Ode to Coffee
The day after my 21-day cleanse started, I received one of the very best Christmas presents of all time...a mack daddy espresso making, bean grinding and milk frothing machine. I was so excited that I could barely contain myself...then it hit me. I still have 20 days of NO COFFEE!!!! Murphy's law was in full force. It was devastating.
I love coffee.
I love the smell of it.
I love how warm and inviting it is.
I love the way it tastes.
I love how I feel when I have it.
I even have a perfect coffee mug that is lightweight but nice and big.
Sounds like addiction doesn't it? That's because it is! The best part: I don't even drink fully caffeinated coffee because of my heart!
It has now been one week with no coffee. I had a headache for four days - but now it's gone. I have been dreaming of coffee every night. In fact, when someone is drinking coffee next to me I find myself leaning over toward them trying to get a whiff.
Each cup of my detoxing roasted dandelion tea I drink is growing on me, but you'd better believe the day the cleanse is over I am revving up that espresso machine and sitting down with a big almond milk, half cafe latte. Yum.
Until then, try not to sit too close, or I just might inappropriately stick my nose in your coffee!
