Nutrition Tip #4 Coffee is GOOD for you!
Dec 26, 2011
Drink COFFEE! Surprise, surprise! Coffee is the new green tea! Why? Coffee provides more than just a morning jolt; java is also the number one source of antioxidants in the U.S. diet. That’s right, it’s packed with potent disease-fighting flavanoids (protective compounds that neutralize health-damaging particles called free-radicals) therefore, helping the health of every cell in our bodies. Plus, it has ZERO calories (that means you will need to nix all the creamy, sugary, high calorie additives and go for those skinny lattes or better yet, drink it strong and BLACK and enjoy the true taste of this fabulous antioxidant cocktail!). Just be sure that if you are sensitive to caffeine that you drink decaffeinated coffee instead—don’t worry, you are still getting those healthy antioxidants.
