Random circumstances have reduced my intake of caffeine this past fortnight, because there just hasn’t been any around the house, except a pound of Newman’s Own that I can’t grind for want of a coffee mill. and I just don’t see myself whacking each bean individually with a hammer, just for the added jolt each morning.
The point, after all, is to reduce a headache, not add to one. My issue here is that, despite imbibing fewer stimulants, I’ve been if anything a bit more wired at times, and I think it’s because of ginger-root!
I have these ginger-flavored Altoids, and they do really wake your mouth up, but yesterday evening, I happened to be having some sushi with dinner, and it had those shavings of ginger as a garnish, and I was just as wired as could be at bedtime!
So, try ginger. Do it gingerly….
