As any caffeine junkie knows, coffee isn’t something to be messed with. But that doesn’t mean you have to spring for a $6 latte every time you want something better than drip. There’s an easy middle ground, and it starts with making your own healthy coffee creamer. These homemade coffee creamers will add more flavor to your morning joe than a splash of milk or half-and-half, without weighing it down with syrup and tons of sugar. Add one (or a few!) to your Sunday meal-prep routine for better brews all week.
Here are the Kitchen hacks which will act as your life saviour.

Our bodies are around 60% water, give or take. It is commonly recommended to drink eight 8-ounce glasses of water per day (the 8×8 rule). Although there is little science behind this specific rule, staying hydrated is important.
Coconut oil has a wide array of health benefits, hair and skin uses, and utilization around the home. Our grandmothers were using it a decade ago before it became popular and widely available in grocery stores.

1. Don’t waste your time flipping
Now don’t flip out on us, but you don’t always have to flip your food. When roasting items such as French fries and veggies, pre-heating your cookie sheet eliminates the need to flip halfway through. This method isn’t suggested for baked goods like cookies (they wouldn’t look so pretty).
