Coffee – tbh I am a once or twice a week kinda gal. Some weeks none at all 🤷♀️ For me, it has never been a big part of my life, but for so many of my clients, friends and family, the thought of parting with their brew is unheard of! 🙉
When it comes to coffee, I’d like you to think about three main points:
☕️ If you have anxiety, hormonal imbalances, or get the jitters from it, you might benefit from regular routine breaks. At the very least, see how you go without it (after that first 5-7 days of withdrawals!). Replace with dandelion, turmeric, matcha or chai latte’s or teas;
☕️ Secondly, if that is your main intake of cows milk, and you have multiple coffees daily, I’d look to cut down not only to reduce caffeine consumption but also dairy. That combination itself can contribute to IBS symptoms. Switch to soy, almond, black coffee or cut down altogether;
☕️Lastly, it is without a doubt one of the most pesticide-sprayed crops… 😬 so know where you are getting it from and opt for organic where possible. Even if just at home, so you can be less fussy when out and about.
I should also mention investing in a reusable cup as a top priority! this pic was taken before I bought mine, but I love it now & won’t buy a hot drink without it! 🙅
I hope this helps... Eeek don't hate me😅xx
