Anyone who has ever fasted, knows the importance of black coffee to get you through.
And plenty of people who have never fasted also know the value of a great coffee first thing in the morning to kick-start your day.
As I have written here before, I am currently doing IMF or intermittent fasting, which is 16/8, so 16 hours fasting and 8 hours eating every day. I have been doing it for 5 months.
There are days when this can be very tough, as you do get hungry, or you feel like a boost, and the ideal way to get through it is with a black coffee, as black coffee has very few calories, and you can have up to 40 calories before your body is officially no longer fasting.
So a sneaky short black of a morning sits within the rules.
But in my quest to enhance my fasting and my health, I have discovered Before You Speak, the rocket fuel of coffees.
Much more than just coffee, this is high performance coffee, as it is single origin colombian arabica coffee infused with super foods.
It contains Turmeric (anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer), Siberian ginseng (helps regulate cortisol) , green coffee bean extract (helps regulate blood sugar and helps with appetite control), black pepper and MCT’s, which help put your body into fat-burning mode.
There are no artificial flavours, it is vegan, and 100% natural and cruelty free. The fragrance is coffee with a hint of something else – I guess that’s turmeric.
It is sold as instant sachets, which you simply add hot water too, and the taste is different to regular instant coffee, but actually pretty fabulous. It’s richer and the tumeric and pepper give it a kick.
It’s also addictive, as it tastes creamier and richer and just a bit different. It is sold on-line, so super easy to have delivered.
This was a life saver during lockdown, but in truth it is a life saver at any time, as it eliminates the need to rush out the door to the coffee shop.
The mantra of the company is to support you and improve your health, well being and performance.
They have just released new sachets with collagen – sounds like I need to place an order.
Each sachet cost about $2.35, which is not bad given the added benefits – you just have to be organised so you don’t run out as you have to then order it again online.

I love a little luxury, but for times when my bank balance isn’t high, some products with a smaller price tag are what I reach for.
