Need to Cut Back on Coffee? Use This.
A steaming mug of coffee in the morning can be so incredibly satisfying.
Unfortunately, coffee is not your friend if you (like most people) already have tired adrenals, blood sugar issues or hormonal imbalances. Your adrenals become worn out by things like stress, a demanding schedule or having habitually relied on stimulants – like coffee – for your energy. Blood sugar issues might manifest as getting shaky between meals or having inconsistent energy levels throughout the day. Out-of-balance hormones can show up as PMS, acne or mood swings.
Any of these sound familiar?
If you know you need to cut back but don’t want to give up that morning (or afternoon) ritual, try Dandy Blend. It’s an herbal coffee substitute… that actually tastes like coffee!
It derives its full-bodied flavor from things like chicory and dandelion root (hence the name). As a bonus, dandelion is great for your liver and chicory promotes healthy digestion. Plus, while coffee leaches minerals from your bones, Dandy Blend actually provides over 50 trace minerals per cup.
Pretty great, right? You can read more about it right here.
1 heaping tablespoon Dandy Blend (I like a strong flavor, but you can play with the amount)
8 ounces steamed/warmed almond milk
or 4 tablespoons full-fat coconut milk with 6 ounces boiling water
Dash of cinnamon
The roasted roots create a natural sweetness, so I don’t find that it needs any added sweetener, but you can add a few drops of stevia if you’d like.
Experiment with it on your own – I’d love to hear any recipes you come up with! Drop me a note on Facebook and let me know.
