So I say I’m not addicted to coffee. When I don’t have it I don’t notice a difference in my energy or alertness. I’ve never noticed a “coffee buzz” or felt I needed it to wake up or I’d be groggy.
But after asking my dad about his coffee habits (he has a cup or two in the mornings), he said he gets a headache in the afternoons when he doesn’t have it in the mornings.
Well, after a few days of experimentation, I realized I also have that reaction. Must be genetic. Yesterday I had a mild headache that ran into my shoulders from about 5 p.m. until I went to bed and realized about mid-way through the night that didn’t have coffee in the morning. That’s the third time it’s happened. I DO NOT want to rely on coffee, so I’m thinking that despite how much I love the taste, I need to cut myself off for a while to reset my brain. Anyone have any idea how long that might take!?
It was fun to sleep in and have oats first thing this morning.
- 1/3 cup oats
- 1/3 cup milk
- 1/3 cup water
- 1/2 small banana
- 1/4 cup wheatberries
- 2 tbsp trail mix
- Small spoonful almond butter
- Sprinkle of coconut
From above, with the evil substance –
After breakfast I walked to the lightrail and back, reading Cooking Light on the way home. There are too many good recipes in this world and not enough meals!!
