Cheers! Healthy Holiday Drinks That Get In The Spirit

Cheers! Healthy Holiday Drinks That Get In The Spirit | Business Tips | Scoop.it
By Kerri Glassman for U.S News Health

The holiday season is in full swing, and we want to indulge! The holiday season is in full swing, and we want to indulge! Many of us look for healthy ways to satisfy our cravings for traditional pumpkin pie and gravy-laden mashed potatoes. But the holidays aren't just about what's on our plate. They are also about what's in our cup! (And no, I'm not just talking about alcohol).

The dry winter weather makes us more susceptible to dehydration, so it's important that we remember to drink enough fluids. Why not hydrate in the holiday spirit by indulging in these traditional favorites: hot chocolate, mulled cider, and chai tea. These drinks are typically high in calories and sugar, but I've provided you with recipes that quench your desires (without being too devilish). Enjoy these treats whether you are solo, hosting a soiree, or having an intimate shindig!

Stay warm this winter and be confident and conscious about your indulgences!

Chai Latte For One
Vanilla chai tea bag

1/2 cup boiling water

1/2 cup steamed, low-fat milk

1/2 teaspoon agave

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Steep tea bag in boiling water for two to three minutes.
Stir in milk and agave.
Sprinkle nutmeg.
Hot Chocolate for Four
4 cups low-fat milk

1 teaspoon ground ginger

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

7 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped (about 7 squares)
Combine milk, ginger, and cinnamon in a saucepan over medium-low heat until almost boiling.
Add chocolate, stirring until fully melted.
Whisk until frothy, and serve immediately.

Mulled Cider For Many
1 pear, not too soft

1 orange

1 to 2 tablespoons whole cloves

1 lemon

3 to 5 whole allspice berries

3 to 5 inches peeled, fresh ginger root, cut into 1-inch pieces

1 medium stick of cinnamon

2 to 3 gallons apple cide
r
Pour cider into a heavy pot, and bring it to a simmer.
Stud pear and orange with cloves.
Peel large pieces of rind from the lemon, and twist each piece to release the lemon oil.
Place fruits and spices in your slow cooker, pour a gallon of cider over them, and heat on high heat for a few hours.

Your 2017 Marketing To-Do List | Business Tips | Scoop.it

Now that we're well into 2017, are you checking items off your marketing to-do list? Or, like many of us procrastinators, do you have a to-do list that consists of just one item: "Make 2017 marketing to-do list"?


If the latter is the case, IBM has you covered.


The software company has put together an infographic guide to help marketers prioritize their efforts this year, and it also explains the benefits that each idea can have on your program.


For example, stories are up to 22 times more memorable than facts or figures alone, the infographic claims, and it gives tips on how to captivate your audience with better stories this year....

Key marketing and data technology opportunities and challenges for 2017 | C-Suite

Key marketing and data technology opportunities and challenges for 2017 | C-Suite | Business Tips | Scoop.it
1. Real-time decision making finally gets real
Many organisations looked into or acquired technology to facilitate real-time when it first emerged as a leading trend, but it is only now that many are actually practically applying it. 

2. Taking steps towards cognitive computing
The next few years will see organisations start to get to grips with what cognitive computing can offer. While there is much fascination with the potential for cognitive, there is still an element of nervousness from many organisations, especially when it comes to A.I. This is not unfounded, as A.I. has not yet reached the point where it can run without careful human monitoring. 

3. The growing need for data management and governance

4. Getting your digital estate in order
Organisations are still failing to fully understand their digital estates and the systems they already have. Many are fairly digitally mature, with estates that have grown at a rapid pace. Due to the particularly high turn-over in senior marketing roles, coupled with increasing marketing technology spend, businesses are likely to have multiple systems in place, which are not being utilised or integrated properly.
