<article> <section> <p align="justify">Many of us start the day with a hot cup of coffee. And plenty prefer to get going with a fancy, flavored latte from the corner café. But there’s a better (and less expensive!) way to get your fix. By adding a few simple spices and some good-for-you fats, you can get a healthier head start. You’ll feel fuller during the morning and will help your body stay in ketosis while still getting that coffee zing.</p> <h2>Rooted in Health</h2> <p align="justify">The part of the flowering ginger plant we eat is a knobby underground stem called a rhizome. Used for millennia, ginger root treats a range of ailments. Ginger aids digestion, reduces nausea, and fights both the flu and common cold. It also has strong anti-inflammatory properties. Research indicates that it can reduce pain and swelling after injuries. But did you know that it can also help you recover after a great session at the gym? Ginger reduces exercise-related muscle soreness and may also ease your everyday aches and pains. All great reasons to spice it up!</p> <h2>Barking Up the Right Tree</h2> <p align="justify">Far beyond adding a sprinkle of seasonal cheer to your holiday cookies, cinnamon has a range of health benefits that can’t be beat. Harvested from the inner bark of certain tropical trees, the many varieties of cinnamon have different flavor notes—almost like fine wine or perfume. Though the flavor may vary, they all share the same awesome healing properties! Cinnamon is high in polyphenol antioxidants. It outranks 26 other spices and superfoods in scientific studies. That means it’s incredibly effective at helping your body repair damage, fight infection, and generally stay in top form. Just a dash each day can support full-body wellness!</p> </section> <hr class="divider-15 divider-thick mx-auto"> <section class="recipe"> <h2 itemprop="name" align="center">Spiced Coconut Latte</h2> <div class="prep"> <span> <meta itemprop="prepTime" content="PT5M">Prep Time: 5 minutes</span> <span> <meta itemprop="cookTime" content="PT10M">Cooking Time: 10 minutes</span> <span> <meta itemprop="recipeYield">Serves: 1 </span> </div> <h3>Ingredients:</h3> <ul class="ingredients no-bullet"> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">4 tablespoons ground coffee</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">1 cup water</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, divided</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">1 teaspoon coconut oil </li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">1 teaspoon unsalted grass-fed butter </li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">½ cup full-fat coconut milk </li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">¼ teaspoon ground ginger</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">¼ teaspoon vanilla extract</li> </ul> <hr class="divider-50 divider-medium"> <h3>Instructions:</h3> <ol itemprop="recipeInstructions"> <li><p align="justify">Mix the ground coffee with ½ teaspoon of ground cinnamon to combine.</p></li> <li><p align="justify">Using your choice of a drip coffee maker or French press, brew the coffee and cinnamon mixture using 1 cup of water.</p></li> <li><p align="justify">While the coffee is brewing, melt the coconut oil and butter in a small saucepan over medium heat.
