This Morning Coffee Will Energize Your Day
Do you ever just feel tired, sluggish, and lack energy in the morning? Why is that? You slept 8-10 hours, had your morning cereal and hydrated. A lack of energy in the morning could be because you are missing your essential fatty acids.
Fats give you energy. Yes, you heard that right. Essential fatty acids help the body function, and allow your body to absorb nutrients and vitamins.
Growing up, ghee and grass-fed butter were staples in my household. As ghee converts into butyric acid (aka, the primary fuel used by the gut cells themselves), it actually allows the lining of your gut to be more resilient. Grass-fed butter, on the other hand, was considered gold.
Grass-fed butter is a wonderful source of vitamin A - an important mineral for immunity, vision, and reproduction. Grass-fed butter contains a higher percentage of unsaturated fats and higher in omega 3 fatty acids in comparison to regular butter. And as a highlight, it contains vitamin K2, which is essential to support bone health by signaling your bones to absorb more calcium.
My Naturopath mother and Physician sister raised me on these two items, and I am so excited to indulge in Organika's Superbrew Creamer, which features both, in addition to nourishing MCT oil.
Now for a recipe that will make your mornings more energetic… not only will it offer you the protein, and fats to start your day - but actually optimize your energy. One of the best things to feel fuller longer, and have lasting energy without the lethargic come down is to start your day with fats and protein.
