Can you believe it’s almost 2011?
It’s time to start a new tradition. Something fun and healthy at the same time.
Some of you are already doing it, since the Pill Advised audience is some of the most health-conscious people around.
So what’s the new tradition?
Toasting the New Year with sparkling apple cider. Not only is it festive, but the latest research points to the benefits of juice for health, including orange, apple, cranberry, pomegranate and more.
It’s something the Galland family enjoys, and we wanted to share it with you, to celebrate the one year anniversary of blogging at Pill Advised.
We write a lot about pills such as vitamins, common over the counter medications, and prescriptions. But we also cover nutrition, because what you eat and drink can interact with what you are taking.
Which brings us to alcohol, which interacts badly with numerous medications.
In case you missed it, we point out a few examples of how alcohol interacts with drugs in our article Bad Holiday Food and Drug Combinations.
So to be able to toast the New Year without alcohol is a great solution.
A family favorite is Martinelli’s a company that has been around since 1868 and makes a flavorful sparkling apple cider.
Trader Joe’s also carries a very nice sparkling apple cider, which I just taste-tested and found crisp, lightly sweet and satisfying.
Have a Happy Healthy New Year!
