Who Needs Coffee With No Added Sugars Or Caffeine?
Do you need more energy during the day? So do I! That is why I started looking into different types of coffee that could help me make it through the day while being a working mom. I am not a coffee drinker, but everyone else around me is. I knew coffee wasn’t good for me with the creamers (loaded with sugar) that people use and caffeine, so I stayed away from it. But lately, I have been needing extra energy and wanted something to help without using the caffeine and sugars! My mom has been using this brand called Organo Gold for coffee. It is not actually coffee, but it helps with energy and has a similar taste to coffee. There are some kinds of it that I actually like to drink.

Organo Gold Coffee
My parents enjoy the Organo Gold Black Coffee and the Mocha, but I like the Organo Gold Cafe Latte best. The black coffee does not taste good to me, I have to add a lot of maple syrup to mine to get it down. The Cafe Latte is much better tasting. I’m still not a huge coffee fan, but when I need energy this is great!
Why is this stuff so good?
Organo Gold coffee is known to be the king of mushrooms. It not only has a coffee taste, but it has many health benefits. This coffee is made from dried and condensed mushrooms called Ganoderma Lucidum. This coffee is 100% organic and in powdered form, so it is easy to make anywhere.
How do I make it?
Heat up water, then add the package of powder and stir. Thats it! I can do that real quick before work.

Bullet Proof Coffee
This is new to me as well! It is a new concept for coffee. The ingredients include coffee, butter (or ghee), and oil. And learning about butter and oil I know that getting the right kind of butter and oil can have many health benefits. These are great fats to have in our diets. Our bodies need fats and this is a good way to get those fats in. Most people have the habit of drinking coffee every morning already, why not switch to adding butter and fat instead of cream and sugar. Cream and sugar is a good energy booster for short-term gain, but the fat and butter is long-term gain. Which one would you rather have?
Why are the fats good?
Adding fats to your coffee instead of cream and sugar is good for many reasons. For one, more energy. Who can argue with that? And when our bodies are only fed fats and starved of the sugars and creams, then our bodies work hard to burn fats. And when you consume butter and oil in the mornings, it helps to keep you full longer and you don’t have those extra desires to snack all morning.
When using the butter I suggest either using butter made from the cream on the top of milk, or (the easier way) buy grass-fed butter from your local grocery store. The oil they suggest using is called Brain Octane Oil or XCT Oil. “Both of these oils are full of caprylic acid, which is anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antiviral, which carries many health benefits” (healthyhints). Instead of using the Octane Oil, coconut oil could be used as well but it doesn’t have the full benefits of the Octane Oil.
How do I make it?
Start by brewing your cup of coffee and using 2.5 heaping tablespoons of freshly ground coffee. Then add 1-2 Tbs of the oil and 1-2 Tbs of the butter/ghee. After putting all of those together place it in a blender and mix it for about 30 seconds until well combined. Then it is ready!
