25_ Re­cent stud­ies show that up to five cups of cof­fee a day can be ben­e­fi­cial, re­duc­ing your risk of type 2 di­a­betes, heart dis­ease and liver cancer, says Shah. Which means up­grad­ing to a triple-shot can help you on your way to a healthy buzz. Fur­ther­more, a US study found that sub­jects who con­sumed both co­coa and caf­feine to­gether be­fore a test demon­strated bet­ter cog­ni­tive per­for­mance and fo­cus, mak­ing a mocha the ideal pickme-up be­fore a so­porific af­ter­noon meet­ing. 26_ For the unini­ti­ated, this is not, as the name sug­gests, a mem­ber of the panet­tone fam­ily: it’s meat from the throat, heart or stom­ach of an an­i­mal, of­ten a calf or lamb. Un­usu­ally for an an­i­mal prod­uct, it’s rich in vi­ta­min C with your full RDA in a stan­dard serv­ing. Sweet­breads are also less of­fally than most of­fal, mak­ing them a good gate­way meat for those not keen on kid­neys. Soak them in brine to re­move im­pu­ri­ties, then sear in a hot pan. Sweet, in­deed.
