Ok, I admit I'm a slow adopter. LOL. So many of you probably already have been making this for centuries. Most of you know how much I still :780_sparkling_heart: my decaff Protein lattes--17 months out. I still love the mornings when I'm not fasting and get to put a juuuge in mah morning or afternoon cuppa. :D Nirvana!

BUT! Lately, I've been jamming on two different decaff coffee variations! They are "non-recipes". Not a great deal of measuring...unless you want to track your cocoa.

Decaff With Cinnamon - Just sprinkle a bit of ground cinnamon in the bottom of your cup and fill with hot decaff coffee. Nothing else. No sweetener. No Creamer or Protein Drink. Just pure cinnamon and decaff. So refreshing. Plus the ground cinnamon may make you lower your blood glucose! Score!

Mocha Cafe With Cinnamon - Put 5g of extra dark cocoa powder in the bottom of mug + ground cinnamon + decaff coffee. Stir as you add the super hot (coffee needs to be super hot to incorporate the cocoa) coffee. Enjoy. Cocoa is filled with anti-oxidants and polyphenols that offer great nutritional bang for your buck and makes your gut and brain happy happy! :D



What are some of your easy peasy non-recipes/tips of things that get your through the day without adding a crap ton of calories or leading yourself astray from cravings?

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me in a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week
