for energy, no coffee please! it dries out your colon, your skin and plain old just makes you look old. it was the one hardest detox for me.
when i went to the optimum health institute for a week i practically walked in with my last cup of coffee in my hand. i had chills, fever and vomiting while giving it up. it was cold turkey, i mean wheatgrass, and it was hard. i recommend going slower, cutting down and replacing it with something way yummy and warm and just as invigorating without the nonsense of jangled nerves, highs and lows and mooooodiness. when i want a cup of coffee i do this:
boil water for tea. preferably a chinese longevity herb called gynostemma.
i get out the vitamix carafe and into it i put
3 capsules of he sho wou.
3 capsules of pearl powder
1 dropperful of 8 immortals
1 T of cacao
1 t of maca
some agave or dates
1 t of coconut oil
a little handful of cashews
vanilla lots of it
pinch of salt
BLEND- DRINK WARM AND ENJOY :) HEARTWARMING I PROMISE
