Supercharge your morning cup of coffee with the addition of fresh rosemary. This easy upgrade benefits your memory and health!
How to Make Rosemary Coffee
You’ll never believe how easy it is to make this rosemary coffee. You really just need a sprig of fresh rosemary that will infuse the coffee as the hot water runs over it.
To start, just place a fresh sprig at the bottom of your coffee filter. Then, add your ground coffee (I recommend always using fair-trade, organic coffee beans like these that you grind yourself).
Rosemary Coffee Upgrade
This health upgrade couldn’t be easier! I’m sure you’re wondering how this Rosemary Coffee tastes? I wasn’t sure if it would be too strong even though I love the flavor and odor of rosemary. You can definitely taste it, but it’s a mild flavor, as if you added a few drops of a flavor extract. But, this flavor is 100% real and healthy and awesome.
Also, in case you were wondering, it’s the antioxidant properties in the rosemary that give it its superfood status, namely, caffeic acid and rosmarinic acid.
Caffeine & Adrenal Fatigue
You might be wondering if coffee is a healthy beverage, especially for women with autoimmune disease? I most definitely battle with adrenal fatigue as well, not to mention living in a state of hypothyroidism now that I don’t have a thyroid. That one cup of coffee is just enough to get me going without getting jittery. I’ve done a lot of reading on adrenal fatigue and find that many practitioners recommend cutting coffee out completely.
I’ve also seen recommendations to limit intake to before 9 am or to try drinking tea or matcha instead. For me, nothing matches the flavor and feeling that coffee gives me. Maybe it’s a comfort thing, but I really love the routine of relaxing with a hot mug of coffee after breakfast.
I guess all of this is to say that a coffee habit isn’t a bad thing, and might actually benefit your health. I’m sure you have undergone your own health journey or are perhaps dealing with something big right now. Whatever the case, I just don’t want you to feel guilty for drinking coffee, especially if you make the effort to avoid adding sugar or processed fake stuff.
You get bonus points for using organic beans and for trying this super-simple coffee upgrade using a sprig of rosemary. Rosemary is one of those herbs that has substantial research supporting its health benefits, including for Alzheimer’s and cancer prevention. And, incidentally, coffee has a ton of research supporting its health benefits, too.
