Want the full benefits of drinking coffee and a boost of energy too?
Introducing my version of butter coffee for anyone who adheres to a low carbohydrate and high-fat (ketogenic) diet.
Benefits of butter coffee for Ketogenic diet coffee drinkers
There are many diet programs on the market today that promote good health and good eating habits. The ketogenic diet is one of them. The ketogenic diet, or better known as Keto, is a low carbohydrate and high-fat diet which put your body into a metabolic state called ketosis.
During ketosis, the entire body switches its energy supply to run almost entirely on fat instead of carbohydrate.
Studies have found that the Keto diet is not only beneficial for weight loss, but also lowering blood glucose, improving good cholesterol, reducing inflammation, and improving cognitive function.
Those are the reasons why the Keto diet is wildly popular and so many people swear by it.
Most coffee drinkers add sugar, creamer, and flavored syrup to improve the flavor and taste of their morning cup. However, if you’re on a diet program, these enhancing products may put you off track. Or they will make you feel guilty when you drink your daily cup of joe. The good news is there is a healthier way of enjoying coffee.
Add butter! Butter is the new creamer for your morning coffee.
Butter Coffee is made by combining brewed coffee, butter, and coconut oil, and blending it in a blender. You can expect a cup of rich and creamy coffee, just like a latte.
