This was another article I saw on MSN. The person who wrote it clearly doesn't know the FULL SCOOP about coffee. (see what I did there?) Here are the “bad things” about coffee that we are to give up. You know what I say? “When you pry my coffee mug out of my cold, dead, hands!!”
Whipped cream. Phooey. Not giving it up.
Sugar. Phooey. Ditto.
Don't buy it, make it. Invest in high quality coffee or espresso maker.
OK, I admit it's a LOT cheaper to make it yourself. But I've TRIED. MANY times. It does NOT resemble fancy bought coffees.
Creamer. If you MUST use it, soy creamers are better. Vegan creamer is best of all.
Have you checked the prices on specialty creamers? Huh? Phooey again.
Before bed...caffeine no, decaf yes.
Once again, this one makes sense. It's OK.
Too much caffeine
Another sensible one. Sarah was hooked on caffeine in high school. I know people who cannot have it or they'll start shaking. Just know yourself.
Splurging on the venti. You may become more caffeine dependent. And if you begin the day with a huge amount of caffeine, you will crash later. The article suggests starting your day with a small one, and having another later in the day.
Coffee syrups....no healthy version for this. Phooey.
Any kind of a “mocha”. Might as well drink a milkshake. Very high in calories.
Ask me: is it worth it? Hell, yeah!
It seemed the main complaint was adding sugar and calories. They advised to just drink PLAIN COFFEE. WHAT GOOD IS THAT???
