I have been raking my brain for something to write about. Since, it’s been a while since I have been in the studio, I was coming up empty for something to share with you this Tuesday.
My writer’s block was exacerbated by the fact that I spent 4 days at “Food as Medicine”, a wonderful class about the healing power of food. It was by far the best class/conference I have been to. However, since I am not used to sitting in air conditioning all day, or even sitting all day, I am exhausted. And there was so much information delivered that I am still trying to absorb it all. Suffice to say, I am one tired puppy.
So I went downstairs, looking for a pick me up. Since I gave up coffee a few years ago, pouring myself an aromatic brew wasn’t an option. But I have recently discovered a delicious alternative. It’s called Dandy Blend. It’s a mixture or chicory, dandelion root, and roasted barley. While a recent taste test with a friend of mine confirms that it’s not quite a perfect substitute, it was deemed a good substitute. A good way to help you break your coffee/caffeine habit.
Because of the dandelion root, it helps keep your detox pathways working properly. And yes, that is a very good thing, especially for those of that do come in contact with heavy metals.
I like to drink mine strong, mixed with almond milk and a touch of stevia or agave. Here is my special brew in a Matt Hyleck tea bowl. Because Dandy Blend should be enjoyed in the beauty of a handmade cup.
Inspiration finds itself in the most mundane of tasks.
What do you use as a pick me up? I invite you to share your ideas below.
