Get In Shape Without The Gym
Toby here, I’m just enjoying some morning coffee like a lot of you guys out there are probably doing too.
And, like most guys out there, I used to always put in cream and sugar – it was a no-brainer… But, when was the last time you looked at the ingredients in those creamers?
Look at this – you see that right here? That’s soy… And if you haven’t heard me tell you this a million times over, soy is estrogenic – meaning it literally kills your testosterone.
And while cream and sugar is better than artificial creamers, it still makes your coffee unhealthy. If you can learn how to love black coffee, it’ll tremendously help you to lose fat.
I challenge you to start using these creamer alternatives in your coffee for the next week
First thing I have here is Cinnamon.
If you want to maximize flavor without adding extra calories, cinnamon is a top-notch add-in. Brew your coffee with a cinnamon stick so the jazzed-up spice has time to infuse, or add a dash to your cup to enjoy your own version of a holiday specialty drink sans all the sugar. According to research from the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, it’s packed with manganese, iron, and calcium and has been known to reduce inflammation, help lower sugar and triglyceride levels in the blood, soothe nausea, and aid in fat burning.
Next we have some Vanilla Extract.
If you love the taste of coffee creamers, but don’t love all the processed sugar and added fat, try vanilla extract or vanilla bean for a hit of flavor. Add a few drops of pure extract to your pot of coffee or add a vanilla bean to your coffee grounds so the flavor infuses before you brew. It’s known for being a brain superfood in its ability to boost mental performance, mood, and overall brain health. Vanilla is also used to calm stomach aches (due to hunger pangs and digestion), reduce joint pain, relieve stress, even cure male impotency.
#3 on the list is Unsweetened Coconut Milk
Unsweetened coconut milk is the perfect add-in if you’re lactose intolerant, cutting out dairy for dietary purposes (i.e. the Paleo diet), or just want a low-calorie milk substitute course coconut milk adds a light coconut flavor to coffee and lightens up your brew, but it’s also closest in texture to whole milk. You can combine the vanilla extract with the coconut milk to create a homemade, lower calorie creamer.
Now, here we have some Ground Ginger.
You might not use ginger a lot in everyday cooking, but think about it this way: If you like gingerbread, you’ll love ginger coffee. Add a few slices of fresh ginger root or a couple tablespoons (or teaspoons depending on your container) of ginger powder to your coffee grounds. Aside from treating gas and bloating, ginger root can also help soothe sore throats and colds, ease the pain from arthritis, and reduce inflammation, lowering your risk for prostate cancer, according to research published in Herbal Medicine.
With the holidays coming up, we have some Peppermint Oil here.
Add peppermint oil extract to your brew, but add sparingly; peppermint can be overbearing in high amounts. You may not associate peppermint oil with health benefits, but it contains a bevy of vitamins and minerals such as iron, magnesium, calcium, and vitamins A and C.
Next-to-last is some Maple Extract.
Try adding a bit of maple extract to your coffee grounds for a sweet kick. The extract is lower in sugar and not nearly as thick as natural maple syrup, so you get all the flavor you love without the sticky mess.
Last, but not least, is Raw Cacao Powder.
Add about one teaspoon of raw ground cacao powder to the bottom of your cup before brewing, or purchase cocoa beans and grind them with your go-to coffee beans to create your own specialized grounds. Research published in the journal Circulation also found cocoa to have anti-inflammatory benefits, which have a beneficial effect on insulin resistance, and blood platelet function.
