But first, coffee!
It's amazing how many of us love to talk about coffee, especially moms. The phrase 'But first, coffee' is featured on t-shirts, signs and social media posts everywhere.
My theory is that this obsession with coffee exploded when it became hard to tell the difference between a coffee drink and a milkshake. Who doesn't love a good milkshake?
Growing up, I definitely did not love coffee. My first introduction to coffee was as a child. To be honest, I thought it was disgusting! My dad was the only one in our household who drank coffee. He would fill a travel cup full of black coffee to drink on his morning commute to work. After trying his, I decided I would never be a coffee drinker.
Well, never say never. About 15 years after I vowed I would never be a coffee drinker, I found myself working as a Morning Show News Producer. It was during that period of my life that I learned how to brew a pot of coffee and found myself drinking several cups a morning. This was the beginning of my coffee habit...but I wasn't drinking the same cups of black coffee I tried years ago. I was drinking creamy, delicious cups of coffee filled with sugar and creamer.
Now that I'm a mom, I drink even more coffee. I really didn't think that was possible. What used be a 5 o'clock happy hour with friends quickly turned into 5 o'clock coffee runs. You heard me right...I drink coffee in the evenings too. How else am I supposed to have the energy to get everything done after a sleepless night with a baby and full day of work?
It quickly became obvious that my coffee habit wasn't good for my waistline. Now that I'm trying to lose the last of the baby weight I gained during pregnancy, I'm much more conscious about the kind of coffee I drink and what I put in it. This is a challenge for me because I prefer a coffee rich in flavor.
I recently made it my mission to find a coffee that could help me reach my fitness goals and satisfy my taste buds. I decided to try Caveman Coffee Co.'s Sabertooth Roast K-cup with a tablespoon of 100% Coconut Medium Chain Triglyceride (MCT) oil.
I decided to try MCT because it is easily digested, absorbed, and used as energy for the body. Adding this to your diet can increase your energy. Consuming MCT with other supplements and food can also help the absorption of those nutrients. I was pleasantly surprised because the coffee tasted great and gave me tons of energy. I didn't have to fill my cup with sweeteners and heavy creamer to mask a bitter taste. There is nothing bitter about this coffee! I can easily drink multiple cups of it just as it is. I was even more excited when I found out I could have this coffee and coconut oil delivered to my door each month. That is a big plus for this busy mom!
So, if you want to be more health conscious when it comes to your coffee, I suggest you give Caveman Coffee a try. You can even choose from a wide array of Caveman Coffee products to make your perfect box to be delivered to you each month (and save 10% while you're at it).
In addition to coffee beans, Caveman offers 100% coconut MCT oil (a refined coconut oil), green tea, apparel and brewing products.
