I drink decaf to warm up in the cold lab where I work. Fortunately my company provides organic lactose-free milk or half and half. My stomach can't handle the acid in coffee or black tea. I have learned to drink it unsweetened though. The health food store does have a powdered something alternative, but I haven't tried it.

Unfortunately, most offices only offer the cheap stuff. In some places where I've worked, I brought in my own milk as they usually have a small frig available and when that wasn't an option, I brought in my own mini frig.

Good luck!

Remember, nobody can go back to the very beginning and make a brand new start, but anyone can start here and make a brand new end.

You may not like this answer, but it really is worth it getting used to black coffee. I made the switch a number of years ago to avoid that horrible powder creamer my office supplied. It wasn't easy, but I learned that the cheap coffee is the yucky stuff. The high quality coffee is 100x better than the cheap stuff. By using high end coffee, I have only 1 or 2 cups per day, its all I need now and fill the rest of my day with water. When I go to a restaurnt that serves the cheap stuff, I find it completely undrinkable if black, and on those Good luck!

I know that I can drink coffee on the Eat Clean Diet, but it has to be black, yuck! I I usually have a 8 ounce cup of coffee with 1 tablespoon of creamer and 2 teaspoons of sugar. I do not like sweeteners either they leave a nasty after taste. Does anyone else have coffee still? If so how do you drink your coffee?
