Have you tried replacing your morning coffee or tea with fresh squeezed juice? I mean really given it an honest to goodness chance.
I find COLD fresh squeezed juice is so much more invigorating than coffee. Plus, it’s better for you and more filling. I also find I don’t have that caffeine crash later in the day. If I do feel tired, I’ll grab a coffee mid-day and that takes me through until the end of the day.
If you don’t have time in the morning to juice your favorite fruits, make it the night before and put in your travel coffee mug so you’re ready to hit the road. I bet making the juice takes just as much time as standing in line at Starbucks…
The quicker option: throw the fruit in a blender with water (or soy/low-fat milk) and make a smoothie.
