I am a complete caffeine head, not going to lie, it is my drug of choice. However, sometimes, with the insomnia and jitters, I need to take a step back. Like everything, everything in moderation.
I do not plan to kick this habit, but sometimes replacing my afternoon fix with something less buzzing, i opt for a cheeky R.Y.E instead. Think a chocolaty, vanilla cuppa of awesomeness.
Carob is a great caffeine free replacement for the afternoon. If you are trying to cut back but cannot cut back on the ritual, try my Cacao Vanilla carob latte.
