Yes I’m talking about mushroom coffee. Just hear me out.
I love coffee. Really and truly love it.
It’s the ritual and the smell and the taste and all of it. I seriously go to bed at night excited about my coffee in the morning.
That being said, I have taken a lot of breaks from drinking coffee over the years.
I took 40 days off for lent years and years ago. I then took a break from coffee for both of my pregnancies.
I also went through three years of infertility where I would have tried anything to get pregnant. My coffee consumption declined significantly.
Throughout all of it I searched high and low for alternatives that would replace my beloved morning cup. I tried every tea imaginable. I tried chicory, tree bark and dandelions. I tried decaf (what’s the point really?). None of it worked for me.
Then, a few months ago, I had my first bout of anxiety. This isn’t like me AT ALL. I was coming off a six month period of extreme stress so I figured it could be that, but I also couldn’t discount the fact that I was feeling more jittery than usual and coffee could be to blame.
I had also been hearing a lot about adaptogens and mushrooms and their powerful stress relieving and anti inflammatory components. They are truly little miracle powerhouses.
So I FINALLY tried mushroom coffee. Yes, mushroom coffee.
No it does not taste like mushrooms. Yes it has caffeine (real caffeine). Yes I love it.
- Listen to your body. It was HARD for me to decrease coffee when I never felt a difference. It was much easier when my body clearly told me to find an alternative.
Try new things. If you don’t like them (I’m looking at you chicory and dandelions) then stop. Try something new.
I still love real coffee the best and have one 8oz cup a day. But my new alternative makes me pretty happy too.
