Why I Really Appreciate My First Cup of Coffee

Why I Really Appreciate My First Cup of Coffee

My cup of coffee in the morning is my first simple pleasure of the day. I've spoken many times around here about morning routines and how to make mornings more productive, but today I want to chat a little bit about why my first cup of coffee is a reminder to be thankful. It may seem silly, but I really try to take a minute to appreciate my cup of coffee. The reason is when I was having severe health issues I did Auto Immune Protocol Diet (AIP). AIP essentially has you cut out all foods that could be inflammatory and then you add foods back one by one to see which ones you cause your intolerance. This being said, I had to cut out coffee for TWO MONTHS. Thankfully at the end of those two months I was able to add most things back into my diet with the exception of gluten and dairy. Even when I could add coffee back into my routine, I couldn't make it with my traditional dairy creamer. I'm someone who likes a little bit of coffee with my creamer so it was a big challenge for me.

To this day, I am constantly searching for non-dairy creamer that tastes delicious but isn't loaded with sugar. That's why I was so excited when I found the Coffee mate® natural bliss® Plant Based Half & Half Vanilla conveniently at my local Walmart. It checks off all of the things on my list because its all natural, plant-based, gluten-free, non-GMO clean label and the vanilla has only 2g of sugar per serving.

Walmart also carries Coffee mate® natural bliss® Plant Based Half & Half Unsweetened that has zero grams of sugar. I also really like that both of these are made of half almond milk and half coconut cream. You can find them in the creamer section at your local Walmart.

So now, whenever I sit down in the morning to enjoy my first cup of coffee at my office I take a moment to be thankful for my health and the fact that I have the privilege to do what I love every day.

So I hope that whatever little reminders you have in your life, you take a minute to appreciate your blessings. Happiness is absolutely a choice, and I hope that you choose every day to look on the bright side. 🙂
