A cup of tea or coffee translates to comfort for a whole lot of people, doesn’t it? It calms us down, and energises us at the same time. But like most good things in life, not having it in the right way can impact your health negatively. So remember to have them in moderation and at a proper time in the day.
Consuming them right at the start of the day, on an empty stomach, is not the best idea. Neither is drinking either of them too late at night right before you sleep. You should also control the quantity that you consume, and make sure your accompaniment is definitely something healthier than unhealthy biscuits.
According to Dr Tejas Limaye, Clinical Nutritionist, Aditya Birla Memorial Hospital, Chinchwad, Pune you can change your habits and habits can change your future.
1. Go gradually. Reduce the frequency and quantity step by step
2. Make these drinks milder, so they will be less addictive and will have lesser damaging effects on the body
3. Have healthier alternatives like – herbal tea (simply boil ginger, tulsi leaves, lemon grass, cinnamon in water), haldi-milk, lemon water, etc.
What can make these hot beverages worse is the consumption of biscuits along with them.
Refined, sugary and sticky nature of biscuits can lead to tooth decay.
