Coffee and why is it good for us?
A growing body of research shows that coffee drinkers, compared to nondrinkers, are:
- less likely to have type 2 diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, and dementia
- have fewer cases of certain cancers, heart rhythm problems, and strokes
- lower the risk of liver disease
and in addition coffee is the number one source of antioxidants in the U.S., according to researchers at the University of Scranton.
The authors of the study emphasize moderation, stating that only one or two cups a day appear to be beneficial.
but key word here I think is moderation, because sometimes a lot of good can become pretty bad. so if you over drink coffee it may cause anxiety or even depression. the best for me it to keep it under 2 cups a day, but most of the time i have just one.
- 170 gr of jumbo oats
- 2 tablespoons of coconut oil
- 3 tablespoons of coconut nectar
- 1/2 tablespoon of powdered stevia(or 2 more tablespoons your favourite sweetener)
- 3 tablespoons of cacao powder
- 1 teaspoon of coarse sea salt
- double expresso shoot
- 80 gr of sliced brazil nuts
- Place you nuts in the bowl, cover them with warm, preferably recently boiled water, add pinch of salt and let them sit for at least 2 to 8 hours.
- I always soak my nuts prior eating, it makes them much easier to digest and helps to get rid of some part of the fat, creating lighter product.
- Drain the water, rinse them and slice the nuts on desired thickness (after soaking they will be quite soft so it's very easy to do)
- Preaheat the oven to 150 degrees.
- In one bowl mix your nuts with oats, in another combine the rest of ingredients, whisking it throughly.
- Pour liquide ingredients over dry, mix till everything evenly coated. Spread on the baking tray and place on the oven for 20 minutes. After time is up, take it out, stir granola, lower the temperature to 100 degrees and place back in the oven for additional hour. Keep checking granola once in a while, making sure that everything bakes evenly, once it feels dry to the touch take it out, let it cool completely on the tray, to store transfer it to the air tight container and secure with the lead. Baking it at the lower temperature helps to save all amazing benefits of the raw ingredients that we used
