Coffee, how I love thee. Runners always speak of carbohydrates and proteins, but coffee is up near the top of favorite foods. I love coffee. I drink around 4-5 cups a day. I drink it black. No cream or sugar. My favorite blend is Nescafé taster’s choice instant coffee. Just boil some water and you are ready to go. When I would purchase it from a store, Dunkin Donuts was the way to go.
I have quit coffee a few times in the past but I always find myself going back to it. In fact, I am contemplating quitting again. I realize though I need it for my job. Nothing shows a smile through the phone like a nice hot cup of coffee. Also, at our household, we sometimes have some early mornings. The kids can be up around 5:00am most mornings.
The one thing I have noticed with my coffee addiction is that it is similar to my food additions. If I try to cut back and slip up, it can take a few days to recover from it. Sometimes I am all or nothing. I would like to cut back to 3 cups a day, but it is difficult. Coffee is my only source of caffeine. I stay away from soda and energy drinks.
How much coffee to do you drink?
