It's been a long time since I've posted. I just celebrated 2 years Vegan..yes, that's a capital V ;) I have a vegan YouTube channel called 'RockVegan' Check it out! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCrAayu5EVF57wtPTWlioMkw
I love to cook and live in New York so when Winter comes and fruit is more of a challenge (except for my bananas, thank God) I go into 'hibernation'!!! I went back to coffee. I know, I know! Don't beat me up! It was such a hard and painful process to give up. I'm disappointed. Now I start my shake after my coffee. Being honest here. I have a love hate relationship with it. I only drink a cup in the morning and I want to try to kick the habit again. I don't like being addicted to anything. The jury is still not out on coffee. I know many of you will disagree and that's okay. It's way more important for me to eschew all animal products. Ideally, I would like to give up coffee. I look forward to hearing from you and touching base again. I've missed this site and find it informative and very helpful. Sure..convince me to kick my nasty habit again! (please ;)
I have never drank coffee but the way I see it is you put coffee in to make it bitter and black, and sugar in to make it sweet and milk in to make it white...kinda makes no sense O_o Just drink the warm water on its own and you will be all good ;)
I wish it was that simple :)
I have been drinking coffee for many years and I don't add sweeteners, just a little soy milk. It's a high, it's a ritual, it's hard to kick! I love my shakes and herbal tea and all that good stuff. But that damn coffee!!!!!
Oh damn! Glad I never got addicted to it! My mother is 44 and she has never drank a cup of coffee in her life either :) Good luck J :) Vegan <3 to ya
My mother is addicted at around 49 or so and has multiple cups a day (but with loads of sugar)...I'm so glad I never caught the coffee bug like that. Worst thing is it's habit more than anything for her, but I know she craves it for the stimulates because of how little sleep she often gets...
Anyhoo, I always like lemon-ginger water (with lots of ginger) nice and warm. If you haven't tried it Jodesmode, try it! It's extremely yummy to me, even without any sweeteners or anything. It's so simple to make too, just squeeze a lemon, or cut it up and toss it in a small pot with some small-sliced ginger (or grated) and heat till it's adequately warm (unless you like it cold, in which case you could just soak it).
I just stick to plain fruit now in the mornings, but occasionally I'll make some of that and it's always yummy. It's not really like coffee though, obviously, but it gives a warming feeling too.
Thanks Sweet Thing! I do like ginger xo
