Some Healthy Ideas Over Coffee
Full fat milk would have been the better choice in all of these drinks if it was unpasteurized and if our cows weren’t eating genetically modified corn and given hormones (both of those pass on through their milk by the way).Here are some of the healthified coffee drinks that we have found to be satisfying for all tastes, and you can impress grandma by the simplicity of your choices – better yet, make here one of these at home, and if you like, try using oat, almond, or hazelnut milk for variety or tastes and textures (slight differences there).Soy is not healthy in any form but its whole pod or fermented form.Don’t consume it – even organic soymilk is very mucus forming.
5 Nonfat Mocha
Okay I saved this one for last for all of you who are sighing with disappointment in the lack of frappucino-esque drinks.Mocha is not healthy, so simmer down.It is healthier, as specified in the title of this article. If you’re going to do a dessert-y coffee, do mocha, as it is less chemicalized than the syrups and the cocoa does bring a few benefits.It’s also not too high in calories – but think small size people, not the new big gulp-sized coffee drinks they’re introducing. So whether you’re a coffee fanatic and just want to healthify your choices, or just drink whatever sounds good, there’s you select choices that won’t flood your body with sugars, saturated fats and chemicals. If you can, make sure you drink water to offset the diuretic effect of caffeine and to rehydrate your cells.Coffee is acidic, so offset the acid by eating more greens and other alkaline foods like fruit and vegetables.
4 CaféAu Lait
A café au lait, or as Starbucks people call it, a ‘misto,’ is simply half coffee, half milk. Don’t listen to the Netherlandians when they call it “koffie verkeerd” or ‘incorrect coffee.They are incorrect.Coffee is excellent with milk, especially with a drop of agave or a square of raw sugar.
Originally meaning ‘marked,’ or ‘stained,’ a macchiato is a simply an espresso with a ‘mark’ of milk foam, generally a tablespoon unless specified otherwise.Very low-calorie, and great for those of us who love the taste of coffee for what it is, and don’t try to hide it among other flavors.
2 Nonfat Cappuccino
Another no-brainer.Espresso, and generally half milk, half foam, but if you’re picky, ask for a dry cap for more foam and less milk, and a wet cap for more milk and less foam.Or just ask for a latte with foam…
1 Nonfat Latte
So this is a no-brainer.Espresso, nonfat milk, and a sweetener of your choosing.Just make sure you don’t use chemical sweeteners, as they lodge in fat cells when your organs can’t pass them through quickly enough. Don’t add flavor, even ‘skinny’ flavors – their full of chemicals that will contribute to the inefficiency of your organs, eventually destroying your flawless looks anyway.
