Chicory, A Coffee Alternative

Chicory, a coffee alternative
Caffeine, despite the fact that many of us drink it this way, is one of the worst things to consume first thing in the morning. After a full night’s sleep, our bodies get confused with the huge stimulating kick. The caffeine gives a surge of energy, and then inevitably results in a crash later on. Not to mention, it causes food to speed through our intestines, diminishing our nutrient absorption and dehydrating our bodies. There is a happy medium, however. Chicory, is a great substitute for coffee. While containing small amounts of caffeine (50-75mg per cup), it’s nowhere near the 250mg of caffeine in one cup of drip coffee. So hey, why not try it out?
