Swap your daily coffee for a fresh energizing drink

Coffee is part of our daily routine and we are under the impression that we can’t carry on with our day without the magic cup. Here are my five suggestions, and I am not talking about energy drinks, I am talking about fresh natural drinks that are giving you the same energy or maybe more than a cup of coffee.

  1. Water and lemon

Drinking water and lemon upon waking stimulates digestion, releases toxins from the liver, jumpstarts your digestive enzymes, and is loaded with vitamin C.

  1. Smoothies

 Smoothies are easy to prepare, delicious, healthy and packed with all the nutrients that your body needs to have enough energy through the day. This is my favourite natural energy drink. If you want more recipes like this one, please click here http://eepurl.com/bbOo_5  and get my free e-book.

2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder or raw cacao

Ice (optional)

Blend and enjoy.

  1. Green tea

For a day swap your cup of coffee for a cup of green tea.  It doesn’t contain as much caffeine as coffee but just enough to give you the energy to keep going. It’s refreshing, full with antioxidants and nutrients that have powerful effects on the body too.

  1. Fresh juice

When drinking a fresh juice in the morning is more like receiving an intravenous infusion of minerals, enzymes and vitamins that enter the blood stream immediately, giving you a natural energy bust. Here is my morning juice recipe:

Carrot bliss

2 carrots

6 stalks celery

2 cucumbers

1 apple

1 handful of cilantro

2-inch piece of ginger

Dash of turmeric

  1. Ginger tea

Ginger has incredible benefits for our health from increasing our metabolism, digestion and circulation. A cup of ginger tea is all any of us needs to get the energy boost we are after.

You can get the caffeine bust without the coffee! I would love to know how you feel at the end of the week.
