Red Wine Wednesday

Wednesday, May 08, 2013

From our happy table to yours...

So they say a glass of red wine a day is good for you so we are taking full advantage of this today, after all it is Wine Wednesday.  We eat healthy meals all the time and are very aware of the calories we are putting into our bodies, after all it really is just a friendly game of math!  We are currently in the works of coming up with an I Don't Go to the Gym Meal Plan and are SO excited to share this with you!  We will be posting our favorite 100 calorie snacks and wines in the coming months that we will be incorporating into our meal plan.  This way we will all know where to turn when we have leftover calories and isn't a glass of red wine the perfect way to end the evening??

Studies show that antioxidants in red wine, called flavonoids, can help reduce the risk of heart disease and even cancer.  Well isn't that the best news you've ever heard ;)  For these reasons and more we are happy to say we are indulging in a glass tonight and go ahead and join us!


We love a good wine but are not ones to spend tons of money on a bottle.  Everyone we post will be taste bud approved and under 15 dollars!  Guess that means a lot of happy tasting for us ;)  This Apothic Red is a lovely blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Zinfandel.  This full bodied red has dark fruity flavors of black cherry with hints of spice and vanilla  We love this wine and definitely recommend you give this a try!  We picked this bottle up for 11.99 and it's worth every penny :)

It's a shame they don't post calorie counts on the bottle, but after some googling we found that a 5 oz glass of Apothic Red has 122 calories!  That's not too bad if you ask us and totally worth it every now and then!  

Happy Wine Wednesday :)

  1. I've heard nothing but good things about this wine and I STILL haven't bought it. Such a slacker.

  3. I am going to pick this up next time. My grandmother loves it too. On my last trip to the wine store, the pretty "Flip Flop" brand wines caught me off guard, and I had to try them! :) The pinot grigio was my favorite, but the sweet red was good and only $5.99 ;)

  5. I love this red - it's one of my stand-by best bets. The Commissary on the air station down here will not infrequently have it on sale for 9.95, which never fails to convince me to throw a bottle in my basket, no matter what else I already have :)
