Teeccino!

Awhile ago, I gave up coffee.  Partly because it didn't do much for me, manly because it's very acidic.  But, I still enjoyed my weekend morning ritual of reading in bed, while sipping a warm, tasty beverage.

That's when I discovered the wonderful world of Teeccino!


What is it...

Teeccino is an caffeine-free herbal coffee.  It tastes and looks just like coffee.  It's primarily made from herbs, grains, fruits and nuts that are roasted and ground to get that coffee-like appeal.

Best part of all, it's organic, completely GMO (Genetically Modified Organism) free and it's ingredients are Fair Trade sourced - happy dance!


Is it healthy?

Teeccino rocks, because unlike coffee, it's not acidic (a coffee bean contains over 100 different acids)!  Think you're good because you drink decaf?  Not so fast, decaf has even more acidity, lets not even get into all the chemicals used to get that caffeine out of there.  To be at our best, we want our bodies to be in an alkaline state, but we get acidic by eating more acidic foods than alkaline foods.  The body will leach minerals from our bones and teeth, just to get back to a balanced state.  Got acid reflux?  You're too acidic, cool it down!  Even worse, a chronic state of acidity leads to chronic illness, not cool.

Teeccino also supports good cardiovascular health with two heart-healthy nutrients: potassium, an electrolyte mineral and soluble fiber.  Not to mention all the antioxidant properties coming off the carob, dates, figs, barley, cocoa and almonds stomping down the free radicals having a party in our bodies at our expense!

As it has no caffeine, Teeccino is safe for moms-to-be and insomniacs to chug away.  Instead of relying on the caffeine to keep you going, you'll get a natural energy boost from all the nutrients in this stuff.

Teeccino can help with digestive issues as it contains the prebiotic, inulin.  Inulin is a soluble fiber from chicory root that supports a healthy population of beneficial digestive flora, essential for good digestive health and health in general.  In fact, each cup of Teeccino contains 650 mg of inulin - nice!

Teeccino is also gluten-free - hooray!

All that in one 20 calorie cup - how do they do it?!?


What to do with it...

Teeccino brews just like coffee.  So, you use it just like coffee.  Add ice for iced coffee, just like Starbucks.

If you're going through caffeine withdrawal, it's best to mix Teeccino in with your normal coffee, brew it together.  Keep increasing the Teeccino to coffee ratio and within about three weeks, you should be a normal, functioning human being again!

Teeccino comes in a variety of yummy flavors: Pumpkin Spice, Chocolat√©, Chai, Vanilla Nut, Hazelnut, Java, Mocha, Almond Amaretto, Chocolate Mint - that's not even all of them, try to get bored, I dare you.


I take it just like I used to take my coffee: 1 spoonful of Molasses, 2 spoonfuls of Agave & enough Vanilla Almond Milk to make it light and creamy - mmmm, heaven...


Where to get it...

I get my supply through Vitacost.com, although Amazon does sell it as well.  Or try a sampler pack directly from Teeccino.

Even Dr. Oz is a fan - check out this video of him singing the praises of Teeccino!

Good to the last drop!
