POPSUGAR FitnessSource: Dos and Don'ts For a Healthier Morning Cup
There are many health benefits to both coffee and tea - disease-fighting, metabolism-revving, and memory-boosting benefits, to name a few. But in order to maximize these health benefits, there may be a few tweaks you should be doing to your morning routine. Read on for the dos and don'ts for making your morning cup of coffee or tea even healthier!
- Do: Add Spices: Don't reach for the sugar; add flavor to your coffee with spices instead. Not only do spices contain fewer calories than sugar, but also, you'll be getting a few added benefits. Cinnamon, for example, can help control blood sugar, while nutmeg can help regulate your digestive tract.
- Don't: Add Milk to Your Tea: Tea and milk may be fit for the Brits, but mixing milk with tea actually decreases the health properties of those leaves. So if you're looking to reap some of the cancer-fighting powers from your daily cup of tea, then make sure you leave the dairy out of it.
