I'm not much of a coffee drinker, usually just once in the week and again on a Sunday morning I will have a Mocha.
I have grown to appreciate a good cup, but I think its best to make it yourself, though there are plenty of shops on the way to work that said in the words of "Spartacus Gods of the arena" are very keen to part you of your money from purse,
"By offering you p*ss and claim it fine wine in exchange for your hard earned coin, I beseech you all pass on this offer or wash sh*t from mouth daily" ( i.e Starbucks Costa, Cafe Nero, and the like).
A few point to keep in mind
*Coffee Can Help You Burn Fat ~ Did you know that caffeine is found in almost every commercial fat burning supplement? There’s a good reason for that… caffeine is one of the very few natural substances that have actually been proven to aid fat burning. Other studies show that caffeine can specifically increase the burning of fat, by as much as 10% in obese individuals and 29% in lean people.

Some people avoid avocados due to their high fat content. Most of us know by now that avocados have the kind of fat that actually help you lose weight.
Avocados are brimming with essential nutrients, including potassium, B-vitamins and folic acid. They also act as a so-called nutrient booster; when eaten with other foods, avocados enable the body to better absorb cancer-fighting nutrients, such as carotenoids, found in vegetables that include spinach and carrots.
Still not convinced?
Eating avocados has been shown to lower cholesterol levels and they are a rich source of monounsaturated fatty acids, including oleic acid, which offers significant protection against breast cancer.
The potassium content in avocados regulates blood pressure and helps guard against heart disease and strokes, as well as aiding digestion and helping the body flush out toxins.
The combination of B6, C and D, riboflavin and manganese found in avocados helps maintain a strong immune system. They are also a good source of vitamins A and E, which help protect against cancer. Avocados are high in omega-3, which reduces the risk of heart disease and lecithin, a type of fatty acid crucial for healthy nervous tissue.
Yes. Avocados are naturally high in fat, but it is mostly healthy, monounsaturated fat that is essential for plump, youthful skin. They also stimulate production of anti-wrinkle collagen, which, together with vitamin E, makes them the best food to eat for a healthy complexion.
So what are you waiting for?, lets get stuck in...
There are some amazing foods that added to your diet can be the missing piece of the jigsaw you've been looking for to help your fitness goals, over the next few weeks I will post my top ten, lets start with the awesome Cacao.
This amazing superfood is where the source of chocolate comes from, so its a great gift to give away, this is one of my three "go to" products in the morning as I normally take it 2-3 x weekly.
Cacao is celebrated as "the food of the gods." It is one of the most nutritious foods known to man. It has the highest known antioxidant levels of any food, as well as a wide array of beneficial minerals, notably sulphur and magnesium. It is widely recognized for the naturally occurring chemicals it contains, which stimulate the happy centres in our brain.
No other food in the world is known to contain as many mood-improving substances as cacao
Who adds this to their smoothies in the morning?

Everyone loves Pancakes, well protein pancakes are very easy to make, you just need 4 basic ingredients: milk, yogurt, eggs and ground oats.
Did you know all four are rich in protein and make a great pancake mix?, the trick is to let the oats soak.
I haven't had pancakes for some time, so last weekend I decided to try it out & since the missus is a Sicilian genius in the kitchen, we had a great time making them!.
Now with this healthier option on the table, especially if you use oats instead of flour you definitely need to let them soak first. If you fry them right away, you’ll end up crunching on oats (bonus the extra chewing will burn more calories..😁) so seriously the soaking step is crucial.
Its always important to use quality ingredients free range eggs, milk and yogurt and mix them up well.
Then comes the part of mixing in the ground oats and let it them stay there for 12-15 mins. Once the mix becomes bit more solid and none are floating at the bottom, then its time to to make the Pancakes ..enjoy!...😁
Here are some Nutritional facts
