Anxiety for years and years means limited caffeine and sugars. I would LOOOOOVE to have a pot of coffee to sip on during the cold season, but my heart cannot take it!!! My adrenals just aren't healed enough and I imagine my insides are so inflamed by stress and gallons of Dr Pepper from high school and college, it is going to take time to really fully heal.
So, for years now, my Daily Coffee Routine is I drink 1 cup of coffee around 5:30am to kick off my Quiet Time in the morning with God and a 2nd cup mid afternoon in my quiet hour before the kids arrive home from school. Now that I am healing, I splurge every now and then when out shopping or having Girl Time and enjoy fun coffees and my heart doesn't respond like popcorn, so these are exciting days!!! I love getting to say Yes to coffee anytime!!
Every month I have 2 dips of energy that last 2-3 days each. Ovulation (Days 13-15) and the 2 days Prior to Aunt Flo arriving. My energy drops and feels like I have taken a sleeping pill. It's been consistent like this for years. Knowing that is beneficial because I will boost energy with nutrition or an extra cup of coffee to help think clearly and I can also guard my energy but not planning my schedule to be all in for those days.
People always offer me the Grocery Store energy powders and cans but I just don't want my heart to turn to popcorn and massively crash! I am super thankful for my healthy coffee option and my happy juice, all of which blesses me with healthy ingredients and doesn't make me zoom or crash! Just nice flowing energy!! I am so grateful!!!
Now when I need energy or someone asks for a "cocktail" this is what I make them...my Happy Heart Juice, the Red Juice with Wings!!! I don't drink alcohol, so this is my favorite happy juice to drink and share!! It makes you better!!!!
I share so you know there are healthy options out there all about the same price but way better on your body to process and your heart won't become a popcorn factory!!! Let me know what you think if you grab some! I'll link it here so you can at least take a look!!
And for you Coffee Lovers...THIS Latte is my FAVORITE!!!!! My heart loves this too!!!
