DITCH YOUR MORNING COFFEE FOR A MORE ENERGY BOOSTING BEVERAGE
Imagine this, your alarm goes off, you wake up without having to hit the snooze button, put your clothes on and walk out the door ready to seize the day. You are excited and energized.
If that doesn’t sound like your morning routine, it’s time to say goodbye to coffee and start enjoying the many benefits of drinking green juice.
Green juice in the morning is a great way to naturally boost your energy while also providing you with essential vitamins and minerals like calcium, magnesium, zinc, b vitamins and vitamin c.
Coffee on the other hand, doesn’t actually create the [real] energy we want. The caffeine in coffee stimulates your central nervous system the same way stress does, hence the feeling of alertness. This leads to a flood of stress hormones, mostly cortisol, which in excess can lead to belly fat and serious health issues. Yikes!
So instead of reaching for that cup of joe tomorrow morning, try making a green juice full of vibrant and healthy fruits and vegetables to make sure you get off to an energized start that doesn't leave you with any letdown.
