This time of year, millions of people are resolving to be healthier in 2012. Coffee has been found to be healthy in many ways: it contains many vitamins and minerals essential for proper body function, protects against several types of cancers and other diseases, and is the leading source of antioxidants in the US diet!
Whether you’re a long-time coffee fan or adding it to your diet in the new year, coffee can be a very healthy beverage choice. However, adding creamers, syrups, and sweeteners to your daily coffee can negate its health benefits and foil your New Years’ Resolution before it even starts. Just two sugar packets per day in your cup of coffee are an extra 10,950 calories per year!
The healthiest way to enjoy your coffee is black. Luckily, HealthWise Coffee has no bitterness and most of our customers enjoy it this way. If you think you need something else in your coffee, try one of our flavored varieties or some of these healthy additions:
Almond Milk: Cholesterol and lactose-free
Skim Milk: Fat-free creamer alternative
Stevia: An all-natural, no-calorie sweetener
Stay away from sugar, artificial sweeteners which are loaded with chemicals, and non-dairy creamers and flavored liquid creamers, both of which contain trans fats.
