In preparation for my upcoming, one-week cleanse starting February 22nd (Ash Wednesday), I just gave up coffee…again.  Now, I know that coffee leaves as acid ash, and the creamer–also acidifying–gunks up my system with sugar.  I would never drink coffee black because I don’t like the taste.  I’d never drink creamer by itself either:  Too […]
