Everyone has their own way of making their morning wonderful. Mine is getting something warm and yummy in my hands. I spent about 4 months without coffee when I was doing AIP. It wasn't fun - BUT I DID IT! AIP made me feel like I could do anything and everything. But back to this perfect cup of coffee. I have recently mastered it. This cup puts a smile on my face! And its SIMPLE! Everyone has a different opinion about if coffee is good or bad. I thin it depends on the human - but I have found a few things that are better than others. I know the coffee is best when it is ORGANIC AND FRESHLY GROUND! These two things are key to making sure your getting the benefits from coffee!
Typically in the morning I stumble to the kitchen, with one eye open. Grab my whole bean coffee from the freezer to grind and start the hot water to boil. From there I grab all the things and my favorite mug - these days it seems to be my Yeti as all my mugs are still packed up. While the coffee is grinding and the water is boiling I go ahead and throw EVERYTHING into my mug... Collagen, CBD, Maca and Hemp Milk. By this point, I can put the ground coffee and hot water into the French press. While I'm waiting for the longest 8 minute of my LIFE. I go ahead and run around to start all my diffusers with some morning oils. Typically I like Citrus Fresh, Peppermint, Awaken, En-R-Gee, Pine, Stress Away... I could go on for days with morning oils.
Back to coffee. By this time my French press is ready for a good stir before I press it! Once it's pressed I pour my cup about 1/3 of the way full so I can stir the powder clumps away without spilling anything. Once the clumps are gone I fill it up with space for some foamed hemp milk and then walk over to my yoga mat to start to wake myself up with some morning stretches
Once I go for my second cup, I like to add extra protein to give my body some more loving!
