Coffee substitutes at work!
Coffee can be good for the body, if used within an acceptable range, and that is between 3-4 cups a day. Heavy consumption of coffee does cause mild physical dependence and harmful effects like nervousness and insomnia. It is perfectly fine to start the day off at the office with a cup of coffee. However, many have more than the adequate range throughout the day, filling their body with loads of caffeine. To improve your health at work, here are three tips of how you can substitute your caffeine intake with healthy alternatives your body will love:
What You'll Need
- Coconut Water
- Carob Powder
- Green Tea
What You'll Do
- Coconut Water: It is a simple, non-caffeinated, and a hydrating way to start your morning. Coconut water is more hydrating than plain water; it contains natural sodium, which helps retain water and a small amount of natural sugar to regulate blood sugar and boost energy.
- Carob Powder: Similar to cocoa, naturally sweet carob powder tastes delicious with a cup of milk. Keep a generous supply of caffeine-free carob powder in your desk drawer to prevent you from experiencing an energy crash during your day at work.
- Green Tea: Less caffeine than your average cup of coffee to boost your energy with loads of health benefits like antioxidants.
