Those of you who consider yourselves healthy… what do you drink in the morning? I’d like to think I don’t need caffeine, but lets be real… If I want to get healthy I can’t also cut caffeine at the same time.
I love Starbucks, specifically their ultra-sugary favored combinations usually featured as new each season. I realize these are horrible for me, as I’m learning sugar is really the root of all evil. I’ve tried to replace my morning Starbucks run with coffee at home, and to some extent it has worked. Sort of. I bought a cute little pour-over pot, shown below, and an electric kettle, also shown below, that I now use for everything, including watering my plants. (No laughing, it’s perfect for it!) Pour-over coffee at home proposes the same issue though, I don’t actually like the taste of coffee. So even at home I’m pouring a lot of flavored creamer into each cup, essentially making it as unhealthy as Starbucks. Although much more affordable!
This morning I tried something new… I added a scoop of my favorite vanilla-flavored protein powder, shown below, to my coffee, instead of creamer. First let me say I really like this particular protein powder, the taste is really good with very little sugar and mixes in really well to water or almond milk. The same can not be said for hot coffee? Was it hot the problem? It tasted off, and the texture was interesting, to say the least…
Any suggestions of what else I can try?
