Is coffee good of bad? I admit… I love a good cup of coffee! It has a lot of benefits like more energy, weight loss and it’s full of antioxidants. Unfortunately, too much of it can also make you feel nervous, color your teeth or dehydrate you. As with everything, it’s all about balance. A coffee a day won’t hurt and I could never ever give up a good cup of coffee but it’s good to switch things up ones in a while. Here are 7 coffee alternatives for a productive day.
I wonder if there is a cup of coffee out there thinking about me too…
This magical superfood that comes from a plant in the Amazon forest. It’s my number one favorite coffee alternative if I need an energy boost! One tiny teaspoon is enough to give you the same ‘buzz’ like coffee. It also helps with weight loss and improves your digestion. Yes please!
BrainZyme is a food supplement that boosts your brain. It comes in capsules and it’s full of nutrition, vitamins & minerals to
enhance your brain. Not only that but it also gives your more concentration & motivation. When I take one of these in the morning, I am so much more focussed and productive. I really really recommend it! If you use code ‘Farahinthesun’ you get 10% discount! I promise you won’t be disappointed.
3. Yerba mate tea
A traditional South American tea. I don’t think I have ever met someone from Argentina without this drink in their hands. They say it offers the strength of coffee, the health benefits of tea, and the euphoria of chocolate all in one drink.
4. Golden milk
The name sounds delicious and that is what it is! It is usually almond milk mixed with different herbs and spices. The main ingredient is ‘Turmeric’ which gives it a bright yellow or ‘golden’ color. It’s sweet and tastes like Christmas in a cup. Golden milk does not contain any caffeine but it has lots of health benefits and a good alternative if you are a fan of ‘big lattes’.
Matcha is a fine powder and green tea in its purest form. It does a better job than coffee as it increases your energy level but there are no spikes and crashes. Matcha is also better for your teeth and its antibacterial superpowers give your skin a natural glow. It’s a bit more expensive but def worth to try out! Most people drink it as a tea but you can also find many delicious matcha recipes on Pinterest.
6. Chia seeds
A tiny seed with lots powerful benefits. The word ‘Chia’ literally means ‘strength’. It won’t give you a sudden energy boost but increases your overall energy level. Also read: ‘Chia seed pudding recipe for a day full of power.’
7. Coconut water
Everything that comes from coconuts is amazing! Coconut water hydrates more than water and has natural sugars that give you an energy boost. It’s also great after a big night out if you are hung over.
As you see… There are many coffee alternatives with the same or even more benefits. Remember, it’s all about balance and variation. Time to switch it up & try new things. Yum!
