Quite drinking Coffee the Raw way with Maca.

I know that a lot of people have trouble giving up coffee. I gave up coffee completely about a month ago. My doctor suggested I give it up because of acid reflux. I was only drinking one large cup a day of it but giving up that one cup has made such a difference in how I feel. I really feel great and this is the biggest change to my diet in the last month.

This information is straight from a site called rockingrawbody.com. I’ve just started doing this program and it looks phenomenal. I’ll let you guys know how this journey goes.

MACA  F.A.C.A (raw “coffee”)

Getting off the bean may sound like a daunting task, especially if you have tried in the past and gone through the painful headaches that can accompany caffeine withdrawal.  Here is an easy and delicious way to get coffee out of your diet by replacing it with a drink called the Maca F.A.C.A (For Absolute Clarity All-day).  

1 teaspoon Maca Powder
1 tablespoon Raw Cacao Powder
⅛ teaspoon Matcha Green Tea Powder
1 to 1½ cups Almond Milk (click here for recipe and video)
1 teaspoon Raw Honey
dash of cayenne pepper

In a blender mix all ingredients until well combined.  Adjust the Matcha Green Tea Powder as needed to keep yourself caffeinated.  For most ¼ teaspoon in combination with the Maca and raw chocolate is plenty, but there is no need to suffer through the transition.  Maca is an adaptogen and will help you through the change.  It is also a stimulant that helps with focus and mental clarity (and some say sexual prowess- bonus!).  This beverage will give you the pick me up of coffee without taxing your system.  Once you no longer physically crave the caffeine you can cut the green tea powder.
