Hot Tips for Making Healthy Coffee

Executive summary about hot tips for making healthy coffee By John Kirzno

It's possible for coffee to taste good, without it being good for you. Here are some helpful tips to make your homemade coffee as nutritious as possible:

1. Substitute soy milk. 

While soy milk is full of vitamins, it allows you to avoid the high amount of fat contained in dairy milk. And even though it's a healthy option, soy milk is rich and full, so you won't have to sacrifice taste for health. Also, some people choose soy milk because it doesn't involve the use of animals to produce the milk. That can be a big issue.

2. Use fresh beans. ->

This is absolutely, positively important if you want your coffee to be healthy coffee. One of the best ways to guarantee this is to roast your own beans. Even before roasting them, make sure that the green coffee beans are stored in an airtight container, inside a cool, dry area. And after you've roasted the coffee beans, use them within two days afterwards. That will allow the beans to retain their freshness.

3. Be cautious if you're sensitive to caffeine.

Clinical studies show that caffeine can certainly provide various health benefits for its drinkers. However, some people experience adverse health effects when they drink beverages with caffeine. If you're one of those people then it's highly advisable that you either limit the amount of caffeinated coffee that you drink, or drink decaffeinated coffee instead.

4. Add spices to the coffee before you start brewing it. 

This is one of the most creative and effective ways to make healthy coffee. While several types of spices are available, do your research to find some popular options. Cinnamon is one of various spices that people frequently add to their cup of java.

5. Avoid adding too much sugar and cream. 

This can cause the coffee to have too many calories and too much fat. If you're going to use sugar, then use raw sugar. And instead of using cream, consider using soy milk instead. This will provide the creaminess of cream, without the high amount of fat.

6. Consider a using coffee for weight-loss. 

Clinical studies have shown that caffeinated coffee can boost your metabolism-and thus result in weight loss. So if you're on a diet, then consider a one-day water and black coffee diet (using fresh beans, of course).
