Not Your Huckleberry

Anyone else do their coffee cowboy style? French Press-ish as far as results, just much less refined, if you don't mind that. Gotta buy a new French press this week, a friend broke mine.

I typically get McD's coffee, but I'm thinking of giving up both coffee and tea this year. Too much sugar.

I enjoy both with either a little bit of sugar free sweetener or none at all.   I cannot do McD's coffee, though.  Makes my stomach upset.

If you're looking to control blood sugar levels or simply trying to consume less sugar, stevia and Splenda (sucralose) are your safer options. Stevia is probably the best as it has zero impact on blood glucose for MOST people; in fact, in some, it actually lowers blood sugar. Splenda is another fairly safe option but it does have a small impact, plus most preparations contain other fillers like dextrose and maltodextrin. I stay away from aspartame (equal) and saccharin (sweet n low). Then you have your sugar alcohols like xylitol and erythritol, but they can be pretty expensive.

Obviously the safest option is to add nothing at all, but I know you don't like bland coffee.

Holiday Blend in the new French press from one of my favorite coffee and baked goodie shops this morning; Ally and Eloise on Main Street, Columbia, South Carolina. 

http://www.allyandeloise.com/

The sweetest, most helpful girls in the world work in there. I drop in there to flirt and sexy up the place, and sometimes get freebies. Walton's Famous Cheesecake is a must have if you love a medium density cheesecake. Sour cream topping. Candied pecans baked into the crust. **** yes.

Feeling like crap, so it's peppermint, lemon, ginger and chamomile tea for me tonight.

Morning - Illy Espresso in the French press; dash of heavy cream, stevia, pink salt.

Mid morning and afternoon - Peet's French Roast in the French press; stevia, pink salt.

Both are some of the best one can buy off the store shelf. Peet's French roast is a very dark, very, VERY bold roast for the true coffee lover. But it's only for people who actually like coffee that tastes like coffee; apparently most people who drink coffee really don't.

GRRR wrong thread but why does everyone get bounced to the wrong page when they log in to comment, TARDS CODERS SLACKER AND NOT TESTING THAT`S WHY ! I'd SAY A MAN THING BUT Thats going too far.  Okay ... now for the tea

HA!

Naturally its something close to OOOOOOoolong, but if that isn't handy or like right now I can't buy it from my favourite lovely local marketeer then I can suffice with 'Good Earth' ~ Spice something.

I hate tea, obviously a Brit thing and I just have to add TG ! for cream and sugar!

Just a cup of black coffee in the morning. French roast, strong. 

I’ve been trying to cut back on my caffeine intake late in the day since I have trouble falling asleep.

You may wonder why I haven't revisited my own thread. The answer is simple, I quit caffeine :lol: At least temporarily, I'm taking a break. I felt some adrenal fatigue and cortisol levels felt constantly high, so I'm off the caffeine for a minute. Others who feel like no amount of coffee is ever enough may want to consider taking a break every now and again, as well.

- Unsweetened black coffee: one mug right after getting up, one mug right after lunch.

- Herbal tea once in a while, after dinner: thyme + organic green tea/mint. The stronger, the better.

Today I started with hot cocoa, my usual - unsweetened cocoa powder, powdered milk, hot water and a little regular whole milk to cool it down.  Now I am fixing a big glass of ice tea using PG tips tea bag.  Some days I have a cola, Blue Sky with real sugar or CocaCola when I get take out.  I used to dring 2 quarts of tea a day but I got some twitches that went away when I cut back on the tea.
