A Few Great Alternatives To Drinking Coffee
Some reports will lead you to believe that coffee is not bad for you at all, while other reports will try to make it seem as though coffee is absolutely awful; while there is no definitive resolution on this issue, one thing that is true is the fact that caffeine turns glucose (that is, sugar) into fat - and what's more, the sugar and cream you probably add to your coffee will not do a whole lot for your figure either - and this reason alone (along with the fact that it is not great to be addicted to anything in the first place!) often leads people to look for alternatives to coffee. One common alternative to coffee is tea, and while tea does have caffeine in it, the caffeine content is much lower - and what's more, you will probably not have to add sugar and cream to your tea in order to enjoy it; tea is also a powerful antioxidant - which means it will help your body to fight off diseases, and will help to lower your stress level and improve your quality of life as a whole. Another drink worth considering is Yerba Mate - and while some people think of this as a "tea," it is actually derived from a shrub that grows in South America; this might sound as though it would be disgusting (and some certainly acknowledge that Yerba Mate is an acquired taste), but some people find that they truly enjoy the taste - and even more than that, they enjoy the benefits of drinking something that gives them energy without giving them too much caffeine. And finally, you should know that it is possible to derive a lot of energy from drinking the juice of fruits and veggies; of course, you will want to make sure you are drinking only drinks made from 100% juice - and even these drinks will not give you the sort of kick you get from caffeine - but this is a healthy way to keep up your energy when you are trying to veer away from coffee. It is not easy for everyone to move on from that coffee habit - but once you start finding good replacements for coffee, it will become a whole lot easier; and if you are looking for good replacements for coffee, these three options are worth looking into!
