No matter how good your morning cup of coffee, in the afternoon and in the evening, plus steaming cups in between meals; it is best to drink it at a minimum. After all, too much of anything isn’t good.
However if you can’t put a stop to your daily stimulant and it will take a while before you do quit the habit, here are some tips that can help you make each cup a little healthier.
Have some variety
Coffee isn’t the only thing that you can drink. If possible, look for variety. Don’t drink coffee all day. Switch your cup of coffee for some hot chocolate drink and maybe an orange juice or lemonade. Cola drinks are of course not an alternative as these also contain caffeine.
If you can, look for alternatives to caffeine such as juices and other great drinks. This way, you won’t have caffeine running through your veins, you will also have vitamin C and sugar to keep you awake and alert for the duration of the day.
Eat not drink
Some people drink coffee because they don’t want to eat, either because they are dieting or because they just don’t have the time to eat. This, however, isn’t healthy.
If you are hungry, eat! Just stick to healthy alternatives if you don’t want to gain weight. One example is fruit, which can be a healthy alternative to coffee. Fruits can provide the vitality and energy that you need from coffee and at the same time give you essential vitamins and minerals. Always put some biscuits inside your drawer. Coffee-flavored kinds could be a good alternative to your coffee cravings.
Another good alternative to coffee is oatmeal. Like coffee, it is steaming hot and it provides great energy for the rest of the day. Oatmeal is a great antioxidant which keeps the body healthy and hearty. If you like a taste to it, then choose those packs of oatmeal that have flavors in it such as chocolate and vanilla.
What better way to stimulate the senses and to increase one’s energy than to engage in some activity to start off the day? Of course, this will not seem so when you are just beginning. Your muscles will need getting used to it but eventually you will be able to feel the strength that a physical activity in the morning gives.
