Life with a small human is wild! The day to day: cooking, cleaning, feeding, playing, mommy meet-ups, shopping, laundry (omg the laundry) is never ending. And when you’re on a health and wellness journey where things like daily workouts and walks, eating healthy and getting proper sleep are non-negotiable, there leaves very little time for anything else.
I adore everything about coffee: the daily ritual, the taste, the aromatics, and admittedly, the caffeine high. Coffee is so much a part of my day-to-day that I recently carved out a small spot in my home for a coffee bar. This coveted corner is where I store my espresso machine and grinder, various French presses, pour-overs, coffee mugs, and of course, a stockpile of various beans to try out. But one thing I always have on hand is mushroom coffee.
I don’t know about you, but when I’m highly focused on not eating something, it just makes me want it more (give me all the wine and cheese, please!). Years ago I came across a brilliant concept on dieting that has stuck with me and forever changed the way I think about food.
As I write this, I’m sitting at my desk with a hot cup of Earl Grey Tea secretly wishing I had coffee instead. I adore coffee! Ever since my University days, I have relied on Joe to give me a strong kick in the ass first thing in the morning and to fuel both my productivity and creativity at work. For years I had known that my consumption was on the higher side and that I should probably cut back. But a few weeks ago, I randomly Googled, how much caffeine can I have in a day? and discovered that the answer was way more complicated than I originally thought.
