Cup o' joe had to go!

Thursday, December 13, 2012

Cauwfee tawk: My cup o' joe had to go! The one cup standard limit had turned into two cups with flavored creamer, or half & half with honey, or almond milk and sugar! Whatever's needed to enhance the black sludge (although my husband says I taint the coffee--I beg to differ.)

I'd still like to consider the high octane stuff a nice indulgence for special occasions but for now I've given up joe for green tea with honey. I've heard from many sources that just giving up coffee can help me lose weight and reduce crazy cravings.

Green tea on the other hand, is a subtle energy booster, revs up weight loss potential and is an antioxidant to boot! Plus it's warm & soothing without the belly bloat.

I'm day 4 into the switcheroo.

Have you tried green tea today?

    Green tea is great and make sure that you don't burn the tea. That is pour boiling hot water over it. It takes hot water that just gets to the boiling stage but does not boil. If you do boil it let it cool some and then pour it over the tea, if you don't then you will get a very bitter taste.

    I can't (more like unwilling) to give up my 2 cups o' joe in the morning! I've trimmed it down though to only adding about 1/4 cup plain almond milk per cup; only costs me about 15 calories each morning...well worth it in my opinion!

I WAS, however, able to kick the afternoon cup o' joe habit! I, too, have started drinking green tea (really, any kind works for me) in the afternoons. Sometimes a little peppermint or chamomile before bed.

Good stuff!
