Joan, glad to hear you diabetes in under good control.

Not having a sweet tooth makes me care less about sugar. I also can't stand cream in my coffee....I use a tiny bit of powdered milk, like about a 1/4 tsp. per large mug.

Randy, yes, but doing so with smaller amounts of sugar in each cup of coffee. I had my six-month check-up this week, and all my blood chemistry was well within the normal range. I lost a significant amount of weight. We surmised the loss was due to eating many more fresh vegetables because both Laura and Larry have developed food allergies to gluten. I make up for the lost carbohydrates with more fresh fruits and vegetables. We have each lost weight. 

Laura makes us a fruit smoothie each morning, and although it is high in carbs, she uses mostly apples, blueberries, and other berries. We follow the glycemic index as a guide when making food choices. My diabetes is under good control with this regimen.

Good morning, all! 

Started my day off with fried string potatoes with an egg on top. I'm getting close to getting my coffee strength right (with my new coffee maker).

I'm back to eating more sugar than I should. Joan, how are you doing? Are you still trying to cut back?

Comment by Joan Denoo on April 27, 2018 at 7:14pm

Randy, I tried to go sugar-free yesterday and I only could do half a day. By five-O-clock, I felt exhausted, brewed me a fresh cup of French press and had it with cream and sugar.

Joan, you’ve poured boiling water over teabags, and you’ve probably made ‘sun tea’.

But for being brewed in a fridge, and having a less acidic taste than hot-brewed coffee, cold-brewed coffee is analogous to sun tea.

And now, seeing the above analogy, I will try ‘sun coffee’. I will brew my next batch of coffee at room temperature.

Good for you, Joan! Sometimes, it's just a test of will power. However, in your case--and mine, too, for that matter--you can always use the excuse of "being old"--that it doesn't matter anymore! I suppose it depends on whether you plan to live an extra 5 years or more (by taking better care of yourself).

Last year, my plan was every other day without sugar. That worked up to a point. On the days with sugar, I over consumed. Not the right idea.

Tom, are there any advantages to cold-brewed coffee? I like cold coffee and usually drink last nights coffee for breakfast. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on April 24, 2018 at 3:18pm

Randy, you seem slim and trim to me with all your long walks and careful management of your intake. I salute you. 

Perhaps a DAY without sugar, but a whole month would be beyond my ability to resist. 

I had coffee with cream and sugar this morning. OK, tomorrow is the day...NO SUGAR on April 25. 

Comment by Randall Smith on April 24, 2018 at 7:12am

Patricia, you are probably correct.

My first pot of coffee was okay--nothing spectacular. I'll tinker around with the ratios. I'm not a coffee snob anyway.

No Danish quite yet, Joan. Tomorrow marks my final day of a month (4 weeks) without sweets--no cookies, ice cream, chocolate, etc. I did make some sugar free desserts like a recent peach cake. The peaches were sweet enough to satisfy my craving. I lost 3 pounds, by the way, and I'm thin enough.
