Ease Up on Caffeine Without Losing Steam
Caffeine is a big part of our daily lives, not just in America, but all around the world. Especially coffee, it is ingrained into the cultures of many of us. From Africa to the Americas, the growing, roasting, and drinking of coffee is part of our social construct. The problem with caffeine is that it comes in many forms that we love: chocolate, coffee, teas, and sodas. The issue with these are that the forms that we love are often packed with excess sugars, fats, artificial caffeine, and other artificial ingredients.
