If you are like me, coffee is my go-to first thing in the morning. Sadly, most people are making their health worse by adding lots of sugar and fake creamers to their coffee, or ordering sugar-laden flavored lattes, etc.
But, coffee can be an extremely healthy and an enjoyable part of your day if you do it right.
I want to elaborate on a few of these tips and tell you exactly what I use and recommend.
To avoid artificial sweeteners and refined sugar...
I hope you already know that the less refined sugar and artificial sweeteners you consume, the better.
If you can't do that black coffee thing, consider using monk fruit to sweeten your coffee. I found out about this monk fruit from a cousin who is also a diabetic. It's the first sweetener that I've found that does not have an aftertaste.
I tried a couple of brands, but I like this one best. I usually buy it on Amazon but have found it locally at Sprouts.
On adding collagen, avoiding artificial creamers, adding grass-fed butter, and adding coconut oil...
There's a way to tackle all 4 of these recommendations with one product.
Collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies and can be found in nearly every part of the body, especially in healthy skin, joints and connective tissue.
Unfortunately, our body starts to decrease collagen production in our 20s, which leads to the appearance of sagging skin and wrinkles, joint discomfort, tendon and ligament stress, and affects eyes, nails, hair, gums, and even digestive health.
The collagen creamer I use is a delicious, keto-friendly alternative to ordinary creamer. It's enhanced with grass-fed butter and C8 medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) that is more rapidly converted into ketones than coconut oil or other MCTs, for quick, high-quality energy to fuel the brain.
Cheers to healthier coffee.
