I love coffee. It’s not so much the actual cup of coffee that I love as the experience of coffee.
I grew up sharing Saturday morning conversations with my grandmother over coffee. Of course this coffee was more cream and sugar than coffee, but that is totally beside the point.
Coffee is cozy, comforting, and carries such wonderful memories for me.
A couple of years ago I began to experience extreme fatigue. I tried everything I knew to try. Plus, as you know, I was also battling infertility and each morning of fatigue was another reminder that I was tired for nothing – no baby filled my womb.
One day, I didn’t get around to drinking my morning coffee (gasp!). Surprisingly, by noon that day, I realized I had more energy than I had experienced in weeks. This forced me to consider if coffee was having a negative effect on my body.
Today, I’m over at Keeper of the Home discussing the pros and cons of coffee, how it affected my health, as well as some really good alternatives to coffee. I plan to talk more about my journey through fatigue and infertility, and this is a start. If you love coffee as much as I do, then click here to read more about how coffee affects your health.
