Have you ever been handed a steaming mug of coffee, taken one sip and headed straight to calorie-laced creamers to mask the bitter undertones of the brew?
You are far from alone. Approximately 43% (Researchco) of Canadians take their coffee with a generous pour of creamer.
Most creamers state a single serving at 1 table spoon for 35 calories, 1.5 grams fat, 6 grams sugar.
Eat This, Not That! (eatthis.com) claims that an unmeasured/free form pour of creamer can actually be equal to four times that amount - 4 tablespoons or ¼ cup, which could lead to up to an additional 15-pound weight gain in a single year!
How can you keep your daily caffeine fix and save your calorie intake for your chocolate cravings?
Try a higher quality coffee bean that has been roasted to highlight tasting note flavors that appeal to you so you are less inclined to try to mask the coffee flavor with an overly generous pour of creamer.
Urban Calm's coffee is roasted intentionally to highlight chocolate and caramel that provide a smooth, balanced and creamy drinking experience. We aim to remove the bitter undertones that often come with many roasted coffees.
