I'm sitting here with a steaming cup of hot cocoa. Did you know that chocolate is good for muscle recovery? I just got back from a bike ride and I'm freezing. I have one of those Keurig coffee machines that make one cup at a time. But I don't drink coffee. Ever. Even if I'm up working on cookies until 4am, no coffee. I figured out that coffee makes my heart go a little bonkers. It actually feels like my heart is going to jump out of my chest. So, no coffee ever. I'm hyper enough as it is. But I have a Keurig. Why, you ask. For hot cocoa. Just for hot cocoa. Weird huh. You would think I'm a chocolate fiend, but I don't even like chocolate. Well, except for Georganne's chocolate cookies. But a steaming cup of hot cocoa after a bike ride... yum. You can feel the heat going down into your stomach and it warms you up quickly. I know, I know, I should be a tea drinker. But yuck. Don't even get me started on tea. I made these bicycle cookies for my bike club that was having their end of year party.

I made this bicycle sign for in my office. I love it!
So do you start your day with coffee? Do you drink hot cocoa after a good work-out? I highly recommend it. Supposedly it helps to recover muscles. Good excuse right?
Bicycle blog background for today:
lol, my midwives gave me a bag of tea to brew and drink daily...I haven't the slightest idea what to do with it. They said to look for a tea ball at the store - I've checked Target and Walmart with no luck. I've never had tea and I'm not keen to try it so I'll just stick with "I haven't found a tea ball yet" :)ReplyDelete
If you haven't tried tea, you should give it a try. I know a lot of people like it and supposedly it is calming. I think it's just gross. Even if there is just a smidgen of it in a smoothie. Yuck. You could ask WHY they want you to drink tea though.... ewwwDelete
