A tip to get you through the holidays: find low and no calorie food and drink to enjoy so you don’t have a chance to feel deprived.

This is perfect! It’s nice to relax in the evening with a warm cinnamon drink and this tart sweet sipper is both sugar free and delicious! You’ll want to have one of these every night. So good! Make a big pot so everyone can have one. That’s the hallmark of a great post op food – when everyone wants some!
