The Best Coffee Substitutes
Timothy Moriarty: There is no substitute for coffee, plain and simple.
LMFAO: Timothy Moriarty I have a feeling Timothy , you're the type of person to like you're own comments.
Bob Ross: @LMFAO Oh yes! It's wonderful! I don't feel any residual effects at all. Only down side is, it makes your teeth brown and breath bad. so brushing is a must before bed. Brushing ruins the taste for me,that's why I do it before bed.
Jennifer Myers: Roasted Dandelion Root tea (I buy the Traditional Medicinals brand; organic, non-GMO) is a FANTASTIC beverage. It tastes really good and is caffeine free, so it can be consumed anytime of the day. Dandelion Root has some evidence of aiding liver function and digestion, too, so if that's of interest to you, then I highly recommend you try it (I recommend it to everyone, regardless)!
Jennifer Myers: Sounds good!!
Briar Rose: Jennifer Myers My daughter sings it's praises too! She LOVES it! Plain and made Keto. We only buy Traditional Medicinals too. I am really not sure if there is a health difference between the roasted and the root varieties though. In some places they actually call it Dandelion Coffee and it is the main morning drink. I bet they all have healthy livers. I did read though that it shouldn't be consumed for more than 2 weeks at a time, then take a break. Not sure why.
jgreg95: Avoid caffeine? What you talkin' bout Willis?
Briar Rose: jgreg95 Cover your eyes if you must, but drink that morning brew. Lol
Le Karkx M: Anything gluten free?
Briar Rose: Karkx M Traditional Medicinals Dandelion tea. In some countries they actually call it Dandelion Coffee.
