You might be wondering if coffee is good or bad for you. Can you indulge or should you avoid it? As is often the case, there's no one-size-fits-all answer. If you tolerate coffee well, then by all means enjoy a fresh pot, a cappuccino or latte. If, however, drinking coffee gives you heart palpitations, makes you feel restless or exacerbates your hot flushes, then the logical thing to do is to cut it out of your diet.
Even for those of us who do tolerate coffee well, it's important not to overdo it. Experts recommend a maximum of two to three cups per day. It’s also best to avoid having any coffee after 2:00pm, as it can negatively impact the quality of your sleep.
Coffee is associated with numerous health benefits, primarily because of its antioxidant content. These benefits include protection against diabetes, Parkinson's disease, depression and certain types of cancer. That said, here at XbyX, we advocate for getting a sufficient amount of antioxidants primarily through fruits and vegetables.
Our Cappuccino Shake recipe is quick and simple to make. It’s a combination of a shot of espresso and our protein-rich XbyX Daily Energy - Protein Superfood Shake, which is the ideal foundation for a range of nutritious shakes, smoothies and cereals. Daily Energy gives you all the added proteins and superfoods you need. It’s a wholesome way to kickstart your day or to simply enjoy it as a healthy snack.
