Hello All, I so very much want to make this style of eating work for life BUT, I have a eensy problem, I love coffee, I love flavors in my coffee! Anyone expieremented and found a yummy, healthy, flavor creamer idea? salted caramel mocha and peppermint mochas r my favorite and I really have tried to "create" but not having much success, also I am alergic to dairy .... anyone???
Here is what I do. I put a bit of cocoa in the bottom of the mug. Add a bit of coffee and stir to a paste. This helps the cocoa blend in better. Add the rest of the coffee. Add almond milk, stevia, and peppermint extract. Enjoy! For those not allergic to dairy, I have found that 1 tsp of cream makes this soooo much better!
I have been enjoying my E/FP coffee with a couple Tbsp almond milk, maybe 1/2 of a drop of orange oil (I touch the rim of the bottle with my finger and then just dip it into the coffee. This stuff is seriously strong.), and a few drops of almond extract. This has been my favorite way to have coffee w/out cream so far. I'm looking forward to finding out some new ways too.

I just made my own nondairy creamer and I'm so excited so I had to share
1 c almond milk 1 c flax milk (or coconut milk, which would make it an S) 1/2 tsp glucomannon (or more for desired thickness) 1 tsp vanilla (or other extract for flavoring) sweetener of choice (I used 2 packets of Truvia, which would be 1 1/2 tsp)
Heat almond and flax milk briefly (I used the microwave) so the glucomannon would dissolve. Stir in vanilla and sweetener. It is so yummy!
This would be an E or FP for almond/flax and S for using coconut milk, correct?

tinac: Thanks cashen10!

tinac: 2yorkiemama- I know that amount would still be FP. Only one tbsp should be around 1.5 fat and less than 1 carb. I was advised by Pearl I could have that amount on S or E days and be okay. I would be careful to not go over fat or carbs on your breakfast

2yorkiemama: tinac and steffanie3 - thanks very much! I really appreciate your time! I in day 4 of FP and seems to be going well. I am so used to eating fat, this couple of days is harder. I'm not a carb girl, really. It's hard for me to think it's ok. EEK!

steffanie3: Off the top of my head donawyo, I wouldn't, unless it is a homemade. I came away from that chapter really focusing on superfoods that week, so homemade with some great deep S fats would work
