Why You Might Be Missing Me (and Others) on Facebook ~ and What to Do About It!

Facebook Fan Page

I love interacting with my readers on my blog, but I also like interacting on Facebook.

Rich and Delicious Coffee Substitute

Rich, Delicious, and Nourishing Coffee Substitute Recipe - Great if you're trying to ditch caffeine, or for drinking late in the day or in the evening. Contains super healthy ingredients! I drink mine with coconut oil, stevia, and a dash of cocoa. YUM!

For folks without health challenges, there may be some reason to think it is OK, but for anyone with candida or adrenal issues or copper toxicity, I would say that getting off of coffee asap would be a good thing. We can touch on ...Read The Full Post
