How to Drink Healthy Coffee

Updated on March 22, 2015

Good to the last drop, it is. No matter how you drink coffee, whether hot or iced, it is a healthy drink according to medical journals in moderation. Drinking more than 400 mg of caffeine is bad. Besides of the giving too many jitters, it also dehydrates you, so you need to drink more water to offset. If you dehydrate, your stools are rock hard and could become impacted if the condition continues (such a pleasant thought, OMG).

Your typical cup of coffee brewed contains between 50-70 mg of caffeine. Two shots of espresso has around 65 mg. If you have ever wondered why you are gaining weight just by spending money at Starbucks, Peets, or wherever, it is because of all the sugar added to your coffee- things like, flavor, cream, icing, chocolate syrup etc. The amount of coffee you get in a Starbucks drink is just about the same as a regular cup plus a large amount of sugar additives to it tastes soooo good. But, after you enjoy this, you just added 400 or calories , lots of fat grams and carbs. If you have several a day, well, there are the extra pounds. Duh!

Drinking healthy coffee is easy in a few ways: just brew it and maybe add a touch of milk or creamer. Low calories and you still get the buzz. The problem is that is ALL you get. No healthy-more aspects.

Chike coffee drink mix solved this. Get the buzz, nutrition, and Starbucks like taste of a latte. What a fantastic product for around $25 for 1.11 pounds. Chike uses whey protein isolate, the purest form of whey protein that curbs hunger and makes lean muscle. You can buy whey protein without coffee, but why not get the buzz also of two espresso shots? Win-win. It makes a great iced coffee drink. Each serving provides this:

  • 130 calories
  • 2.5 g fat
  • 9 g carbs
  • 2 g sugar
  • 20 g protein

It provides about 35-50% of the RDA for vitamins\minerals and many critical amino acids. It is gluten and aspartame free. These specs are very similar to those of NAS Soy protein powder that many use. You can even spike a real cup of brewed coffee with this. It blends very well with any liquid.

If you are going to drink coffee, save money and avoid Stabucks, use Chike, and your body will be healthier as you get your daily buzz!
