Down in the south, I think most of us choose between two caffeine options: coffee and classic sweet tea. However, there are so many others that will provide less crash after. Which caffeine chose is best for you? Let's take a look at some options...
Coffee straight up: you know this will give you an energy boost, but the crash is almost inevitable. Ever wonder why you feel groggy after lunch? It could be your coffee. If you find yourself riding on the struggle bus after lunch, try adding milk to your coffee!
Loveable Latte: Like briefly mentioned above, milk can help you curb the side effects of the coffee crash. I'm a latte girl through and through!
Unstoppable Bulletproof coffee: Do you know what this? If not, you should learn: it's taking over the health and wellness world! Basically, you add in a fat (butter, ghee, etc.) which also helps curb the caffeine crash. If you're interested, here's an article on how to make it. You can also use coconut oil in your coffee and it's delicious. Check out Coffee in My Veins.
Black tea (with sugar please): This has the lowest caffeine count out of all the options listed here, but it could help you if you struggle with a hard crash. Your body knows what to do with the caffeine so it'll still work on giving you some energy. Plus, is there anything better than a nice sweet tea? I'm skeptical.
Cha Cha Matcha: Matcha is a powdered tea coming from the green tea family. However, you actually drink the leaves (they've been powdered down, so no need for a tea bag!) and since there's no tea bag, you actually get more caffeine than steeped tea. Another plus? It induces relaxation without making you sleepy!
We never have a shortage of caffeine around this office, but sometimes it's best to look at your options - especially if you're experiencing a crash midday. What caffeine option is your go-to?
