So, a couple of months ago, I posted a blog about an experiment I was going to try concerning making egg coffee — called Scandinavian, Swedish, or Norwegian or whatever! egg coffee. Depends on who you talk to, I suppose. Anyway, I started making this egg coffee every day because I like coffee, and I had a sneaking suspicion that coffee is one of the things that’s causing my gut to misbehave.
You know what, dear reader? It’s helped. It’s helped a lot. Okay, maybe not a lot, but there’s a noticeable difference. I can’t say that it’s cured everything that ails me — or anything that ails me for that matter — but damned if it hasn’t made a difference. My gut still bothers me, don’t get me wrong, but it doesn’t bother me as much… I mean, it’s better. Not cured, but better. I’ll take better. Every little bit and all that, right? And hey, making this coffee is kinda labor intensive (you’ll see that if you watch the video), so I get stuff done in the mornings — do my dishes, wipe down the counter, stuff I wasn’t doing before. Now there are days when I’m just too tired to bother, and I’ll drink some “low acid” instant coffee, but most mornings I’ll muddle through the process. And I’m glad for it.
Some people might think I’m “wasting” the egg by making the coffee because it gets tossed out with the grounds afterwards. But I figure so long as I’m using it, it’s not going to waste. If I had a garden, I’d compost it. But I don’t. So sorry, Charlie, it’s going in the trash.
Anyway, that’s another non-exciting blog post from me. It was on my mind and I thought I’d post it. Sometimes, it’s the little things that help, you know? And who would have thought that egg coffee would help? But it did.
The video that started it all:
Unlike Emmie (the lady in the video), I don’t put cold water in mine after boiling, but I do let it sit for a while to let the sediments settle. And I strain mine before drinking. Also, I use pre-ground Folgers, so yeah… a little different. Still, it’s good coffee.
