I decided (on Friday night) that I was going to no longer have “Folgers in my cup” during Lenten season. I knew it would be a challenge as coffee is always…and I mean always…a part of morning routine. But the more I thought about it, the more it was clear that I didn’t necessarily feel any more awake with coffee and it always left me with a stomach ache and one big hot flash after sipping the last drop.
I’m on my third day of no coffee and I must say that I’m surviving quite well. That is, if you ignore the irritability I had the first day and the pounding headache that is still hanging around up there.
I’ve searched the internet for coffee substitutions and tea is always the first recommendation. I’m not a tea lover; I’d say more a tea liker. I have friends that are as obsessed with tea as I was with coffee, but I can’t seem to get hooked on it. It just doesn’t have that same “consistency” as coffee...more watered down than I would like.
A couple of friends have commented on my Facebook saying they have given up coffee and I would L-O-V-E to hear if you have, too! If so, what are you drinking in place of it? Are you a tea drinker? If so, what is your favorite kind? Do you add anything to your cup?
