Tips for Brewing Healthy Coffee

Coffee Bean MugIt’s easy to brew a tasty cup of coffee–or make anything for that matter–that isn’t healthy for you. But there are some easy things you can do to make your daily cup of coffee a bit healthier.

We aren’t suggesting you try all of these options at once, as it could create a rather bad tasting cup of coffee. Just experiment and find out what works best for you and creates a healthy cup of coffee perfect for you.

Use Soy Milk

Adding dairy milk to coffee is delicious, it has a high amount of fat compared to soy milk. In addition, soy milk has more vitamins than dairy milk. If you typically add milk, try using soy milk for healthy coffee.

Watch it if you are Sensitive to Caffeine

Caffeine is very prevalent in our culture and many of our lives, but more people are sensitive or even intolerant to caffeine than they think. If you’ve ever noticed a strange effect after drinking too much caffeine, definitely cut down on your caffeine intake. Of course, we aren’t suggesting you forgo coffee; perhaps switch to decaf or create half-caff.

Add Spices before Brewing

Spicing up your coffee before brewing is a very creative method to brewing a healthy cup of coffee. Cinnamon is a popular spice that is healthy, and ginger is another option.

Cut Down on Sugar and Cream

This is a bit of a no-brainer to be sure; cutting out the sweet will always make a healthier cup of coffee. If you absolutely need your sugar, try using raw sugar.

Use Coffee to Lose Weight

Caffeine has been shown to be able to increase your metabolism, so try adding a cup of black coffee (no sugar or cream) to your diet. If you decide to try this, be sure to accompany your cup with an 8 oz. glass of water as well. If you are sensitive to caffeine, however, do not try this method.
