Apples and Coffee
December 1, 2017 9:44am CST
If you are anything like me, the first thing you do in the morning is to grab that cup of coffee. There's nothing like coffee to wake you up in the morning. Right? I couldn't do without that first cup of coffee in the morning. So, imagine my surprise when I read an article online that said that apples are better than coffee to wake you up in the morning. What? That can't be right. What about the caffeine in the coffee. My feeling is that it is what gets me going. Caffeine is what gets your brain functioning, makes you wide eyed and bushy tailed, and speeds up the circulation of blood. All that is true, but, there are side effects that go with all that. Apples on the other hand, have a natural sugar contains in them along with the antioxidants and vitamins. These band together to help blood flow, increase brain activity and give your body that energy that you need to wake up raring to go. Plus, there are no side effects. In other words they are a more healthy way to start your day. I understand the reasoning but I just don't see myself giving up my morning coffee. Somehow I don't think waking up in the morning would be as enjoyable. At least to me. What do you think?

Well, I want my coffee in the mornins, it's just what I like to taste. As for apples well I agree with most of what you said about them but if they made me energetic then why is it that after my apple at nite I am not awake and energetic? Hey, I like apples and I know they are good for the heart so I like to eat mine after dinner.

I am sure you are correct. I drink water off and on all night. I am a very poor sleeper and my medication makes my mouth feel so dry. Water is the best to hydrate the body. I eat two apples per day, but I just cannot give up my morning coffee.

I don't think I could swap an apple for my morning coffee. Coffee is the elixir that wakes me up and gets my brain functioning and I can't imagine having to chew an apple to give myself the same effect. I do love apples but not to replace my coffee.
