Coffee: It's Not Just For Breakfast Anymore

Who said it?!? Who said coffee is not good for you? Not good for a pregnant woman?

I demand an answer, because my HomeEc teacher never taught me this (Sorry, Mrs. Weyers, I'm not really bawling you out, per se . . .it's the passion of the moment.)

Today, I stand vindicated on my morning coffee. Brewed with love and zest for life daily, hearkening my mortal being to action with it's full, flavorful aroma!

Yes, today is the day I actually READ the nutritional value of coffee. Black.

Would you like to know what I've found? Would you like to be set free from the media moguls and physician assistants nationwide who downtrod our delicious brew?

Well, stand back, and prepare to received FREEDOM! [edited for space purposes only]
