We love starting the new year with little changes that help us feel our best — such as cutting back on caffeinated beverages like coffee. But sometimes, we still need a pick-me-up to help us get through our day.
Swapping your morning cup of joe for a steaming green tea or matcha can give you the energy boost you need without the jitters — with just 29 mg of caffeine per cup versus the 96 mg in coffee.
