I love coffee. I was pessimistic about it's effect on my health but then I deep dived into the research. Coffee has a tangible impact on helping you avoid disease and live longer. Which was music to my ears.
When it's warm, I make homemade cold brew. Which is outrageously tasty. I don't know why you can't buy the same product.
And when it's cool, I have two versions of hot coffee. One I order and one I make.
Healthy Coffee Recipes
I order long blacks with cinnamon. No sugar or dairy, just clean black coffee with one of the best sources of antioxidants.
Occasionally, when I want something more filling, I make a vegan Bulletproof. The fats from coconut oil and cacao butter give my brain energy, boost my mood and help me tackle the to-do-list.
