I have been crabby lately. I've been doing some changing folks. If you follow my blog, you know I love my coffee. Light and sweet with powdered creamer and two Splendas.
Well, it's been ten days since I've had coffee. I found a tea (oolong) that I love and have substitute it in the morning. It's been really hard but the headaches weren't as bad as I had in the past when I've tried to stop drinking coffee.
Why did I do this? Well, it's about all the artificial sweeteners I was ingesting. I had bought a Costco box of Splenda (1500 count) and had used it all in eight months. Holy crap!!
My daily routine used to be: three cups of coffee (6 Splendas), plain Greek yogurt (2 Splendas), and one Coke Zero (??? Splendas).
Yikes oh yikes. Here's the thing about tea and me. I don't like my tea sweet. So I have found a tea I like and put my coffeemaker away. I don't miss it as much as I thought I would. I am forty now, I can do anything I set my mind to.
Now, I add a tsp on Agave on my yogurt and I am down to two Coke Zero per week. It's crazy when you give up sugar and artificial sweeteners how sweeter foods taste when you have it.
