Louisa May Alcott, Little Women
My love for coffee runs deep. Unfortunately, we have a rather sordid relationship. I love the gentle caffeine buzz in the morning, it's warm comfort, it's flavor...all of it.
Unfortunately, the jittery crash that often follows is not so lovely. I know it makes me anxious. I know it makes my blood sugar feel out of whack come late afternoon. My integrative medicine doctor suggested years ago that we break up. How dare she.
I made it almost 2 years without regular coffee fixes. But over the last year or so I have started back up. It calls to me. Tea, not so much. But I realize that feeling calm, cool and collected is worth the sacrifice. So I have been easing myself off via decaf. Then I got to thinking: Perhaps there are other, non liquid, ways to experience the joys of my friend Joe.
Here's to you, my love. On a Thursday.
