Do yourself a favour and forget the biscuits
ON THE GRAPEVINE
IF you have given up alcohol for January, spare a thought for the lamb chop, the casserole and the strict dieter’s lettuce leaf which really need a glass of wine to lift the flavours on the plate. Why not restrict yourself to a single glass (if you must) to prove you are in control of your alcohol intake while still allowing your tastebuds a treat. Push the cork back in and enjoy the rest over the next couple of days. Remember, a small glass of wine has about the same number of calories as two boring chocolate biscuits. There is no competition.
