Healthy Coffee Recipes
Hi Friends! Do you love coffee? I do!! It’s one of my guilty pleasures that also has some great health benefits. Did you know that coffee, a bean, comes from a plant? So yes coffee is a plant-based food! Not all coffee is created equal however. We do want to stick to Organic coffee to avoid pesticides and also avoid adding artificial sweeteners & creamers t coffee. Also it’s important to be mindful about our total daily coffee consumption. The Center For Disease Control recommends no more than 400 milligrams (mg) of coffee per day for healthy adults.
Today, I’m sharing 3 ways to enjoy coffee and one of my favorite coffee brands. You all know I love a good grocery find! I hope you enjoy today’s new video and recipes!
