Hi there Journal & Friends,
Happy St Paddy's Day, everyone!
Quite awhile ago Chris, at a Deliberate Life, and Karen, at Fitness: A Journey Not a Destination, gave me the Honest Scrap Award.
I don't usually do awards, but enjoyed their answers so much, that I thought I would fit in my "10 Bests" here and there. So today I am on the third installment:
3. Best Cup of Coffee
On Day 103 I wrote a Friday Favorites post, and in the second half I talked about my favorite cuppa joe and how I make it (HERE).
I have it every morning, made by coffee barista ME. It is so luscious, and at only about 75 calories (with my cream, sweeteners and flavorings) it is sooo worth it. :-)
I have a jillion different ways to flavor it, so it is always different. My current favorite is Irish Cream. I use a tiny pinch of powdered stevia, some Irish Cream sugar-free daVinci syrup, and about 5 drops of Capellas Irish Cream flavoring , and 1 tablespoon cream (yep, I measure it). Mmmmm.
I have a long way to go still, on this journey. I don't want to feel like I am on a "diet", so I purposely spend a part of my calorie budget on things that I totally enjoy, like my flavored coffee. To me, it's worth it. :-)
