My husband’s most-dreaded phrase to hear from me is this:
“So, I’ve decided…”
Whenever I say this to him it is always met with the same initial response: “Uh oh.”
It’s not always bad, and it usually doesn’t require anything from him, but I like to inform him of the choices I have made no matter how short lived they may be. No sugar for October? Yea, that lasted until I made a batch of Pumpkin Pie Cinnamon Rolls from Oh She Glows.
My latest decision?
I’m off coffee.
I tend to go through phases with my coffee consumption. One cup a day turns into two, two cups turn into a whole pot, a whole pot turns into making another pot in the afternoon until I reach the point where I can’t take it anymore.
I don’t really have a reason for wanting to stop drinking coffee right now, it’s just turned into something I do a few times a years so my husband was not overly surprised this time around.
I don’t believe that coffee is ‘bad’ for you but I do think I have been drinking too much of it lately. Foodtrainers wrote a great post last week about coffee that touches on how the stuff you put in your coffee (just milk for me please) is usually worse than the coffee itself. I also find when I drink coffee it makes me crave baked goods and sugar – the two just go so well together!
And I really like coffee, which means I will probably buy a bag of decaf coffee beans soon so I can still enjoy a morning cup of joe (minus the cinnamon rolls of course).
I have made room for one small indulgence though.
Once this arrives from Helen over at Helen, Naturally I will definitely be making a cup. I was lucky to win her Blog Birthday/Anniversary giveaway last week and am excited to try out some of her favourite things. I suggest you check out her blog because she is fabulous.
Maybe Cinnamon Roll flavoured coffee will mean I won’t want an actual cinnamon roll.
Are you a coffee drinker? Does coffee make you crave sweets?
