I LOVE coffee. Most people knew that if I had that "look" on my face in the morning, it meant I hadn't had my coffee. Well, come to find out, that coffee is roughly 700 calories!!!! I decided to stop drinking it because there is no way I can justify that, and I didn't want to feel like I needed it anymore. Now I feel great. I don't feel as sluggish once the sugar high wears off. I avoid the shop because it's too hard to say house coffee instead of White Chocolate Mocha.
If you need something to replace the coffee (as I did), try tea. I know it might sound boring, but there are some really great teas out there. Try Teavana Youthberry and Orange Blossom.

Some guidelines for grocery shopping - You've heard the line, "Stay on the perimeters of the grocery store", no? This helps you stay away from the snack, sugary drinks and processed foods! I take this one further and only go into an aisle if I need something there. No impulse shopping in an aisle! Also, if you haven't eaten recently, consider having a healthy snack including something protein before you shop. This actually will save you time and money in the long run.250
