Like many Americans I say every year that I am going to make a better life for myself and my family, and like many I fail. This year I have become bound and determined to keep that promise. My family has been making great efforts to live a Gluten Free lifestyle and reduce our caffeine intake. Recently I was introduced to some great products that are helping us do just that. I am an oatmeal LOVER so naturally I was eager to try this first product TeeChia High Performance Super Seeds Cereal. I received two flavor to try, the Blueberry Date and the Cinnamon Cranberry. I first tried the Cinnamon Cranberry which smelled simply AMAZING! I mixed it as directed and wasn't really a fan of the texture, although the flavor was great. When I made the Blueberry Date I decided to leave out a little bit of water and the texture was much better. I really preferred the Cinnamon Cranberry for a hot morning cereal, I found a great use for the Blueberry Date though! I discovered if I take 1 cup of frozen berries, 1 banana and 1/3 cup TeeChia Cereal it makes for an amazing and filling smoothie! Here are some of the great benefits of TeeChia Cereal:
- Gluten Free
- 6 grams of Fiber per serving!
- 1100 ALA Omega-3 Fatty Acids
- No Sugar Added
- 26 Grams of Whole Grains
- Antioxidant-Rich Seeds & Fruits
The second product that we review here in our household was Teeccino. Teeccino was quite an interesting product, a naturally caffeine free herbal coffee, I know what you are thinking that really isn't that interesting.lol Here comes the interesting part:
- Naturally Caffeine-free:no processing or chemical residues
- Non Acidic:helps restore your alkaline balance
- Natural Energy Boost:from nutrients not stimulants
- Heart Healthy potassium and soluble fiber (1 gram per cup)
- Prebiotics are found in the ground coffee and Inulin in the teebag
I bet I caught your attention at the word Teebag huh?? I was a little curious when these arrived. Basically it is coffee in tea bag form! Have hot water?!? You can have a cup of Organic, caffeine free coffee. Now I will admit I have never had a cup of coffee. So this review was left up to my husband. He was leery at first because of the words CAFFEINE FREE! However after I snuck it into the coffee pot the first time he was hooked! He said the flavor was very deep and rich, he couldn't even tell it was caffeine free. We tried one Teebag to just to see how it worked. It was a pretty cool little thing! We decided they would be perfect for our camping adventures and has since been placed in the camper.
