If you, like me, can't tolerate caffeine but still want to enjoy a cup of coffee, there is a solution to all your problems - roasted chicory root!
It's quite pricey and doesn't taste exactly like coffee, but comes close enough so that even coffee lovers agree that it's the closest alternative.
Apparently chicory root was known and used for its healthy properties already by the ancient Egyptians and Romans. It contains a lot of vitamins, minerals and a prebiotic inulin and is supposed to help digestion, calm your nerves, strengthen your immune system, regulate glucose levels and especially as a coffee substitute, has cardiovascular benefits, too.
