Since not having milk in my drinks I am at a bit of loss of what to drink.  I only really drank black tea with milk and the odd coffee with milk.  Also a few nights a week a glass of beer or lager.  

Can I ask what hot drinks other O's enjoy? I'm not one for herbal teas really but I don't mind green tea and have been drinking that the last few days, but without the milk or sugar I can see me  getting a bit bored with that.  I saw some Dandelion Coffee in the Health shop yesterday is that ok to drink?

Dandelion is absolutely beneficial for O's, you may read about it here
http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/depictor5.pl?138
Dr. D mentions here also dandelion coffee.

The above is from the TYPEbase Food Values, which you can find at the top of this page under Online Support.

I start the day with lukewarm->warm lemon water - squeeze of half a lemon in water + 1 tablespoon of Trehalose Complex.

Carob and cocoa drink is a compliant option, either together or separately, very tasty and very healthy too.

Ginger tea is warming and soothing. There's one which is sensational by a UK producer, Pukka's Three Ginger, and it contains turmeric.

I use .. most likely avoid.. coffeemate.. its a cheat for me..

Yes on the lime and trehalose.. make you feel good, and is good for you..

Water down all juices you are allowed.. that stretches them, change off every day.. to keep boredom down..

For kidney bladder Health use peppermint tea - as medicicnal.. good for any one.. and tasty. after 6 weeks liver spots go away.. or less dark.  


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

Hi & welcome  
I gave up ordinary tea & coffee many years ago...since then I drink green tea only...there´s absolutely no fear of ever being bored as there are some wonderful flavoured green teas available.

I find the taste of ´loose leaf´green tea way superior to teabags. My favourite ones come from a Northern Irish company called suki-tea..available online at suki-tea.co.uk  and some cafés and shops...they have a delicious green tea with ginseng & pineapple...perfect for us O´s!

I also love jasmine green tea, and there´s also a lovely one with raspberries from a company called Niks Tea (www.nikstea.ie ) they also have a scrumptious rooibos tea with ginger and all sorts of lovely natural additions!

Dandelion coffee has a nice earthy flavour, it is probably a good substitute for you for regular tea and coffee as you could add rice milk perhaps or have it black...

best of luck

Hi,

Thanks for the links yaeli, that's great and good to know where to refer to for the food values   I hope that dandelion coffee will have some of the goodness that's in the fresh leaves.  
Trehalose that's interesting, can I ask why people drink that is it more for the taste or the health properties or both?

Carob and cocoa, I never thought of that, I think I'm ok with dark chocolate (thankfully!) I love it.

I also love ginger so ginger tea sounds good, I did actually see some in the health shop the other day alongside the dandelion coffee.  They do sell Pukka teas in there but I didn't see the one you mention, I did ponder over a ginger and lemon one but it wasn't that make.  I will look out for that though.

Thanks Goldie, watered down juices sounds good, I am typical of the O type though, if I drink orange juice I get terrible acid so I will try some grapefruit or other suitable juices.  I bought some Peppermint tea but not tried it yet so will give that a go.

Rosa, the one I am using is Clipper organic and although it's nice enough I find it tends to leave a rather dry feeling in my throat so maybe need to experiment there as you say it could be because I'm using bags that the taste isn't as good, I'll have a look for the one you mention it sounds lovely!I've never tried Jasmine tea (I'm not one for experimenting am I  )  although I did used to drink Rooibos, and that was ok.  I was wondering about the milk with the dandelion coffee - I never thought about adding rice milk - good idea, or as it is will probably be ok too, thanks for the info.

cat2, I was a major coffee addict and didn't find straight green tea appealing (at first).  I phased my way down to green tea, by way of chai, but it sounds like you're already farther along than I was.

I find that Dr. D'Adamo's tea, which is sold at the DPN store http://www.4yourtype.com/products.asp?dept=3 is absolutely satisfying for me.  Because it contains toasted rice, as well as green tea, it has a rich, roasted flavor and more 'body' than other green teas.  I have been happy with it for years.

You could make your own almond milk, by soaking overnight and blending with water, then straining.  If you make it more thick (less diluted), it can make a decent milk for tea.

Is it also possible to prepare almond milk from almond butter by diluting it in the blender?

I keep dried sage leaves and from time to time prepare a glass of tea in a china cup+strainer. It is very thirst quenching.

In the TYPEbase Food Values it is neutral for all types, but in my swami it is a diamond.

I love sage to eat, but now found out I should avoid it as a non-secretor.

Yes, many people do it this way.  The only thing I would watch for is the quality of almond butter.  Some of them have so much added almond oil that it would make for a very oily almond milk.

My favorite almond butter (because it always tastes so fresh, and not too much oil) is Artisana.

I mostly drink water. The only alcoholic beverage I have is some red wine about once a week, and I have hard liquor once or twice a year (only brewed from compliant sources, such as tequila or brandy.)

I sometimes make flavored water with lemon, lime, or grapefruit peels, and/or fresh mint leaves.

In cool weather I'll have the occasional cup of hot cocoa (cocoa powder and molasses in hot water) and in hot weather chocolate soda (cocoa powder and molasses dissolved in hot water, then add ice and carbonated water.) I usually start the day with yerba mate tea.

I sweeten my green tea with fruit juices- only about an ounce to a 16 ounce cup of iced green tea, so it's not very sugary. By varying the fruit juices I use, I vary the flavors.

Hi again Cat2

Some great suggestions on here already. Rosa, I'm going to check out Suki tea too, sounds awesome.

I like Dutchy Organics Jasmine Green tea (you can get it at Waitrose). I also like the Organic Dragonfly Early Grey or English Breakfast roibos teas with a little agave and almond or hemp milk if I'm craving an old-style black tea. Also, Prewitts Organic ground chicory root drink is a nice coffee sub too.

Enjoy!

Andy

Mmmm.
I've given the O tea as a gift, and it's quickly used up.

Thanks for the suggestions!   I've tried Rooibos tea in the past and not too keen but will look for the chickory root drink.  Munchkin76 good to see another from the UK here   I'm much further up north though in S Yorks.
