    I was typically having 2-3 French pressed cups of coffee a day. I weaned myself off of coffee by drinking a smaller portion each day. After I got down to 1/3 of a cup I found that I could easily go...

    My wife and I do the same thing maybe once a week on movie night. Pop some organic GMO free popcorn in coconut oil and use a generous amount of Kerrygold butter on it with sea salt.
