The Best Teas to Drink in the Morning, Afternoon & Evening

Drink

There’s nothing like a warm cup of tea to start your morning—or maybe you’re all about an iced hibiscus on a sunny Saturday afternoon. Whether you’re just craving chamomile or are looking to ditch your coffee dependency, here’s our go-to guide on incorporating a few new teas into your daily routine! 


Morning Ritual // 9:00 AM

Want that extra morning energy without the caffeine jitters? Switch out your morning mug of coffee for a warm, energizing cup of earl grey. Serve as is or stir in some milk and honey for extra coziness. If you want to spice things up, try chai tea instead! The combination of cinnamon, cardamom, and ginger smells amazing and gives you that nice little flavor kick to start your day off right.

 

Mid-day Boost // 2:00 PM

If you’re feeling a little sluggish post-lunch, beat the afternoon slump with some lemon ginger green tea. Green tea can be a great alternative to coffee in the afternoon when you want that little boost of energy. An added benefit: lemon and ginger work together to aid digestion which is especially helpful after lunch. 

If you’re not into hot drinks, opt-in for a fruity iced green tea instead. Steep some honeydew or peach green tea in hot water for a few minutes and then pour over ice until it’s nice and cool. Enjoy with a slice of lemon, and you’ll feel refreshed and ready to tackle any task. 

 

Evening Calm // 8:00 PM

Slip on some fuzzy socks, light your favorite candles, and fire up the kettle—it’s time to wind down after a long day. Grab yourself a soothing cup of lavender chamomile tea and indulge in some well-deserved self-love. 

 

Bonus sip // Any time of day!

Two words: peppermint tea. Perfect for all hours, peppermint tea is not only good for your immune system, but it can also support healthy digestion so you’ll be feeling great, no matter where you go or what you do.

Not Too Cheesy: Vegan "Cheese" Recipes That Taste Like The Real Thing

Recipes

Nutrition

We all love cheese. And if you don’t love cheese, well, you just haven’t found the right kind for you. If you’re unlucky like me, however, cheese does not like you. Thankfully, we live in 2020, where plant-based cheese recipes are alive and well.

I have been dairy-free for a few years, and cheese is truly the food group I miss the most. As much as we try, we sometimes just can’t get vegan cheese to taste like the real thing. So, I recruited my dairy-loving, cow-consuming friends to be my taste-testers. Their brutal honesty helped me create some “fake” cheese that can actually compete with the real stuff.
