Well loves it’s been about 4 months and 23 days since my last post. Life has been hectic these past couple of months, and I’ve been super busy. However, I have not forgotten about you, and what better day to jump back in the swing of things than National Drink Wine Day! This post is for all my readers across the nations who are fellow wine lovers. Cheers to celebrating a holiday where we do what we do every day anyway!
So, to celebrate I’m going to give you 4 Good Reasons You Should Enjoy A Glass Of Wine At Some Point Today. There is nothing like kicking back after a hard day (or any day) and enjoying a nice glass (or two or three) of your favorite wine. Maybe you will even enjoy a glass of wine whilst watching a documentary such as Somm or Red Obsession (Thank you Netflix).
Now, if you do not partake for you own reasons that is your choice. I can’t say I understand it, but hey… to each his own. I would be remiss if I did not give you some facts about the benefits of drinking wine on this wonderful day of celebration. With that being said, lets get into these 4 reasons you should enjoy a glass of wine at some point today.
Reason #1. Be Merry
In September 2015, Medical News Today released an article on the benefits of wine consumption in moderation. One benefit they noted was from a study that determined that, men and women who consume two to seven glasses of wine per week were less likely to suffer from depression. Yes, you read that right, Two to seven glasses. Happy sipping!
Reason #2. For Your Heart
According to Web MD, wine drinkers as a group, have a significantly lower mortality from cardiovascular disease, and cancer. I’ll toast to that!
Reason #3. For Your Skin
Red wine is full of antioxidants. Antioxidants are known for their anti aging properties, and fighting free radicals in order to keep your skin looking younger. Cheers Beautiful!
Reason #4. For Weight Loss
Go ahead and read that again. Yes, for weight loss! Can you believe it? As if wine couldn’t get any better, it also helps you loose weight! Researcher from The University of Alberta in Canada discovered, red wine has a natural compound called resveratrol. Resveratrol is proven to show the same results as extensive endurance exercise training. In essence drinking a glass of red wine is like spending an hour at the gym. I’ll take the entire bottle please, thanks!
You know, I do not discriminate with my wine. I enjoy red, white, rose, sparkling, or dessert. Now don’t get all wine snob on me. I have tried my fair share of wines, but I’m not going to pretend I’m a certified Sommelier. The world of wine is so big; my list of experiences would look rather small compared to it. Some of the wines I’ve enjoyed include: Merlot, Malbec, Resling, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Zinfendel, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Moscato, Moscato d’Asti, Spumante, Brut, and my latest Gewurtztraminer. I should not forget Honey Meade as an honorable mention. Here is a montage of my friends and I enjoying this divine beverage over the years. I threw a beer in there for fun sake.
Have I convinced you to have a glass today? If so, what wine will you have? I want to hear from you in the comments Loves. Cheers!
