Your morning coffee with sugar, may exceed the FDA's recommended dose of calories per day. Since sugar mostly enters our system in excess, try adding some ginger or cinnamon to your coffee. They give coffee a rich flavor, anti-inflammatory properties and work well to fend of cold and flu. Cinnamon also helps your body control sugar intake.
Drinking coffee has several health benefits. However, too much caffeine is not quite good for most people but the worst part is that you don’t drink just the coffee but also sugar. And since sugar has quite a lot of negative effects in our body, you might want to reduce the amount of sugar that you drink with your morning coffee.
Basically, coffee is quite bitter in itself, but the aroma is what makes it very tempting. However, when you drink it, you definitely need something more in it, therefore, sugar. To put it in practical terms, even if you take your morning cup with a little sugar or sweetener, many of us get way more than the FDA’s suggested intake in our diets.
If you are, in fact, looking out from more flavor in it, you can replace it with other flavorsome alternatives that will replace the sugar or artificial sweeteners.
In some countries, especially the ones with cold weather condition, coffee is made with ginger and it does taste very refreshing. Additionally, ginger also comes with a lot of healing properties that can help boost your health.
However, you are not much of a ginger lover, you can also add a dash of cinnamon to you coffee. You can also use a cinnamon stick at the bottom of your cup to bring out its intense flavor out to the coffee.
Besides the rich health benefits that you can rip from consuming cinnamon, another good thing is that it reduces your sugar intake.
