  1. Soothing Vegan Hot Cacao with Maca Root (for Stress and Anxiety Relief!)

    When I quit coffee, I felt so much better after only a few days (if you want more information on that, click here). But I was feeling a little lost without a comforting warm drink to start my day off with. So I started drinking this hot cacao with maca root. (Cacao is just the raw form of cocoa. Personally, it tastes equally chocolatey to me, but feel free to use cocoa if you prefer!)

    This version of hot cacao has maca root, which is a type of natural stress-reliever known as an adaptogen. I like to drink it in a hot beverage like hot cacao because I personally find the maca root more effective when it's heated slightly.

  2. I accidentally quit coffee

    I Accidentally Quit Coffee. And It Changed My Life. (More Energy, Less Anxiety!)

    “It's just one cup of coffee a day, I know people who drink 3, or 4, or 5... I'm definitely not addicted.”

    “Most days, coffee is the only thing I have to look forward to—it's my self-care ritual.”

    “I can't focus without my coffee.”

    These were all things I told myself to justify my caffeine habit. I'm not the type of person who likes to be dependent on anyone or anything, but I felt sure I wasn't addicted. Until one day, I was really short on money and I couldn't get groceries until payday. That was 5 days away. And I was out of coffee.
