YOUR NEW MORNING TONIC ELIXIR
I quite coffee (for the 50th time) last week. This time I went though pretty bad headaches which was new for me. I think I may have actually been addicted. Yikes! I had been getting a bit sick feeling every time I would drink it, so I knew I had to stop. I do everything all the way so I quite chocolate and any stimulates too. Lets just say it was a hard week. I came out on the other side feeling great and vibrant with my own energy… I did had a little raw cacao back in because I just love it. This tonic elixir loaded with goods has been my go to morning pick me up drink since I quit the beans.
This morning elixir has gynostemma as the base, a caffeine free tea that is known to support the live and act as an adaptogen (meaning is adjusts to what your body needs…), cacao as a healthy stimulant – do be aware of where it is sourced, chocolate can be high in molds. Tocos for removing toxins and helping the skin, collagen for skin and bones, mesquite and maca for natural energy, ghee for the carrier, colostrum for the gut, vanilla for flavor and antioxidants, stevia for see and a little salt for balance. Enjoy!
MORNING TONIC ELIXIR
1 cup warm gyostemma tea (I love Spring Dragon)

1 teaspoon mesquite
1 teaspoon maca
1 tablespoon of ghee or coconut oil
1 teaspoon colostrum from Mattole Valley
1/8 teaspoon powdered vanilla from Bulletproof

pinch of cinnamon for topping
Blend it all together until frothy and wonderful. Pour into your favorite cup and savor each drop.
