Report Time to stop lurking in Level 1 / First Time Challengers Posted January 3, 2018 Hi there, and Happy New Year! As an aspiring vegetarian (about 90% of the way there), I'm really looking forward to your posts on building energy while on a vegetarian diet. I'm also working on cutting down the simple carbs (fellow baked goods enthusiast, here!), so I'd love to hear any strategies you come up with. So far, I've got the worst offenders out of the house, but am still struggling when I'm out and about. As for the shift from coffee to tea, -- just a thought here -- you could look at rooibos tea as a non-caffeinated alternative. It's a bit more robust than green tea, and could be useful if you're struggling with the switch. Best of luck with this month's challenges!
