What I love about coffee is that it’s a pretty guiltless pleasure. Unless you drink it with tons of cream or as often as an Olson twin, it's a lovely addition to your mornings that actually provides some health benefits! Although I'm pretty much always down for an afternoon latte, my morning coffee routine is actually pretty standard. I whip up a cup or two at home, and often get a second on my way in to the office -- I'm not picky about brands, but there's one thing that I absolutely can't live without: Equal.
For me, regular sugar doesn’t get my coffee sweet enough -– it has to be Equal. I've even been known to sneak my own Equal packets into restaurants that don't offer them! Chad thinks this is crazy, but if we're headed to brunch at a place that doesn't have Equal, I bring my own.
BYOE! (Bring your own Equal!)
The other great thing about Equal, of course, is it doesn’t have any calories. That’s not why I drink it; I genuinely prefer Equal’s taste over sugar, but for someone whose dieting or someone with blood sugar issues, Equal is the way to go.
So I'm super excited to announce that Equal is giving one lucky Sugarlaws reader a "summer iced beverage pack" with Equal product, recipes, and other goodies, similar to what you see in my photos. Leave a comment below with your email address telling me how you like your coffee and I’ll pick a winner next week. (The giveaway will close Friday, August 7th, at noon.)
Disclosure: I partnered with Equal to bring you this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
