The Tedious Job of Updating This Blog

Happy Nutritionists Nuggets has been on the web since mid-2006. I was a new blogger when I started this blog, which is clear as I look back at the earliest posts and find grammar and spelling errors, and a writing style that is not what it is today.

Because of this I decided to go through each of my posts, between 300-400 of them, and am finding many problems, like links that are no longer valid or need updating, errors in spelling, images with no credit given, and the list goes on.

So for the coming weeks, my task will be to delete a few inaccurate or obsolete posts, update links, and correct errors as I work way through from 2006 to 2016. I can't believe it's been 10 years!

April 12, 2016 Update: It's finally finished! All posts have been reviewed and cleaned up. It was tedious, but so needed! Please let me know in a comment if you notice something that still needs attention, and thank you for your patience.

Coffee for Anxious People

You may be expecting me to talk about caffeine free coffee, but for me, coffee made from Arabica Beans is perfect for those of us who have become sensitive as a result of dealing with the consequences of the stresses of life. 

It is better for those who are more inclined toward anxiety than others. If, like myself, you are one of those people, you do not need the extra jitters that come from the amount of caffeine in many coffees.

When I order a cup of coffee or buy coffee in the store, I look right past the packaging and everything else to whether or not the coffee is Arabica Bean Coffee

While many are out looking for coffee that packs a punch, I'm just looking for a refreshing wake-up or lift that doesn't send my heart into palpitations and cause me to feel anxious. 

The reason that coffee made from Arabica Beans is better for anxious people is that, in general, it contains a little more than half the amount of caffeine found in other types of coffee that have not had he caffeine removed.

For me it's simple, the proof is in the fact that I can drink it while I can't drink "regular" coffee. And my husband and I prefer the flavor. 

Disclaimer: If you have been told by your doctor not to drink coffee because of it's affect on your heart, I would not try this unless you have discussed it with your doctor.

We Tried a Keurig and are Back to a Drip Coffee Maker

We Tried a Keurig and are Back to Drip Coffee Maker

This isn't a review, necessarily, just a personal experience related to using a Keurig vs an automatic drip coffee maker.

A while back, there was a very special offer made to Kindle Fire owners to buy a Keurig for only $20 dollars, including a box of K-cups. It was an unbelievable deal, so we went for it. 

Before that time, we used the usual automatic drip coffee maker. After about a month of using the Keurig, we decided that it was tedious making single cups every time we wanted a cup of coffee. We missed brewing a big pot of our favorite brand and having a pot full of coffee available to pour from throughout the day. 

So, what did we do? We packed up the Keurig for storage and put back the automatic drip coffee maker, and haven't use the Keurig since except for a special occasion or two. We use it for company, but have no interest in using it on a regular basis.

I know we may be odd folks to some who love the newest appliances, but we are just too old school, I guess. Just yesterday I got a sample of soup that could be made with a Keurig by putting the dried veggies and noodles into a cup, and all that is in the K-cup is broth...now how is that any easier than putting a single packet with all of the ingredients in a cup and adding water boiled in a tea kettle? 

Don't get me wrong, I love some technological advances, but others cause more trouble and trash to pollute the environment than I'm interested in dealing with.
