“Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.” ― Robert Louis Stevenson ~ 1/10/18
Great info. I like the caffeine chart.
Finally! Something I am actually doing well in! hoorah!
Excellent article, good need-to-know information.
coffee a major source of caffeine and anti-oxidants has been found to be beneficial for the liver
For me, 2 cups of coffee, a cup of tea and a piece of dark chocolate will work out just fine.
Please note that they amount of caffeine in a cup of coffee or tea depends on the brand, brew-strength, and even the species of plant used.
Caffeine didn't used to bother me as much as it does now. Even diet Pepsi or Coke will affect my sleep. Sometimes it is will be 2-3 in the morning.
For me, it’s not caffeine at all, it’s taste. I brew decaf or regular, cheap, etc. I’ve been drinking watered down coffee since age 5, because a cold glass of milk always made me sick, first thing in the morning. So I got used to it. I never drink any of those popular flavored drinks, can’t stand the sweetness. Black coffee is it . Tried tea, tea does something bad to my kidneys, makes me have to pee right away. I stick to coffee, iced in summer and hot in winter. I’m in my 70’s. Plain water makes me sick!
Coffee is a great treat to enjoy. I think in moderation it can be beneficial. I usually drink tea as well which is calming.
