Guys are totally killing it in the kitchen. As per reports, an increasing number of men are the primary grocery shopper for their household. What’s more, 75% of the men prepare meals for others. So finding the best ingredients is crucial–not only for your own health but that of the people you feed.
This is true for your favourite beverages as well. From your morning cup of coffee to your favourite beer, what you drink has as much impact on your health as what you eat. That’s why we asked some of the nation’s top nutrition experts to recommend the healthiest beverages for men. They’re low in calories and added sugar—plus, they’re both nutritious and delicious.
Coffee for the Best Everyday Jolt
You can always keep a bag of this full-bodied dark roast around for drip. Just pour over or French press. It was was never this easy to drink your antioxidants. Plus, you’ll give your metabolism a boost.
Organic Apple Cider Vinegar
Just drop a capful of it into a glass once a day. It is good for improved gut health, more stable blood sugar levels and better appetite control. It’s not a miracle cure or weight-loss treatment, but it sure beats a soft drink, health-wise.
Some green teas have more sugar than a can of soda. Go for the one which has none. But, if you like, you squeeze some lemon or opt for the honey-flavoured one to blunt the grassy taste. And just like coffee, green tea has been shown to increase your metabolic rate.
A can of this slightly sour, slightly salty beer contains nine grams of carbs and just 140 calories. By comparison, a Budweiser has 6.6 grams of carbs and 110 calories. The flavour, however, is no comparison.
Protein infused milk
This “ultra-filtered” milk pumps up the protein. It has 13 grams per glass. Regular organic milk has eight. The fat in the milk remains the same, though, at eight grams a glass.
