#15 While Bullet Proof Coffee Is A Fine Choice To Have In Your Nutrition Routine, You Definitely Can’t Count That Concoction As Calorie Free
Which side would you pick? 🤗 . ☕️ While bullet proof coffee is a fine choice to have in your nutrition routine, you definitely can’t count that concoction as calorie free. Many of the recipes online & in coffee shops call for 2 tbsp grass-fed butter & 1 tbsp coconut oil. Now, that’s a lot of extra calories! . 🥞 Many bullet proof fans use this combo as a way to skip breakfast & you can see why that works out since it’s the same amount of calories. In fact if you were switching from a highly-processed, high-calorie breakfast to bulletproof coffee you would lose weight since you end up eating less calories. . 🍳However if you prefer eating real food for breakfast instead of a drink that right side would be a much better option for you! You could also scale back on the avocado & add 1/2 tbsp MCT oil to your coffee to get some of the added benefits of this healthy fat without too many added calories! . Left side: Coffee blended with 1 tbsp MCT Oil 2 tbsp grass-fed butter . Right side: 1 piece Ezekiel toast 2 medium boiled eggs 1/2 yellow pepper 1/2 red pepper 1/4 avocado 2 1/2 cups spinach Black coffee with stevia.
#16 If You’re Trying To Improve Your Health, Small Changes Definitely Make A Difference Over Time
Healthy swaps add up! 💫 If you’re trying to improve your health, small changes definitely make a difference over time. Here a few ideas to add to your nutrition routine: . 🍁 Agave ➡️ Maple Syrup (or honey) – Agave syrup is highly refined & the end product leaves you with a sweetener with the highest amount of fructose (damaging sugar) of any commercial sweetener on the market. It has about a 2:1 fructose to glucose ratio which is higher than high fructose corn syrup’s 1:1 ratio – yikes! Organic, pure maple syrup is much less processed, better choice & contains up to 24 antioxidants. . 🍒 Flavored yogurt ➡️ Greek Yogurt + Fruit – While the flavored yogurt has 28g sugar & 6g protein, the greek yogurt + 1/2 cup raspberries has 9g sugar & 21g protein. The worst part about this flavored yogurt is the use of food dyes and added fillers/preservatives. You can definitely find a cleaner flavored yogurt but make sure to read the label! . 🍓 Store-bought jam ➡️Mashed berries – Store-bought jam not only contains a lot of sugar but it also contains ingredients like high fructose corn syrup & other preservatives. Mashed up raspberries or strawberries are a great alternative & only contains one ingredient 😉
