When the day doesn't go quite as planned, we usually turn to the fridge to help us deal. However, we typically make the wrong decisions, which actually have an adverse effect on our overall health. Instead of going for the chocolate bars or cakes, here are healthy alternatives to help us get through the day.
Chocolate Milk after Exercising
After a workout, we're usually hungry and end up making the wrong choices. Instead, scientists urge us to drink a glass of milk, which is imperative for muscle recovery and growth.
Cheese as a Toothbrush
If you forgot to brush your teeth before facing the day, have no fear! Eating a small amount of cheddar, jack, or mozzarella cheese will boost pH levels to help keep your teeth safe from cavities. Just... don't make a habit out of it!
Green Tea as Weight-Loss Solution
After eating a hefty lunch, you suddenly remember in less than two weeks you'll be on your tropical vacation. Yikes! Have no fear, drinking green tea helps exercisers lose weight twice as quickly, according to a study conducted by the American Society of Nutrition.
