Lemon Everything + The Coffee Experiment

Happy Sunday! I was up nice and early this morning on a mission.  Yesterday I found this recipe for Lemon Raspberry Muffins that I thought sounded delicious.  So when I did my grocery shopping yesterday I stocked up on the ingredients.  And they turned out awesome.

I enjoyed them with a new coffee experiment.  They had the prepackaged Starbucks Peppermint Mocha at the store last night, and I usually walk right past because while it’s not terrible it’s got a TON of sugar (for someone who doesn’t put sugar in their morning coffee).  But then I had a brainstorm… what if I mix regular coffee with the Peppermint Mocha (no cream) and ice it.  So far it’s a success… I’ll let you know if I regret this decision later.  It might be a pretty hefty dose of caffeine.

But before I had breakfast, I had a warm glass of water with the juice from half of a lemon.  I know many people start their day out this way and swear by it, but I never really believed the hype until the other day when I stumbled upon an article one of my Facebook friends posted:

Seems like reason enough for me.  I wasn’t really sure the best way to approach it, since “warm” is a very vague term and I use cold Brita water to drink.  So I heated up some water on the lowest setting of my tea pot (160 degrees) and it was the perfect temp:

I’m not sure my weekday morning routine can handle any more additions but I stocked up on lemons to give it a try this week!
