Spiced Cider

Whether you're celebrating the holidays or just cozying up with a mug, you can’t go wrong with the comforting taste and wonderful aroma of spiced cider. This is a great alternative to hot chocolate with a fraction of the phosphorus and sodium. If carbs are a concern, you can look for apple cider-flavored powder mixes that are low in carbs and are also lower in phosphorus, potassium, and sodium.
