SUMMER'S MORNING COFFEE TONIC RECIPE
Coffee is one of the most loved and hated foods out there. People are so for it or so against it. I've been on both sides of the battle. I let go of balance in my life a long time ago. I do the best I can with my diet and my day to day living. Sometimes coffee is really what I need, sometimes it's not. I'm a busy mama, I work a lot, I do a lot all day long. Sometimes I just need an extra boost.
I admit, there is coffee in my cupboard right now. Organic, fair-trade, mycotoxin free (so it says) coffee. I’m personally not at the point where I want to kick coffee 100%, there is a place and a time for it, I find that works best for me is taking time off and using it only when I feel like my adrenals are in a good place. I drink coffee maybe 2 times per week. I use it when I need it, as tool and I truly enjoy it.
What I’ve started doing is making my coffee a healthy and sacred practice I got the inspirations from my Sedona girl and co-founder of Sakara Life Whitney Tingle. She wrote an article over at Mind Body Green all about coffee and making it a ‘healthy experience”. I took her idea and ran with it!
Side note – If you are healing from any disease, cleansing or have just broken a cleanse, step away from the coffee (unless it’s a coffee enema of course!!)
