There’s an elephant in the room, and of course, he’s holding a yellow hammer…
ALCOHOL HAS CALORIES. Sorry. There’s no way around it.
However, there are ways in which you can intake less of the sugar, carbs, and calories when drinking. I think the first step creating a healthy lifestyle, is making a conscious effort to try and create better eating and drinking habits. I’m excited to share a new low sugar wine brand with you, and a healthy homemade pizza recipe that will be perfect to serve at your next girls night!
Wine really gets to flowing when my girlfriends and I get together, and with bikini season upon us, I’m really trying to make better choices, even if they are small ones.

Low Sugar Wine Brands
By now, I’m sure you’ve heard of SkinnyGirl cocktails and wines. I have tried a few of their low sugar products, and was not impressed. The housewife super-fan inside of me hates to admit this (I still love you Bethenny Frankel), but there are better options out there for low calorie wines with less sugar, and fewer carbs. See below for how many calories are in SkinnyGirl wines compared to FitVine wines
FitVine Wine Calories, Sugars and Carbs– 95 calories or less, 3.5 grams of carbohydrates or less, and 0.2 grams of sugar per 5 oz glass
SkinnyGirl Wine Calories and Carbs – 100 calories, 5g of carbohydrates per 5 oz. glass
An average glass of wine has about 128 calories, and 5 or less carbs per 5 ounce pour, according to the USDA.
Like us, FitVine Wine company is passionate about fitness, wellness and nutrition, but they also love their wine! Looking good and drinking well are not mutually exclusive. Their products are gluten-free and vegan friendly, so you can feel good about what you’re putting into your body.
Have you ever wondered why wine hangovers are so bad? Apparently wine hangovers have a lot to do with the sulfites and tannins the wine contains. FitVine’s proprietary process is able to extract more tannins and sulfites than your average bottle of wine, so this healthy wine brand may actually help prevent that gnarly wine hangover, while cutting down on calories and sugar!
