In the United States alone, more than 150 million Americans start their morning with a cup of coffee every day. Coffee is pretty synonymous with energy, but what if you could get that comforting, tasty, and fulfilling morning energy another way? Swapping your morning coffee with bone broth has become something of a trend, and those folks giving it a try are finding they’re pretty surprised by the results!
To start, coffee does give a pretty instantaneous energy jolt and it will make you feel awake when it’s part of your breakfast routine. That said, coffee will only take you so far. Too much can lead to anxiety, jitters, and headaches in some, and it will typically come along with that telltale “coffee crash”. The coffee crash is why surveys have found that most American coffee drinkers drink up to 3 cups every day to keep themselves going through the morning, at lunch, and to get over that post-lunch slump. The end result for many? A finicky foggy feeling that can leave you feeling less than your best.
Drinking Coffee Also Brings You Caffeine
What caffeine does is block the adenosine receptors in the brain from telling you just how tired your body really is. When the caffeine wears off, adenosine receptors get back to work and your body can suddenly tell just how much adenosine is coursing through your system, thus leading to that “caffeine crash”. Bone broth soup, on the other hand, gives you energy in a pretty different way.
Bone broth is a nutrient-dense broth soup with amino acids, minerals, protein, and low carbohydrates. Glycine, a particular amino acid found in bone broth, is crucial to the nervous system for maintaining energy and clean focus. The result many find when drinking bone broth is that they get lasting energy that doesn’t result in a dramatic crash after just a few hours. The body takes time to break down and use all of the many nutrients in bone broth, so you’re giving yourself what you really need as well as clean energy that lasts.
While many think that soup has to be a lunch food, bone broth fits right into a delightful morning routine. Warm, easy to drink, and delicious just like coffee, it fits right into your favorite travel mug to comfort you all morning long. Swapping out your coffee for clean bone broth might seem like a challenge, but its one that many and more are finding has surprisingly wonderful results!
