I hope ya’ll are enjoying all of our blogs because we’re certainly enjoying writing them. Also, I really, really needed a place to share my random thoughts. Like today’s post, which I’ve had the idea to do for months but never quite felt like I could take up a whole post on something that, really, has little (okay, nothing) to do with fitness: tea and coffee!
Over the past few months I have been obsessed with French press coffee and chai tea. With—and this is the really, really tasty part—Trader Joe’s organic half and half. (In case you missed this post, TJ’s is my happy place. And buying dairy from cows that aren’t pumped with hormones makes me feel pretty dang good.) Oh. My. Goodness. It’s heaven.
Sure, I could save a few calories by skipping the half and half, but then I’m pretty sure my life-happiness quotient would go down. And that’s not worth it, is it? Yeah, I didn’t think so. Plus, it’s just so very pretty. Just look at how beautiful it is pouring into a cup…
And then, if that wasn’t enough deliciousness, sometimes I even add honey to my tea. (For coffee, I never add sugar—just my personal preference.) Who doesn’t love the honey bear?
I don’t do this every day. Rather, it’s a weekend treat I savor. There’s nothing like a leisurely Saturday morning where you’re cooking a nice breakfast, relaxing and drinking some French press coffee or tea with the real stuff. And, for me, this is all what being an FBG is about. It’s eating and savoring the foods (and drinks!) I love.
Are there any “unhealthy” foods you indulge in regularly? Any other full-fat cream lovers out there? French press users? Be heard! —Jenn
