    A while back you asked how the sugar thing was going and I failed to respond! Duh. I am techy-challenged! Anyway, I am still focused on not eating sugar and processed foods and I like the difference it makes with mood, headaches, heartburn, energy, arthritis aches, and weight and motivation. Have a great week!

    Excellent! Glad you found something to try.

    I think another thing is it feels different in your mouth, less rich, it takes time to get used too.

    I am from the UK so no idea what brands are available there, but I have tried a lot of American coffee and its just so often over roasted too dark and bitter! I was honestly surprised, staying in this fabulous fancy business hotel and the coffee was terrible! I had so much cream lol... Not really a chore I guess but not really a good idea!

    You could try looking for things labeled European roast which we generally just have lighter roasts. Or your normal American brands but looking for the words lighter roast.

    There are several stages of roasting coffee beans to make the coffee and each stage tastes different. But most US seemed to be such dark roasts. It's good for delicious creamy coffee but it's just too harsh black I think personally.

    I hope you find something that you enjoy.

    No coffee isn't good! emoticon

    Thanks for commenting on my What to Remember About Sugar blog! I need to remember more often, too. Starting tomorrow, I'm going to go one whole week without. Are you with me?
