Here’s A Quick Way To Kick Your Caffeine Cravings

Click Here To ReTweet This Blog & Recipe – thanks!

It’s summer and I’m thirsty and hot – a lot. New York City can be pretty sticky, and I need constant refreshment to get through a day. Try my favorite mid-day caffeine-free latte recipe!

 

 

Back in the day I would cool my afternoon energy lulls with an iced latte or frozen coffee drink from that place that rhymes with “Blahr – ducks.” Since detoxifying my body over a decade ago, I find that I don’t like or want as much caffeine, dairy, and sugar as I used to. Actually, I find that I feel even worse if I have them!

 

What’s wrong with a little caffeine you might be asking? Well, if you’re drinking several (or even one, for some people) servings of coffee, tea, cola, or “energy drink” a day, your sleep can be effected no matter how early in the day you drink it.

 

Your morning cup of tea or coffee can also dehydrate your skin making it look older than it is (horrors!), and makes you urinate more, leading to overall dehydration.

 

If you remember your high school chemistry, you might recall that calcium (from your bones) is an alkaline substance.

 

If you’re drinking caffeine (along with sugar and diary, especially) you can change the pH balance of your body to be overly acidic. There are strong links between regular caffeine use and osteoporosis, because of the acidic nature of many caffeinated beverages.

(Are you more than ready to get off caffeine, sugar, and dairy once and for all?

Still, I like to enjoy a yummy cold drink, especially in the afternoons, and here is one of my favorite recipes:

 

1 cup iced Teeccino

½ cup MimiCCreme

Serve over ice

 

Teeccino is an herbal coffee-replacement that offers a roasted aroma, look and taste just like coffee, without the caffeine. Or the caffeine crash a few hours later.

 

MimiCCreme is a line of non-dairy, soy-free, gluten-free nut creams that make any cream recipe totally amazing. I like the unsweetened version for my iced teeccino in the afternoon, but the sweetened versions are great for desserts, baking, smoothies and breakfast recipes.

 

Enjoy your caffeine free latte!

Heart Disease: Women Should Know These Foods

Heart disease is still a major killer of American woman, and for the most part it’s a disease of diet and lifestyle. Cathy Elton, food blogger extraordinaire, and I connected through the International Food Blogger’s Conference in Seattle, and I saw that she is an expert on helping women avoid heart disease.

Why? Because Cathy was diagnosed with blocked arteries at the tender age of 44.

Read her article and protect yourself with these easy tips:

“People concerned with heart health (or who are cooking for me!) often ask me about which foods to avoid. So it seems like high time for my personal list of top 10 foods to stay away from. I’m not including obvious things like heavy cream, cheesecake or bacon. Instead, my list includes common supermarket foods that many people buy without considering the health consequences. I know I did, before a 90% blocked artery quite literally stopped me in my tracks.
