Mike makes fantastic cappuccino every morning, which I love (and need). The problem, however, is that the cup of warm, foamy milk which he pours into the coffee sometimes causes my blood sugar to jump to 160 or higher – that’s without any breakfast (and -of course – without any sugar in the coffee). And then I start singing carbs in my coffee, carbs in my coffee… My singing is never a good thing, especially not early in the morning. So for the sake of my blood sugar and my marriage, I’ve done some experimenting with coffee. For the last two days instead of drinking cappuccino, I’ve switched to black filter coffee with just a splash of milk. Guess what? My blood sugar has barely budged.
According to NutritionData, one cup of whole milk has 13 grams of carb. This is a fact I should have long-known.
