I think it’s fair to say that I have a pretty strong love affair with my coffee. I start my day with my 28 ounce mug filled to the brim. Everyone in the house knows that it’s best to talk to me after I have made it at least half way through that mug of jo. I love my morning coffee so much that when I am planning a trip- one of the things I research is how close the nearest coffee shop is to where I’m staying. Yep – it has to be a good STRONG cup with rich, bold flavor. I can’t live without my coffee. So you can imagine how bummed out I was when I started researching the ingredients in the things I add to my coffee. Yeah- a whole lot of things I can’t pronounce. That can’t be good. Plus I think those additives are making me feel not quite right. I don’t know for sure though & there was only one way to find out – but I wasn’t going to give up my coffee to do it. So I decided to do a little experiment & change what I’m adding to my cup. I started with this Homemade Vanilla Coffee Syrup.
It adds just what I like- along with a little splash of half & half. YUM! I’m going to give it about a month & see how I feel. See if I notice any changes in my skin or weight or just overall energy. I’ll keep you posted. In the meantime – I’m just enjoying the flavor of this in my cup. I think you will too.
