A ketogenic lifestyle is not complete without a good ol' morning Cup o' Joe! Many Keto Dieters use "butter coffee" or a "Keto Latte" to aid them in stable energy levels and an easy way to add in extra healthy fats into the diet.
While black coffee, plain teas, and water is appropriate and allowed during intermittent fasting, a fat fueled coffee is a wonderful morning boost of energy to break your fast that keeps you burning fat for energy. I personally love this Keto Latte for its added fat and nutritional benefits, since I find it hard to always have extra fats in the diet during a busy day.
Lets dissect what is in a "Keto Latte"
Vitamin A: Supports Endocrine System Functions, Reproductive Systems, Vision, Skin, Teeth, Soft Tissues
Butyric Acid: Decreases Inflammation, Combats Insulin Resistance, Weight-Loss, Improves Gastrointestinal Health
Anti-Cancer CLA: This compound helps promote the storage of muscle rather than fat, and as its name denotes it can potentially aid in the protection of cancer causing agents. (1)
Arachidonic Acid (ARA): This supports the immune function and “There is strong evidence based on animal and human studies that ARA is critical for infant growth, brain development, and health.” ()2
GRASS-FED COLLAGEN PEPTIDES
Collagen provides the building blocks for hair, skin, nails, joints and ligaments. It also helps rebuild the gut lining maintaining gut health.
MCT (Medium Chain Triglycerides) OIL
MCT Oil is a particular type of beneficial fat that requires minimal action from the liver to convert directly into fuel in the form of ketones. This is one of the fastest sources for clean energy and fuel for the body and the brain. It converts quicker into caloric energy than carbohydrates and is perfect energy for optimizing performance. MCT oil that is sourced from 100% coconut oil is the purest form, and most concentrated MCT oil.
