I noticed that, in LR4YT, chickory is OK for Os.  I know that some coffees are combined with chickory and wondered if it might be a substitute for coffee.

Anyone have any info, suggestions?

Thanks!

Some people use the older plants' leaves and eating them like celery. The roots can be boiled and eaten with butter. more commonly, they're roasted and added to coffee or tea for a bitter taste. The roasted, dried root serves as a coffee substitute

Herb has a coffee like flavor and aroma. Unlike coffee, it may have a sedative effect. Some people add it to coffee to offset the stimulation caused by caffeine.

I get mine for "Nutsonline" and about 1 tsp with my coffee grounds for each cup.

Thanks, Deb, I'm not looking for something to add to coffee as I have quit coffee.  Bad girl, coffee is bad for us  

I find I'm doing well with the other changes but I really, really, really miss the taste of coffee.  Tea, although I get 1 cup of green tea a day, just don't cut it.  *sigh* perhaps the craving will diminish with time.  I certainly hope so!

When I first quit coffee I tried Teeccino Mediterranean herbal coffee, which contains chicory and other ingredients, and the taste reminded me somewhat of the intense espresso I was used to. However, there were some avoids in the ingredients so I stopped drinking it. Now I hardly crave coffee at all but enjoy the smell of it every morning when my "A" husband makes his espresso

Chicory Root at a health food store is a good replacement for coffee.  You just need to find the right amount to put in.  It is a little strong. But delicious and it really gives you a great boost for the day.

I've never seen a chicory-based coffee replacement that didn't also contain avoids- typically barley malt. Getting plain chicory root, as Imelda suggested, is a good idea. I've never tried it though- I found Yerba Mate early in my BTD journey and I haven't missed coffee since.

You're right, Ruthiegirl. The Teechino I tried before contains barley malt, which is an avoid for me. Yerba Mate is a bennie and works great for me. I drink it almost daily and keeps me away from coffee

And coffee is a black dot for Gatherers, I'm slowly adding the chicory in increasing amounts and have gotten a coffee pot that fills two different cups at the same time so WH can have is his way and I can have mine my way

What is a black dot?  ER4YT and LR4YT both say that coffee is a no no for Os.

I got a really nice yerba mate and green tea combo at whole foods and it is nice, much nicer than the Lipton green tea, but it doesn't replace coffee.

Thanks, Lola, it's kind of confusing when people refer to other diets here.  I can't do the GTD for quite a while, not until my fingerprints have healed enough that I can tell what they are.

Labrat,
Have you ever been to New Orleans? In the French Quarter, between the River and Jackson Square is the famous "Cafe du Monde". They make the best beignets and chickory coffee.
The beignets are an avoid but I have certainly enjoyed my share of this tasty combination over the years. In fact, my DH is taking me there next month for my birthday. Yes, I will be drinking the delicious chickory coffee while there!!!!!

read ingredients in the brand you wish to buy....compare to your list.....find out about the process it went through to make it instant, ect.....then decide

The guide says that chickory root, which is what the ground chickory is, is good for us.  I'm going to order some and see how it is.  I'll let you know!
