It’s no secret that caffeine in coffee and black tea (yes, including Earl Grey) is the offender no 1 when it comes to blood sugar balance. When afternoon slump hits, it’s typical to get a coffee and carry on surfing the spikes and crashes of imbalance for the rest of the day.
To break the cycle, swap caffeine for herbal tea, as there are plenty of great choices to support energy and moods. Go for cinnamon tea, as it works miracles on balancing blood sugar and curbs cravings. Plus, it tastes sweet and nourishing. Liquorish and peppermint tea soothes digestion and is great for supporting adrenals, if you feel rushed off your feet.
