Daughter’s Treat

Today is Thursday, May 1st

The topic or question of the day is:

Flavored Coffees

     The flavored coffees at various coffee shops and restaurants can be chock full off calories or diet syrups with chemicals.  The other day my daughter was telling me her secret of saving money, calories, and chemicals.  She makes black coffee, adds a little ditty of milk and sprinkles with a good cinnamon.  For most people, this concoction will not taste as delicious as a full blown sugary tasting, creamy coffee, but it will certainly be healthier, cheaper, and help one get away from the desire for sweet tastes.  It is worth the try.  Remember, the brain is the control center of your body.  When I gave up coffee with cream and sugar back in my 20’s, I had to tell myself, “You are going to like this, there is no other choice if you want to prevent weight gain or stop cavities.

Tip or quote of the day

“You can’t eat or drink whatever you want, whenever you want and lose weight.  You have to make a choice” – Dr. Beck, Penn State
