Brew Wellness, Start the Day Off Right

Updated: May 15

Do you love coffee or the taste of coffee? Are you concerned about the caffeine and acidity? Well, excess caffeine is harmful to health. It can interfere with hormones, cause sleep disruption, increase heart rate and blood pressure, and interfere with calcium absorption. Addiction and dependence, in general, is a weakness and can come in our way of cleansing and fasting. For those who are coffee drinkers, adding herbal supplements will reduce the acidity and keep it more medicinal. Conventional coffee is almost always contaminated with mold which gives rise to a myriad of health problems. So, if you love your cup of coffee, it has to be good quality organic, and tested as mold-free. Whether you like adding an herbal mix to your coffee, trying to wean off your daily coffee by substituting it with a similar-tasting beverage or just using an awesome delicious blend that just tastes like coffee to your recipes, this recipe will come so handy.

Recipe for my very own version of coffee-mastic energy bars-

Roast these gently on low to medium flame in ghee and add 1 cup finger millet flour and 1/4 cup honey to it. (Only finger millet flour needs to be roasted, herbs can be left completely raw if that is the preference. I add honey towards the end and switch off the stove).

In a food processor, grind about 12 oz of activated pecans, 12 oz of prunes, and 3 to 4 figs. Add botanical blend according to taste (from the above recipe), and blend in the gel from one aloe vera leaf until smooth. You are free to switch and use a sweetener of your own choice.

Set it in a pan and divide it into small pieces. I sprinkled some cacao powder on top 😊🙌❤️ Please add an extra heaping dose of love ❤️❤️❤️ and happiness all along while preparing these. Enjoy.

Food should be therapeutic while it is energizing, isn't it?
