    Questions – I haven’t received my order yet but I would like to know if coffee and tea are part of the plan. Also, what can be used as a creamer for coffee?

    I am very excited and looking forward to starting.

    Hi Sandy,

    Coffee and tea are permissible on the plan. You can use almond or coconut milk as a creamer. You’re allowed one cup which would count toward your daily optional liquid serving. 1/2 cup of hemp milk is also permitted but I’ve never used it so don’t know how it tastes. I hope this helps!

    Forgot to share a recipe for a delicious cup of coffee that is plan friendly:

    1 tablespoon of Cafe Du monde Coffee with Chicory – you can find this brand on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Cafe-Du-Monde-Coffee-Chickory/dp/B0000E5JIU/ref=sr_1_2_s_it?s=grocery&ie=UTF8&qid=1493499129&sr=1-2&keywords=cafe+du+monde+coffee
    8oz water
    1 cup of coconut milk heated in the microwave
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    Stevia to taste
    Dash of salt

    Brew coffee
    Add all other ingredients
    Enjoy!

    I hope you like it!

    Hi Sandy, On page 25 of the book, WATCH WHAT YOU ARE DRINKING: “If you must have something other than water make it unsweetened and decaffeinated hot tea. One cup of coffee each day is allowed , but it DOES NOT count towards your daily hydration.”

    That being stated…

    I have 1 cup coffee, 1/4 cup almond milk, Stevia to taste. I use the other 3/4c Almond milk* in my Protein shake after work out. I have been doing this since day one which was a week ago. I have lost a few ounces under 6 lbs

    *I cup 30cal Almond Milk (I use Costco Unsweetened Organic Almond milk at 30 cal per serving) which is an Optional Liquid

    I hope this helps. Also, Look in the RECIPES section. It REALLY helps you get creative with your foods.

    BEST OF LUCK
