Are you trying to give up coffee? Or maybe just lower the number of cups during the day?
It’s not easy, we know! We absolutely love (or need ?) coffee aroma to get up in the morning.
And when it comes to our health it’s always worth it.
So here some coffee swap ideas for the bravest: a healthy boost of energy without all that caffeine load.
1. Hot cocoa
A smoking hot chocolate it’s probably always the best swap, especially in winter months. We must confess it’s our favorite comfort drink ever. What if cocoa is blended with Reishi mushrooms to support stress and restful sleep? The unique combo of herbs and spices will make this drink your favorite guilt-free pleasure. FYI it’s just 25 calories per serving.
Cordyceps mushrooms are known to improve aerobic performance and endurance and to help those who are fatigued increase energy levels and focus. This energy-supporting elixir is perfect for athletes, clubbers, busy managers. Just have your cordy with hot water in the morning or add the powder into your porridge, yoghurt or smoothie.
Maca root is packed with Vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin C, Vitamins B2 and B6, Calcium, Iron and Copper. They are great to help boosting your energies as well as increasing your immune system, helping Iron intake and digestion or balancing hormones. Adaptogenic herbs and plants have the great power to withstand any high-stress situation in your body, helping it to relieve the symptoms. Maca powder has a sweet-caramel taste which makes it the perfect add-on to your hot-drinks, lattes and smoothies.
Green Matcha tea is probably the best known boost-your-energy-healthy-drink, and not only on Instagram.
It helps concentration and focus and boost your metabolism with less caffeine and added benefits (we’re talking about a huge load of antioxidants here). What else?
5. Mushroom coffee
If you’re not out of your coffee addiction yet but you’re on the hunt for a healthier version you should give mushroom coffee a try. They have medicinal mushrooms superpowers and just taste and feel like your favorite hot drink (good news… with less caffeine).
