Earlier on my Instagram account, I asked everyone whether or not they were a tea or coffee kind of person. Surprisingly, the large majority of everyone said they were tea drinkers! I thought it would be more 50/50.. but that is still great! I wanted to help sort out the pros and cons of drinking tea and coffee. I also wrote out some tips on how to veganize your favorite morning tea/coffee beverages!

Tea

 

Tea

Pros:

  • Contains antioxidants
  • Hydrates your body
  • Reduces the development of certain kinds of cancer
  • Aids in weight loss
  • Reduces stress
  • Low in calories

Cons:

  • Many teas are full of chemicals and toxins
  • Too much can result in lack of sleep

Tips for drinking Tea:

  1. Always buy organic. (Even research and make sure the material used for the tea bag is organic!)
  2. Use a non-dairy milk, some stevia, and a little bit of cinnamon for a tea latte!
  3. Drinking tea on an empty stomach is great for cleansing your digestive system.
  4. Don’t drink green or black tea for up to 2-4 hours before bed.

 

Coffee

Tips for drinking Coffee:

  1. Watch the amount of sugar and milk you put in your coffee. There could be unsuspected calories lurking in what you add!
  2. Always buy organic.
  3. Avoid using plastic cups; you don’t want chemicals leaching into your morning cup of joe!
  4. Limit your intake to 1-2 a day.
  5. Try to buy whole bean and grind it yourself. Pre-ground coffee can go rancid easily.
