Tempus Fugit Memento Mori

This is my secret to making it through from meal to meal during a fast. I don't think it violates the letter or spirit of the law.

1. Pray

2. Corporal Self Mortification.  I am prefer the cilice.

3.  Do things for others

4.  The Drink - I use all generic products
     a.  Fill mug with whole milk and microwave until hot
     b.  Add spoonful of instant coffee
     c.  Add sugar to taste
     d.  Stir and enjoy

The milk has some calories and fill the gut for a moment. The caffeine helps pick me up a bit.

This really helps me on a fast. Maybe it will help you.

Store bought milk is bad for you, microwaving it makes it worse. Add to that the chemically bleached sugar and you be chugging a toxic cocktail.

Interestingly I saw a program on Management TV yesterday that talked about additives. I remembered they poured copper on the milk to make it look more "creamy". As for toxicity, let's just say they had to wear a mask and gloves just to open the recipient containing the substance.

I'm pretty sure that drink violates the fast.  Only water may be taken between meals.

So, yeah.  That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

You're wrong, of course. From the FE website:

Quote
Fasting is the taking of only one full meal (which may include meat) and two smaller, meatless meals that don't equal the large one meal. No eating between meals is allowed, but water, milk tea, cofee, and juices are OK. Meat is allowed at one meal (assuming abstience isn't also expected on a given day). Traditionally, everyone over 21 years of age and under 59 years of age is bound to observe the law of fast; but the present Code of Canon Law sets the ages of 18 and 59 as the limits.

I thought I was good since it is essentially just coffee.  And if that is my two snacks that doesn't equal  a full meal arent i good?

Can you elaborate please, maybe point me to a canon law or catheschism paragraph, or other document.

You have set me straight before and I have always appreciated you help.

Thanks!

I was always under the impression that during fasting only water and bread was acceptable.  Huh?
And I live in Novus Ordo land.

You're good.  You can drink milk and coffee.  And ignore what the vegan tree hugger told you about milk.  Milk is good for you.
