drink more coffee

Awhile back I did a post on coffee.. it was a long while back and I am to lazy to find the post. Needless to say it had something to do with a daily cup of coffee helping with weight loss. To that end lately I have been drinking my coffee black, which I don't think I like so much. It's palatable, but it's so much more enjoyable with a little bit of creamer. And how much can that extra 30 calories or so really hurt? At least I'm not a creamer AND sugar person...

Today I find yet another article on how drinking Coffee has good health benefits. Works for me!! The more excuses I can find to continue with my morning 10oz cup the better. Though if you read carefully the article tells you to have four cups, I'm not sure if I can drink four cups a day... not black anyway. Add back in the creamer though and I could do morning coffee and afternoon coffee with no heartache what-so-ever.

My personal favorite part of the article:

Your brain on coffee

Coffee may be good for the brain, too. A study earlier this year by neuroscientists at the University of Lisbon showed that drinking coffee can help to prevent the neural degeneration associated with brain disorders and aging. The scientists found that drinking up to four cups of coffee a day over a long period of time actually prevented the deterioration of memory.

OMG I haven't read your entry yet, but here's the CUTEST cafe just five minutes from the school! I had a cup that looked almost exactly like the second one above, only with two marshmallows on top.

Marshmallow Latte!

I need to start taking pictures (sorry!).

Oh, and the owner is adorable! Unfortunately he's married. *sigh*
