Where can I get my caffeine fix when I don’t drink coffee?

Caffeine. The legal drug of choice for many in the US and others throughout the world. Difficult to avoid when you need to stay up late or wake up early. Nonetheless, many of us consume it, but not all prefer the traditional choice of coffee to get an AM kick. What other caffeine choices are available?

List of caffeine sources for non-coffee-ists, and their caffeine content:

For reference, coffee has 95-200mg of caffeine per 8oz.

Also, caffeine is impossible to spell (“i before e, except after c, or as in -eigh as in neighbor and weigh” — or in caffeine, because… yeah). Two f’s, e before i, and an e on the end. What?

What’s the easiest way to feed my dog a pill?

My signature method for giving our pup a pill is via his favorite treat — a freeze-dried puffed-up liver treat. Just insert the pill into the center of the liver treat (it’s relatively accommodating for smaller pills — large pills, well, you’re on your own), and your dog will swallow the whole thing well, whole. In my opinion, way better (and tastier for the dog) than “pill pockets” or other oddball treats that may contain more than just a single ingredient like liver treats.

Our favorite are the Belly Rubs liver treats, but I am sure others would work as well — just make sure they’re relatively light and airy treats, otherwise a pill won’t easily insert into the treat.
