One of the best parts about mornings is smelling the aroma of the coffee that is brewing in your kitchen. The morning high that follows after a few sips is delightful. Coffee also has anti-oxidants, so it helps your immune system to fight on. However boost your coffee by adding 1.5 tbsp of coconut oil! Yes, the magical coco adds a delicious twist and provides multiple health benefits.
- Boost of energy. Coconut oil is mostly made up of MCTs (medium-chain triglycerides) and these are absorbed super quickly by the body and give it immediate energy. Unlike other fats these simply get converted into energy without adding on to your love handles. Coconut energy >> Caffeine energy, imagine how the two together could benefit you.
- Improve your metabolism. MCTs have been shown to increase metabolic rates.
- Antiviral and antibacterial. Coffee already contains anti-oxidants. However by boosting it with coconut oil you are giving it antiviral and antibacterial properties as coconut oil contain lauric acid. Lauric acid can help you fight cold sores, flu, common cold amongst many other diseases
- Coconut oil helps you suppress appetite, so a cup of this boosted coffee helps you feel full for longer.

Whether you're gluten free, trying to be healthy or just craving pizza - cauliflower crust pizza is the way to go! I honestly never thought I'd prefer it to traditional pizza because lets face it bread it bread but this is yummier because its so much more flavourful. So warning everyone ahead of time: once you taste this cauliflower pizza, you will never enjoy a regular pizza again. Feel free to adjust your the quantities to your taste, and remember if you have a spice really use it, don't just sprinkle it.
