We all know that sugar is a disaster. Its a disaster to our health, skin, and over all body functions. It does NOTHING good for us. Too much of it can alter our mood swings, cause obesity, and challenge our health in many ways. If you are a morning coffee drinker , and love to put SUGAR in your coffee, try to use these amazing health boosters instead. They all have amazing health benefits, and can help our bodies thrive without weighing it down. We want ot feel good and have good focus through out our days.
1. GRASS FED BUTTER OR GHEE- Im sure you have all heard of the health benefits of butter in your coffee. It is an amazing energy booster, and it can help with focusing all day long. It gives our brains that fatty boost first thing in the morning upon waking. It is full of good healthy fat, and its what our bodies need. Its loaded with a great ratio of omega 3’s and omega 6’s.
2.CINNAMON- Who doesnt love cinnamon? Yummy! This has always been a warm spice that people crave during the cold seasons, and you see it served in spas due to the antioxidants that it has. It is loaded with anti- inflammatory properties to say the least. This sprinkled on top of your coffee will make you crave that next cup.
3.CAYENNE POWDER – Ok this one is wonderful, but you dont use a whole lot. It is a nice spice that helps with getting your mind going in the morning, and does offer a bit of a kick to your cup of joe. Perfect combo : cayenne and grass fed butter.
4.Collagen – ok we all love collagen. Its the protein that helps with keeping us youthful looking and has great gut health benefits. Mixing a bit of this in our morning coffee taste a bit like butter. It will help keep our gut healthy and that glow to our skin.
5.Protein Powder – ok so you didn’t think you could put protein powder in your coffee? Wrong! If you are using a flavored powder such as vanilla or chocolate it only adds to the delicious taste. Ill take a vanilla latte please!

The Food Movement is for real, and they are moving BUTTER into coffee these day. Yes , that’s right! I know some of you are cringing at that thought, but it is the best thing for your brain. If you are one that doesn’t eat breakfast, you need to be adding butter or ghee to your cup of joe. Our brains are made up of 60% fat. We need our brains to function in the mornings, and if you aren’t eating a healthy breakfast, then your brain will be slumped, along with other things. The butter also prevents overwhelming the digestive system. It provides the necessary fats that our bodies need. Butter in your coffee also helps with low energy throughout the day, and crashing and burning. Who likes that feeling anyway? If you are one that gets the jitters from having too much coffee, it actually dampens the effects of the caffeine.
IF you are one that wants to maximize your antioxidant benefits, then butter is the key. Butter only has minimal amounts of milk protein. IF you are taking supplements along with a healthy diet, then the butter will not interfere with the absorption of your antioxidants. It actually may increase the benefits since fats help your body absorb fat -soluble antioxidants. If this is new to you, you may want to start out slow. Start out with a small amount of butter. Your body may not be use to it at first. Everyone has different body chemistries. This may be a new wave in your health regimen and I promise you , you will be adding so many benefits to your whole self. Ditch the creamer, and add butter!
If you are anything like me, the first thing I make in the morning is my cup of coffee. di you know that coffee has many health benefits? I know there are many skeptics out there when it comes to coffee, due to the caffeine content, but actually making yourself a glass a day has some proven health benefits.
I know that caffeine to many is highly addictive, but I believe its because its being abused by taking horrible supplements that claim will make you lose weight, or taking caffeine in large doses. I’m NOT talking about that, because those supplements should be off the shelves. I’m talking about making a cup a morning, before your workout. I know that when I drink my cup before my workout, I seem to have a better workout , because I work out harder.
Coffee is known to improve physical performance, because it can empower your energy levels . You feel less tired , and you have more energy. I’m not saying to go and drink 5 cups a day ( which I know some people that live on it), which I feel is a horrible habit. This in all elevates your mood, and energy.
Coffee also has many health benefits that doesn’t seem to be talked about a whole lot, and as I’m not a doctor, I have been trained in many health classes, that I have realized the benefits. Caffeine helps in the fat burning process. I’m sure you knew that due to all the crazy “fat burning” supplements that you see . It can boosts your metabolism by 3-11%.It can lower your risk of diabetes, by as much as 50%.
Coffee also has many vitamins in it that is required by your body. It is packed with Riboflavin, Pantothenic acid, and niacin among a few. Don’t pass your coffee maker thinking that coffee is terrible, because it is NOT! You can also get caffeine from great teas also, which are very healthy. Try to alternate if possible. You will be doing your body good.
