Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. And, for many of us, a good morning coffee is the key to starting the day with energy. However, coffee, despite its benefits, is also high in caffeine, which can be harmful to health, especially if consumed in excess.

The solution? Chicory. This herbaceous plant, with its blue or purple flowers, is not only pretty, but also offers a healthy and delicious alternative to coffee.

Chicory: a substitute full of benefits

It does not contain caffeine which makes it ideal for people with anxiety problems, insomnia or sensitivity to caffeine. In addition, it strengthens the immune system and fights free radicals. It is composed of minerals that provide potassium, magnesium and calcium. It also helps eliminate toxins from the body and contributes to improving the health of the skin, eyes and hair with vitamin A.

How to prepare it?

There are two options:
1. Soluble chicory: The most practical and fastest way. You just have to dissolve two tablespoons of chicory powder in a cup of hot water and that’s it!
2. Roasted chicory: If you like cooking, you can prepare your own roasted chicory. Cut and wash the root of the plant, cut it into slices and dry it. Then toast it in the oven at 150º. Let it cool, grind it into a fine powder and it’s ready to use!
