Title: Chicory - A Healthy Coffee Substitute

Chicory - A Healthy Coffee Substitute
  • Chicory are an invigorating coffee substitute and
    chicory protects the liver against excessive
    coffee and alcohol consumption. Chicory is rich
    in minerals and vitamins which give it a tonic
    and diuretic effect. The liver is a hard working
    organ and one of its purposes is to detoxify the
    body ensuring a healthier younger looking you.
    Adding some chicory to your daily diet will only
    benefit you and you can choose to have it in
    salads, drink it as a tea, or use it as a coffee
    substitute.
  • Chicory coffee recipe
  • Dig up the chicory roots during the autumn
    season. Mince the well washed roots and spread it
    onto baking trays. Place it in an oven to dry
    over night at a very low temperature, the same
    way that you would dry rusks. The low heat
    preserves all the vitamins and minerals for your
    benefit. When the minced root is dry grind it in
    a coffee grinder and store the chicory in
    airtight containers. You may add it to your
    regular coffee or you may use it on its own. Test
    it until you find the perfect blend for you.
  • You can use chicory on its own or in a coffee
    blend for all your favorite coffees too as well
    as a replacement in recipes for coffee biscuits
    and coffee cakes.Chicory coffee crème Brule is a
    lovely dessert that can be enjoyed during the
    summer months and a great way to introduce
    yourself or guests to the flavor of chicory.
  • What does chicory coffee taste like?
  • Chicory coffee has a sweet and nut like smell and
    to me that is how it tastes too, I find it even
    delicious without milk or sugar. I have read some
    reviews about chicory and some people described
    it a sour and undrinkable, I must honestly say
    that is not how I have experienced pure chicory.

Chicory is caffeine free and if you are concerned
about your caffeine intake or want to reduce your
coffee consumption you may seriously consider
using chicory by replacing one or two cups of
coffee a day with pure chicory. I drink pure
chicory instead of coffee late at night while I
am doing some work particularly during the winter
months to keep me warm, I even add half a
teaspoon of ginger fresh or dried to it, because
I enjoy the smell of ginger and I have discovered
that I do sleep better and feel more rested the
next day. Currently no serious side effects of
the chicory plant has been mentioned anywhere,
this could make it an excellent gift for friends
and family or even clients who has never tasted
chicory coffee but does enjoy coffee or
decaffeinated coffee. You can safely assume that
there is no harm in trying this ancient liver
tonic and liver protector. click here
