Full fat, semi and skimmed cow’s milk all contain too many calories to keep you in fast. But if you use an unsweetened plant mylk, avoid ones that come fortified with extra protein and if you’re not adding half a cup at a time, then a little plant mylk shouldn’t make a big difference. As a general guideline, keep the total calories (of your brew and mylk) within the 50kcal limit, so we recommend no more than 50mls of any milk providing the nutrition information states:
In a nutritional analysis comparison of lots of different brands and types of plant mylks we found that it’s Alpro’s fresh unsweetened: almond milk, cashew milk, coconut milk, coconut and almond milk plus Califa’s fresh almond milk that all fit these criteria.
WHY DOES THE BRAVE METHOD RECOMMEND ADDING MCT INTO COFFEE + COLLAGEN?
By blending True MCT into either of our blends you add another layer of fuel to your day. You gain all the nourishing benefits of the hydrolysed collagen with the fuel and ketogenic potential of MCT. In the case of the Coffee + Collagen it could be that when the caffeine wears off, the MCT oils may still have you covered.
HOW SHOULD I PREPARE COFFEE + COLLAGEN?
Our Coffee + Collagen is a Turkish grind which is a finely ground roasted coffee (not instant) and therefore should be used with a French press or Cafetière and add 250ml of hot water. If you just added the water the Coffee would suspend rather than dissolve so it would have a grainy texture. So, if you put 10g into your Cafetière and then pour 250ml of hot water into the cafetière cylinder and make sure the coffee grounds are saturated. It is then best to allow the Coffee to steep for a couple of minutes, then stir and then leave to stand for a further 5 minutes and the Coffee should then settle. If you are taking the Coffee + Collagen with MCT oil, this would then require blending for about 5 seconds until the Coffee is smooth and creamy. Any blender would be suitable.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT FOR OUR COFFEE TO BE MYCOTOXIN FREE?
Mycotoxins are secondary metabolites of moulds and coffee is easily one of the largest sources of mycotoxins in the food supply. Some types of coffee have more mycotoxins than others. There’s no benefit to mycotoxin exposure, and even tiny amounts within regulatory standards may impact the health of some sensitive individuals. The main mycotoxins are Aflatoxin B1 (a known carcinogen) and Ochratoxin A. We have taken the extra measure to ensure our coffee is not just organic and free of pesticides, but also free of undesirable moulds.
