    This week, I have been on a detox regimen, and part of the detox is that no coffee is allowed, and I have been drinking the detox teas instead. I can feel the diffference in my body already, so it is definitely worth doing it for me; but I sure missed my morning coffee.
    Especially the first morning ! I woke up to smelling Bobby's fresh pot of coffee, and thought it was a tragedy to have to drink detox tea.
    Anyway, now I am fine with that; but still missed the taste of fresh coffee. I read through the information again about what is allowed on the detox cleanse, and one of the things they said we could have was herbal coffee.
    Except for Postum, and the instant coffee substitute Roma, I really didn't have much experience with an herbal coffee; but I looked up Teeccino (the brand they suggested) on amazon, and of course, there was a great selection, and it comes in all sorts of flavors. I ended up getting the 11 oz size bags of the loose stuff and it can be brewed just like coffee, and it was a set of three flavors. Next I will probably try the sampler pack, which comes with little tea-bags to make it.
    Today, it arrived and so I had to hurry and make myself a cup and see what it tasted like. I tried the Vanilla flavor first, and the aroma when I opened the bag was almost heavenly. I have a one-cup coffee maker; so I made a cup, and it tasted delicious !
    It is naturally somewhat sweet, and I didn't need to add any sweetener to it to make it taste good. I added just a little of my protein drink as a creamer (since dairy products are not on the cleanse) and a bit of coconut oil, and blended in the Ninja. It was as good as any of my morning bulletproof coffee has ever been, and I am totally happy with this as a caffeine-free coffee substitute .
    Plus, it is made with things like roasted chicory, and barley, carob, figs, dates, and other natural products, and most everything in it was labeled organic.
    So, here is the website for anyone who is interested in this kind of healthy drink, and although it is fairly expensive, it really does not cost any more than the bags of good quality coffee sell for, and it didn't take much to make the cup of herbal coffee.
    Some grocery stores also carry this, according to what I read on the website, one Whole Foods is apparently one of them. I have never seen it at kroger, but next trip I will check and see if they have this drink.

    I really like this herbal coffee ! I have tried the vanilla flavor and the chocolate flavor, and both of them are really rich and delicious. The chocolate one is almost like having a cup of hot chocolate, but it is not all full of sugar like regular hot chocolate is.
    Today I got a fresh coconut at the grocery store, and opened it, and pulverized the coconut meat in the food processor. Tonight, I took some of the coconut , the coconut water, and some almond milk and blended it all in the Vitamix, and then added a scoop of protein powder, plus a little cinnamon and nutmeg.
    It turned out really rich and creamy, and tomorrow that is what I am going to use instead of regular cream. I have been having a cup of regular coffee first thing because Bobby always has a pot made, and then if I want more, I make the herbal coffee.
    It comes in quite a few flavors, and next month I want to order a different sampler pack and try some new flavors of this.

    This is the version of the product sold in Australia, and I love it. Besides dandelion it contains chicory. Chicory contains chicoric acid - which is supposed to help prevent memory loss, according to recent articles in the paper such as the following:
