September is the time of the year when we look at getting into a new routine. We are kicking off our September Wehl Challenge with our friends over at Pure Feast to help encourage you to switch up your morning (or afternoon) coffee routine. Instead of reaching for your regular cup of coffee, let’s all try something different this month. It can be a caffeine-free herbal tea, a coffee alternative like chicory, or give a turmeric latte a go.
Share your moments on Wehl using #WehlChallenge to be entered to win a prize pack full of healthy pantry goodies to help you stick to a new “mug routine” from Pure Feast. Post as often as you like because the more posts = more wellness for you and more chances to win! Invite your friends and family who could use a bit of motivation to switch up their coffee routines too.

As far as health benefits go, black coffee has been linked to many health benefits, but it can also have a negative effect on some individuals as well. Moderation is always a good principle and it’s important for us to check in with ourselves and ensure we haven’t become too dependent on it. You never know, you might just fall in love with a new drink to keep you energized without the energy crash!
