Hi Balanced Beauties!
Do you drink caffeine and how much water do you drink a day?
This is such a good question because I am frequently asked if I drink caffeine and how much water I typically drink day to day. All types of liquids are so important in my diet so I figured I would share my thoughts on caffeine, water and all of the drinks that I incorporate in my day to day lifestyle.
First, the answer is YES! I do drink caffeine but I am very picky, considering most regular coffee’s bother my stomach. As a result, I turned to espresso. I have two shots of espresso per day and I love it! I usually do this when I first wake up in the morning to start my day. If I don’t get it in the morning (which is rare!) I will take two shots of espresso before my work out after a long day (almost like a preworkout) and for me, this works like a charm!
I am also a big fan of green tea! On top of the double shot, I will usually have some form of green tea OR any tea. I used to always have iced green tea, but ever since my wedding, I started incorporating more matcha tea instead. I will usually have a matcha tea latte with almond milk or coconut milk. If matcha is not your thing, I would try any regular green tea’s with a splash of honey.
Drinking water is so IMPORTANT to me! I not only drink a lot of water every day, but I started to buy the water bottles or boxes with the extra alkaline with PH and electrolytes. Since I work out a lot, this is important to add back into my body and makes a world of a difference in how I feel.
Also, every morning or night I will have warm water with fresh squeezed lemon OR I will have a shot of apple cider vinegar depending on my mood. Both drinks help with everything from maintaining weight loss to external/internal health benefits!
Since I have a sensitive stomach, I also will incorporate Kombucha (which has probiotics) in the morning or right before I go to bed. This helps my stomach so much. 🙂
