Green Tea, Lemon Water, Coconut & Almond Milk Benefits

I have been drinking Green Tea almost everyday for the past couple of years and I have really noticed the difference in my health and have had so much more energy, on the days I don't drink it because I am out all day and have not had the time to make a cup before I rush out I tend to have less energy during the day and don't do so well at the gym. I have been looking for other energy boosting drinks that are not full of sugar and are overall healthy with lots of other benefits, I came across Alpro Coconut and Almond Milk a few months ago when I wanted to stop drinking cows milk, other than them tasting absolutely delicious and makes a bowl of cereal in the morning taste so much better, they also have less calories than cows milk. 

200ml of semi-skimmed milk has 126 calories, Coconut Milk has 40 calories and Almond Milk has 48 calories. If you choose the unsweetened version of the Almond Milk it has even less! Recently I have been drinking a cup of warm water with lemon juice because I read in a magazine all the health benefits, so I now drink a cup first thing in the morning, it has a lovely refreshing taste to wake you up. The water has to be warm, not cold or boiling to benefit, plus there's only 25 calories in a cup. 

I drink so much, especially when I am home studying and working on my shop and blog. My routine is to have a cup of green tea, glass of coconut milk and warm lemon water in the morning with almond milk in my cereal or porridge, throughout the day I drink lots of water and then at lunch time I drink the same again and then just another cup of green tea and lemon water with my meal on an evening.
