4 Ways To Eat Coffee For Breakfast

They don’t say breakfast is the most important meal of the day for no reason. Eating a filling and wholesome breakfast’doesn’t just “set you up for the day”, it boosts productivity and mentally can kick-start your mood for the whole day.

Not eating breakfast will slow your metabolism, increase stress hormones, make you more susceptible to weight gain and increase your risk for heart disease, obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes, according to?the American Heart Association.

Is a coffee your breakfast every morning? Coffee beans are full of antioxidants and caffeine in moderation?can improve the memory, boost metabolism, lower the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and gout. The key phrase here is “in moderation,” and not “caffeine is good for you even though you wake up by hooking yourself up to a caffeine IV-drip and don’t eat until lunch.”

Coffee Toffee Banana Bread

Toffee bits, banana chips, instant espresso and some brewed coffee in banana bread for breakfast sounds stunning. It’s a healthy enough breakfast too with brown sugar and just a bit of olive oil.?Check out the full recipe here.?

Espresso Scones

These gluten-free, vegan breakfast scones aren’t the butter-filled, jam-smeared scones you might be used to. Espresso, coconut oil and honey instead of sugar? Sounds worth waking up for. Check out the full recipes here.

Coffee Chocolate Almond Milk

In A Donut

The Rolling Donut?create sourdough donuts?fresh in their bakery every day, using only fresh and locally sourced ingredients where possible. They also make vegan donuts! Their Coffee Lover donut?has?”a deliciously smooth?coffee and walnut filling?finished with?chopped walnuts on?a white glaze.” Nom.?While it may not be the healthiest of breakfast choices, treating yo’self is good for your health. And it’s Friday! You’ll start the healthy eating again on Monday.
