Coffee Update

Just a quick update on how I'm doing in this first week of progress on my goal to cut down my coffee consumption.

Thus far this week, I've had one cup of coffee, after dinner on Monday. It was soooooo good. There seems to be something so comforting after a big and hearty meal about a soothing cup of hot coffee (or tea, for that matter...).

But that's all! So I'm doing pretty well!!

I haven't, however, been particularly happy with the replacement. The tea that I have is not as comforting a morning drink as I hoped it would be. I had some hot chocolate on Monday and that was very nice, but I'm not sure I'd want that every day.

Any suggestions for a nice hot drink to enjoy in the mornings that isn't coffee but has an equal comfort factor? Or a brand of tea you really enjoy?

I do have such a suggestion! I love Yorkshire Gold tea. Its fully flavored like coffee, amazingly tasty, and the best brit tea. I drink mine with milk and sugar, and find it to be just oh so perfect. Let me know if you can't get it or find it where you are - I'd be happy to drop some in the post for you! Blessings.

I'm a big fan of Tazo's Wild Sweet Orange, and of anything by Republic of Tea (Cardamon Cinnamon is my very fav).

But I am an inveterate coffee consumer. If I ever get pregnant, giving that up will be the hardest part (apart from any attendant nausea, I guess).

You might try Ovaltine -- it has a vaguely malty flavour -- nuke a mug of milk and stir in a couple of spoonsful...

I like to drink hot tea but it still has caffeine.

I wish I had some suggestions for you but I drink coffee. Even when I was pregnant the best I could do was cut it down. Now that I am not supposed to drink much I am at 2 cups of coffee and 1 Diet Coke a day.

What about fruit juice? Or do you want it to be warm?

Thanks so much to all of you for your suggestions!!

ccw - I should drink more juice than I do, but there's something about a nice hot drink in the morning that I really like. This morning, that drink is... coffee.

Wow. I'm impressed. Coffee...I needs it (in the addicted way...when I don't have it, I gets the headache).

my all time, hands down, FAVORITE tea can be found here.

sweet and spicy and mmm... and there is caffeine in it.
