Don’t drink coffee, drink this instead

July 17, 2019

I kicked the coffee habit after learning what sleep does to the brain: The caffeine in coffee blocks sleep receptor cells in the brain, resulting in sleep problems. Poor sleep results in a whole host of well-documented health problems.

Of course, the thing that makes coffee so appealing is its ability to enhance alertness – it makes the brain think better! I recognized that and went in search of an alternative drink that would achieve (mostly) the same results. I found it. Here it is:

1 cup water

Juice from 1/2 lime

A few fresh mint leaves

A few fresh rosemary leaves

A few drops liquid stevia

Some ice

Put in blender and blend

Then add some seltzer to give it some bubbles
