|My cup of choice for today!|
A fellow tea drinker inquired if I had ever tasted Vanilla Chai tea. Well, I hadn't, so the next time I was at the store I looked for some. I picked up a box of Bigelow Vanilla Chai Tea. I steeped it with water the for the first cup, but while I was waiting I was reading the box...
After I enjoyed this cup of loveliness I started thinking about the extra calories this little delight would add to my day. Even non-fat milk has 86 calories a cup, and my big old cup of choice holds almost 2 cups of liquid. That is a whopping 172 calories for a cup of tea -- not exactly a caloric bargain. Sigh... why do all the good tasting things have to be fattening??
Saddened by the loss of yet another yummy treat I started pondering my options. Today my tastebuds and my waistline are back in happy land because I discovered sugar-free vanilla creamer that has only 30 calories per serving. I snapped that right off the shelf in the store today, made a mad dash home and started the tea pot. It was delightful! Very similar to the higher calorie original. I have had two cups this morning and probably have a pretty good caffeine buzz going! I would probably be dangerous if I did this every day!
I just had to share because it made me happy, and happy is good.
Have a great day!
