5 Healthy Alternatives To Morning Coffee

Katia Arias No Comment

Oh the morning coffee! It sounds so good until… you start feeling uneasy and crash. The Mayo Clinic revealed that consuming even moderate amounts of caffeine can lead to negative side effects. So, if you want to prevent the insomnia, heartburns and mood swings, we recommend you trade morning caffeine for one of these healthier options.

  1. MACA ROOT

Originated in the Peruvian mountains, Maca has become very popular for it’s many nutritional benefits. VegKitchen recommends taking ½ tsp. every other day to decrease fatigue, build up muscle and increase both stamina and endurance. Definitely a healthier and more effective option to give you an energy boost in the morning!

  1. YERBA MATE

Although it contains some caffeine, experts from Livestrong.com state that consuming yerba mate doesn’t cause the crash. Being a mixture of stems and leaves (also from South America), yerba mate has been used as an energizing drink for generations. True it doesn’t have the best taste but the benefits pay up for it!

  1. FRESHLY PRESSED JUICES

Fruits are low in fat, rich in vitamins and have no caffeine, cholesterol or refined sugars. Plus, they have the best taste. If you’re looking to boost your energy levels in the morning try consuming citric blends, add a lot of greens and combine with vegetables and healthy oils. Sure it takes some time to prepare a smoothie, but it can get easier if you have a great recipe in hand.

  1. MATCHA

So, if you must have that caffeine kick, then I recommend you choose matcha green tea over coffee. Why? Well, Epicmatcha.com summarized in two major points. First, matcha contains amino acids that break caffeine more slowly preventing the crash and creating a calming effect instead. And second, matcha provides many more health benefits than coffee. Matcha is one of the best sources of antioxidants out there, it contains many vitamins and it helps with weight loss and anxiety.

  1. WATER

This is a no brainer. Clean water is the most natural and accessible source of energy you’ll find. Drinking water in the morning not only hydrates you but also boosts your metabolism and wakes up your brain. And, if you boost it by adding ginger, citric fruits or honey…the energizing effects will be even higher!
