Alcohol during lunch sounds like a bad idea but wine is an enjoyable addition to your lunch meal. It tastes good and relaxes you, but it has more far-reaching benefits to your health.
While you certainly shouldn't drink an entire bottle of wine, especially if you have to go back to work, a glass of wine is a healthy addition to your meal. A glass of wine with food in your belly also lightens the load on your liver.
