Coffee is acidic, so if you’ve recently made some positive changes towards creating a healthier lifestyle for yourself, it may be a desire to reduce or totally eliminate your morning coffee. When Caleb and I first met, I was a border line coffee addict. As soon as I caught myself grabbing a cup of java in the evening, I knew it was time to quite. Giving up a stimulant of any kind can be tough, so instead of going cold tofurky, try swapping out the coffee for something healthier and just as tasty (or even more tasty!). Caleb is my personal in home superfood alchemist, watching him in the kitchen while he’s creating just lights me up.

This creative concoction is packed with super foods and some of them you won’t find in your local grocery store. In the recipe below, I’ve linked some of the sources for these superfoods so you can order them if you like. A raw food diet can be as simple, or as creative as you choose. A drink like this is definitely for you if you’re looking for something special, fun and “gourmet”. If you’re on a budget, you can substitute coffee for a more affordable alternative like yerba matte or it’s milder yet equally energizing cousin, guayusa tea!

Ingredients:

Instructions: Pour hot tea into your Vitamix or Blendtec bottle, add in powder ingredients (I like to add them in while blending on lowest setting to avoid clumping on the sides), then add coconut oil, then finally add in Almond or other nut milk, blend on highest setting for 30-60 seconds, pour and enjoy!

Their life together is centered around real, whole food living without restricting oneself to dietary labels or dogmas. Sheleana believes resetting the body through cleansing is one tool for spiritual awakening in a time where we've slipped so far away from what real food truly means. Her hopes are that through this channel, more people can find what eating path suits their beliefs and bodies best, while honoring the laws of nature and themselves.
