Drinking coffee is a sacred event to me. I am not one to take a sip and leave it on the counter to get cold. I only prepare my coffee when I am ready to sit down and savour it as part of my daily ritual.
This is especially truer now in my life that I have chosen to reduce my coffee habit down to only one or 1.5 per day. It makes that sacred coffee even more sacred!
I used to drink four cups a day, all before 9 am. For real. It was when my kids were little, I was exhausted all the time, and I was under extreme stress and pressure with the business I had at the time. And my health was suffering as a result.
Now I am finding natural ways to boost my energy with coffee alternatives such as elixirs, herbal teas, fresh fruit waters and more. I have made the switch and seriously reduced my coffee intake because my cortisol and hormones were giving me big signs that the coffee was doing more harm than good.
If you can relate, then keep reading to find out what to drink instead that is still fun, brings you joy and is as tasty as coffee!
