Coffee-one cup a day

I used to live in Seattle, the home of Starbucks and the start of the gourmet coffee craze. I used to drink extra strong coffee all day long with the occasional espresso thrown in to give me a boost. While I still love a good cup of Joe I no longer have more than the one cup in the morning, unless it is a special circumstance. I use the K-cups now, which is rather expensive and is just above average. Before going Primal I had to have a couple of cups a day because I was going to fall asleep. I thought it was because I was addicted to the caffeine and my buzz was wearing off, but now I know the real cause. Now that I no longer eat my grains for breakfast and lunch I don't have insulin crashes. I now have so much energy in the afternoons it's a little scary, for others! So, the moral of the story is that not needing coffee in the afternoon to make it through is another advantage of going Primal. Sorry Starbucks.


  1. Just thought I would let you know I found your blog via Primal Toad's and have added you to my links.

  2. Good to hear. I am interested in getting feedback even if critical. This is a new experience for me.
