Teeccino-Coffee Replacer???

Posted on

I am a HUUUUUGEEEE coffee fan. However, I am a picky coffee-drinker. I have to have “the good stuff”. “The good stuff” does not include Folgers or Maxwell House. I would say that coffee is one of the few things that I am willing to spend a few extra dollars on in order to get a quality product .:)

Whole Foods Organic Costa Rican coffee is my favorite at the moment! You get to scoop the freshly roasted beans out of this huge barrel and put them in the grinder and enjoy the smells of fresh coffee as you do it!

On my current eating plan, I cannot drink coffee unless I am “cheating”. So almost always, I will “cheat” a few times a week in order to enjoy a hot cup of joe with whole organic milk and turbinado sugar! It’s delicious but on all the other mornings of the week, I miss my hot cup of joe. It’s not the caffeine-I kicked that habit a few months back. It’s the hot, dark beverage part of it that I miss -and no, I don’t like to have hot tea in the morning-yuck!

So I decided to give Teeccino a try. Teeccino is made with carob pods, barley, and chicory root and then dates, figs, almonds, etc are added in depending on which flavor you choose.

The benefits of Teeccino are the following:

*Naturally Caffeine-free

*Loaded with Antioxidants

*Non-acidic

*Gluten-free

*Pre-biotic

I bought the Vanilla Nut Teeccino because I was a little scared of what the original would taste like. I have to say it was pretty good-once I added milk to it. (But remember I don’t drink coffee black either.)

However, when you try it out DO NOT expect it to taste like coffee-because it doesn’t. But it is a great option if you are looking to cut out your caffeine or can’t handle the acidity of regular coffee.

Although this cannot replace my coffee, I will be using it a few mornings a week to meet my need for a “warm cup of somethin'”

I also made it at work and had a few co-workers (and my parents) try it out! Overall it was a big hit!

Here are some of their comments:

“I love it! It makes me feel relaxed. I love hot cups of cream drinks. I could leave coffee for this. But, I need a good book and some fluffy pillows.”-Cassendra

“I couldn’t replace my morning coffee with this. But I could replace my afternoon Earl Grey tea with it.”-Josh

“It smells & tastes weird. I am not sure if I want to go get another cup or not.”-Paul

“That is good!”-Dad

“I like it! I am going to go buy some.”-Rob

Hello There ! My name is Tiffany and I am on the journey to find balance in life! Now, I’m not talking about anything kooky or mystical, but real true balance and health in all areas: physical, spiritual, and emotional. I figured I was not the only one looking for these things, and thus this blog was born. I am not an expert in all things healthy nor is my life 100% balanced. However, I have been on this journey for a quite a few years and have learned some things along the way. One of those things is that the start of a healthy and balanced life is a relationship with Jesus Christ, my Savior, my Friend, my Strong Tower, and my Balance in those completely unbalanced moments. If you’d like more information on knowing Jesus Christ, please click here http://www.gotquestions.org/personal-Savior.html Welcome Friend, I look forward to our journey together.
