Are You Addicted To Coffee?

If you’re a coffee addict, it’s time to just say no to that habit. Coffee, even decaffeinated is extremely acidic (one coffee beans contains over 100 different acids) - chronic acidity leads to anything from digestive issues (acid reflux) to chronic illness. I’m not saying that coffee will make your MS worse, but it won’t do it any favors. You need your body and your immune system undistracted so it can keep your MS in check. Do yourself a favor and make the choice to give up coffee now. To help you do this, I introduce you to Teeccino.

http://teeccino.com/

Teeccino is a caffeine-free, herbal coffee substitute. It tastes, looks, smells and brews just like coffee. Teeccino comes in a variety of flavors: Pumpkin Spice, Chai, Java, Mocha, Chocolate Mint and many more. I am partial to the Vanilla Nut Hazelnut and Almond Amaretto myself. So whatever you’re drinking now, Teeccino can likely replace it with little disruption.
Teeccino is:
  • Gluten-free
  • Acid-free
  • GMO-free
  • Organic with Free Trade Ingredients

Teeccino is made from herbs, grains, fruits and nuts that are roasted and ground to get that coffee-like appeal.

If you're going through caffeine withdrawal, it's best to mix Teeccino in with your normal coffee and brew together. Keep increasing the Teeccino to coffee ratio and within about three weeks, you should be a normal, functioning human being again.

I get my supply through Amazon, however you can try a sampler pack directly from the Teeccino website. Teeccino can also be found in natural health food stores and healthier grocery stores such as: Trader Joe's and Whole Foods.

Beating MS!

Easy Sweet Potatoes

Easy Sweet Potatoes
Yields: As many as you want
dairy-free, egg-free, oil-free, soy-free, gluten-free

Ingredients:
  • Sweet Potatoes

Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. After washing Potatoes, pierce with fork
  3. Place Potatoes directly on middle cooking rack
  4. For Sweet Potatoes that are 2-3 inches in diameter bake for 45 minutes, 4 inches in diameter bake for an hour, super large Sweet Potatoes bake for an hour & 15 minutes
  5. Insert a knife to check for doneness; should easily glide in & out

Hoff Thoughts: This technique is great for cooking Sweet Potatoes in bulk. The end result will be skins that peel right off, a nice caramelization & perfectly soft Potatoes.  Top with your favorite flavorings: maple syrup, brown sugar, sea salt, etc. Highly suggest you place tin foil on the bottom of the oven or use something to catch the Sweet Potato drippings.
