U n c o f f e e
Last month my skin was a mess and I got a very red eye😭. Since it was right at the junction of summer and fall, Ayurveda would call it “vata pushing pitta”, or the dry wind of fall fanning the accumulated summer heat, manifesting as unwanted 🔥.
I went to my esthetician @itsalexisrobertson and acupuncturist @yintuitionwellness but also examined my diet.
Since coffee aggravates both pitta (summer) and vata (fall) seasonal effects, I decided to cut back and drink “uncoffee”.
Today’s uncoffee contains:
•chaga medicinal mushroom elixir for gut and immune health
•dandy blend for natural energy
•maca powder for stamina (and smells like caramel!).
Looks and tastes like rich coffee. Black like my heart (like my g-ma used to say😂)
I drink this most days of the week and save coffee for when I have a shit ton of work to do, so it’s a tool and not a crutch.
Coffee can be medicine or poison depending on who is drinking it. It helps to know your constitution, season, and situation to drink it skillfully!
