The coffee I make is pretty low-cal, just around 30-40, actually. I use 1 tsp each of coffee crystals, sugar, powdered creamer, and a non-dairy creamer for flavor (currently I'm on Int'l Delights Caramel Macchiato). It's not the healthiest concoction, but it's SO good and doesn't do too much damage.

I am a huge fan of tea. If I need something sweet, Bigelow Plantation Mint is my absolute favorite.

I also have a bit of a salty tooth, so I've started sipping on warm cups of broth in the afternoon. I like the reduced sodium canned broths or the individual packets of bullion (no sodium) made by Herb Ox.

I'm another tea fan! There are so many different kinds of tea out there, I can find one to suit most any mood.

... and I'm BOSTON BOUND!!!!
Capital City Marathon (16 May 10) - 3:36:52

...and instead of running Boston, I had a kid! And then 2.5 years later I had another one.
BUT, I've never stopped running or racing!

One of these days, I'll re-qualify for Boston. And tackle Goofy's Race and a Half. Maybe an ultra. Or a half Ironman...

My current favorite tea is Tazo's Wild Sweet Orange. It's good enough to drink without sweetener, but you can use stevia which has no calories.

I love light hot chocolate and hot mint tea.

I love hot black tea, hot green tea, hot herbal teas (can you tell I love tea?). But I've also found sugar free hot chocolate mixes at the grocery store (only 25 calories per packet). Or you could make your own hot chocolate with skim milk, cocoa powder, and splenda...

I am fond of Mint tea with a touch of stevia or sugar. I had an aunt who every morning drank hot lemon water.

There are all sorts of light hot chocolates around. I really enjoy high quality coffee with a very small amount of brown sugar. Somehow it kicks the chocolate craving for me.

I LOVE mate' (mah-tay). Are you familiar with it? I just LOVE the stuff. I have been drinkig it for 15 years or so. I used to drink it with milk and honey, but now I drink it plain with just a little stevia. There are also ENDLESS combos of herbal teas-some even taste like spiced cider. Good luck!

A healthy body is the best accessory.

I worked to get myself used to drinking coffee black, then get interesting flavoured ones, like caramel, very low calorie!

In Egypt, winter came sooo late, just started a week ago, It's finally here though!
I just love covering myself up with a blanket and drinking Hot Chocolate infront of the TV.
Do you guys have any ideas for Hot drinks that are not too high in calories?
