    Default eating coffee grinds

    Is it bad to eat a tablespoon of coffee grinds instead of drinking it?

    will you still get the same energy effect from the caffeine by eating them versus drinking the coffee?

    i drink coffee mostly but was thinking about swallowing them with a chaser of diet coke before the gym whenever i dont feel like drinking all that liquid?

    According to this video, "The House" eats his coffee every morning.

    The only advantage in my opinion would be convenience and ease of use...although raw coffee grounds don't sound to appealing to my taste buds

    If any of you are questioning if coffee grounds can be eaten, and what the effects are, don't forget chocolate covered espresso beans.

    Hey look, they're edible after all! I've eaten them, but I prefer whole beans as opposed to grounds.

    When I make my chocolate protein powder thick so it's like pudding, if I add in coffee grounds it tastes hella good.

    Default coffee

    well i like drinking my coffee also,,,,,but sometimes when i dont have time to sip boiling coffee or if im in a hurry i was thinking about just throwin down a tbsp or so and chasing it down with a diet coke.

    i am experimenting to see if i get the same energy boost from the caffeine as i do when drinking it.

    and im talking about regular coffee grinds NOT INSTANT!!!!

    yeah i do it all the time, no bloating from the enormous amounts of fluid if your also have a pwo shake, and water during the workout. plus drinking down a 100 degree drink makes for a hot workout.

    Oh HELL YEAH! I love those little buggers. Especially if the chocolate is super dark, then I don't feel like I am cheating!

    I haven't had them for about 8 years, and that's a good thing for me.

    But, I love coffee. I'l eat beans, suck on beans, or just drink coffee. The latter is my favorite.

    It's been a few years for me as well. Now they are on my mind. Trying to figure out a way to rationalize buying some in the next couple of days.
