I have no pimples from drinking a cup of hot unsweetened cocoa powder with ghee and lecithin and a touch of BS Molasses every night!!
note I do not add any type of milk or other sweetener to that which would cause some pimples for sure!!

Yum, Lola!  That sounds so delicious.  We're really onto something with the black cocoa, and it doesn't need any milk to make it rich.  I love the drink.

Let me not pass you by in quest

Hi Susana,

I've taken to drinking one cup black
coffee with my meat and vegetabel
and prunes and piece of chocolate for
breakfast. Started about 6 weeks
ago after stopping for 6+ months.

Yes, one cup of black coffee with
my breakfast gives me higher
energy levels and yes, I do get
more work done. My day starts at
5:50 am, Mon. thru Fri. and the
early time is not my cup of tea
(no pun intended).

I have never been a heavy
coffee drinker in my life and
go for decades not having
any. There is no headache
or other withdrawal symptoms
if I suddenly stop. It is strickly
for energy and , I guess, taste
that I drink it now. Without it,
at this job that I've had for the
last 1 1/2 years, I feel "dragging".
It's one of those things that
you make a call on regarding
the BTD. I eat mostly beneficials,
some neutrals and very few
avoids.

Maybe Dr. D's new book will allow
coffee for certain 0's. Dreaming?
Maybe.

Cordially,
Margaret

why not just dark chocolate instead of coffee? the dark still has caffeine.....i think you have the ability to adapt to the stress without coffee, and perhaps looking for excuses.

Hi Lola,

You're right, my post does have those short poem-like lines. In emails if there are too many letters per line the receiving end gets everything chopped up so I was trying to avoid that happening here.

I've learned something new. Just type and let the lines fall where they may!

Thank you, comper, for your confidence in my ability. I do drink dark cocoa powder with agave the rest of the day---about 3 cups. Did I mention that I drink a cup of the dark cocoa along with my cup of coffee with breakfast? Yes. The one cup of black coffee makes my work day pleasant. Without it I'm just puttin' in the time...something that is odious to an 0.

Cordially,
Margaret

Here I sit... in a hotel..and drinking my green tea!!   What a milestone, given that the coffee with the free breakfast would be the evil thing causing me to give in  in past weeks....
I am here for parents' weekend at my son's  college..  breakfast will be on campus, so I guess I'll just play it safe and eat fruit and tea... lunch at his fraternity house is on the grill... might be ok!! anyway, I'm getting through another weekend of being  "out of my element" without  wrecking my normal way of eating...

Lola, I have one of those, but I did not know what it was called exactly.... I bought it from a  coffee shop in florida.. this guy was selling them from his homeland...  but the stuff I bought from him to put in it is Yerba Mate.. and  is it to drink cold or hot? I was thinking cold... I'd LOVE it hot.. can I do that?  it's more "green" tasting, isn't it? sort of like a green tea? is that what you drink  all of the time?  anyway,  I do like mine, but I don't get it out much..

I drink yerba mate hot!!
I take about 2 or 3 teaspoons in my 'matera' every morning.........
and I fill it twice with hot water, not boiling, just nice and hot.
I would not take it cold.......

that s about all the mate I take a day, mornings, and love it.....
I just do not care for it later on during the day, then I take a large cup of green tea, with some lemongrass......

I can get that powdered or with 'twigs' and leaves mixed.......called 'con palo' in Spanish......
I do prefer the less powdered one, 'con palo'........has more 'body' to it, I think.

I buy tea bags and have it in a mug. I am so Occidental . Although I have read some Argentinians have it this way as well

I will get all my gear together soon. I just wish I could hold some samples so I know what shape of bombilas is best etc...

I want to buy myself a new breakfast kit. I love breakfast kits so this one will be my next. I wonder what will be my husband's look
