Welcome to Life Through Bifocals

Life is not always clear and easy to figure out. So grab a cup of coffee and your bifocals and let's see what we can see.

Quick Tip Friday: Chocolate, Caramel, Vanilla Chai

As much as I love my morning coffee - and I DO Love my morning coffee, come evening I want a nice cup of Vanilla Chai from Starbucks. Unfortunately, living a low carb lifestyle means I need to find a substitute for that high carb treat. Here is what I make

Chocolate, Caramel,Vanilla Chai Tea

1 tea bag Celestial Seasonings Chocolate Caramel Enchantment tea bag (Honey Vanilla works well also add Sugar Free Caramel syrup to it)

1 teaspoon sugar free vanilla syrup

Heavy cream

Whipped cream

Boil your water and pour it over the tea bag in you cup. Once it's as strong as you like take out the tea bag and add the sugar free vanilla syrup and heavy cream. Top with whipped cream and enjoy! The whipped cream will melt into your tea and man-oh-man is this good! Build a fire, watch a movie and I promise you will not miss the high carb, high calorie, high sugar, high priced drink from that other place!

Have a great weekend and I'll see you Monday!

BTW here is Becke and I dancing. I can't figure out to shorten it, we got 2 dancers so just stop the tape after we are done - we are first. Becke is 10 1/2 year old yellow Lab and YES the camera adds 10 pounds to each of us!


  1. Love the dancing video! I've heard you talk about dancing with Becke but have never seen it. Great!

  2. Brava Lynn Marie and Becke!
    I SO enjoyed watching you two dance again - and to a song I love for freestyle. You both looked great; clearly your low carb diet is really working for you. Did you hear me clapping? I was applauding you!

  3. Becke looks like he/she is having a great time! Beautiful dog!
    I'm going to try the chai, but it's going to have to get a little colder here for me to try it!


Thank you for stopping by today and if you left me a comment, thank you twice!
