Tea without sugar
Wednesday, July 01, 2020
What can I say but that it's a challenge to drink tea without sugar? I can do without sugar in most things, but tea, it's hard to drink it without sugar and creamer. I don't like sugar in coffee, but right now I'm solving having a big case of nutrition drinks by adding half of one to my morning coffee, and it's ok but not delicious. For the first week or so after gall bladder surgery, food disgusted me and the most I could do was drink a couple of Ensures a day, so my sister got me a case of them for when I got home. Now I'm eating regular food, in amounts I can tolerate, and I don't need the Ensure, but using half of one a day seems to be working fine.
But back to tea without sugar, I have a few options, but none of them are as appealing as loading up the sugar. I can 1. Brew tea and add twice as much water as I usually do, to cut down on the bitterness. 2. Use a little sugar and eat less carbohydrates in the rest of my meals. 3. Use a little less sugar each time I drink tea until I get used to it not being sweet. But it's easier to write about than it is to do.
