' decisions. It may result in fewer solids and more time at the gym, but it's cold, cruddy, and gray outside.

Eggnog must be had!

So, I found a video that shows a simple recipe (warning, it's cheesy). That's right, I have no intention of leaving home for this.
