A way to supercharge coffee and make it healthy and great for your skin


After a recent Facebook post where I mentioned I put some strange ingredients in my coffee, I’ve gotten a few emails asking for more details…


I have a love/hate relationship with coffee. Basically, I love coffee but my adrenals don’t always love it! Also, since I don’t eat/drink sugar or much pasteurized dairy, it can make for some pretty boring coffee… until now.


Drink the Fat…


Bonus points to anyone who just thought of Ross!


I’d always mixed coconut oil into my coffee or tea to help make sure I consume enough healthy fats, though it always floated on the top and the texture was sometimes rough (especially when I was pregnant… the texture made me so nauseous!). At the suggestion of a friend, I tried a strange twist that has become my new favorite!


Basically, I blend coconut oil and grass-fed organic unsalted butter (yes… butter) into coffee with a dash of vanilla and sometimes a drop of stevia. The blender emulsifies the coconut oil and butter so the texture is more creamy than oily and it is a delicious way to get a boost of beneficial fats. This type of healthy coffee also gives much more extended energy throughout the day without making me jittery.


This is similar to the Bulletproof® coffee recipe recommended and popularized by Dave Asprey, though Dave uses MCT oil in place of the coconut oil. Both have their benefits, but coconut oil has more immune-boosting properties while concentrated MCT oil does more for an immediate energy and brain boost.

 

I also tried his Bulletproof Coffee which is much smoother than regular coffee and which he claims is produced carefully to avoid the presence of Mycotoxins: “Most coffee beans are processed by either leaving them in the sun and elements to wither and dry, or by pressing them and letting them ferment (spoil) to remove the outer layer of the bean. Both of these techniques are known to produce significant levels of mycotoxins as they enhance flavor. Upgraded Coffee beans are mechanically processed right after picking using only clean cold water. This more expensive process is safer because it dramatically reduces harmful molds or bacteria from impacting your health.”



I’ve also used various other forms of organic coffee with great results.

Flourless Brownies Recipe (Gluten-Free and Delicious)

Posted by Wendy Lucas on February 19, 2016 at 10:20 PM Comments comments (0)
Flourless Brownies


Black Bean Brownies Recipe

This recipe has been altered from the Original Recipe by Chocolate Covered Katie

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups black beans (1 15-oz can, drained and rinsed very well) (250g after draining)

3 tbsp cocoa powder (10g)

1/4 cup Cream of Rice  (you could substitue 1/2 cup quick oats (40g))

1/4 tsp salt

1/3 cup honey

1 stevia packet

1/4 cup coconut oil (melted)

1 egg (optional - this is what I added to change up the recipe and it turned out delicious!)

2 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 cup to 2/3 cup chocolate chips (115-140g) (Not optional. Omit at your own risk.)

Total Time: 15m

Yield: 9-12 brownies


 

Instructions 

Black Bean Brownies Recipe: Preheat oven to 350 F. Combine all ingredients except chips in a good food processor, and blend until completely smooth. Really blend well. (A blender can work if you absolutely must, but the texture—and even the taste—will be much better in a food processor.) Stir in the chips, then pour into a greased 8×8 pan. Optional: sprinkle extra chocolate chips over the top. Cook the black bean brownies 15-18 minutes, then let cool at least 10 minutes before trying to cut. If they still look a bit undercooked, you can place them in the fridge overnight and they will magically firm up! Makes 9-12 brownies. The trick with these: serve them first, and then reveal the secret ingredient. In all the times I’ve served bean desserts, not one single person who didn’t know beforehand has ever guessed!
