Every morning most people start their day with a cup of coffee. Guess what? We have 3 alternatives that are as effective, if not more effective than coffee. These alternatives are better for your skin and your body will thank you for it.
3 Coffee Alternatives:
- Apple: Apples are actually more effective at waking you up than coffee. They don’t contain caffeine instead, one apple contains 13g of fructose. This high natural sugar content helps you wake up! Apples contain a high amount of vitamins, phytonutrients, antioxidants and fiber, which keep the body going. If you exercise at the start of your day, an apple supplies enough fuel for an hour-long workout.
- Green Tea: Many teas (black, green, herbal, etc) are a well-known source of antioxidants, B vitamins, and minerals. Green tea has slightly less caffeine but enough to give you a boost without any of the coffee jitters. Catechins are powerful antioxidants and potent disease fighters that are found primarily in green tea. Extra Bonus!
- Coconut Water: Coconut water is naturally sweet, contains bioactive enzymes and is chock full of rehydrating electrolytes, which makes it a good replacement for sugary sports drinks. It gives a bolt of energy that you won’t expect. Try it!
Bonus: Lemon Water: it’s the simple things that will stimulate your senses. One of the best waker-uppers is water with lemon zest and lemon juice! It doesn’t wear off and leave you feeling sluggish like coffee. Lemon Water is easy to make, has multiple health benefits. It contains antioxidants which help with aging and adds a kind of glow to your skin.
