Married to Coffee

“Marriage is what brings us together today”– Princess Bride

Good Morning Everyone!

So how many of you have your coffee as soon as you wake up in the morning? Or do you prefer to have your coffee around lunch or after dinner with dessert? I love to have my coffee when I walk downstairs because it is a perfect way to start my morning.  I have gone through days without coffee and those days have been quite “slow.” Does that make me coffee’s ‘partner’ if I can’t go a day without it?

Is too much of a good thing really bad? Doctor’s have started to say that having even six cups of coffee are beneficial to your health.  Rob Van Dam, M.D., assistant professor in the department of nutrition at Harvard University, studied coffee and said that it contained complex compounds the can improve your health.  For instance, one cup of coffee a day can reduce the risk of getting Type 2 diabetes by 7 percent and if you drink as many as 5 cups of coffee a day, you reduce your risk at getting Alzheimer’s disease by 65 percent.

So, don’t go a day without your ‘partner’ of a coffee cup and your dose of good health! I will say that I am married to something that is delicious and full of caffeine. Make the Lowcountry Blend your new partner!
