It is Vanilla Nut Teeccino (a brand of herbal coffee) with a dash of Trader Joe's soy creamer!
The main ingredients in Teeccino are: roasted carob, barley, chicory root, figs, dates and almonds... ground up to a "coffee consistency." And it brews exactly like coffee! :)
*Confession: I used to drink coffee throughout the day. (terrible!... I know)
After 7 years of consuming caffeine daily, it is time to move on...
Even though there are some benefits of coffee: antioxidents & social-ability<-- a definite plus!, there are many not-so-amazing side effects:
But wait, there is more... coffee is highly acidic. Acidic foods cause your body to produce fat cells to keep the acid away from your organs. Source: Skinny Bitch
Whew! Even though I've known all of this about coffee for awhile, it is helpful to see it all written out! (So much easier to stay on track!)
Do you like Teeccino? If so, what is your favorite flavor?
P.S. I have no connection to this company... it is just the only herbal coffee I know of. Please let me know if you know of other brands! :)
Have a great day! :)
