After prayer and a kiss from my beloved husband, the best thing about early morning is a delicious cup of coffee. I used to indulge in half and half and sugar but those things are major no-nos on the microbiome eating plan, phase 1. Enter: the monkfruit. I’m not entirely sure exactly what this stuff is, but it’s amazingly sugar-like, so I’m happy. I’ve sort of trained myself to drink coffee black (It helps to have a nifty machine that grinds AND brews. Thank You, Cuisinart.) & slightly sweet, but sometimes I add canned coconut milk. It’s ok. It’s on the list. I checked.
