If the glass in your hand contained a highly processed substance with 30 grams of sugary carbohydrates PER CUP, would you put it down and walk away? Unfortunately, that’s exactly what store-bought eggnog contains. It is one of many lethal holiday treats that desperately need transformation to Keto Holiday Favorites.
And what’s more, it’s not just regular sugar sweetening your commercial eggnog. Instead, it’s cheap, harmful high fructose corn syrup along with artificial flavors. This list is worth checking twice and putting down.
