The world is divided into two—Tea and coffee lovers. And both sides have enough justifications to say why their favourite beverage is better. While we know that anything in excess—either tea or coffee is bad for you, we are all aware of the bad effects of caffeine, in particular.
Yes, we know it’s difficult to quit coffee entirely, and you probably won’t do that even if we ask you to. But, you can definitely make your cup of coffee healthier. Want to know how?
- Add Peppermint Oil
One of the best ways to start your day is with a dash of peppermint oil in your coffee. Peppermint has anti-inflammatory properties, it also contains vitamin A and C, and other minerals like iron, magnesium and calcium, which are all good for you.
- Replace Milk with Coconut Milk
If you are lactose intolerant, then this is the best addition for you. Substitute your milk or cream for coconut milk. It contains a good dose of vitamin C, E and B, and it’s good for your bones and teeth too.
- Turn your coffee into Turmeric Latte
Turmeric is another good addition to your coffee. It is an anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory and is also good for the health of the stomach.
- Bye-bye Sugar, Hello Honey!
Ditch sugar and try honey instead, as a sweetener for your coffee. It’s a far healthier and wiser option because sugar, as you know it, is a silent killer. Stay away from it, even if you cannot stay away from coffee.
Aren’t these hacks simple? They’ll not only make your coffee healthier but also more refreshing, and delicious!
