Chicory actually contains a lot of carbs and that's why 🙂 Percolator coffee has about zero carbs 🙂


Ah. We make up for that elsewhere. (One ww slice of toast for breakfast, no other wheat on that day, that sort of thing.) DH is holding his daily carbs to around 150. He isn't really on a low carb, high fat diet, but very nearly so. That and waiting at least 5 hours between meals has done wonders for his blood chemistry. His triglycerides and HDL are now texbook, his A1C below pre-diabetes level.

 

Anyway, best wishes on your diet goals. 🙂

I use to love chicory as well, however, since I started banting, it is a no go. I have found chocolate flavored percolator, thus my preferred choice but also love Italian and mocha java 🙂


@e793364k  Huh. Mary, I know that banting is a low carb high, fat diet, but what's the deal with chicory and banting?

@e793364k Chicory. That's what makes the perfect cuppa in my humble opinion: dark roast with added chicory. Brewed or French press, my perparation options of choice. 🙂 Although I do percolate it when we camp, and that is always a welcome change from routine. 🙂

I think it takes a bit more than coffee to ensure success, but it's a good start ! But... if you own the business..
