Wacky Coffee and a Healthy Lifestyle

I just read the weirdest article about coffee. I was browsing facebook and stumbled across the title: Do you drink coffee & feel tired? You may be doing it wrong. So of course, having a 9 to 5 desk job and therefore drinking a fair bit of coffee, I was intrigued. I am drinking it WRONG?!

I don’t really know who wrote this article, maybe I picked it up from one of those parody news sites, because the more you read the less sense it makes. In the end, it is basically telling you how to blend your own coffee, by adding some sort of butter from grass-eating cows and coconut oil. Whoaaaat?

I do really like articles like this, telling you about healthier alternatives for your apparently unhealthy everyday habits. Not so long ago, I read a blog post about face masks. I have really bad allergies when it comes to beauty products, but this blog post used only natural ingredients. I’m still dying to try some of them out, when I find the time, because I think they might just clear up and hydrate my skin without causing the usual eczema! But anyways, I got sidetracked. The tricky things about these articles and posts is always that I never know how true they are.

Apparently palm oil is bad for you.

Coconut oil is good for you.

You shouldn’t have too much butter.

Sometimes palm oil and coconut oil are listed as ingredients on the wrapping of what I believed to be butter.

And you can bake cakes and biscuits more healthily by replacing the butter with avocado.

But turns out butter is actually good for you, at least when it is in your … coffee?!?!

I’d like to hear from my fellow bloggers, what tips and tricks do you stick with for the healthier lifestyle, and why? But also: do you adhere to scientific research or just whatever sounds nice? And: How do you like your coffee? Mine is black. Black and strong. Preferably filter coffee. Although I do like an espresso after dinner.
