How To: Paleo Tea Time

Maybe this seems silly, or maybe it seems like it's not actually a thing, but it's totally a thing, at least in my house. We have tea in the afternoons. I absolutely love having a fancy little tea party at home with my mom or one of my girlfriends.

Giving up milk was really hard for me at first, because I was both an avid latte and tea-with-sugar-and-cream drinker. Black tea and black coffee just didn't do it for me at first, but after a little bit of training and a whole lot of time and commitment and espresso shots, I was fine with it.

The trick to changing a habit is to make the new habit really special. I do that with my mom's beautiful bone china tea set and really good local honey. And then one day I discovered So Delicious' Coconut Milk Creamer, and it was like the part of me that used to love milk had died and finally made it to dairy-free heaven.

+ tea
(lately I've been loving this vanilla rooibos)
+ coconut milk
(get the kind that comes in a little carton like half & half)
+ local honey
(we get ours at the Roanoke Natural Foods Co-Op)
+ a Paleo treat or two (try these cookies)


It's pretty simple. But it can totally make your day better.
