Three Ways to Make Your Morning Cup of Coffee Better For You

  1. Avoid adding cream or half-and-half. There is no doubt that a little diary can help take some bitterness out of a cup of coffee, but a tablespoon of light cream has almost 3 grams of fat and 30 calories! And come on, who uses just one tablespoon of cream in their coffee? If you are still not ready to bite the bullet and take your coffee black, using a nut or soybean milk can cut fat and calories. Those who don’t like milk substitutes can try adding just a pinch of salt to their coffee to help smooth out the taste.
  2. Skip the sugar and spice it up. If you are someone who adds enjoys sugar to your coffee, consider stopping. Sugar is full of empty calories and can lead to a variety of health problems. Of course, you can reach for Stevia or agave syrup for sugar-free sweetness, but why not open the spice cabinet instead? Spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamon, and even turmeric not only enhance the flavor of your coffee but add unique health benefits. Experiment to find a spice combination you enjoy!
  3. Think about how you make your coffee. The beans, water, and even the equipment you use for brewing can affect your coffee. Try to use freshly roasted and ground organic coffee. Organic coffee is not just a marketing gimmick for hipsters; it is a generally healthier option. Don’t be fooled when it comes to your water. Use only bottled or filtered water to ensure your coffee is free of chemicals and heavy metals. Finally, clean your coffee maker often. A wet and warm environment is the perfect breeding ground for mold or mildew.
