It’s finally that time of the year again! Everywhere I go smells like pumpkin spice, cinnamon and christmas tree! 🙂
I picked up a box of eggnog, and was surprised by all the unnecessary ingredients in it! I made a mistake of not reading it in the store, before purchase, but unfortunately I didn’t have much choice to select from anyway. I’m not going to write down which brand I’m talking about, I’m sure you guys can figure it out, but here is a visual example I put together for you:
- Milk and Cream
- High Fructose Corn Syrup (???)
- Egg Yolks
- Natural and Artificial Flavors (???)
- Spices (???)
- Carrageenan (WTF???)
- Annatto (Really???)
- Turmeric (But of course…)
And here is a list of ingredients for a home-made, delicious eggnog:
- Vanilla Extract
- Egg Yolks
Here you can many different recipes for a homemade eggnog!
Surprisingly in order to make your own eggnog at home will probably take about 6-10 minutes, and a little wait-time to let it cool off. You can also add some rum if you prefer. I’m just so surprised! I mean.. is it really that necessary to add all that extra crap into our food? Remember, every time you buy something, you are voting for that product! Read all the labels, learn which brands are trust worthy and have a happy, long and healthy life! Plus think about your children, or grandkids! They also deserve a healthy life!
Thank you for reading! xo
