Extra Cream Please….
The most difficult thing that I have been trying to overcome out of this Paleo/LCHF experience is the coffee situation.
I like coffee. For its taste, for the social attachment and often for the caffeine. I have ALWAYS ordered mine with skim or light milk. You know cos fat apparently = fat, ergo, lets avoid it all. But now after my few weeks at this (which i’ll share with you all later) and seeing my results, I can 100% say, ‘Add another dollop, please!’ The hardest thing now is the ordering – many cafe in Australia don’t carry regular pouring or think cream. They have that horrible whipped stuff that comes out of a can (which is always sweetened with sugar). I know people who literally substitute cream for milk in their latte, which = approx one cup of cream, but Im not quite there, yet. However, I am enjoying a generous pour, about 40ml, of pouring cream, added to a long black. Not only does this make it Paleo friendly, but it also makes it take amaze-balls! And keeps me satiated for hours and completely abolishes a need for a sugar ‘energy’ hit.
Now as a Nutritionist, this does kind of go against everything I have every been taught about wellness and good nutrition, especially when it relates to weight loss and health. But the times are changing and the myths are beginning to be de-bunked! So Im on a journey to help remove peoples fears around fat, sugar, diets and weight loss. I know there is a better way to enjoy our food and our life without counting or weighing. This is not how it used to be and for me, this is certainly not how I want to live.
So for now i say, pour a little more cream in my coffee and lets chat about it….
I’ll be updated my own ‘persona findings’ each week, which keep it very real and keeps me very accountable to my commitment for a different way of eating, which I hope is one more piece of evidence that you don’t need to starve to look good and be healthy.
How do you like your coffee?
