Coffee Sweet Coffee

I don’t know about you, but on Monday mornings coffee is my lifeblood.

I actually prefer my coffee with milk and sugar. 😉


Coffee sometimes gets a bad rep.  I get a lot of people asking me, should I be cutting coffee out of my diet?


When those words leave their lips, my world comes screeching to a halt.

I try desperately try not to look at them like this…

I resist the urge to exclaim, “You must be crazy!”

I calmly respond, “Coffee has lots of beneficial properties!”


Phew. Dodged that bullet.


So unless your coffee looks like this…

I say drink up!


Coffee Fun Facts

  • In the US, 150 million people over the age of 18 drink coffee
  • A 12 oz skim latte can have as much as 30% your total daily calcium needs
  • Coffee in moderation has shown to decrease the risk for heart disease, diabetes, dementia, and other diseases
  • Coffee contains antioxidants which help fight cancer-causing free radicals
  • Researchers have found that coffee increases student concentration (that’s reason enough for me!)
  • Women who drink coffee have a lower risk for depression


Remember, as with all good things, it’s all about moderation!  Don’t forget that coffee is also a diuretic, so follow you morning cup o’ joe with a big glass of water!


Happy Monday!
