Switching to tea instead of coffee

Friday, March 10, 2017

The reasons I have decided to switch to tea instead of coffee is because.... I'm pretty sure it's less calories every time I drink it for a few reasons one being I like the taste of it without any sweet at all and I don't really care to have milk in it. I tried to drink coffee without sugar. I actually found that honey or maple syrup actually tastes better in my coffee especially maple syrup and that's good because it's lower on the glycemic index and therefore overall better for your body. And I tried to drink my coffee without any sweet at all for awhile but eventually I just went back to sweetening it because I really like it that way. But really the bottom line is I think that t is easier on my stomach I don't know if it's the milk or if it's the acidic quality of coffee but I definitely think it's easier on my stomach. So anyway I have a large container of coffee in my fridge and I will be facing that out because I think I have officially decided to gradually make the switch.

    I drink 3 cups of coffee every morning, but have always drank it black. Once in a while I will add a flavored creamer to it. I drink tea frequently for dinner, again, always black. Sometimes I will add a flavoring to it and a packet of splenda.

    You can count unsweetened tea in with your water count too.

    Sounds like you are doing some great problem solving and trying new things. I love all of them unsweetened and dairy free, but it took some taste bud training to get there. Now I like this way better.
