Eat This Instead Regular Vs. Vegan Egg Nog

December 15, 2008

To cut calories on your eggnog, consider taking the "egg" out - and going for the vegan version. Half a cup of Silk Soymilk Natural Nog has fewer than half the calories of Southern Comfort Vanilla Spice Egg Nog, and also saves you 7 grams fat, 5 grams saturated fat and 15 grams carbohydrate. (That's before you add any hooch.)
