For All of You Sweet Dreamers: Holiday Coffees & Creamers
Fall is a magical time of the year. The leaves change, the weather begins to cool, the first inklings of the joyous Holiday season ahead start to appear...including a barrage of sweets, treats, and sugar-laden eats. For anyone, it can be a little overwhelming, but for someone trying to lose weight - it can often seem almost impossible to survive the Holidays on a weight loss program.
The good news: IT’S NOT IMPOSSIBLE! How you do on your Holiday weight loss journey begins in Fall. Fall sets the tone for the next 3.5 months of activity and celebration. Our goal is to make sure that you continue the momentum you’ve had going all along, and what better way to do that than through our favorite morning drink: Coffee!
The best news of all - coffee is 100% program friendly (HALLELUJAH!). And it creates a great base for some delicious Fall-flavored variations. We say take a good thing (coffee) and make it better - so you won’t be feeling like you’re missing out on anything when it comes to those other temptations!
Usually, we coffee drinkers fall into two camps when we think about adding flavor: either we prefer the richer taste of coffee and just want to flavor black coffee or we love our flavored creamers. No matter where you land on that coffee spectrum, we’ve got the fall-inspired ideas to please any palette.
For those of you who prefer to keep your coffee blacker, check out these Delicious Coffee Recipes! There’s a fantastic Pumpkin Spiced Coffee variation in there that’s simply delicious this time of year - without having to venture into the realm of oversweet creamers and additives. Additionally, your local grocery store can be a great source of fall flavored coffee beans or grounds! Some of our favorites are pictured. Bonus: many of these flavors can be purchased in beans, grounds, or K-Cups!
Maybe you’re a creamer gal (or fella). Don’t worry - we’ve got something for you here, too! Because traditional creamers are not plan-friendly, we spent some serious time in the MRC Kitchen coming up with plan-friendly alternatives...and we think we’ve hit the nail on the head with these Holiday Coffee Creamers.
Take control of your sweet tooth this Holiday season by starting every day with your favorite Holiday flavor!
