So, yesterday I watched this video:
Because this lady is just adorable and she’s fun to watch. Anyway, she mentions in the video that brewing coffee with an egg in it leeches out the acid and “other bitterness” and that kind of got me to thinking. One of the problems I have with my gut is (probably) an abundance of acid — which is why the acid blockers I take help. Right? I guess? Anyway, the one thing I have not been able to give up is, well, coffee. Coffee (soda and tea) is one of the first things doctors tell people with my gut condition to give up. You know, because it’s so easy to do. >_< I’ve tried, dear reader, I’ve tried.
And after I watched this video, I wondered if making coffee this way will help calm the beast that is in my digestive system. It’s kind of labor intensive though. I followed her recipe, and it turned out okay. I wouldn’t say it’s the best cup of coffee I’ve ever had, but it’s not the worst either. I generally drink my coffee black, but I had to add just a smidgen of sugar to this to make it more palatable. Maybe I need fresher eggs. ^_^
Of course, one cup of coffee will not cure what ails me. But I wonder if I switch to this for a week or so, I might see a difference in how my gut feels. Who knows? It’s worth the experiment. I think I can add ten minutes a morning to make coffee to put into a thermos for the day. Maybe. We’ll see.
