A Cup of Java

I do love my morning coffee. afternoon coffee. Well, maybe not so much a nightly cup of coffee, a girl’s gotta get her beauty rest! I am sharing thie exceprt below from a post by Paula Owens because I have often wondered myslef, how healthy is this yummy beverage or when is the best time to drink my coffee. If you have not heard of Paula, she is a fantastic resource for Nutrition and Fitness. Her book the Power of Four is a must read for anyone interested in holistic nutrition and natural health.

“Do you love your morning cup of coffee? If you’re going to drink coffee, it’s great before exercise (pre-training), however the worst thing you can ingest after exercise (post training) unless you want a “cortisol fest” and added belly fat. You want high cortisol when you train, NOT after. Add organic heavy cream & a pinch of cinnamon to slow down the insulin spike from the coffee. Need a sweetener?Stevia Plus is the optimal choice. Pass on the sweetened syrups which are loaded in calories, and definitely stay away from sugar-free syrups which are full of high-fructose corn syrup and artificial sweeteners.

Opt for organic coffee versus non-organic coffee due to the high pesticide content in non-organic coffee. Consumer Reports magazine cautioned readers last year about the potential negative health effects of pesticides. The nonprofit Environmental Working Group urges consumers “to minimize exposure to pesticides whenever possible.”…

      Hi Laura,
      Did you mean HFCS (High Fructose Corn Syrup)? Can you elaborate on your question. I do not think I can see your entire comment…

        Hi Laura, after reading your quesiton again, I do undersatnd what you are asking. I found an article that may help explain the answer to your question. Your question seems very logical….and the answer I am afraid is cleaver markeitng. Economics tells us that in order for a product to be successul it needs to be marketable and in the end make a profit to stay on the market. Unfortunatley, it’s the public who’s duped in the end. I hope the article below answers your questions.
