Good Stuff for Coffee Day | Life as MOM

I didn’t love coffee until after college — and then it was more milk and sugar than it was coffee. Most days now I drink it simply with light coconut milk from the can. It’s a little bit naturally sweet and mixes well into the hot java. It’s better for me than the tablespoon (yes, TABLESPOON) of sugar I was putting into my coffee prior to my Whole30.

I confess, though, that when fall comes, and the Salted Carmel Mocha Frappucino is on the scene. Well, yeah, I’m a goner. I think I’ve had more fraps in the last month than I have had all year! Forget the PSL, give me the SCMF!

Today, in case you didn’t know, is National Coffee Day. It was begun in Japan in 1983. It’s got lots of other names: Coffee Day, International Coffee Day, Coffee Break Day, whatever.

While I’m a firm believer in the SCMF, I also think that we’re better served to make most of our coffee and accompanying treats at home. So, here’s a fun round up to make your coffee break a little sweeter today.

    Hi Jessica I’m sorry your hip hurts. I need rotator cuff surgery saw my family doc he said continue my stretching exercises and take 2 alive 2x per day prescription dose. If that doesn’t work we will send u to an orthopedic surgeon for cortisone shots? I had been on line to find my stretching exercises which really help! Along with the aleve. But it sounds like u should go straight to the orthopedic surgeon. My son needed an orthopedic surgeon for a year and we loved him. I don’t think you should continue to suffer. My sister had 5 hip replacements because mostly the doctor 20 yrs ago. She finally went to the Cleveland clinic and they gave her the name of an orthopedic surgeon near her and life got much better after that! Ask your friends what orthopedic surgeon they recommend there r some better than others! Don’t wait go straight to the orthopedic surgeon and go on line to find physical therapy or go to a pt it really helps. No need to continue suffering. I will pray for you! :o)

  2. In the recipes for the chocolate and peppermint syrup….I am wondering if you can replace the sugar with splenda or even stevia?

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
