Now I know what you're thinking... "Emmaline, surely coffee is not good for us is it?"... Well, you're right, it's not great, but at the same time it does have some benefits!
I'm leering you into a false sense of security here, as this week I am going to focus on coffee. The good, the bad and also how you can cut back (I guess you would call that 'the ugly!').
I thought that we would start on a positive though and let you know all the health benefits that come along with drinking coffee.
I will have to note, this is for coffee, and not for a sugar ridden, high fat, dairy laden latte. If it was, I would be there at the front of the queue with my recyclable coffee cup at the ready! So, keep on reading why this tasty little drink can actually benefit us...
IT CAN BOOST YOUR PHYSICAL & MENTAL PERFORMANCE
We all know how a coffee can impact our productivity right? Feeling a bit sluggish in the afternoon, coffee can really help to give us a 'pick-up'.
I have also heard that it is great before any physical activities such as going to the gym. It can enhance your performance and help improve your overall workout (as long as your body has the correct genes to break it down, otherwise it can actually slow your workout!)
