Today is National Coffee Day…

but really, isn’t every day?!

Coffee is a big part of my life.  It’s not just the caffeine…I’m actually pretty mindful of that.  It’s the taste, the smell, the whole ritual of it.

I enjoy coffee in the am during my quiet journaling time just as much as I enjoy going out and meeting a friend at a cute coffee shop.

And coffee is not such a bad thing.  It’s packed with antioxidants and studies have shown it can help with mental alertness and retention as well as athletic performance.

My favorite way to enjoy coffee is to blend with a healthy fat, like grass fed butter or coconut oil and some collagen peptides.  This way I’m helping my skin, hair, nails and body while I’m getting my day started.

Since I’ve already written so many posts about this wonderful drink, I decided to revisit a few of them, in honor of National Coffee Day.

Here’s an old one, where I discussed my previously dysfunctional relationship with coffee.  Thankfully we’re on better terms now!

Coffee…friend or foe?

And here’s a super simple recipe for mocha that I love…because chocolate and coffee is pretty much the perfect combo in my book!

Mocha that makes my skin glow?

With the heat we’ve been having here in PA lately, I’ve been digging cold brew as an afternoon pick me up.  Here’s how I like to make it:

Cold brew, part two

But since it is now officially fall, this post wouldn’t be complete without my happy, healthy and hot take on the pumpkin spice latte.  Which I have to admit is pretty great.  And a perfect example of how something can taste delicious and help you look and feel amazing.

Fall means colorful leaves, beanies and the opportunity to wear more pleather…

So there you have it!  Happy National Coffee Day!

Can coffee help you feel happy, healthy and hot?  Sure it can, if you do it right!

You’ll be happy enjoying a hot or cold drink that gives you a little pick me up.  If you blend it with healthy ingredients, like coconut oil and collagen peptides, coffee supports firm, glowing skin and a fit body.  And an energetic girl with gorgeous skin and a sexy body is hot for sure!

  1. Hey Charles, thanks for checking in and so glad you are enjoying the blog! Your latte sounds great! I use different brands of coffee. I use a French press quite a bit but also rely on the Keurig when I’m in a hurry. For the Keurig I buy organic pods whenever I can. In my French press I really like the taste of the Illy beans from Italy, but I try all kinds of different things. I like the Starbucks Sumatra when I want a really dark rich coffee, and have tried several of the organic coffees at Target (their Archer farms brand) that were good.
